Dear Maki

The chances of success will depend on whether your tubes are patent or not and whether the endometriosis contributed in a significant manner to your fertility problem. It is known that endometriosis regresses or gets better after a pregnancy but will recur subsequently after a period of time and therefore may well be contributing to your fertility problem at the moment. However i would recommend that you visit your gynecologist to have yourself re-evaluated and to decide whether in-virto fertilization is the best option. It is also significant to note that your age is advancing and this by itself may make it more difficult to conceive.

Hi Maki, your post gives me hope. What stage was your endo? Mine is on stage 4 and it is so good to hear that someone with endo conceived. My darling I dont know if naturally is possible but I think another IVF will give you more miracles. Did you have an laparotomy?
