Looking for IVF success stories with severe endometriosis

Hi ladies 😊

I’m hoping to find some support and success stories from any ladies who have severe endo and have gone through IVF. 

I had my lap & dye on Friday and the results were as I expected - I have severe endo which indicated tubal infertility. I had a large cyst on my right ovary and another cyst on my left which they drained and removed the sticky endo which was found within the pelvic region and pouch of Douglas. I’m recovering really well but the only option given to help us conceive was IVF which again I expected due to not conceiving for 2 years and the excruciating pain I had each month. Kinda got my head around that bit now.

My cons is keen to remove both my tubes to ensure IVF is more successful and whilst I know he’s right, I can’t help feel so saddened by this. The dye didn’t barely pass through my tubes and he explained during IVF the embryo could move to the tubes causing an eptopic pregnancy.

Cons has put me on 4 months worth of Prostap to reduce my endo symptoms and stop anymore cysts from forming on my ovaries and he said we could expect to start IVF within the year. 

Just looking for any one who can guide me on the process, if anyone had tube removal & in general just some hope & support to keep my PMA going 😊 

Thanks ladies xx
