I had my hysteroscopy this morning to
make sure there are no uterine polyps, fibroids, etc. that could
interfere with implantation when we do IVF.First of all, ouch. It hurt.
of all, we didn't get great news. Our RE mentioned something about the
potential of my ute's not developing in a certain part. That's when I
got really upset; I was afraid that would mean I could never carry a
baby. He ended up telling me, though, that he doesn't think that's the
case because that never showed up on the HSG. He told us he thinks it's
scar tissue; it's weird, though, because I've never had surgery on my
ute. I did have an appendectomy earlier this year and I'm kinda
wondering if maybe they nicked it by accident or something.Our
RE was puzzled because he said usually you don't see scar tissue on
someone's ute unless she's had a m/c, D&C, or some type of uterine
surgery. I guess I'm just special.
He was gonna be talking to the other doctors in the office about it
today and double checking my HSG images, but told us that we're probably
gonna be delayed a month or two for IVF. *sigh* I hate IF.
Update: OK...our RE just called to tell me that he discussed everything with the
other doctors and he wants me to have a 3-D ultra sound done (ugh) and
then we'll go from there.
The good news is that if this is in fact scar tissue, we may be able to
try IUIs again once it gets resolved. He had told us at our IVF consult
that he didn't know why our IUIs hadn't worked since DH's numbers
weren't too bad (the first 2 times, anyway); when I asked him about it
tonight, he said that it's a definite possibility that we could try that
again, depending on what happens with this whole thing. Either way, we're still delayed, though.
I am so sorry to hear you are getting delayed.
On the flip side how is exciting that you finally know why you are not getting pregnant, and with that knowledge they can move forward. Wishing you nothing but the best, keep us posted! ((((hugs))))
