I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Eeeep...here I go!

I start the Loestrin tomorrow (they said on Day3 of my next cycle). I am not too thrilled about being on BCP; I had hoped to never be on it again! Keep your fingers crossed this way please!!! No migraines and no ill effects...

Hmmmm...does it matter what TIME I take it?

This period hasn't been too bad. Leading up to it I was having random stabbing pains (a few of which forced me to hug some clothes racks at Target one day). But, overall, I've had worse for sure. I've just been taking normal Ibuprofen!!! So, if it weren't for this ever-growing mass on my right ovary, I probably wouldn't be looking at another surgery anytime soon. But, it's likely for the best in regards to my fertility. We can get a for sure answer on the tubes question, and, my Dr. can really see first hand on what is going on in there. And, again, I really hope it'll help with the constant drag of nausea that plagues me!!!

What are you having? An HSG for your tubes?

I wish you the best. If you have endo on your bowels and they remove it, the nausea should clear up after surgery.

I'm going to try and post my SMILE post today...thanks for the tag.

Yaya-
Not an HSG persay...they can use something else during surgery, not the contrast stuff. I'm allergic to contrast! But, they'll flush then with something while she's in there during my laparoscopy!

Thanks everyone!!!
