    I have been doing acupuncture for 8 weeks now. Not sure if it is doing anything physically, but it defiantly helps me with the emotions. My husband says every week I home home from acupuncture I am more positive. I think it is very holistic, I think the needles are only a small part of the treatment. My acupuncturists aim is to get me too ovulate and get a period, still no luck yet. But it's nice knowing I am giving myself every chance to succeed.
    To the ladies with endometriosis did you experience symptoms? How is it diagnosed? I asked my fs if I should have a laparoscopy prior to ivf and he said no it's not required. I thought it might help rule out or diagnose any other issues before I spend a lot of time/money/emotions on ivf. Is anyone else starting ivf without a laproscopy?

    Welcome @Sally girl and @GeorgieNE and @MckyD. The ladies in this forum are lovely and very supportive.

    I got my report on my Day 3 embryos. Very interesting as I was actually emailed a report by the embryologist which I never received in my last cycle in Oz.

    Of the 17 embryos, all are still alive.
    6 are a "Grade 1" which is "good quality" at 8 or 7 cells.
    6 are "Grade 2" which is "fair quality" and also at 8 or 7 cells.
    5 are "poor quality" at a Grade 3, but are still growing. They are 6 cells or less.

    I am a little shocked and humbled at these results. On my first cycle we had I think 4 embies at Day 3 and 2 who made it to blasocyst for a Day 5 transfer. With these numbers I think we will have many frozen embryos left from this cycle, something I did not anticipate. Feeling very blessed and excited…even though I am not even PUPO yet and it may still be a long road.

    Hey Sally,

    When I first went to a FS, it was because my AF was AWOL for a couple of months, and the FS said no worries, go away, you're young so just focus on TTC (I was 32).

    I went for a second opinion and the second (my current FS) asked me for a full family history, asked questions about my cycle (apparently spotting for a couple of days in the lead up to AF is a thing), and importantly by then I'd done some research and discovered that the years of 'bad tummy' I've lived with can be related to Endo.

    So there was a pretty clear picture diagnostically, including several months of ultrasound scans which showed an endometrioma that was growing.

    FS said she'd put money on my having endo and it being severe. Lap was done in February and she was right it was all over the pouch of Douglas. I'm lucky not to have had it in my organs.

    It's frustrating that I have had many investigations for Crohn's disease, IBS, celiac etc over the years and always mentioned that I thought there was a link with my AF and cycle. But that's common for endo - it takes ten years on average between onset and diagnosis.

    ...that said, if your FS suspected it for you - 1. They would have told you it was a possible concern, 2. The treatment might not change (ie you'd still need IVF).

    Hope that helps, call your FS up and ask for some clarification if you are really worried about it.



    Oh and to answer your original question, my symptoms were:
    1.infertility
    2.large endometrioma visible on ultrasound
    3.twenty years of gut pain around ovulation and AF.

    My first FS asked me if I got any pains when making a bowel movement around the time of my period. I was like "yeah actually I do!" but that was about the only symptom and it wasn't severe but noticeable. I've never really had painful periods or any pain much at all so it was a surprise when they found a moderate amount. I'm pretty convinced it was a big part of my problem as I've had implantations after that but not before. Also, my FS said removing the endo could lift the egg quality but they didn't quite understand why.

    Canuck 28 - sounding really positive, I have my fingers crossed for you

    Thanks for the feedback ladies, I think I learn more off here than my FS. So from what I gather if I go down the ivf route endo makes no difference to my treatment, maybe just my chances.
    A lap might be on the cards in the future if ivf isn't working out.

    These are amazing numbers!! Do you know what the clinic you are with now did differently to achieve them? Congrats- you must be chuffed.
