Hi Lilly, thanks for the info.. just as i thought. i wished i've done the BCP route then. I'm also 30 yo so it's too late for that now that I'm actively TTC. Anyway, my cycles used to range from 35-50 days before so maybe I also did preserved some eggs there .
ANNE- Pretty sure it was just a light bleed from your surgery. I had the same light bleed for 3 days after my lap and then suddenly it got VERY HEAVY. My period wasn't due for a couple more days and at first I was confused that maybe it was just from the surgery. However, if I count the heavy bleed as a period than today would be CD 13. So out of curiosity I did an OPK and I just got a positive!! Right on time! SO I guess my period just came a couple days earlier. Do you use opks?
YOU GUYS, TMI but I have been feeling extra frisky for the past 3 days even tho I am still a little tender from the surgery. I have been with my DH for over 6 years so normally BDing seems like kind of a chore since we have been trying for over a year now. It is just amazing that after the surgery my body KNEW before I did that I should be BDing. I am so worried that by waiting to try we are losing time and my one good tube is going to close up before we even get a chance. I know it is for the best we wait because of the fibroid being removed...but it is so frustrating!
Thanks lilly for the reply. Even I think its just a light bleed. I used to use opks but that was last year, stopped using them since I can normally track my ovulation from cm and ov pains. As far as the tubes blocking them up again is concerned- I have just put that thing out of my mind The more I think about it,the more I shall stress. When are you going to get that fibroid out? I don't know much but is a fibroid like a cyst? And is it not ok to TTC with a fibroid?
Yes, cramps have been steady everyday, they woke me up out of a dead sleep on Thursday too! my cycle is anywhere from 23 days to 30 (depending on when I ovulate). I also have a short Luteal Phase which concerns me. MY OGBYN gave me progesterone pills to take to regulate, but it states not to take them if you are pregnant or trying so I stopped taking them.
In reading my surgical report again, I noticed that he also removed two hemorrgatic cysts on both tubes. That must be where he said the blood was from. A Hemorragtic cyst bleeds into itself which is why I did not get diagnosed with endo. It also explains pain during intercourse and regular pelvic pain (which seems to be gone now). He then used an aragon beam to cut holes in the end of my tubes which left them patent by the end of surgery. I'm dying to know the results of your surgery ladies! We should compare surgical reports (you just need to call and request it).I wanna know how the tubes were opened?
I'm staying positive about the cramps. But I'm so used to AF coming to get me that I don't want to get my hopes up. Day 4 of cramps, slight, but cramps. No tender breasts. 9DPO....I will test on Tuesday if AF does not come. Every time I test, I get her the same day..weird..
LL- I think it's wonderful that your body knows what needs to be done- BD as much as possible once you heal. Keep that libido
Anne- Bleeding is normal. I bled lightly 4 days after my lap, it's normal. Thats why you usually wake up with a huge diaper on in the recovery room! They do some major stuff in there. You can always call your Dr. to confirm, mine said it could last a few days or a few weeks. He did say it should not mess with your menses cycle. But, they are not always right. Mine was right on time after my lap. I chart using Fertility Friend and its always pin point my fertile days and when AF comes, luteal phase, etc. I love it. I put in my temps, my fertility monitor readings (OPK), and CM and it does the rest.
Stored eggs...lol...sorry for the confusion. My gf got off BC and got prego right away without trying. Her OBGYN told her it's common for women. I'm turning 35 in October so it's too late for me. I've never been on BC in my life nor have I ever had a scare of a BFP.
I have done research and a friend of mine is doing castor oil packs, maybe you should try that...I've thought about it but it appears it's more for cysts, fibroids, etc. Not high rates of unblocking tubes at distal end, by the uterus it has shown success. It can't hurt to try a little old fashion Chinese Medicine...lol
A fibroid should be removed, IMO. My cousin had one, got it removed, went to Mexico and 2 shots of tequila later was pregnant with her first son.
Hey girls just a little clarification...when I went to get my tubes fixed they found a fibroid on my uterus and a cyst on my ovary - both were removed at the time of my lap and that is why we have to wait 6 weeks to ttc because of the stitches on my uterus where the fibroid once was.
KC- like you I had pelvic pain with intercourse. For me it was probably the fibroid. I feel great now!!!
Hi LC! Good luck on your lap! Please let us know how it went. Try not to worry, it's an easy surgery (fast recovery) and you will likely have all your issues fixed and be on your way to achieveing a BFP soon
As for me, that *itch AF got me last night so we're gonna have to just keep trying. This will make 3 cycles since my lap and if it doesn't happen, I'm supposed to get another HSG to confirm my tubes closed back up. I am meeting my new RE on May 4th so hopefully she will help guide me to Plan B.
Today, I have also found out about 4 people that are pregnant. That brings the currernt number to 15. It has to get easier, right?
I mean, I'm happy for them, but I'm also sad for myself and my DH, he is not taking it very well. I can't give him a family and that makes me very sad
KC....So sorry AF got you. I know how it feels to feel bad about not being able to give your husband a baby and all your friends and women much older than you getting pregnant without effort. For the most part I try and stay strong and focus on our "plan" or to have one even if it changes constantly. I know it is out of my control, but having a plan seems to keep me focused. Like, even if the surgery wasn't successful and one and only tube is closed again, I know that in 4 months we will be moving on to ivf.
Keep moving forward sister like you are....you are doing everything exactly as you should. It will all work out in the end. I have no doubt we will get our babies!
Thanks girls. I just hate the wait. Sigh sigh. I've looked at potential options but it doesn't seem that my clinic does them.
I wasn't shocked when I had my hsg because I have never been pregnant since trying and ESP since dh is ok.
I have a lot of pain issues that include hip upper thigh and bowel which is all cyclical. If it isn't endo I'll be going for some other tests because the chronic pain is ridiculous.
