    We've been trying for over a year and a half..finally had an ultrasound that showed a cyst on my left ovary. Had a laparoscopy just yesterday and found that I have endometriosis. Not sure what stage, but fortunately my doc was able to drain the cyst and did not have to remove my ovary.

    I know others have been through this and I wonder about your own experience with conceiving and if there were any problems with getting pregnant, the pregnancy itself, and delivery.

    sorry to hear your troubles. i am glad that you founf out what was wrong because now you have opened up your options.

    you can read my bio for most of my journey although mine did take 6 years it was well worth it.
    i did have 2 miscarriages but don;'t be discouraged by that because i now have the best little chunky 11 mo. old. he is perfect. my concption with him was really crazy also since i was in the middle of endo treatment (lupron) and going in for my 3rd lap when i found out i was 18 weeks pg. so needles to say many doctors appt's with specialists and what not to have a a pretty uneventful pregnancy. little hiccups but nothing catastrophic. and labor was a breeze(with the epidural) lol all 12 hours of it ha ha.
    and even with all the iui's and medication and hormones and testing all 3 of my pg's were natural conception. but feel free to email me seperately or post any questions you have and i would be happy to help. just let me jknow what yall have already tried or are willing to try.
