Commencing post-surgery cycle....

AF here!
Good, good, we can commence "first cycle after surgery"!  (Natural, but for over the counter supplements.  Not sure I am totally healed yet, not really expecting anything)

And she's just here - no calling cards for 3 days, she just suddenly arrived.  Interesting, right?  I wonder if TEBB will be gone?  Is that linked to getting endo removed?  Or I wonder if she came because I forgot my progesterone cream this morning?  That would be so interesting too.

And here is a question - is your first AF post-surgery worse, better, or same as usual?

I was thinking to myself "what is the average amount of months I can expect to get pg in" (if endo was the last problem) - survey says - 10.6 months.   (Well, I was actually thinking - is it possible to get pg first month after surgery, or are things still healing in there - anyone know?).  Then I stumbled across these lame stats.  50% chance of pregnancy after 5 IUIs?  Only 5% chance per month naturally?  Boooourns.  (Up from 2% pre-surgery - are you kidding me?!)

I think I will put those from my head.

So I have definitely been noticing my lymph node in my R armpit is always sore before my AF visit.  Is that usual?  Dr Google is not clear.  I will bring it up with Dr Love when I see him next (in a few weeks).  Could my dear progesterone cream be doing this?


  1. Hooray for a new cycle..."endo-free!!!" I am hopeful for you, CS! You can defy the stats. :)

  2. Just wanted to say congrats on the new cycle!!! How exciting :) From experience, I had surgery for Endo in July 2011, waited one month to heal and tried our first IUI Sept 2011, I got pregnant!!! Sadly I miscarried that same Nov... So we are waiting to try IUI again in May, we tried IUI in March but it was a BFN, Boooo. Any-who Good luck lady!!!

  3. My first post-op cycle was not fun, but it's amazing how little pain and discomfort I
    have now. It's like night and day!

    I was told that six month post-op are the best time to conceive. My doc also told me that it could take up to 12 months of viable cycles. I'm at the five month mark now and I'm trying not to get discouraged. :)

  4. Thanks for the tips everyone!

  5. Yay for a fresh, new cycle! My first few were terrible! But I've heard others say that they felt great after surgery. I hope yours go nicely. Wishing you a speedy BFP, too. This was my 5th cycle since surgery, and we almost got there...but I think it's my immune issues more than anything else that's causing so much trouble. Might be worth looking into some immune testing just in case. Good luck to you!!
