Hi – I am new to The Bump and while not new to not conceiving, I’m new to the next few steps of fertility. We’ve done clomid, but we are now moving up. DH and I have been trying to conceive for three years and I’m 35. DH is 7 years younger and doesn’t have issues – it’ all me. In the last 5 months, we’ve identified a cyst the size of a plum on my left ovary and I had surgery a week ago to remove the cyst. While they were in there, they found endometriosis and everything it can bring with it with a vengeance. What should have been a 1 ½ hour laparoscopic surgery became a 4 ½ hour clean out job with abdominal cut. I’m recovering now, but we also learned that my right tube is blocked by endometriosis that couldn’t be removed. Initially we thought my tubes were clear as we did HSG, but apparently not. So, I think the next step for us is IVF. I don’t talk much to people about fertility, but it seems even the ones I do talk to come up with all of stories of people they know and what they think happened to them that I just really need to talk to people who are living it before I make myself crazy. So, thanks!
