Hello,
I am 36 yrs old. I have a lot against me but giving it all I've got. I've had stage iv endometriosis cleaned up twice, a fibroid removed from inside my uterus, been on a high dose of progesterone due to complex atypical hyperplasia with atypia, both tubes removed due to the endometriosis.

AMH was 9 when tested in June 2016. FSH was high in July 2017.

I started stimulation at the end of July and my period started 6 days later. I had blood work and ultrasounds done on stim days 5, 8 and 11. My estrogen went up on stim day 8 but no follicles were seen. On stim day 11 there were still no follicles seen and my estrogen dropped.

My doctor is very confused about what is going on my body. He states that he has never dealt with someone with so many things happening to them. I have to go back this Friday for blood work and ultrasound again.

I am wondering if the endometriosis is interfering with hormones, follicles, cysts..... Would I benefit from having surgery again to clean it up before trying again?

What are your thoughts?

Thanks
Michelle

Sorry, I don't have any insight to your issue.  Just wanted to wish you the best with your journey.  If you feel you're not getting anywhere with your current doctor, it never hurts to get a second opinion from another doctor/clinic.

I would advise against further surgery on the ovaries. Removing endometriosis from the ovaries can also reduce the amount of healthy ovarian tissue and number of eggs. Best to try to figure out how to get a good ovarian response, get some nice embryos and then you can consider endometriosis surgery if you feel it is necessary.
