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!

Where did you come from...

Aunt flo? I wasn't really expecting you. Although, after further reflection I do think the RE said you could come, but, would be light (since I am on Aygestin and it thins out my endometrium). So far, so good.

That came over the weekend. Fabulous, right? And, since this is a TMI blog (if you didn't know that, I think you are in the wrong place!); should my YI be gone after the 3 day treatment the clinic suggested?!? Because, I'm still a little uncomfortable. I figured I'd see what it did overnight and go from there. I'm sure the clinic is expecting a message on their machine in the morning anyway.

I am scheduled for my "mock transfer" on Tuesday (or Weds-they wrote "Weds, April 14th"-which is actually Tues, so, I need some clarification on that). What should I expect? And, can they do it while I'm on my period? Well, I guess it's only really spotting at most. Just wondering.

Another ponder I had. What about sex during IVF? That may be a stupid question. I probably won't even be feeling it? My poor husband...first surgery, then complications, then my evil female burden. Again, TMI blog people. How else can I get my answers? Oh, I guess I could ask the RE...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. We definitely did-we got out of town and visited with family and friends. It was so GREAT to get away. Now, back to the grindstone...

Okay, my dr said that we would not want to risk naturally conceiving and IUI conceiving because it would result in a miscarriage. Now, I don't really know what he meant by that, so, well, I guess I didn't help you at all?? Just call you dr and ask, because that's what I'm gonna have to do I guess!

i got my period shortly after my last laparoscopy as well. i think after finishig the three day yi treatment you should be feeling pretty much back to normal. there is a one pill oral yi treatement, it's called diflucan, maybe they can give you that.

HAHA! - this is why I just stick to your main blog and get updates from you personally on your lady biz! I don't want to know anything about 'the sex' with you and The Mister!
Love you! Good Luck!

Lol-Jennie. This is real! I won't be offended if you just call. Haha. Although, you know I'm more blunt in person! ;). You are screwed either way!

Thanks for the kind words! Getting it out in blogging seems to be more effective than holding it in!
