Well . . .my uterus looks just fine. Looks like I’m healed up from the surgery – the “stripe” looked just lovely. I still have a posterior fibroid, but I don’t think that was the one the RE messed with this summer since the adenomyoma was just above the cesarean scar.
I have Polycystic Ovarian Sydrome (PCOS). My OB just discovered it today via ultrasound – the “string of pearls” were clear as day. I don’t know how much of an affect that has on RPL. GETTING pregnant hasn’t been my issue, and it seems to me that most women who have PCOS and suffer from infertility are having trouble conceiving. Maybe that’s inaccurate.
My appointment was very interesting. My OB doesn’t believe in the luteal phase defect. That’s not to say that he’s antagonistic – he’s more than willing to treat with HCG and progesterone injections. What I learned today is that some reproductive endocrinologists don’t believe that the luteal phase has anything to do with conception issues. It’s the 1st half of the cycle that governs cycle length. Evidently, if you ovulate then you will have a sufficient luteal phase. REs that ascribe to this philosophy are more likely to treat with ovulation triggers like clomid, especially with PCOS.
That’s about all I have to say right now. Just wanted to give the faithful an update and those of you who struggle with faith a bit of information, hope, and comfort. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
