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

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
