HSG was a success!!!!

Yesterday, I had a procedure done in my obgyn's office (ummm, how about the worst pain EVER!!!!) that enabled me to attempt to have the HSG test done again.

Today, the HSG only took 3 minutes versus the 3 attempted hours last time. Luckily, they can tell you your results immediately, and my fallopian tubes are CLEAR!

When walking down the street of infertility, one must count their blessings as they come!

However, after my doctor reviewed the x-rays, he says he wonders if I have a fibroid. Evidently, my uterus is not the "normal" shape, and he is wondering if I was just born this way or if a fibroid is pressing down on it. I have no idea what a fibroid even is?!?!!!?!? So, here we go again...

Just thought I'd update you because I've had several readers email me about an update and also emailing such sweet notes of support. Thank you! They make me feel so much better knowing other people go through these same things, and the emails that just say you're praying for us totally make my day. You have NO idea. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! ;)

If it is a fibroid, it's okay. I had one removed laproscopically (sp?) back in 2008. The important thing is to find a specialist. Depending on the size it may need to be removed, otherwise it could possibly shrink on it's own. There are different types, mine was posterior on the back of my uterus. Hang in there, mine grew pretty large and had to be removed. Have you had a MRI done yet?

HSG's are NOT fun at all. Been there. Done that, and hope I never have to do it again! Fibroid? Yes, those are easy to remove with a lap. Your Dr. should be able to refer you to a specialist. You'll get through this, this is just a simple step.

Hang in there sugar.

I have several fibroids and they are generally not problematic but sometimes doctors like to remove them to help with fertility.

You should be fine!

I'm glad you have a piece of good news. Maybe if you do have a fibroid it could be removed and it might help with fertility? I'll be praying!
