hi Andrea - I have mild to moderate endo. Pain is very bad for three days each month. the only thing that helps me is accupuncture. Someone who had endo recommended it to me - it really helps. Only other thing really is any kind of heat. Hot bath, hot water bottle......

Hope you get the help you need

Yeah - that's what they think. One fresh and one frozen IVF cycle so far. Another one planned in about 6 months. I'm due to get laser treatment in April first - so fingers crossed that might help things - pain and fertility. that's the plan anyway!

Have you tried accupuncture before? Painkillers don't seem to make a difference to me.....

i suffered for years with endo and bad period pains, then just before i got pregnant doing an ivf i went for acupuncture,the month after was the 1st pain free period i have ever had in my life.
I know it wont work for everyone, but its certainly worth a go to ease the pain and discomfort. Best of luck

Hi Andrea - I try and go every fortnight for accupuncture. The chinese lady I go to treats quite alot of women for fertility problems.

I've had 7 IUIs, one fresh and one frozen IVF. No joy so far. But another IVF planned in 6 months after laser suergy. Started fertility journey about 3 years ago! although it seems a VERY LONG time ago!!

There's some good endometriosis websites - I'll try and find some links for you...

I had the IUI on the NHS - and the IVF cost about 3 and a half thousand pounds as far as a I can remember in total. OUCH! Frozen IVF was cheaper - cos there were no drugs....

RE: You can be cured

Hi Andrea
I was diagnosed about 10 years ago, life does get better.....I had drug theraphy twice Provera was the best and the last time they did a lap they couldn't find any.
My sister bought me two books on the subject and I changed my diet which seemed to help. Now I suffer really badly from PMT but the AF is much better. There is a website which you might find helpful. http://www.endo.org.uk/ .

I went to talk to the pharmacist at boots about pain relief. She said to try Solphadine Max and then about 2 hours later take Ibuprofen, and take the right doses with the proper gaps for each medication. She said if that doesn't get rid of the pain to see your GP. She said there are other pain killers that are prescribed that are very good for period pain and also cut down the blood loss (I can't remember what they are). I didn't ask if they are okay to take while TTC.

I've tried doing this today, I'm on my 25th day of my cycle and have had cramps and backache for 21 of those days (normally about 14 or so days are painful, so this month has been bad). Af is not far off so my cramps are getting bad but not as bad as when af gets here, it hasn't worked and I'm so gutted! I think I need to try it with a hot water bottle as well, but that was a bit hard as I can't have one at work. One good thing is the codeine made me feel really chilled out!

Hi Sharon

I am going to investigate this! I'm so sick of having cramps and backache so often so anything that helps would be great! Did they want to give you herbs with it as well?

I've got just under 6 months to wait for an operation to see if I've got endo along with a lap and dye. I've asked if they will remove it if they find anything but it depends who is doing the op. I hope I wouldn't have to wait another 6 months for something to be done because its really starting to get me down!

I always thought you have to do accupuncture privately. I did ask last year how much it would cost for accupuncture alone, and was told that a course of 6 weeks with one treatment per week would cost around £150. They said its not a quick fix and could take a while to sort out some problems that I have with my af's/infertility.

Hi Girls I went thru recommendation its normally £30 per treatment and i used to be treated every other week i had endo and other issues after about 6 or 7 treatments i even had a BFP which i sadly lost but i do swear by it i was even able for the first time in my life at 37 stop taking pain relief for period pains . I went on the herbs for my IVF and sadly had to change practicioners as mine went on maternity leave i dont like this chap as much so i am now taking a break until the end of Feb. My previous practicioner was a traditional chinese practioner ( TCM) Good Luck xx

Accupuncturist

Hi Andrea

Rachie who is also from Plymouth recommended Sharon Yelland who is at The Crescent. The practice is in one of those old town houses down from the Mount Pleasant.

Apparently the sessions cost £40.00 for the first one and £30.00 thereafter. She is an ex midwife and has had lots of success in fertility.

