    I know you've decided to go ahead but I'll tell you my experience anyway! In March 2012 I had a miscarriage at 9.5 weeks pregnant. In May 2013 I was in Malaysia on business when I fell sick with appendicitis. While I was in the operating room, they found undiagnosed endometriosis that was so bad that my ovary was stuck to my rectum! They removed the endometriosis and I returned home. I fell pregnant on my first cycle back in Perth.

    Hi @rmc
    Sorry you are going through a similar experience.
    After deciding to go ahead with the lap I found out that the second round of clomid I was on had been successful! I am pregnant and due in a week and half with our little bubba 😊
    So I'm probably not much help for you because I still don't know why we had trouble conceiving. For the record I would have had the lap the following month if I hadn't fallen pregnant. All the very best to you!

    I too would definitely have the surgery. At least you can then tick it off your list of possible reasons for infertility if there was no Endo present.
    I'm glad i had both my laparoscopies. I never felt pain but endo was extensive and a huge reason for my infertility. Good luck and remember - you are definitely not alone!

    Yep I had a laporoscopy & I never ever thought I had endo. I had so many scans previously done & thought my pcos was behind not being able to conceive as I never really had the signs of endo. We only did the procedure before going onto IVF because I didn't want to outlay money for IVF & then find out it wouldn't have worked anyway.

    The did the lap & I had really bad endo removed, cysts (that never showed up on scans) as well as my ovary being stuck to side. I was told wíthout the lap I never would have conceived & IVF certainly wouldn't have worked for us.

    Anyone else have an update?
    I have just had my second lap, very extensive and cut out a lot of endo, recovering at home.
    Looking for more conception after lap success stories even though my age is a huge factor too. Thanks ladies!

    Sorry I have no conception story for you. I too am waiting for a BFP after my lap and extensive endo removal. Since the lap I had one full cycle which failed. And currently I am starting on a FET cycle. Will update if there is any positive news this time.

    Default Booked in next month...

    Hi,
    We have unexplained fertility and been ttc for a few years now. Ive had 2 rounds of ivf where our embryos just havent stuck.
    There is no guarantee with a lap BUT I just couldnt put myself and dh through another round without ruling out endometriosis and whether its 'me' or my uterus playing up and sacrificing us falling pregnant.
    I have had pain during sex on and off, painful right side, I have a fibroid also. Diahhrea when I get af.
    Ive been struggling with ibs my whole life but have thought its just that. Bad back pain that a chiro, massage or physio just cant cure...
    Im so scared now.. although I was so sure that seeing a gyno (not a fs) would give me some answers and reassurance and I feel like I owe it to try the lap operation.

    My hubby is not really happy about the lap because its not a definite diagnosis to go though with it.

    What do you think ?

    Hi Fruitypie, definitely see a gynaecologist who takes an interest in endometriosis and have the lap done. I just got my operation report from the lap. It said 'severe' endometriosis was cut out from basically everywhere. Which means to me I have done 5 rounds of ivf that were always doomed for failure. I'm having a difficult recovery because the op was so extensive but I hope in the end to live pain free. Fertility is probably not going to benefit because of my age although Dr has told me to try naturally for a couple of months and it 'may' happen.
    This was my second lap, first time before my ivf I chose the wrong surgeon and she did not get it all out! So do your research and make sure the surgeon is good at cutting out endo!
