    yeah I had been TTC for around 4 years with no joy - went to my FS who Dx a small cyst so decided on a lap rather than anything else in order to deal with the cyst.

    Found pretty severe endo (I had no symptoms at all).

    Cleared that - and 3 months later I fell pregnant naturally.


    (that was over 10 yrs ago now. )

    Wow.. This no symptoms business is really not ideal.. If I had symptoms, I would have done a lap ages ago! Argh..

    How old were you at the time? I'm heading into my 40s, so wondering if that might be a bit late for the falling pregnant naturally within 3 months of a lap... I am hoping they find endo, because I have a reason..

    I was 33 at the time.

    I have to say - my FS was quite astounded that I fell pregnant naturally. I did try again to have another baby afterwards (had another lap etc) but it didnt happen so its not a given ...

    back. Thanks for sharing. Sorry you weren't able to fall pregnant afterwards.. This fertility business is not guaranteed at all, is it? So frustrating.. Hoping a miracle comes my way.

    That's great to hear! (not the part about Stage 3 endo, but that they excised it all). Your chances and pregnancy now will be massively increased. Are you going to try naturally for a bit or go straight to IVF? Either way all the best! 😘

    Thanks so much @GreenFlower :hug: I was really happy they found endo too lol. I just wanted a reason for the failed IVF cycles..
    I'm 40 hun, so not sure how successful I'll be, but my levels don't seem to indicate a problem. I would like to go straight into IVF, but my new FS said no. He'd like me to try naturally for 4 months. He seems to think I've a better chance at natural conception than I do with IVF because I've had 7 failed IVF cycles... I worry about waiting 4 months.. I'm getting older and I really don't have the luxury of time

    Hi ladies I thought I would share some info I found that might be of interest.
    Bee Propolis

    Bee Propolis is a resinous mixture of tree sap, tree buds, tree leaves and other botanical sources that the bees make to seal small openings in their hives. Larger openings are sealed with beeswax. Once again the chemical constituents of bee propolis varies by region because different plants live in different climates.

    Studies on “typical” northern temperate propolis showed it to contain 50% vegetable balsams, 30% waxes, 10% essential oils, and 5% pollen. This northern region propolis is mainly derived from conifers and poplars.

    A study published in Fertility and Sterility (2003;80:S32) showed that 60% of women with endometriosis related infertility who took 500mg of bee propolis twice a day for 9 months became pregnant as opposed to 20% in the placebo group. Endometriosis pain, scar tissue and adhesion formation is thought to be triggered by inflammation response. Bee propolis has been shown to be extremely anti-inflammatory which may reduce endometriosis.

    I will add that I take bee propolis for period pain and it has made a significant difference for me.

    I didn't know I had endo until after my first pregnancy. Things were fine for me, AF came on time, short length and no pain. I had a medically necessary termination with my first pregnancy but afterwards I started having severe pains, legs collapse from under me and ovulation time would be excruciating. I had a lap/hyst about a year later and was found to have severe endo. They couldn't remove all the endo due to where it was but I was able to go onto a 6 month course of zoladex implants. My gyno, at the time, recommended to fall pregnant within the next year if I wanted to ever have babies. 5 years later when I was ready, I was able to fall pregnant naturally.
