DH and I just started TTC this month, so this is the FIRST month we've ever had sex during my ovulation except for when we conceived DD (which happened the first time). Since Ive had my daughter though Ive been able to feel my ovulation mid cycle, I have ovulation pains so we never have sex during them because my uterus feel tender and I don't want to irritate it. Well this month we obviously had to because we are TTC. Well we've been doing it for the last 5 days which is my ovulation window and I tested positive on an ovulation test. My O pains started 3 days before my positive O test. So today its been the 5th day of doing it with my O pains and today I was really sore when we tried. Well after that ive been hurting even more all day and been cramping a ton in my uterus, back and pain radiating down my legs. I am starting to suspect endometriosis. I have always suspected I had it but never looked into it. I have always had SEVERE periods, so bad I cant do anything the first day because its sooo painful.
Well today after hurting all day I started using a heating pad to try and sooth the pain. After sitting with that for about an hour off and on I got up to brush my teeth and started having what felt like uterine contractions, and they were PAINFUL!!! So DH carried me to bed because it hurt to move but they have now stopped. Im concerned about endometriosis and if I do have it will it hinder my ability to conceive this time around?? Obviously the first time around I wasnt having this issue. I only have these pains during my period and during ovulation, I dont have them any other time of the month. I also do not have them during sex unless I am ovulating obviously but I usually try to avoid doing it then.
Im just worried that TTC may not happen now if I do have endometriosis and I know it can get worse over the years. Anyone else experience this??
FYI the pain has stopped and I have NOT had any bleeding.
