TTC 1st cycle after Laparoscopy (Graphic Photos)

My Fiance and I have been TTC for 2 1/2 yrs now. We started seeing a Fertility Specialist in December and had great success as far as what to do. First we found out that I need to have the booster shot again because I was Rubella Vaccine (measels) Negative, so we had to wait two more months on TTC.

During the two month waiting period we decided that to speak with our dr more about how I have been feeling during intercourse and how there are times we would have to stop half way through because I was in tears due to pain. 

My doctor first did a Blue dye test/x-ray to see how my fallopian tubes looked, at first they both looked blocked which would explain why I could never concieve. Then we wanted to know why there would have been what looked like scare tissue. 

On February 14th I was Ovulating then on February 21 I had a Laparoscopy done. The Doctor found that I had/have almost stage 2 Endometriosis. He however removed all of it, but is concerned about how quickly it may come back because I have Fibromyalgia which causes and works hand in hand with Endo.

Anyone have success right after having a Laparoscopy done?

How soon was it before you had conceived?


These are photos of what my Doctor found and what it looked like afterwards.

HERE IS MY GREAT SUCCESS STORY :

5 years of TTC with no luck, I was diagonsed in 2001 with PCOS.  I got pregnant with my DD in 2003 after stopping fertility meds from a previous relationship.  ( she is 9 years old )

DH and I have seen 3 doctors in 5 years, our new doctor said i think there is more going on then PCOS.  He sugested that we do lap. surgery.  So Oct. 3,2012 I did have this surgery done.  HE DID FIND ENDO + large cysts.  He removed most of the endo and drilled on the cysts.

I did not get my cycles (as usual ) so i tool provera in Nov. , which was my 1st cycle.  On Dec. 21, 2012 my cycle came on its own. I took my Clomid (as always ) and continued metformin , steroids.

Jan 6, 2013 I ovulated and Jan. 17, 2013 I for my first BFP !!!  I am now 11 weeks pregnant !  The surgery did it !  Without surgery i would have never known about the endo and would have continued taking meds for no reason !!!!

Oh my goodness! This gives me butterflies just reading it. The only thing I have is endo and I got pregnant the first time by a former bf while he using a condom so it definately was very easy for me to get pregnant. So I am truly hoping that this surgery does it for me too. Thank You so much for the encouragement. We're hoping March is it for us :)

I had endo too. First doctor didn't do the laparoscopy correctly. Had another one done 2 years later by robotic surgery. I got pregnant 2 months later. Unfortunately I lost the baby at 11 weeks so back to square one. Took two months off TTC and now am on month 3 TTC. I was tested for and found to have adrenal fatigue. I am reading Adrenal Fatigue the 21st Century Stress Syndrome. They talk a lot about how it can cause fibromyalgia. Also found out my estrogen is not metabolizing correctly which is why I have the endo.
