pain after ivf

Hi Cath,<br>I also found that my pain seemed to increase after my first ivf. I have a history of endo too. I particularly noticed a niggly pain in my left side and eventually persuaded the Dr to scan me before the 2nd ivf. He discovered a small endometrioma had developed. However when I had the stim scans for my 2nd ivf, it had disappeared. I think the stim drugs can aggravate the endo a bit. It's worth discussing it with your Dr I think. I don't know about you though, but whilst focusing on the tx you want to try and forget about having to deal with endo too. Are you going to be having more tx soon? Take care,<br>Love Laura
