Hi there,

I am 36 and conceived both my sons naturally very easily. I have had several tries at IVF for a daughter without success. I don't make that many good quality embryos and not a great deal of girls either. I have also tried one donor embryo but it didn't have success either. Endometriosis was mentioned from yourself but would I be able to conceive naturally now if I had this or would it only effect IVF and implantation?

Many thanks, Lx

Yes you could conceive naturally with endo , many do , but it can still be responsible for implantation failure. I would suspect this greatly with your embyro quality at a young age. I would be happy to assist you in diagnosis and treatment, simply fill out a consult request form on the website and we will schedule a free 10 minute consult.

Hi there,
Is there a chance I could have endometriosis? I don't have particulary high estrogen (low end of the spectrum), and I don't have painful periods and they are quite light - 2-3 days usually with light flow.

I have problems with thin lining - it doesnt get above 8-9mm even with estrogen supplements. On ultrasound scans endometriosis has never has been mentioned, everything also looked good on the saline HyCoSy. The uterine biopsy did not show any inflammation.

I have repeat chemical pregnancies - 3 in 9 months, which got earlier each time. I have high NK cells in my uterus and blood. I have been told I have diminished egg reserve, and the quality has been terrible on my IVF's so far. I have only just turned 36. I am very upset, as we have been trying to have a baby since I turned 34, and I feel my time is running out so quickly :(

I do have low LAD's and MTHFR/PAI-1

thanks!

You can concieve naturally with endometriosis, that is the big misconception . This was thought since most with endometriosis that was diagnosed had stage IV and blocked tubes. In our patient population becasue we diagnose so many cases of early stage and silent endometriosis the tubes are not blocked, but the pateints still have issues with immune rejection and egg quality.
