Endo specialist

We're half way through our third IVF cycle and turns out I have an suspected endometrioma cyst so suspected endometriosis (previously unexplained).

Does anyone have any recommendations for a endometriosis specialist? Both to continue our fertility treatment and to undertake any surgery that might be necessary.

We're currently with CARE Mcr under Dr Lowe and although we've found him great, I'm now wondering if we could do with a second opinion or to transfer to a new doctor that has a special interest in endo.

Just feel like our odds of this working has massively plummeted so trying to hatch a plan to help me feel a little more positive.

Thanks for reading!! xxx

I think it's Mr Mann at Birmingham that someone I know was under and said he was brilliant. Think he only does private work now. I was considering trying to get a referral to him but am happy so far with my local care.

Thanks so much @squirrelnutkins1 he looks great! I have an appointment with my IVF consultant Thursday next week so should hopefully have a plan of action soon!

Are you having endo treatment alongside IVF? x

No worries! I had a laparoscopy this year and had quite a bit of endo lazered off along with a bit of unsticking blush we conceived naturally 7 weeks later but sadly miscarried so I'm waiting for my next clinic appointment to discuss next steps. I think we'll be trying Letrazole for a few cycles then IUI x3 before IVF. Long hard road isn't it!
