This is my first post so excuse me if this is in the wrong area.
My husband and I have been TTC for about a year. We recently began having testing done w/ an infertility clinic. They have confirmed that I am definitely ovulating, typically cycle day 17. I have a very regular 28/29 day cycle. My progestrone is normal. My husband's sperm analyzes came back amazing. The doctor actually said its the best he has ever seen.
All that being said they are now strongly suggesting I have a laparoscopic surgery so they can see what is happening/ if there is a blockage, etc.
Can anyone tell me there experience with this step?
I had one done a year and a half ago. For years I was being treated for endometriosis, and finally had the exploratory lap done to confirm it. The surgery isn't bad. I was on my way home within an hour of the surgery ending. Walking and getting around wasn't hard for me...just getting in and out of bed. My incisions, one on my bikini line, about an inch, and one in my belly button, healed quickly. If they are recommending the surgery, I would do it. To have answers and a fairly easy recovery, that would be peace of mind...and also you can go on to the next step.
I hope that all made sense. I didn't have the surgery because of infertility, so I am not sure if there is a difference...although I do know that if they find blockage in your tubes, they should try to correct that. (I had a tubal reversal this summer, so if your tubes are blocked, that can be fixed, relatively easily.) I would also suggest maybe an HSG before the surgery to see if they can determine if there is blockage.

I have suspected Endo, only b/c of horrible periods in my teen years, but after having my daughter 6 years ago those symptoms kinda subsided. I do get pain with bowel movements during AF, so that's suggests lesions...my dr. said that if we don't conceive within a year, then I'll try the Laproscopic surgery to find out....
