I am 37 and had a miscarriage in January 2012. We have been TTC since around March 2012 with no success.
We have been to a fertility clinic and have done all the preliminary tests which show that there are no problems at all. The only thing left to do is a laparascopy to rule out endemetriosis or blockages. I am really reluctant to go down this road as it seems invasive.
I feel sad all the time and starting to get really depressed to a point where I am crying for no particular reason. Do you think I am unreasonably depressed about not being able to conceive in the last 14 months or do we just give it more time?
Does anxiety affect fertility or is that just a myth? I had a really bad experience with the doctor and hospital when I miscarried and found that until a month ago I was still really angry about it. I have been dealing with it and do feel better about the experience. Again, did my traumatic experience perhaps affect my ability to conceive again?
As said above, I am really reluctant to go for the Lap, does anybody else feel this way about the surgery even though it is apparently minor? Any body else in the same boat?
I just feel completely deflated right now and my instinct tells me that I do not need the surgery but I am afraid that I may be confusing intuition with fear. Yes, I am really afraid to do this…however, if there are no more options I know I will eventually bite the bullet and just go.
I know I sound confused but I just don’t know what to do right now. Have we given it enough time?
Any help would be appreciated and any advice please.
