Pregnancy chances after endometriosis removal?
I recently had a laparoscopic surgery to remove endometriosis. I had it on both ovaries, but no where else. My doctor also did a chromopertubation & found that both my fallopian tubes are healthy & free of blockage. Prior to the surgery, I had been TTC 19 months. My doctor said I should be able to get pregnant, but that there are no guarantees. Then again, she told me that after 9 months of TTC and got my hopes up, which SUCKED when she labeled me “infertile”. =(
Have any of you gotten pregnant after having endometriosis?
Mandy, hypotetically right after the surgery you have higher chances to get pregnant as the endometriosis has just been removed (mostly). But first you need to recover from the endometriosis surgery – that usually takes about 6-8 weeks, if you really take it easy. The surgery is a shock for your organism, and it needs time to heal (stuff has been cut from you…). Dont rush it. You can support your recovery and attempts to get pregnant by using endometriosis natural treatment that has had great results for many women (including me). It does not go against anything you do with your doctor so that way you can do something extra for yourself and your future family.
Wish you good luck!
I have endometriosis, Will Taking BC help me increase chances of pregnancy?
I was wondering if any other women out there who has Endo has tried taking Birth control for a few months then stopping to try to increase fertility to get pregnant?
Has this worked?
Please let me know because I think I might start BC.
I know BC stops Endo from spreading.
I have had Endo since I was 19 and I am now almost 24.
Hi Ruth, it is usually recommended by medical doctors to use BC pills when you have endometriosis as they help you to feel less pain during your menstruation. The other side of the coin is that with the BC pills you may just “cover” your symptoms for a while when your endo is silently developing anyway and once you stop the pills, you may have problems to get pregnant again. I was using the BC pills, then strong hormones to simulate menopauses and always after that, my endometriosis came back (before I found the final solution so I am fine now). However, if you are not planning to get pregnant right away, you can try taking the BC pills (good idea for that purpose: -) while you use other forces for your endometriosis cure. What helped me was a natural treatment and I cured completely. I would never go back to surgery or hormones, all the recovery and side effects were just too bad. If you are interested, you can check out a book by Shelly Ross, Treating Your Endometriosis, that explains in detail and step by step how to cure your endomteriosis naturally.
All the best!
