Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   hello, I am a 24 year old female and have no children. I had severe endometriosis and cysts and have had 2 laparoscopys done in early jan. 2008. I have had regular periods up until september 4th...i've taken numerous home pregnancy tests as well as blood work at the doctors and all have shown up negative, I've had everything from vomiting,tiredness, very sore breasts and slight pain in my abdomen..I've been to various doctors and haven't had any luck with getting a ultrasound appointment from a doctor...any ideas on what could be going on?
Doctor :   What medications are you taking now?
User :   i am not taking any other than folic acid which my doctor had prescribed because I am trying to get pregnant
User :   she has given me 6 months to try and conceive
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   First you need an Ultrasound to determine whether the Endometriosis has gone down or not.
User : even with the blood work done is there still any chance that i may be pregnant?
Doctor :   Once the Endometriosis has subsided,
User :   the last we checked it had gone down because i was taking lupron at one point..that is the reason why the doctor had given me the 6 months to try and get pregnant
Doctor :   You can try for pregnancy and if that still does not work out then you may need Ovulation induction with drugs like Clomiphene that will cause ovulation in you.
Doctor :   Ok
