IUI and endo question
Does anyone have a similar story/ success story/ advice?
I have PCOS but ovulate regularly.  After 3-4 years of trying on our own and numerous tests, we had our first IUI last month.  It failed, and I'm currently on the Gonal-F injections getting ready for IUI #2.  I had lap surgery about 1.5 years ago where they removed a small polyp and some endometriosis follicles (few small ones around the ovaries and a tiny follicle by pelvic area).  Now I'm wondering if endo can be preventing us from getting prego.  My Dr. said that some small endo follicles may have regrown but via vaginal ultrasound everything and she said that there's no reason to do a diagnostic surgery because women with endo do get pregnant.  I want to move onto IVF but since I have PCOS, she's afraid to overstimulate the ovaries and has suggested to continue on with IUI - at least 2 more tries.  Has anyone with mild endo gotten prego with IUI? Thank you and I'm looking forward to hearing your stories!

Hi Hopeful,

I'm currently pregnant with severe endometriosis. Second pregnancy, first baby...
We tried 2 IUI's and didn't  get pregnant from either. I don't have PCOS though, so I'm not honestly sure how that complicates the IUI situation. I would give yourself some time between IUIs and then again some moe time before the IVF, simply because your body still continues to work from the treatments, even after they have officially 'finished'.

I took Clomid for a long time and never got pregnant during the treatment. But BOTH my pregnancies happened when I was taking a break frrom fertility treatments, which is why I recommend that. Give yourselves a break now and then and sometimes, just the being relaxed and not worrying about it for a month or two does the trick. It's amazing how much stress can complicate things!

Good luck!!
