IVF success after laproscopy?


Hey ladies,

I’m new to this group and endometriosis in general. My back story is we’ve been TTC for almost 4 years now. We were diagnosed with male factor and everything looked good on my end. We did 4 failed IUIs one cancelled <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IUI</a> cycle, 1 egg retrieval (which I got terrible OHSS from), we got 4 embryos out of the 15 mature eggs they collected, and two failed FET (frozen embryo transfers).

After our second failed transfer we took some time off. I was so mentally done with it. I came to terms we may never have children. Even though we have 2 embryos left. We were out of money to try again, we had paid tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket for fertility treatments.

A few months ago we got new insurance. <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">IVF</a> is now covered. I felt like we should try our last two embryos. It had been 8 months since my last transfer so I went into a consultation with my RE to come up with a plan for transferring the last two. My RE said he wanted to do a laproscopy to diagnose endometriosis. He thought I may have asymptomatic endometriosis “silent endo”. He said it’s been found that endometriosis can cause a failure to implant for embryos. And since we had the two failed transfers he thinks that’s probably the case.

Last Friday I had my laproscopy. He found endometriosis I was so out of it after the surgery I forget what the dr told me. My husband who is extremely squeamish was showed the photos but doesn’t remember everything the dr said as he was grossed out by the photos said they found it inside my uterus, on the outside of my uterus, and on the back of one of my ovaries, he said it may have been other places too he can’t remember what the dr said. I go for my follow up on 1/30 and will know more then.

At this point I’m super down trodden about the whole thing. I can’t believe after all this time they discovered something else. I’m so worried when we transfer our next embryo it won’t work. We only have 2 more tries here. There’s no way I’m going through another egg retrieval. Did anyone ever have any luck with a transfer after a lap? We still have male factor so getting pregnant naturally isn’t likely to happen.
