I am booked to see the doctor on the 29th July and I will have to get keyhole surgery to see if I have endo and if only a small amount they will burn off then, if to much I will have to go back for surgery.

    Hi @jvt83 and @Lilybug198
    Sorry to hear about your diagnoses, it's normal to feel anger and grief at what's been happening to your body.

    I've found doing a lot of reading is really helpful, check out your local library or I found a book called Endometriosis by Andrea Molloy on the iBooks store really helpful.

    It's really important you get a good specialist, I had one to begin with who was quite dismissive and I switched - so much happier with my current dr. It can be useful to come up with a list of questions before you see your specialist as well.

    Hey Guys,
    So I just wanted to post here. Its day 32 and I don't have my periods yet. How soon can I take a pregnancy test? also had bad cramps a week ago and thought I was getting my periods but didn't come. doc reckons I ovulate day 19-20 in my cycle so don't know when I can take the test. Not getting my hopes up as hubby and I have being TTC for over 3 years now. fingers crossed I am though.

    Hi @jvt83 you can test whenever you like - 11days past ovulation is usually pretty safe so I reckon give it a go.

    Priceline sells some Australian brand tests that are really cheap but First Response Early Result is the one that gets the earliest result.

    Good luck

    Hey Girls,
    Just an update, I did a test (first response) yesterday arvo, but came back negative :-( Its day 33 still don't have my periods, maybe its too only to tell. Fingers crossed. I don't really have any symptoms accept did have slight cramps this morning and yesterday morning also and headaches but had a hypo (low sugars) last night, so don't know if the headache is from that.

    How long is your cycle normally? And do you know how many days past ovulation you are?

    normally around 27-30 days (longest has been 32days once before) and the doc thinks I ovulated at day 19-20. so maybe its too early. i'm hoping for the best. and she said to call her Monday if I don't get my periods. (this is what made me think I might be pregnant) and because temps are ovulation are still high...

    i have just been finally diagnosed with endometriosis its taken the drs a while but my ivf specialist had me do an MRI and he picked it up straight away so i feel relief knowing the source of my pain. i have had my left tube removed due to scarring and am about to have my right one removed in the next couple of months i also have a septate uterus and im getting the septum removed as well. i have been quite ill with the endo though lots of bowel problems that had to be fixed in my last surgery as well and lots of vomiting as well cant wait for it all to be cleaned out and maybe feel a little less pain!!

    @Lilybug198 I am sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with endometriosis. You are not alone and once treated you will feel so much better. Here is my recent journey with PCOS and endometriosis.

    My periods since I was in my mid 20s (I am 38 now) have been very irregular and when they come, I get excruciating period pains along with non stop vomiting, which lasts for about 3 days and severe dehydration, which would nearly always land me in the emergency department at hospital. I would also consume a lot of panadeine forte and numerous anti vomiting medication, which would only help a little.

    The painful periods, vomitting and the fact that hubby and we have been TTC unsuccessfully for the past 3 years made me see the doctor middle of last year 2013. I did an ultrasound where the doctors found I had PCOS.

    Keyhold surgery was performed and it was while the doctors were performing the surgery that they found out I had severe endometriosis (One of the more severe cases the doctor had seen, he told me).

    On the 5th of August this year, I had a laporoscopy to remove the endometriosis. Since the operation, my periods have been pretty regular coming at the end of the month (I have had 3 cycles so far). Furthermore, the pain is gone, slight cramping is all I feel now. I only had to take a nurofen on the first day of my period and I am fine. I am amazed at the change!

    Note: some doctors will try and tell you that you can still get pregnant without treating the endometriosis (not easy to do), or that once you are pregnant the endometriosis will stop growing, please do not listen to them. Get the operation, endometriosis can cause a difficult pregnancy and the higher chance of a miscarriage, especially if it is a severe case.

    Hubby and I have been trying to conceive for the past couple of years and now realised the endometriosis was the issue. Now that it has been removed and my periods somewhat in a normal, regular cycle, the doctors told me I should not have any problems conceiving soon, as a normal cycle indicates a success with the operation.

    You are not alone in this, but take comfort that if you have the operation your life will be so much better! Good luck!

    Hubby and I decided to give my body 3 months to recover before TTC.
    I have been testing with the clearblue ovulation kit and I seem to get my LH surge pretty much 14 days after my period Nothing like before where I may never get a LH surge or get a peak a couple of times in the same cycle (indication of unsuccessful ovulation and the body trying again at a later stage).

    Now the 3 months is up, I got my smiley face today after testing for the last 4 days. So, once hubby comes home from work... ... fingers crossed!
