I know I don't come here a lot anymore. I don't really have a lot to talk about TTC related as DH and I are really back to JLIH and I don't really follow TTC much anymore. It's sad really but oh well, what can you do? DH and I aren't on the same page right now and we are starting couples therapy in January (was supposed to be next week but with holidays we had to re-schedule). We aren't divorcing or separating or anything like that, but we do need to work on some of our communication issues and DH has some issues he won't go to therapy alone to figure out so I'm hoping this will help him open up better.
Anyway, we saw our RE after my LAP/HSG in October and this is what he found while he was "in there":
-The cyst on my left ovary is gone now, it turns out it was a "chocolate cyst" (blood filled/endometrioma) and not the dermoid cyst the other clinic thought it was. He drained it and removed the lining so it shouldn't grow back.
-I did have a significant subseptate uterus (heart shaped). He removed the septum and it looks MUCH better now he said. The septum was taking up a lot of space and embryos don't implant to septums easily which could have been our issue.
-I had a polyp that was blocking the entrance to my right tube. He removed the polyp and the dye test was successful on both tubes now. Yay!
-I do have endo. He didn't give me a "stage" but with the endo affecting my ovary and with adhesions, I believe that's stage 3? But then again, some of it was burned off last year in my other lap so he couldn't say for sure how bad it really is. He burned off any areas he saw though and removed any adhesions he saw.
So, we are to try on our own until April and then go back for some more aggresive options such as Femera and maybe some more IUI (since it did work once). This RE strongly believes we will be pregnant by they end of 2013 and he is determined to make it happen for us. I'm really happy with him as well and so is DH.
On a side note, the septum could also have been causing heavier than normal AF for me (more surface space on the inside of the uterus for tissue to grow on and thus shed). I just finished my third AF since the surgery and it was INSANELY light! Like, crazy light to the point I was wondering if I even had AF! I usually have flooding and use plus tampons with backup overnight pads. I didn't have any leaking this time at all, very few cramps, and only 3 days of bleeding versus my usual 5-6 of bleeding plus 2-3 of spotting. It was nuts! I hope it stays like this forever now!
