Had to move this post…I guess a realization I no longer belong on the “IVF” forum. Just use to posting there but no interest for this there. Hoping I can find some feedback here
I’m just so frustrated with this major piece of my infertility lately. It’s robbed me of my reproductive years and I’m angry. Our journey using ART is over but I try to hold on to hope of a natural BFP eventually. For those of you with POF, what other factors are you dealing with? Like, what in your opinion (or your RE’s) could be making it worse? I have autoimmune issues. not necessarily with attacking pregnancies, I just have multiple autoimmune diseases. So my fertility is just bombarded by by endo, autoimmune diseases, and POF. My RE believes my endo damaged my ovaries to the extent that they are just shutting down early but I’m not sure this makes sense to me. My endo was only staged between 2-3 at diagnosis so it’s not like I’ve had stage 4. I was moved to stage 3 after my second lap because of an endometrioma. But has anyone else had their RE tell them that this can damage your ovaries to the point that they shut down? I’m just going through a phase I guess where I’m wanting some answers for what has caused things to be the way they are at this point. And my RE really has a lot of IDK’s for me. I don’t blame him but it’s hard to figure out what caused it all for sure.
