    Have only read the OP and am just quickly popping in to say Zolodex is my friend - notwithstanding all those hot flushes! :-D My beautiful baby boy was born after my first cycle using zolodex and we're now trying for a second. It is definitely possible. Good luck!

    faithandhopellove, Toots001, Felicity Fox and Vixjc, THANK YOU! I'm so afraid to hope but your stories make me feel that I may still have a chance! I'm so happy to know that you were all successful!. Sending prayers and positive thoughts to both faithandhopellove and Felicity Fox for a smooth and successful pregnancy! Thank you also for the link on Prof Tremellen's research paper. I will have a look at it. The main reason I decided to go ahead with an FET and then zoladex down reg was because I didn't want my eggs to be affected anymore than they already are because of endo. I started taking prednisone 10mg a day along with my prenatals, but IVIg or intralipids are out I'm afraid because my IVF clinic does not believe in it and my insurance won't approve without the doctor's order. I'm also hoping to take DHEA, metformin and COQ10 for 2 months before I start my protocol so that my eggs are in optimum shape. Two years ago on my first IVF, they retrieved 12 but only 4 fertilized. They said all had very thick zona pellucida (shell) and I read that toxic pelvic fluid due to endometriosis can do that to your ova so it's very difficult to naturally fall pregnant unless through ICSI during IVF. I'm just taking everything this time in stride because this is going to be my last IVF attempt and if it does not succeed, I'm just going to accept my destiny without kids. I'm so grateful to all of you for giving me hope! Thank you and God Bless you!

    Hi ladies

    I'll soon be starting my second round of IVF and my FS at Repromed has suggested that given the minor, small patch of Ademo it could be worth not doing a fresh transfer, and instead going on suppressants (she didn't mention what the drug/s are called or any side affects) for 6 weeks then having a frozen transfer. Reading your stories had made me hesitant because of the side affects and I'm not sure how I would cope at work, but also hopeful. Our first round didn't result in any healthy embryos, so we don't know if implantation is an issue too. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi @MrsZebu before my last transfer I did three months of Zolodex to address my adeno and I really didn't notice much in the way of side affects at all apart from a little joint pain in the third month which stopped once I got pregnant (I am now 12 weeks along). I also got pregnant on the cylcle before my current pregnancy after doing two months of Zoladex but miscarried at around 6 weeks. So for me I had two BFPs in a row after using Zoladex - prior to that I did four and a half years of IVF and only one other BFP in that time (miscarriage at 6 weeks). I am absolutely convinced that the adenomyosis was preventing me from getting pregnant, but my adeno sounds like it is much worse than yours as it is more diffuse and widespread and yours is much more localised. Not only can adeno cause implantation issues it can also cause early miscarriage so I would certainly give the Zoladex a try. Wishing you all the very best on your journey. FFxx

    @Felicity Fox thank you so much, that's really helpful and encouraging. And I hope I'm the same as you and don't get many side effects. I was surprised at how well my body responded to the other hormones, so hopefully this is the same. I'm a teacher, so hot flushes and/or mood swings wouldn't be a good mix. Congratulations on your pregnancy! How wonderful! It sounds like good things do come to those who wait! 😊

    Hi Mrs Zebu. I had treatment with Zolodex for 3 months and found the worst side effect was the hot flushes. I work in an area where I have lots of contact with people and move around departments quite a bit. While I sometimes felt quite uncomfortable nobody else ever seemed to notice. For me they passed pretty quickly so allover it wasn't too bad. I just kept reminding myself that it increased my chances of a THB. I didn't get the mood swings.

    Good luck with your next cycle.

    Hi ladies, just wanted to update for anyone reading through the thread (because I hate not knowing the outcomes) - I was commenting on this thread a year ago and just got my BFP after three miscarriages in my first cycle on Prednisolone. I was bleeding and was unsure if I would miscarry for a 4th time. I'm happy to report that DD2 is now 6 months old and all was well.

    Best of luck to everyone

    Hi ladies,
    It's great to hear all of the success stories!! It certainly gives me hope!!
    I have just started Synarel spray which I believe does the same as the other suppressants to combat adenyo. However I am concerned my doc has only suggested 6 weeks. We tried this same protocol last cycle & it failed. I realise you can't expect for a new protocol to work first time, but I am concerned it is not long enough..
    I have also asked to be placed on steroid/antiobiotics before transfer as this was recommended by Dr Tremellen. I did see him for a second opinion but stuck with my clinic as they have better sperm donor options, otherwise I woupd have used him for sure!! I am hoping there is someone out there has had luck using Synarel! 👍
    Cheers,
    Hopeful Mama

    Hi AllyFunk.
    I know this is an old thread but I'm currently in the same boat now with an incarcerated uterus. It's so uncommon that it's nearly impossible to find information about, so I was grateful to stumble upon your posts! My concern is that my doctor has never seen an incarcerated uterus before and knows nothing about treating it (eg manually flipping the uterus, which I gather may be the treatment you had, from your veiled description?).
    I'm desperately looking for an obstetrician with specialist knowledge of this condition. Would you mind sharing any information/dr recommendations you might have? I see you're in QLD (I'm in Sydney), so this might be a challenge in itself. But I am just so desperate for help at the moment, and worried about what could happen to the baby. Perhaps even a QLD based doctor would have contacts in NSW with this experience etc, or could enlighten my doctor (who is great and open to learning, but just has no knowledge in this area!).
    I have read stories from other mums on forums whose babies died in the second trimester as a result of a lack of treatment, and am completely terrified.
    Thank you so much. x
