TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

OMG, they CLAMPED my CERVIX!

Posted by   + Show Post

LOL! I just got back from my RE. I got a follicular ultrasound (mostly normal for me) and a uterine sounding.

a uterine sounding sounds all nice and normal, right?

WRONG.

They put a speculum inside of me (i'm still bleeding, on my second cycle day) then CLAMPED MY CERVIX OPEN, and put a long plastic rod in there and felt all around to see how my uterus is and if it tilts. (it tilts slightly to the left haha)

so then, I got stabbed with a needle to take my blood, which I will need to repeat friday, sunday, tuesday, wednesday etc. I've also got to do a urine sample, which isn't bad at all.

Not only that, starting tomorrow, I will be injected 3 times a day, once in my ass, which my lovely wife gets to do.

Ah, the things we do for babies.

Bring on the IVF!

Lol so you have all the hormonal stuff then??? I just have a cyst and like a crap ton of follicles on both ovaries


Quoting TurtleSquish:

I have PCOS too! But my ovaries aren't poly cystic lol

Quoting Seximama23:

Heck yeah I hear ya. I have polycystic ovaries and I think my uterus tilts back because my cervix sits close to.the front





Quoting TurtleSquish:

yes lol! I got pissed when I got back hair once.

my doc prescribed me spirnolactone and it took care of it. Even though I've been off of it, it hasn't grown back
