Can IVF mess up your cycle and cause endometriosis?

Postby reddress » Thu Feb 09, 2006 2:08 am

hello :)

I'm 30 and my husband and I have been trying for 13 months. After 2 failed IUI's, we decided to try IVF. I tracked my cycles with the Clear Blue Fertility monitor for a year before we started TTC, and I always ovulated on the 15th day, period on the 29th day. The IVF did not work, and for the past 2 months post IVF, my cycles have been crazy! Last month it was 36 days, this month I ovulated on day 26 so I'm expecting a 40 day cycle! Has this happened to anybody else!?!?

Also, I previously had cysts on my ovaries that were small and would go away by the end of the cycle, but post IVF, I now have a large cyst that the doctors are now thinking may be endometriosis... uternine tissue traveling up the fallopian tube and creating a cyst. So now I'm completely freaked out!

I was just wondering if anybody has any insight on what this could mean? I always had very regular cycles and hardly any period pain. The doctor originally ruled out endometriosis... but it looks like I may have it after all. Could the IVF/hormones caused it? I'm so confused and scared!
