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!

These are some serious hormones raging

I just cried for an hour about these effing incisions (from my March 2009 lap). I am not sure who to call tomorrow. Seems like both the RE and derm are clueless about what's going on. OBVIOUSLY the creams aren't working Mr. Derm, but, these oral meds (for after ER) did. What does that mean?!?! And what the f*** are we going to do about it (esp if I am preggers-no oral meds for me)?!?! I was finally feeling/looking better, and, now not so much. They are no where near what they were before-just keep opening up and causing a mess. And, that is ever so frustrating.

Seriously, whoa hormones, whoa.

The out of control hormones, aaah! They are only going to get worse when you get your positive! (It's going to work!)

I am unsure? The procedure must be performed differently here?... From what I understand from your posts they must do the retrieval through abdominal incisions?

Hope you feel better soon, try not to stress yourself out about it. ;)

I just edited the post-I see how that was confusing :) No, I had a lap to clean out an endometrioma in March. It's my incisions from THAT surgery! Crazy!!!

Ugh, you poor thing. What an unbelievably terrible situation. I hope you can find help soon to resolve this once and for all - a wound specialist sounds like a great idea.

You know, being on the PIO hasn't been bad in terms of moodiness. (The butt lumpiness is another matter!!) I've been on PIO for about 8 weeks now and seriously, the Lupron and stims were worse in terms of raging hormones.

It will take a little while for you to adjust - and your body is still getting rid of all the stims and the trigger shot.

Hang in there.

maybe you can hang out in a padded room with me since i feel like i'm losing my mind too!
