Thanks Buster 1! I appreciate it. Got my period earlier this month, and am now CD 10. The good thing is, about 3-4 months after my myomectomy, my cycles have getting much more regular. I used to get AF anywhere from every 40-60 days, now it's a much more manageable 30-34 days.
Fingers and toes crossed for this month for us all. Baby dust for everyone!!
i donít really reply to stuff like this but i felt i had to do it as i was in your position an it was a hard time in my life,
I had a 8cm fibroid well thatís what I thought, I had a operation in may 2011 it was suppose to be laparoscopy which it started out to be but the surgeon notice it was a lot bigger than the scan had shown I lost 2 litres of blood and it turned into a emergency open myomectomy, the worst pain I have ever felt in my life!!!
I have a 4 yr old son and was TTC for 2 yrs before now. I found out I was pregnant in October 2011 which is 6 months after my operation, my doctor told me I could TTC as soon as I was physically able to which we did but yes it took 6 months, which is kind of weird it took 6 months to conceive my 1st child.
So please stay positive ovulation calendar and strips did help me but I think it was more my mind as well.
Simsim, I really appreciate your sharing your story too!! It's so comforting to hear from other women who have gone through this.
I was feeling really good for Dec, but ended up not ovulating this past cycle. The good news is my cycle length continues to be around 30-35 days (rather than the crazy 50-60 days cycles I had pre-surgery). I'm hoping this was a freak anovulatory cycle and that January is lucky for us!
Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and here's to a fruitful 2012
Simsim's story was so great that I forgot to ask the question I came to ask .
Is anyone else experiencing very light periods after surgery? I'm about 7 months post-surgery now, and my periods are so light and short. I'm worried there's nothing for the egg to implant in. I have a follow up doctor's appt w/ my ob/gyn next week. I'm definitely going to ask her about it, but was just curious if anyone else has experienced this too.
Elise, sorry about not ovulating this month. Hope next month is your month. To answer your question my periods were a little lighter but not super light. I think it's a good question to ask at your follow up.
Wishing you a happy holiday season and lots of baby dust for the new year.
Not that I know of. I remember when I made my appointment for the surgery it was a couple of months in advance and I don't recall the doctor asking where I was going to be in my cycle during that time.
