    @RM05MB you're welcome! If my experience helps just one get to the bottom of their issues then that's a good thing.
    I understand re being rural (having grown up on a farm 4+hrs from a capital city). It doesn't make it easy, but it's so worth doing, even if you have to re-arrange your life a little bit to get to the city. Get onto it soon if your symptoms have been getting worse. The good ones often have 2-3 month waiting lists for initial consultations. I've found that once I had my initial consult, I could be fitted in for (private) surgery within weeks. If you're closest to Sydney, Brisbane or Adelaide I've come across some great ones worth considering (PM me & I can give you details). Wishing you all the best! xx

    Thanks for sharing this Is something I've started looking into as I'm going in for a lap to remove suspected severe endo in 2 weeks. I've always been regular 28-29 day cycle, cramping before period but bare able, no issues falling pregnant with our first (2 months trying) but it's month 11 ttc 2 with no luck. Went through the battery of tests and all perfect only spotted endo because my doctor wanted to confirm ovulation through US not just hormonally (which they did) and spotted an endometrioma or "chocolate spot" so looked into it more and believe the endo has been hindering implantation. I'm desperately hoping we fall pregnant naturally after the lap and would be interested to hear similar stories.. Thanks!

    Default grade 4 endometriosis and infertility

    thanks for sharing your experiences. I had a very similar experience.
    I initially saw Dr Yazdani who works with Dr Wyn Williams. I was trying for 12 months with no success. I had painful periods all my life... I was referred to him by my GP and was told eve health are the best. But when I saw him, he didn't make me feel at ease, took 2 hours to see me and he quoted me a gap of 1500... He didn't even want to check my husband. He was convinced I have severe endometriosis. So I spoke to my husband's mum who is a nurse in Adelaide and she works for a gynae specialist. He recommended a new specialist in sunnybank who is trained to do severe endometriosis. His name is Dr Joseph Jabbour. My AMH was 10, but I was ovulating normally. He took his time to check my husband semen, do some more blood tests but he also agreed it is severe endometriosis. I ended up doing the surgery a few weeks later and he charged me 500 for the gap. I had grade 4 endo- and he removed it all. He works with another specialist who is experienced with endometriosis and they assist each other. I was home the next day but my tummy was full of fluid to stop adhesions. MY tubes were normal and open.
    He gave me some clomiphene afterwards and we were about to try IUI but I fell pregnant. This was last year and I had my baby with them. They are also obstetricians. Their midwife was so patient with me and never made me feel like any question was stupid. Now we are hoping to have our second in a few months hopefully I will definitely return!

    Hi I have stage 4 endometriosis too. My last lap was in November 2015 and that still hasn't helped my pain. My ob said that my endometriosis has destroyed my nerve endings so I'm in pain all the time but I have just learnt to live with it. I have pain with i have bowel movments and its at its peak during ovulation and during my periods, i take endone for the pain. We want to ttc for #2 next month but if the pain is extremely bad i will have another lap.

    Hi - thank you for this post! I already know I have endo (diagnosed by lap 7yrs ago, and removed all that was there at the time).

    I've just seen a fertility ob/gyn as I'm not getting pregnant and his first response was that I'd need to have another lap done, as the endo makes the pelvis a hostile environment.

    I came on here to check forums and get other members advice .. I'm trying to decide if we just go straight into lap or try clomid/progesterone first (i don't ovulate till around CD30 and my luteal phase is too short) - I see a lot of people managed to fall pregnant pretty quickly, but I'm concerned that his first response is to go the surgery route? He said my hormone levels tested fine, but I'm not even sure what he tested? Just wanted to see what other members thought? (ps i know you can't offer medical advice, just looking for opinion).

    Thank you!

    I was only diagnosed with endo last year after ttc for about 3 years after naturally conceiving my daughter. We weren't trying with her but also wasn't on contraception for about 5 years so if we had of been trying it would have been concerning. After seeing a public specialist I referred myself to an ivf clinic and had a lap within 2 months and found severe endo. After trying naturally for 8 months and nothing happening, I saw a naturopath and used pre-seed. Something worked finally and we are now 7 weeks. Definitely keep going until u get the answers you need.

    This is from first hand exp. We where seeing a fs for 3 yrs and had spent enough money to buy a nice new 4wd. Last year we changed fs as ours left and went elsewhere. Our new fs ss D you had endo I was like what it was clear as bell in scans I had done the results where with held.

    New FS said advice is to have a Lapo. 2 wks later I did. 5 months later boom pregnant naturally. I had stage 3 endo. A friend was exactly the same but her gyno said no you have pcos no she didn't she changed to FS by flute, had a Lapo stage 3 endo boom pregnant naturally 3 months later.

    Go the Lapo first it is totally worth it if your not pregnant within 3-6 months naturally then consider IVF
