With scarred tissues endometriosis and one ovary what are the chances of t.T.C?

Severe Endo & Fert: You seem to be describing severe endometriosis. Further, you have only 1 ovary and only 50% of your eggs. Your age is important and fertility goes down with age. We have tests to check your fertility potential and you need other tests. See a fertility specialist for an assessment and options. Whatever we do now will work better than treatment in the future - don't delay. ...Read more

Back pain: Scar tissue, endometriosis and othe problems related to the uterus and ovaries can cause pelvic or back pain. After hysterectomy you should have a gun checkup to assess the health of ovaries, bladder and pelvic floor. Endometriosis can cause pain after hysterectomy, in some cases, even after removal of ovaries. ...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?

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

I have a 26 day cycle. My period was one day late. I have been feeling nausea.  I also have a endometriosis cyst on my ovary. Any chance i can b preg?

Get a test!: Pregnancy tests, even over-the-counter ones, are very accurate. Generally, if you conceived more than 14 days ago, the pregnancy test will be positive. There is a chance that you conceived too recently for the test to pick up the low levels of hormone in your system. If you had intercourse less than two weeks ago, then you will need to repeat the test when it has been at least two weeks. ...Read more

I'm 33yrs  old and have endometriosis, and one ovary left after prior surgery...Whats my best recourse to concieve?

In reference to a laparoscopic hysterectomy for endometriosis issues, would it be better to keep one ovary, if possible?

In reference to a laparoscopic hysterectomy for endometriosis issues, would it be better to keep one ovary, if possible?

Depends on age: Leaving one ovary means you will likely still have pain in 6-12 months post op, though you won't have periods and doing the hyst and one side debulks the endometriosis. Over age 40 I suggest both sides come out. Over 35 I tend to make all of mine aware of the recurrence of pain. Under 35 there is some benefit to keeping an ovary for prevention though 50% fail in 2 years and you get menopause. ...Read more

I have a history of endometriosis both ovaries...My Hcg on 18th was 44.4...on 20th my Hcg dropped to 14.0..do i still have chance...

Not good: If the HCG is dropping, you are losing the pregnancy. There is always the possiblility of a lab error, so it can be rechecked. It is very low, and needs to be followed down to zero to make sure it is not an ectopic. ...Read more

I have an endometriosis cyst on both or sometimes only on one side of my ovaries, do I need to go for a check up for my ca-125 every single year?

Endometriosis: Endometriosis can affect your fertility. Some surgical options are available to remove the endometriosis and assess your uterus and fallopian tubes further.

Hi how many months after open surgerical cyst removal we can have sex for getting pregnant? ( i had one endometriosis (8.7.7 cm) in r ovary )

3 months: It's usually safe to have sex in 4 to 6 weeks but it really takes good 3 months for healing to be good on the inside. So i would recommend waiting 3 months to be safe. It's always a great idea to talk to your surgeon as what they saw intraoperatively may change the answer. ...Read more

18 yr,not sexual active,I have had 5 cyst on my ovaries in 2 month,4 has rupture one still there 2cm,birth con arm implant,have endometriosis any idea?

Obgyn evaluation: Schedule a visit with your obgyn to go through your current situation and see what options would be best to manage your situation. Nexplanon is a good birth control choice and does not contribute to endometriosis. Cysts are quite common in young women. Management depends on the size, symptoms and types of cysts. ...Read more

27 y.o with hypoechoic cystic lesions on both ovaries. One 8.4cm another 4cm. CA-125 was 190 then 110 on a second test. GYN wants to do lap surgery. Gyn/Onc wants to do laparotomy. Both suspect endometiomas and endometriosis. Which should I choose?

Depends: I am not a surgeon maybe I can help. The key issues are the surgeons level of confidence. These being equal, laparoscopic surgery is better due to less trauma to the abdomen. You can check to see if the surgeons post their statistics online for their complication rates. I found these for surgery that I needed. lastly, 8.4 cm is big. it may be hard to do through a scope. ...Read more

Endo and Ovulation: Endometriosis does not stop ovulation. Most of your fertility is because of the scar tissue. Removing an ovary also means that you lost 50% of the eggs. That means your fertility potential is lower and probably earlier menopause. Get amh & FSH levels and see an ivf specialist soon to understand your options better. Delay could mean lower ivf success. Good luck. ...Read more

Cutaneous endometriosis and scar tissue anterior to the abdominal fascia can be surgically excised with direct repair of the abdominal wall.
