Have you ever been told after the retrieval that your eggs were brown?

I had to go through a major surgery to remove a big mass and cysts due to endometriosis back in 2010,one of my tube was removed during the surgery, and the remaining one didn’t look good neither. That was why IVF is my only chance to have a baby of my own. I just found out that my 1st IVF failed today, but my RE didn’t mention the failure is related to endometriosis.

The impact of endometriosis do to IVF is that the doctors won’t be able to retrieve the eggs if they are located behind a cysts. That was the only thing my RE told me .

Hopefully I answer your questions.

I am sorryfor the negative outcome, but sometimes IVF takes time.Since you have endo, I would check cytokines because if they are elevated, they can cause absence of implantation or perhaps a chemical pregnancy. You should ask your dr about hormonal side-effects of endometriosis

Thank you very much for the suggestion. I never heard about the issue of cytokines. That sounds scary! I would definitely discuss it with my RE.
