If my endometriosis was unable to be removed during lap., is there any chance of successful pregnancy? Ttc 2 years, one recent failed IUI with clomid (clomiphene).
Can I still conceive while spotting brown blood on clomid (clomiphene). I definitely ovulate and had a D&C for polyps, cysts & endometriosis.
A recent HSG test revealed that 1 tube was blocked. I have endometriosis. Would Clomid (clomiphene) be helpful to achieve pregnancy. I'm 28 with no kids & 2ectopic?
Time for consult: With ectopic or two and blocked tube or tubes, you need to see a fertility specialist to define your options. You may need to bypass bad tubes and do IVF to achieve pregnancy.

Yes, possible.: If you're having sexual intercourse this cycle with a man who has normal fertility, it's possible. But don't get discouraged if it doesn't happen right away. It often takes a few cycles. Still, many young women with the same issues you're facing do become mothers. I wish you the best! ...Read more

Can be confusing:
Endo pain is typically focused on the menstrual cycle. IBS pain is often related to bowel function, such as pain followed by diarrhea. IBS often also is associated with sharp crampy pain and may be in the upper abdomen.

Dr wants me to do macrosomnia u/s what is that test for? I started at 160lbs and I'm 187lbs at 33+3 weeks. Got preg on endometriosis due 7/29 or 8/3
Large baby: That type of ultrasound is looking to see how large the baby is. A baby greater than 4000g or 8 pounds, 13 oz, is at greater risk for problems. These include sugar issues for the baby, and more dangerous and difficult deliveries. Due to your weight gain, the doctor is concerned that the baby may be macrosomic. ...Read more
Yes.: Not all patients with endometriosis have a family history, but many do. If you are having pelvic pain, severe pain with your periods or pain on penetration with intercourse, you should see your gynecologist. While you can not see endometriosis on an ultrasound, you can see other sources of pelvic pain. Robotic laparoscopic surgery is the best way to see endometriosis. ...Read more
Endometriosis: Surgery is the gold standard, and reduces the amount/extent of disease. The most effective medical treatment is the drug lupron (r). It is costly with some side effects, but is safe and often as good for pain as surgery. The injectible contraceptive depo-provera gives mixed results. A much older drug, danazol, is mostly no longer used. ...Read more

Menstrual pain a lot: If having a lot of menstrual pain, see the ob-gyn. Endometriosis is a serious problem in which little pieces of tissue (similar to the lining of the uterus that bleeds and sheds each month) are trapped inside one's pelvis and abdomen. With each menstrual period the trapped tissue sheds and bleeds on the inside of the abdomen (the blood has no way to leave the body), causing much pain and cramping. ...Read more
