Hello everyone I'm new to this and found some forums confusing and from last year, I hope it's ok to start a new one?

So I'm 29 have been with my partner for 10 years, we have been TTC for 7 years. I have been pregnant once in this time but unfortunately it didn't work out, since then I have been on clomid (double dose) for 7 months ... Nothing, as a result of being on these for so long with no scans or monitoring I managed to grow several cysts and was told I have endometriosis (the clomid really didn't get along with endo) which then led to a laparoscopy. Tbh I'm confused about my fertility as such as one consultant said the endo is the cause and another suggesting it has no impact on my fertility and it's unknown sad my partners tests all came back fine and raring to go ...

We start IVF on Thursday all our tests are complete and it's injection time - feeling very anxious but excited to get started this has been going in motion since January!! I suppose I'm looking for hope/tips .. Evan a heads up.. Also curious on success or not for ladies around my age with endo suppose I want to prepare myself (not to be negative just have all possibilities thought about).

Thanks for reading my post xx

Hi Optimistic. You might want to have a look at the egg buddies thread over in Conception - it is a collection of people cycling around now. I'm on there. I should be starting cycle 4 around next week.

Yep - IVF cycle 4. The first three were natural IVF. This'll be the first go with drugs.
