I had this procedure yesterday and am now at home off for the next week just wondered what I am supposed to do now in terms of next steps? Just wait and see? How will I know if it has worked or not? I have Clomid resistant pcos been ttc for nearly 9 months

Start shagging is my suggestion (or as soon as you're allowed). I have heard of quite a few people who have had problems conceiving that have got pregnant immediately following a lap & dye! May or may not work but worth a try. Something to do with stimulating your ovaries or unblocking something, I'm not quite sure.

Your consultant should've given you a bit more idea about what happens next though. Maybe you should speak to them, or your GP?

Yea I've got an appointment with the fertility clinic in 4 weeks so hopefully something will happen before then to get things going... Hope it has been worth it as it is mega sore

Havingkittens Wed 20-Jul-11 10:53:39

Sorry to hear that. May want to hold of on the shagging then I suppose! It's just that I have heard of people getting pregnant unexpectedly after this procedure.

smile I'll be alright, back to SWI when soreness goes down they said about 3-5 days

MalibuStac Wed 20-Jul-11 14:12:00

I got pg 6 weeks after a lap and dye while taking metformin, clomid didn't work for me either. Get to it when the soreness fades.

pinkapples Wed 20-Jul-11 18:17:41

Awww so nice to hear it might all be worth it

pinkapples Wed 20-Jul-11 18:23:55

Did u have a period first or just started SWI

pinkapples Thu 21-Jul-11 15:36:40

Pain starting to ease off but still sore sad am enjoying lots of bed rest and living having dh take care of me smile

MalibuStac Thu 21-Jul-11 20:34:38

Sorry I haven't replied quicker. I bled after the lap n dye then I had another af then bfp. But we just SWI after the first bleed stopped. Glad dh is looking after you. Are you ttc #1?

pinkapples Fri 22-Jul-11 06:30:39

Yea ttc 1 for the last nine months, I have pcos so always knew it might be difficult luckier than most o guess cuz I have known since I was 15 so I expected it. 3 days post op now still sore when I move in certain directions but am still on bed rest how long did it take for AF after ur lap?

MalibuStac Fri 22-Jul-11 17:17:19

I have pcos too. Had ds at 19 without any problems started ttc #2 so stopped the pill nothing happened. Af didn't come for months gp started doing tests and found I had pcos. Took 6 rounds of clomid only ov'd once. Got sent for lap & dye, blead because of it. Went back to gynecologist who said they couldn't help me further as I had ds. I asked for metformin to help with the ovulation and took them. Then af arrived about a month to 6 weeks later without having to take progesteron. Next af kind of spotted over the space of 3 weeks doc thought I had a burst cyst as I was in lots of pain but I was actually pregnant. Dd just turned 1. It will happen just harder for us.

pinkapples Fri 22-Jul-11 17:27:31

Yea I'm sure it will eventually... Had 6 roofs of clomid already so not sure what they will do next if this doesn't work

MalibuStac Fri 22-Jul-11 22:35:56

Have you taken metformin? There are lots of options for you for ttc. When you back at the consultant? It was different for me due to already having ds.

pinkapples Sat 23-Jul-11 07:19:29

No not taken that just Provera and then Clomid I'm back at the fertility clinic on 16th of august so should have a better idea by then what is or is not going on x

MalibuStac Sat 23-Jul-11 09:31:12

Are you feeling any better? X

pinkapples Sat 23-Jul-11 09:32:36

Yea feeling alright today thanks smile dressed for the first time in 4 days so that must be a good sign grin

MalibuStac Sun 24-Jul-11 21:56:32

Definitly a good sign. Dp and I are hoping to ttc #3 soon but have to move house first.

pinkapples Sun 24-Jul-11 22:09:55

Hubby and I did all that last yr, bought a house got married and ttc %231 all in under 6 months hehe hope the move goes ok

pinkapples Sun 24-Jul-11 22:10:50

That meant to say just ttc 1 hehe how long did it take u to bleed after ur lap

MalibuStac Mon 25-Jul-11 04:32:03

I bled straight away then again a month(ish) later. But I think that was the metformin. Have you bled? I think the dye brought on my bleeding.

MalibuStac Mon 25-Jul-11 04:36:50

Sorry last message doesn't make sense. I think I had af without provera due to metformin but I think the bleeding after the scan was due to the dye they use.

pinkapples Mon 25-Jul-11 07:42:55

I spotted straight after for a day or so also with some remnants of blue but nothing since been told just to wait and c if it happens naturally but got an apt in 4 weeks so...smile

CleanSheetsAndSmoothLegs Mon 25-Jul-11 07:49:16

I had mine on Wednesday, but don't get a follow up appointment for 3 months sad

Despite my post on the other thread, I think I am actually spotting rather than menstruating.

Are you having sex, pinkapples? My stomach is decidedly sore, but I keep reading stories of people becoming pregnant in the first month after the operation, so don't want to miss a good chance!

pinkapples Mon 25-Jul-11 09:50:51

Dh and I are not at the mo as like u my stomach around the incisions is a bit sore. May give it s go at some point this week tho as it is getting better. Did u have a period before the lap? I think u can get preg if u have one before then have the lap then SWI. I didnt have ones I dont have them at all without induction so I was told to wait for a period then SWI got an apt in 4 weeks tho so hopefully they will b able to sort it if nothing has happened
