ITP - Endometrosis - Pregnancy

ITP - Endometrosis - Pregnancy was created by Stefhnie
hello there,

I am starting to feel nervous if my history of endometrosis in 2006 reduced my chances of fertilty after failed attempts of pregnancy since 3 months ago - or am I just too impatient?

My platelet counts recently fell to 10k - I have to constantly change my pad, also sure my HGb level dropped dramatically as a result. The heavy blood clots sets me worrying if the cysts are back or its just due to the low counts - my gynae 'discharged' me from the annual scan 2009 citing there is no reason to return for regular check up. I did a last CT scan February this year it was all clean and normal, but I am afraid because of the history.

Has anyone who has endometrosis history manage to conceive easy, or affected your fertility?
Reading up on the internet lately, there were some suggestion on cleansing the body;
removing old blood, detoxify the liver, hormonal balance etc. Are these necessary?
Should I take start taking these supplments or any others?

What are your experiences please.

Thanks very much.

Steph,

I don't know much about either ITP or endometriosis, but I am pretty sure that the average time to conceive is something like 6 months. And thats for all people. Obviously some are quicker and some slower, but I imagine its a pretty normal distribution with most around the average. Maybe you just need to chill out a bit about it?

Speaking as a parent of teenagers, I wouldn't always wholeheartedly recommend children, but good luck anyway!

Thank you for your input Ali. I used to think average of 6-12mnths is normal, but when I realise people around me getting pregnant easier it just sets me thinking. I am also considering to purchase "pre-natal formula" from GNC to start preparing my body in hope that it helps.