I haven't made an appointment yet what with Xmas etc however will do very soon.

Sorry to hear about the pain. I so know how you feel. How many accupuncture sessions have you had? I know it took me a few to really feel the benefits. It's an accumulative affect. The only other thing that seems to help my pain is lots of hot baths. The heat really helps. I'm getting laser surgery in April to try and help it. I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to surgery!

Hi Andrea

Have you had any appointment with the fertility clinic yet? With the clinic we are at, there is a number to call if you have any questions or want to know anything. Its run by 3 of the nurses that deal with the fetility clinic so they know there stuff! They may recommend you need to see a consultant sooner than april. Or maybe you GP could get someone to see you sooner.

Good luck!

Phone your fertility clinic, its not going to do any harm. If your pain is getting a lot worse that quick and different from your normal pains, somethings not right. Maybe they won't do anything, but its worth asking.

Hiya, I suffer from endo adn pcos, so I know what you mean. I had some lazor done in April 2005 and my periods have only started getting weeird recently again. If you can get this option, it might be worth considering. Also I've went back on oil of evening primrose, adn it takes a month or two to kick in, but it def helps me with pmt and lessens a bit o f the pain. (I am going on here, sorry) My gp has me on ponstan and as they are anti inflammatries, they def help me too. So i am a bit aof a junkie, but at least I can get up and get on with things a bit.. :)) Hope this helps a little, Love Lesa xx

what normally happens next

i visted the fertility clinic last october where we discussed what has been going on i have been trying to concieve for 2 years 9 months but i concieved naturally after 9 months but i sadly lost my precious baby. i have had a lap last june where they discovered mild endo and adhesions when i went to the fertility clinic they did blood tests to test for stds which were all clear and als scanned my womb lining and ovaries to check for follicles mild cycle and that was all fine and they did a blood test on day 21 which was fine my husband has been checked and he is fine. i am due for a follow up in april and i was wondering what they are most likely to do next? also is it best to just wait for an appointment or chase them up. i feel as i am only 23 they look at me as if i am still young and i should go away and get on with it, but i stills hurts so much every month, also me and my husband are not a silly young couple we have been together for over 7 years and it just really frustrates me with the way they make me feel.

sorry for going on just want your advice on what steps are likely to be taken next??????????????

Sorry you're feeling down hun.

You're further ahead in your investigations than I am, so I don't really know what they do after all of the tests. I'm sure there are others on here that do. I just wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you and sending you a really big :hugs:.

I would chase it just in case you've been lost in the system.
I would just say something along the lines of.
'Hello, I'm expecting to come in for my six month follow up next month but I've not received an appointment ye,t Please can you have a quick look on the system for me to see if an appointment has been made. If there's nothing there and there is no explanation as to why not I'd ask them if they wouldn't mind looking into it for you. Most cliic staff realise that unfortunately patients appointments can occasionally go astray and they shouldn't mind looking into it for you.

good luck

Hi there

Yep i too would most def phone the clinic. Sometimes we can be waiting for ages and we need to remind them or give them a nudge. The admin is so busy and they have so much paper work that we find ourselves still in the outbox.

Simply call them , give you name and DOB and explain that you are still waiting for your first consultation and just wondered if they could give you any dates or guestimates as you need to inform your work, or fit your schedule around it.

It'll sure make you feel better chuck. ;)

Take care and good luck!

Hey there,

Definitely phone them. i've found that sadly it takes a great deal of pushiness to get anything to happen, esp with the NHS.

You shouldn't need your hosp no, just your name and DOB.

Good luck

That's good, at least you know where you are now.

Sometimes you have to give them a kick to make things happen.

Yes - big, long list, and don't be afriad to note stuff down in the appt. That way you can go over it later when you're calmer, and if anything's unclear you can call the doc's secretary - they usually know stuff.

and don't be surprised if they mention something you haven't even thought of yet...i think they do it for sport! :rolleyes:

If you need a hand with the questions I'm sure there will be FZ members with ideas.
