    Default How quickly does Endometriosis grow back?

    I have just had a laparoscopy done 2 weeks ago, and they found and removed moderate endo in my pelvis.

    I want to give my body a bit of a rest after surgery and m/c, and don't plan on doing another fresh IVF cycle until end of September.

    Is it too risky waiting this long to cycle again - will the endo start to grow back by then?

    I want a break but not if it means the endo comes back and then Im back at square one.


    Advice please??? T.I.A xoxox

    I haven't gone thru IVF but I have had endo. We tried for 4 years for DD, then being pg the endo calmed right down. Then when she was 8 months it resurfaced. I know I didn't have surgery but thought I would reply, HTH

    Thank you for your reply Delirum
    Yes my FS said that the only way to put it into kind of remission will be to fall pregnant.
    I am just wondering how much time I actually have to get pregnant before it starts growing back....I worry because I think it may have had something to do with my m/cs and dont want to start another IVF cycle only to have had it grow back in my 'time off' and then I miscarry again! (if that makes sense)

    Congrats on your little miracles xx

    well when mine come back at 8 months I didn't fall with my 2nd child until my first's 2nd birthday. So I had it back for 1 year and 4 months and fell pg in 6 months of trying. So I guess I'm saying even if it does start to come back, it usually doesn't come back full blown in the first month.

    I hope you don't mind me suggesting... and I know FS's often scoff at them... but have you considered seeing a naturopath? My endo was so bad I would be in the fetal position almost screaming every month. One cycle with vitex and seeing a naturo after 54 failed cycles and I was pg

    and I will add... after the birth of my 2nd child, I have had zero symptoms of endo in 5 wonderful painless years. Don't give up hope

    I was on the vic/nsw border at the time but she has shut up shop.

    I can't recommend them highly enough. Vitex,(to even out the estrogen dominance most with endo have) EPO, fish oil, zinc and vitamin E (for healing of the scar tissue) are the main herbs they prescribe. Some will add a few more.

    Mine was on the top of my uterus and the Pouch of Douglas, which causes painful bowel movements around AF.

    As I said FS often hate them, but they do work, I've known heaps of success stories from women with such bad endo the gynos were suggesting a hysterectomy

    I havent yet seen a natropath, but I have started getting acupuncture fortnightly.
    I have heard a lot of women praise natropaths so I think it is something I must look into.
    I am lucky and have never had any pain with endo, i think thats why it went undiagnosed for so long! my only symptom really was heavy periods, and my second miscarriage is why my FS decided to do a laparoscopy.

    Im glad you shared your story del, gives me hope that just because i have endo doesnt mean i wont have kids

    I had a lap done last year and I was told I wouldn't have to worry for about 18 months., mine wasn't too bad but enough to worth having the op.

    My fs said either being preg or being on the pill is the only way to keep it at bay! But boy was having that lap the best $3500 I spent! Painless periods now!
