Here’s the update. 4egfs retrieved. One looked good, one not great, one bad, one disintegrated. Froze the first 3 because DH was too stressed to give a sample. I almost lost my mind, I know he tried but I’m so exhausted. Starting meds soon to maintain lining so we can do another Receptiva test. Also planning on doing PRP in March and then gearing up for round 6

I didn’t see a March board yet so thought I would post here. Some of you may know my 3rd iui attempt was a bust last month. My RE called me to let me know I was up for IVF but he wanted to ensure that the mass they saw previously had passed. So I did another US and I got the call today that they confirmed it to be a fibroid on my cervix. Apparently it needs to be surgically removed before proceeding with any other fertility treatments. 

I was so in shock I just agreed to surgery and have my consent appointment in 3 weeks. Now I have all the questions. Has anyone here had this done? How did it go?  Was it painful? Feeling super defeated as this pushes us back a year for our IVF.

@mrsnitti17:  I’m so sorry you’re facing surgery. I had fibroids in my uterus so I can’t speak about a cervical fibroid but the recovery was not too bad after a few days. I was working from home after a week. I was back to full time in the office. I had to also put off having kids for 9 months after the surgery. I have a feeling the cervical surgery won’t be as bad as what I went through, which was a full robotic myomectomy so I have 4 scars on my abdomen and another scar further down that’s only a little smaller than a C-section scar. I hope your doctor can give you some info about what the procedure and recovery will entail.

As a final update, I met with my RE and we’re moving forward with the full surgery in about 6 weeks to remove the polyp and the adenoma. He also thinks that one of my previous fibroid moved one of my tubes so it no longer lines up with the ovary. If that’s the case, IVF will be our only option and we’re not going to pursue that. If he thinks we can do IUI three months after the surgery, we will do a few of those but we’re not super optimistic. I just want the surgery to avoid future health issues, which it seems will happen with this condition, and I’m willing to try IUIs but I’m not willing to spend another $17K on IVF when we could put that money towards adoption. We are developing a plan to get ready for adoption while I recover from surgery so that we can hopefully adopt within the next year or so.

@mrsnitti17:  I’m sorry that sounds awful. Are you able to do retrievals during this time or do you have enough normals. Otherwise I might embryo bank if it’s going to really take year. This sucks Bee.

@jen9999:  unfortunatly not, they dont want me on any hormones at the moment. Thankfully I have  good afc so waiting a year wont hurt, it just really really sucks.

@mrsnitti17:  the hysteroscopy should have a quicker recovery time. I’m also starting birth control pills as soon as my period shows up since they want a thin lining when they do the surgery.
