Endometriosis, How I Haven't Missed You!

Just finished up with my appointment with my family doctor, and I'm actually kind of relieved.

It's definitely not PCOS. No cysts! Yay! And all my bloodwork for my hormone levels came back normal. I do have high cholesterol, which was kind of a surprise to me, but my mom also has it, so it's likely hereditary. She is putting me on meds to control that. As far as the pelvic pain goes, she seems to think it's endometriosis. I was diagnosed with that back in 2005 when I was having similar issues, and my OB removed a TON of it!'s likely I will have to have another lap to remove it. I really feel like this will allow my cycles to return to normal (at least for a short while) and it doesn't seem like I'm going to need meds to help me ovulate. Or at least I'm guessing he'll at least wait and see if I can do it on my own first.

I feel such a relief that it's not PCOS...and it's something that can be treated (at least long enough to conceive).

And, I'm pretty sure I O'ed on Saturday. My temps are up and if they stay up, FF will give me crosshairs tomorrow!
