Hi everyone, sorry I've been MIA for a while...I had a great holiday but have been a little stressed and almost a little depressed since my Dec 8 appt.
I had a pelvic u/s in Oct, and this appt was a follow up from that. Basically, my reproductive system is a bit of a mess right now. There's a little endo cyst on the right ovary, a fibroid in my uterus (which apparently is now tilted????) and a "mass" on or near my left ovary.
What the heck...?! When I was pg with Evie none of these things were mentioned...so I assumed they didn't exist. So did they ALL happen after Evie was born...??
Plus my Day 2 TSH/FSH is now 15 (it was 10 back in May). Basically, it's getting harder for me to get pg.
So, my fertility is decreasing, I have a mass of who-knows-what, and then I got another blow from DH, who was *really* not into IVF. He said he was ok with one child, since he was an only child himself. Of course, I am totally NOT OK with this, I want at least one more child so that Evie has a sibling...and frankly, b/c I want to be pg and care for a baby again before I get too old.
So the past 4-6 wks have totally sucked. I was really unhappy and frightened.
Anyways, DH and I went to see the dr today after I had another pelvice u/s on Jan 5. Everything is still as is, but the dr said that based on what he saw, it's not likely to be cancer, so I was VERY relieved to hear this. However, b/c the "mass" (which he believes is an endo cyst as well) is fairly large, they want it dealt with before proceeding with any fertility procedures. He has booked me a pelvic MRI for Feb 1, and then I need to see my GYN to determine how best to deal with the "mass", possibly require surgery to remove it.
So, I will have to wait a bit - a couple or so months?? - before we can proceed with IVF.
And after many discussions, with DH - he did finally come around and say ok with IVF.
I am not entirely happy with this delay and my stupid reproductive issues...but at least we are getting somewhere finally.
