Yep, I had a hysteroscopic procedure so they could get a better picture of how many fibroids I had, and what size they were. General anesthesia was the scariest part — I had no pain afterward. Really could have gone back to work the same day, if it hadn’t been for the lingering effects of being put under.

Their findings convinced them that I had an intrauterine fibroid that would require the big surgery to remove (abdominal myomectomy). That was a far more serious surgery and a much harder recovery, but I don’t regret it at all – it improved the quality of my life tremendously. No downside, really!

MrsBananas:  I had it done and while they were there the scraped uterine walls to make heavy periods better. It wasn’t a hard recovery at all, but I puked a lot due to the anesthesia (tmi) and ended up back at the hospital for fluids. Other than that, it was not bad at all. And it made such a difference with my period. So worth it!

I also don’t like transvaginal ultrasounds, they hurt. Maybe because my uterus is titled,,IDK, but when people,say they are painless, I disagree! 

I hope you feel better soon!

MrsBananas:  I had additional things they had to do, so maybe that’s why? Lots of fibroids and cysts. Didn’t mean to scare you!

MrsBananas: i’m not familiar with the hysterocopy but i do have a 7x7cm fibroid sitting outsite my uterus, at least that was the measurement, a little over a year ago.  i had the HSG and sonohistogram as part of RE testing and then an MRI to confirm that the fibroid was just sitting there and not pushing on anything. 

about 6 months or so before TTC, my gyn found the fibroid at a routine gyn exam,  she sent me to a specialist who did not recommend a myanectomy (sp).  i feel at this point, i could have had the surgery, and the 6 month recovery from it and still be at the same place. 

good luck and keep us updated.

I’m having a hysteroscopy in December (hopefully) for polyp removal, not excited about the nuvaring prior. Would prefer a different BC for sure. But hoping the procedure brings us both a sticky baby. Good luck!

MrsBananas:  The polyp was found during a SIS and the nuvaring is to thin the uterine lining prior to the hysteroscopy. They also prescribed Misoprostol to be taken the night before to soften the cervix for easier insertion of the hysteroscope. I will also have to have an HCG test 2-3 days prior (after 45 cycles of actively TTC it’s doubtful I will get a miracle pregnancy by being on BC – haha!)

Is there a nurses line you could call to ask questions?
