Is there a way to test fertility if I have endometriosis?

Is there a way to test fertility if I have endometriosis?

YES!: With endometriosis, we worry about pelvic adhesions (scarring) and surrounding inflammation. An ultrasound and a hysterosalpingogram can be helpful to see if the tubes are blocked or open and make sure there aren't any ovarian cysts. If there is something abnormal, a laparoscopy can fix these problems! ...Read more

What is the chance that having PID will cause infertility? Dose it alway cause infertility, or is there still a chance you will conceive?

What is the chance that having PID will cause infertility? Dose it alway cause infertility, or is there still a chance you will conceive?

Moderate to High: A significant number of women will have infertility after 1 episode of pid. After more than 1 episode of pid, the chances are very high. Pid can damage and even block fallopian tubes. So it is worthwhile to get an xray of the tubes, called a hysterosalpingogram, to know where you stand. However, many women still conceive naturally and many will need fertility treatment with ivf. ...Read more

Is there a way for me to track my ovulation if I have a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD?

Is there a way for me to track my ovulation if I have a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD?

May not be: Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD's have several mechanisms of action. Primarily it works by creating a hostile environment to sperm at the level of the cervical mucous. The Progesterone also inhibits peristalsis of the fallopian tubes and thins out the endometrial lining. For some women the Progesterone inhibits ovulation and others it does not. Tracking ovulation is not reliable or necessary when using Mirena (levonorgestrel). ...Read more

I have severe endometriosis, one ovary removed, want to get pregnant. Is there a way to test my fertility before hubby reverses vasectomy?Chances low?

I have severe endometriosis, one ovary removed, want to get pregnant. Is there a way to test my fertility before hubby reverses vasectomy?Chances low?

Bad Odds: Oh wow! my first question is how long has your husband had a vasectomy? If longer than 5 years, significant antibodies are produced immobilizing the sperm and making him effectively infertile. Only might icsi/ivf help in which case he would not need a reversal, they would just insert a needle and extract a specimen. Also very expensive and low yield. Endometriosis prevents fertilization also. ...Read more
