Pregnancy After Birth Controll Pills As A Treatment For My Endo?

Pregnancy After Birth Controll Pills As A Treatment For My Endo?

I had been using BC pills as a treatment for my endo for about 3 years, it was the only thing that worked for me. I stopped taking the BC pills August of last year and still no baby. Has anyone used BC pills as treatment and been able to get pregnant after treatment ended? Side note: I also only have half of my right ovary and my full left ovary. Considering going to a fertility specialist. Thoughts?

Have you had surgery? We’re you menstruating on the BC pills you were on? I had excision surgery and was on visanne for 2.5 years to treat my endo, I was not menstruating, and concieved a few months after I stopped taking visanne. I saw a naturopath to help though. Diet, supplements, self care and a toxic free lifestyle played a huge role in helping me to concieve.

I was regulary menstruating while on the BC pills and still do have a pretty regular cycle. Its off a day or two sometimes. I had surgery in the past, last one about 4 years ago when they took half my right ovary. My gynecological oncologist who was also my surgeon said he didnt see any reason why I would be able to conceive at this point though it is a possibility to take a little longer with half the right ovary. I started taking vitamins and watching my diet and I do feel much better, just need to lose some weight now.
