Just over 6 months actively but haven't been on BC for 7 years and of those 7 years we havdnt used protection since last year August afte my laparscopy to remove Endo. I have longer cycles 33/34 days.
I am in care of FS anyway and gp did run all blood tests after 6 months as thus is what my FS wanted. My FS is also one of the leading surgeons for Endo and I became a patient of his on fertilitt unrelated issues. All tests have been done and I am fine and dh was tested too. FS wanted me to do 3 more cycles using OPKs etc and now I am scheduled for another ultrasound after o to see if the uterine lining is the issue. I think IUI then ivf or straight to ivf whichever I prefer. My mum had hostile CM it took her years to conceive as the sperm was killed before meeting the egg. I am worried this might be an issue for me.
Miss Kitty - I too had endo. I had two laps to remove it in 2011 and 2012. After lap I saw a fertility specialist and he put me on 100mg clomid. First cycle on clomid I fell pregnant with dd. Prior to this I had been charting and didn't appear to be ovulating. I even tried acupuncture. I had pretty much given up and thought we'd be going down ivf path as fs was only going to let me try for 4 cycles hence a high dose of clomid initially. Since having dd my symptoms of endo have disappeared.
Has your fs confirmed you are ovulating through blood tests? Are you temping?
It sucks when everyone around you is falling pregnant and it's all you want but it isn't happening. I've been there, my sister accidentally fell with #5, my bestie fell accidentally with #3 and my sis-in-law fell after 6mths trying with #1 during the 12mths we were trying.

First Response test here. It's faint but it's there!
I'll do another with FMU tomorrow. I bought some other cheapies too, I'm gonna keep testing every few days. I don't think I feel as convinced as when I tested with DD (which was 4 days after AF was due) the line was instantly there and dark. My hcg levels are obviously still low. Maybe I ovulated late?
What do you guys think?
I was actually wondering if the 2nd line was going to appear at all! It took a minute!
