:'( Ive recently had a laparosopy, since 2008 Ive had a miscarriage, ruptured chocolate cysts, emergency laparoscopy, scans, hormone injections, more scans. i was starting to feel like maybe all the pain i was in was all in my head, they suspected en dometriosis. its played a big part in my day to day life. i finally got asked if i wanted more investigations and i jumped at it. they found scarring, signs of en dometriosis and infection, my tubes are completely damaged and as a result was told i have a very small chance of getting pregnant and if i did it would end up ectopic, he wants me to remain on the contraceptive pill and see me again in two months to discuss options of having my tubes removed and ivf. They also had to free it off of my intestine. He said it was in a mess but hes done the best to put things back where they should be. my partner has been fantastic hes really been my rock. Its left me feeling so alone and empty... Cant get my head around it. Guess you never think it will happen to you and take getting pregnant as a given. :(
