Road ahead...

Husband tested January 2009 - all normal. I have ovulated last 5 months consequtively on 50mg clomid. (Have progesterone tested every day21 to confirm if ovualtion has occured) Had a laparoscopy on 26/03/2010, dr confirmed both tubes are open, ovaries good, no scarring, did a d& c for good measure. He found minor endometrisosis behind womb which was removed with laser. My husband and i are both 27 years old and neither have had children before. Neither drink nor smoke. What can i do now? Could the endometriosis which my dr found be the reason why i havent fallen pregnant? I would appreciate your valuable input. Kind Regards

Dear Mommy to be

You have done all the necessary investigations and I would believe that your treatment at this stage is adequate. I would recommend that for the next 3-4 months you try naturally and avoid the use of Clomid. The use of ovulation monitoring tests would be a better alternative to the day-21 progesterone as it has more predictive value and will also guide you when your ovulation is likely to occur. This will assist in timing intercourse more accurately. If after 4 months no pregnancy has ensued then you may need to review the likelihood of fertilization failure or some form of embryo related problems, and this is best undertaken by a fertility specialist.

Hi Mommy to be.

In my experience with infertility endometriosis can cause you to struggle to fall pregnant. The exact amount I am not sure of. Maybe your doctor can give you some medical advice on this point.

How does your husband feel about this? Do you support each other?
