Hi all, has anyone had experience with doctors unable to access one or both ovaries in order to retrieve eggs for IVF?
I am currently with The Fertility Centre Springwood. Had my second scan this morning. Have been on FSH for the last week. Preparing for egg retrieval on Tues.
My right ovary has a 2cm endometrioma and one follicle hiding behind it. My left ovary is hidden behind the uterus and has been for years as a result of severe endometriosis. Left ovary has 2 good sized follicles though.
Not sure until we are in theatre whether or not they will be able to access any of the follicles. If they try to access the left ovary they may have to go through the uterus. I'm told this can be painful.
wondering if anyone has had a similar experience?
