I've long been a reader on here, but just recently joined so I could comment/post.
After 9 years of unexplained infertility, I finally had surgery last month and found out I have severe Endometriosis. They zapped everything they could, but there is still a large growth on my colon that is too risky to mess with. My RE is conservative about my chances of conceiving naturally post op, and thinks it's better to go the IVF route and hopefully get me pregnant quicker before some of the Endo comes back. Currently we are planning our IVF cycle for November with likely Lupron for a month or 2 and then FET in January after hormones have calmed back down. Anyone out there with similar experiences? Anyone going through IVF with Endometriosis currently? Success stories or unsuccessful stories of Severe Endo and IVF? In a perfect world I would get pregnant naturally before November comes around, but I'm aware my chances are slim.
