34, diagnosed w/Adenomyosis & really want a baby!

I am 34 (soon to be 35) and I was diagnosed with Adenomyosis about a year ago. My periods are crazy heavy and really long - like 30 days long! Most times I have to kick start my hormones with medication to stop my period (which seems really backward I know!).

Anyhow. I have 2 wonderful teenagers from a previous relationship and my boyfriend of 13 years has raised them. We've recently (about 6 months before diagnosis) decided we want to add another member to our wonderful family - what I'm wondering is how do I know when I'm ovulating (if I'm ovulating at all) if my periods are so long? I met with a specialist who told me that, based on multiple blood tests, sometimes I'm ovulating and sometimes I'm not. So... how do I know? Is there something I can do to raise my chances? I know fertility meds would be a start but my insurance won't cover trying to get pregnant so...I don't know what to do.

I am diagnosed with adneomyosis as well. I am on my cycle now after a failed frozen embryo transfer. Since your insurance won't cover infertility try seeing a fertility acupuncturist who will help you clean out your kidneys, liver & all the old clotted blood from the adneomyosis by using Chinese herbal concentrated tea combined with acupuncture. This should increase ovulation and relieve your adneomyosis symptoms.

Don't give up hope, maybe find an endocrinologist that can treat your adneomyosis and infertility...maybe with a payment plan. Keep us posted.
