Endo & Infertility
Hello! I was diagnosed with Stage IV endo in August 2009 following a laparotomy. I have been trying to get pregnant since April 2010 and have not been able to. I've done multiple IUIs and one IVF, all failed. Since my husband and I are unsure if we will try IVF again I asked my OBGYN about my options for treating the endo. He suggested birth control, which I initially agreed to. Now I find that I just cannot make myself take it as I still want to become pregnant. I see you recommend 500mg per day for endo and have a few questions. Despite having severe endo I have minimal pain, should I still use 500mg per day? I'm trying to figure out how much of the cream would equal 500mg. Is it 5tsp? Also, since I wish to become pregnant would it be best to start using the cream on day 12 of my cycle? My cycle is usually 28 days with LH surge first detected on day 14. Thanks!
