I have endo and have 3 IUI's. My last laproscopy in March was all clear and my tubes were open. I just did a live chat with Dr. Sher at the SIRM Institute. He said I have no chance of getting pregnant with an IUI because I have a "toxic enviroment". He said 33% of endo patients have a toxic enviorment. My only solution is IVF. I started crying because we can't do IVF yet. I am 33 years old and wondering if anyone here has endo and had a successful IUI. My RE said that the IUI's should work. I am really confused and stressed out.
Sorry to vent.

Hi Soul. I don't really have a good answer for you. I did have endo, but they didn't find it until they did the surgery to remove my ectopic. So...I guess you could say I was sort of successful in getting a BFP and having endo.
Ugh....Danielle (32), DH (32)

I don't have Endo. so I can't comment on that, but if what Dr. Sher said is true, then you have a 67% chance of NOT having a "toxic environment". If that is the case, I would think that IUI's may work for you. He really shouldn't have said that there is NO chance of it working. That is my two cents worth.
I hope you the best!

I agree with you. After I got upset by what Dr Sher was saying my hubby reminded me that 67% DO not have a toxic enviroment. Thank you girls for being so supportive, it really makes a big difference to me.
Dee, thank you for your comment, I am so sorry that your last pg ended up being etopic. I know you are getting to test so I am looking forward to you getting a BFP!
Thank you again!
