Hello, ladies! I've conquered the final chapter of NaPro infertility testing. Dr. Stig.en did the laparoscopy on Wednesday. I was able to recover (still recovering, actually) at a wonderful house in the O..C. The weather was amazingly warm and the ocean air was refreshing. The incision pain is minimal and clearly the worst part of the surgery for me was the lingering CO2 gas. The shoulder pain sucked and the pressure on my diaphragm made me feel uber stiff. Seventy-two hours later, I'm just starting to feel back to normal although belly bloating continues to stalk me.
Stig.en found just a tiny bit on endometriosis on my left ovary so she zapped that off. Other than that, all the organs looked super. However, I did have endometrial inflammation so she did some cultures during the hysteroscopy and I/the husband might be on an antibiotic later this week. I was surprised to see in the surgery video that the ovaries are stark white. Scary.
So, she wants me to take 25mg of Clomid next cycle. Dr. Douche actually offered me Clomid back in January but I'm pretty confident going through this whole testing thing was worth it. Stige.n wants me to go back to charting (yeah) and taking the FertileCM and B6. So, hopefully Clomid won't kill my already dismal CM and the supplements might actually work this time. Back on the bandwagon. I should be getting my period in the next few days.
