did it take until your symptoms came back in full force?
I have a feeling this month will be a doozy... last month was painful, but not AWFUL. and this month I'm getting those twinges and sharp pains, and praying this isn't time again for this all to come back.
After years of trying, 2 years of fertility meds, multiple surgeries, blood draws and needle sticks, some awful pre-IVF complications, and endometriosis and PCOS,
We are done TTC. Praying for peace as we accept this...
Hoping for some comfort after our most recent (and 3rd) surgery and starting Lupron!
My first lap the pain was back just as bad the second cycle and I started Lurpon, the second one it was back at about the third month and I started the Depo shot and it stayed away. This time my first two cycles were HORRIBLE this last one I had no pain but it was just weird anyway. I have a feeling this month is going to be bad too. I hope you're just having an "off" month and it's not coming back

I will have a hard time answering this question but I will try.
I had my lap done Nov 26 2007
my first af was awful. the second & third one were very awesome no pain what so ever. On my 3rd cycle I got my bfp with my son.
Gave birth in Oct 08
got one depo shot Dec 08.
didnt see af again until May 09
didnt see her after that until Sept 09
then had a few painful af's and a few not so painful ones with light bleeding. Im still unsure if I need another lap or not. It weirds me out that sometimes I don't have alot of pain and some months I was dying. Now we will see how it goes after this babe is born and I won't be getting a depo shot.
2 weeks after my surgery was my first AF and it was just the same as before- TERRIBLE. The next one was painfree- never knew there was such a thing! That was the only relief, as the pain returned the 3rd cycle and never went away. Keep in mind, though, that most of my endo wasn't removed (couldn't be), so I shouldn't have expected too much relief.
Thank you brie_91 for this fabulous siggy!!
Our TTC journey: 6 cycles Clomid, lap surgery/ D&C, IUI, 2 x IVF; 33 cycles- BFN.
IVF#1 (March 2010) Transferred two 8-cell grade A (perfect) embies- BFN and heartbroken.
IVF#2/FET#1 (Jan/Feb 2011):Transferred two (7&8 cell) grade A (PERFECT) embies- BFN again.
March 2011- February 2012: On BCP due to endometriosis.
March 2012- taking a few months off of BCP and we are TTC naturally.
We will re-evaluate another IVF w/FET try in 2013.
my AF has been better since the 2nd cycle (first was still raw i think)...this is the 6th month and it isnt so bad. for me the preAF spotting is a big sign for me (as this is a symptom of endo) so i dont think its back. but my pain never went away in all this time. i think they say its a 50 - 70 % level of pain to what you had before.
