Yesterday I was almost ready to trigger shot. Today I found out how good my lining was. Also found out today that I have a polyp in my uterine cavity. Doctor called and said I should get a Hysteroscopy Polpectomy either before next cycle starts if I don’t get pregnant from this cycle or cancel this one and do the polyp removal surgery as soon as I can.
Now I stopped my cycle. She thought that was the best idea but I had the choice. Knowing that polyps can keep the eggies from sticking, or if they do stick it could cause a miscarriage, I made the choice to stop the cycle. She informed me that my polyp was pretty big, kind of the size of a big grape and it was taking up most of the space in my uterine cavity. The measurements for the polyp were 21x12mm in centimeters it was 2.1×1.2cm.
I know that not all polyps have to be removed to get pregnant and stay pregnant but she said this was a big one. I don’t have very much money to try many cycles two for sure three or more maybe. So I can save my donor sperm for a different cycle for a better outcome. I dont really want to get pregnant and then misscarry if I can try to prevent it. When the time comes I’m going to take Prometrium Vaginal Pills to also help the eggies to stick and not miscarry.
My mom is financing all of this. It’s kind of hard because she is my mom and not a partner or spouse, so I don’t know how she will react to things. I know she loves me but I worry about the money and our relationship. So I told her all the news and she was relieved and all happy that they found the polyp and wants it out of me, and she doesn’t care about the money for the three ultrasounds that I had. She doesnt think they are a waste she thinks it caught a polyp and if I never tried to get pregnant I would have never known. Big relief having my mom’s support. Polyps have a very small chance at being precancerous I have read, I dont know too much about it. So I’m actually at peace as long as I quit googling getting polyp removal.
Makes since now, why a over a year ago I was having spotting for two months straight. My OBGYN didn’t want to check it out with a procedure cuz it is a painful procedure so she recommended taking birth control first to see if that corrects it. Well I took the birth control for so many months and then stopped and the spotting stopped. Some people never hae symptoms of a polyp.
I have another chance at a month of trying to eat better and lose a couple of pounds and getting more stress free and stuff, you know like exercise. Don’t know if that will happen but I have another month or so of trying to prepare. But for tonight I made a pot of coconut coffee all for me to drink!!!!! I get to forget about my ovaries and lady parts for a bit and just rest. I’m watching True Blood a vampire tv series.
I know a lot of people’s fertility stories are infertility stories with a lot more hardship, but I still need a place to vent and share and have buddies to encourage me on my way as I also encourage you and listen to you.
I wrote this exhausted I might come back and fix it, but not feeling like it. Good thing grammar has nothing to do with all this trying to get pregnant.
