    [QUOTE=gorgeousgeorge;8559651]@pingc383 hey again :-) not trying to be know it all but everything ive read and been told is that the only way to tell for sure if you have endo is to cut you open and physically see it. And that the severity does not match up to symptoms. So you can have tiny bit of endo and lots of pain or tons of endo and no pain. And many peopke with endo dont have trouble conceiving. Go figure??? Every scientific article ive read about endo concluded with something like " this suggests that more research needs to be done to understand endo". Endo is a strange thing that no one yet understands, exactly how it affects fertility. Like, they dont know how it destroys your eggs or the mechanisms of how and why it does what it does. Im honestly just glad that my endo isnt debilitating/doesnt affect my daily life.
    Lol, i dont think im that tough. Mostly i just felt a bit stupid when fs said pain like that isnt normal.

    Default IVF over 40#38

    Thanks @gorgeousgeorge for your insightful post & for your support & for sharing how it is with you - so much appreciated.

    I agree in that if I had the funds I have no issues in paying for everything myself - I've always been very independent & fairly successful financially so I'm with you there :-)

    Our issues started when I lost four pregnancies in 18 months & the grief nearly killed me. I put other people in charge of my business & they betrayed me big time, my business failed, I ended up in debt & had to rely on DH to pay the household bills. Then I did several stim cycles & got very very sick so couldn't really work, but I still managed to fund everything myself - with alternative practitioners, doctors, scans, meds, supplements etc I am $20K out of pocket & DH hasn't put in one cent.

    Even though the last two years I haven't contributed to the household finances much, I do 100% of housework, groceries, cooking, bill paying, financials for our property company that has four properties in it, handle most of DSSs stuff - school runs etc - we have him almost shared care - & still try & run my business as well. So I feel like I do contribute a lot, & that it would be nice if DH wanted to put in for a DE cycle.

    But it's not going to happen so I have to find a way myself & thank goodness that super can be released for these purposes!!! That will help a lot & that way the pressure will be off DH.

    Edit: sorry if I sound like shrew who just expects DH to hand out money! He had his own issues with grief around the losses, so hasn't been able to support me emotionally at all through this whole time. So I feel like I've been on my own the whole way through, so it's not just financial. I think for him to put some $ up would be one way of showing his support if you know what I mean? But anyway, my plan is in place

    @Summer yes, i can totally understand all what youve said above. Dh and i live in separate houses directly across the road from each other so no sharing or sorting out domestic duties at all and we both do the same job on same yearly salary to the cent, literally. So im amazed at how easy this makes things for our relationship. We basically have no reason to fight about anything and we cant play the 'i work harder or i earn more money' game. But i hear you on what youve said above, coz my first marriage involved all that stuff too. And yes, i understand what you mean about his grief too. It makes it so hard to support each other coz you can usually take it in turns. Its hard when the same terrible thing happens to both of you. You're in my thoughts and its great that you are free to make your own plans and he seens to support that. xox

    @gorgeousgeorge what a great set up! I really miss my financial independence, it's been pretty difficult to deal with actually. I'm trying to decide now whether I keep working on my business or go back to being employed for a while. Finding the lump sum for DE was going to be the difficult bit, but if I can do the super thing, the desperation will reduce & then I can make some decisions about work without that hanging over my head as the main driving factor

    haha YES do it I popped in to "look" at the COS store on my way to pick up my EE the other day...$300 later

    As for the scan at day 2, no Ive never been diagnosed with lining issues. I did have very scant AF for a while though so I had the top specialist in Ashermans syndrome do investigative surgery to check if I had it, but no. That was Jan 2015 and its improved since then (AF flow that is). I wonder if it was all the IVF drugs as I had cycled quite a lot and it was over a couple of years of IVF. Who knows!! But also RPA have never done extra lining scans so I had wondered if mine seemed ok and I asked the FS I went to at IVFA last year and she said mine looked fine. I know it doesnt get as high as others Ive heard, averages more around the 6-7 figure but it seems as though nobody has an issue with it and since I have been pregnant before I felt it probably isnt my problem. But who the F knows

    My FS told me the research was inconclusive as to whether endo caused infertility. I have heard of people who had no treatment and got pregnant but others who didn't get pregnant until after treatment. I have grade 4 endo and also adeno so it was decided to treat it. I did get pregnant after surgery and being on the pill for 3 months so maybe it helped. I have not had any immune treatment except what I was able to get from my GP - prednisone 12.5mg. My FS didn't believe in immune issues.

    What I make of my experience and reading is that it's better to assume that endo might cause fertility problems and treat it. If you get to the end of the fertility road with empty arms then at least you can say that you did eveything you could.
    @Summer. I love your plan. You go girl!
