    Default Help needed!! Lurkers welcome!!M/c mentioned

    Hi ladies!

    Can you help.
    I just had a distraught text from a friend of mine.
    She has been trying for no 2 for a year now. She sadly had a miscarriage over summer and has had light af and very irregular cycles.
    She has pcos and has finally been referred tona gynae.
    Thing is she is seeing a herbalist as well and he has put the fear up her.
    He said that sometimes when having a d and c it can remove too much lining and that the lining never grows back and that this would tie in to her light periods and long cycles etc.
    I myself have never heard if this.
    She is distraught.
    Is he scare mongering or us this actually Proved.
    I can't find anything online about it.
    I am cross that he has upset her so much!!!
    Thanks for any info.

    I am no expert Love, but that does not sound right. What multiple D&C's CAN do is cause scarring. Scarring will prevent a pregnancy from implanting properly... I honestly cannot answer for the lining issue. Perhaps this is what he was talking about?

    Hmmm, I have no clue about studies/statistics, but I had a d/c and had 4 pregnancies after; 2 were births. I got preggo with DS1 about 2 years after it. HTH

    I know about the scarring and such... But what he said to her basically imPlied that a d and c could cause infertility due to lining!!
    I am contemPlating calling him and having words.
    She is so so upset!
    She said she was told a d and c was completely safe as well.
    I said no to that.. That's why we sign a disclaimer but to say what he said.
    Disgusted I am.
    People should get their facts straight!!
    Thanks girls.

    That does not sound right.......Your lining is a result of hormones that cause the build up. Yes, a D&C might cause scarring, but that is a whole other issue. If lining is her problem there are lots of things that can be done to fluff it up. Taking estrogen right before Oing, or even drinking Red rasberry leaf tea. This cycle that has me preg with my little princess, my lining was an issue. It was only at 4 mm when it should at least be at 9 I took a double dose of estrogen and drank red rasberry leaf tea like it was my job , and it fluffed up to 11 mm in 2 days, which is excellent. Sounds like this herbalist is a fear monger.......

    Liz,

    Am I understanding you correctly that a herbalist told her that?

    I am so sorry -- first for your friend's loss; next that she had to go through a D & C; that she then gets diagnosed with PCOS and finally that some _______(fill in your favorite expletive) doesn't try to HELP her by offering her a gloom and doom scenario? What the heck???

    I'm absolutely NOT a medical expert... but I would suggest that even IF there was even a grain of truth to what he suggested, what possible 'benefit" would he believe dropping that type of NON-MEDICALLY INFORMED diagnosis would be to her? As an herbalist what is his intent? To sell her stuff for the UNFOUNDED anxiety that he's caused?

    Argh...... sorry. I don't blame you for being upset. I loathe those that do not have a person's personal medical history, full work-up and testing results available handing out diagnosis based upon fear-mongering.

    My suggestion to your friend -- do her best to relax. Read up some more on PCOS. Those likely will offer enough of an explanation that will enable her to formulate what questions and concerns she has with her DOCTOR when she sees him/her. I'm including a few links from here that can help.

    I cannot say with 100% certainty any impact of her D & C has had -- but I CAN share that our site is filled with users such as the one above that did go through it as well and later went on to have other pregnancies.... including those make it to term.

    Encourage her to focus on the PCOS and taking steps to up her fertility chances. We'd love to have her share her journey with us now so we can help offer our support but if not now -- definitely once she is celebrating her BFP!

    ((((((HUGS)))))) Thanks for being such a great friend!

    I agree with the others, Liz, that doesn't sound right to me, either. Sounds like that herbalist might have been confusing the herbs he was taking that day for a certain "weed." ( Sorry, couldn't resist )

    So sorry for your friend having to endure that. Send a hug her way for me.
