Returning from years ago — The Bump

Returning from years ago

Ugh.  Where to begin. 

I was was active on these boards back in 2013-2015 when we went throu 3 failed IUIs and 3 Failed IVFs. My diagnosis was shitty eggs.  

We we decided to carry on with life since I was in my late 30s at that point. 

Fast forward to 4 weeks ago. Went to OB because of bleeding. She asks me when I was at re did they ever mention endometriosis?  Um no. What the what?  

Had a lap on Wednesday. Stage 4 endo, endometrioma from each overly removed, both tubes removed and polyps removed. 

Now it’s kinda rekindled my hope, even through I’m 42 now.  What if?  So dangerous, I know. Anyway headed back to the re to go for IVF 4. I have nothing to lose at this point. 

Welp, here I am! 

Sending much love to you all xoxo

    I’d definitely seek out another RE. As far as infertility diagnosis go, the endometriosis should have been readily caught by an RE. 

    I am sending you so much sticky dust for your IVF! Any idea on a timeline, or will it be months away?
  • Wow!  Welcome back.  That is heartbreaking to think you could have gone through so much treatment back then all with a missed dx.  Sadly, I think it happens more often than it really should.  Fx the lap does the trick and you get lucky this round!!!
