I had my GYN appointment today.....thank GOD the Hubby attended with me. I was so eternally grateful for his support! His first time at the GYNO and he was looking around for other men...and sighed a breathe of relief when he saw one!
I guess we're making progress- at least I got some answers today. The doc did an internal exam- I have a tilted uterus. She went ahead and did preliminary blood work to "rule out" anything major preventing pregnancy- including thyroid, etc. That made me really happy- thanks to "anonymous" from a few posts ago- I feel better already- why not rule out things?
I waited over an hour for my ultrasound. I knew something was wrong from the minute the tech sat down. She said- "have you ever been told that you have fibroids?" I simply replied "no...what are fibroids." She says to me- "they are tiny tumors, they are usually benign and you have 2 of them." Thanks Ultrasound Tech- she had no further info to give me...
She turned her little computer screen away from me and started typing- clearly not wanting me to see. We were supposed to leave immediately after the ultrasound because we had been there for over 3 hours...and she says "please wait here- I need to get the doctor."
Doctor comes in- I do indeed have 2 Fibroids- apparently something not to worry about...but something to monitor. They were benign. In addition- the aching pain on the right side of my abdomen is IN FACT a cyst. Thanks for hating me body!
So...the weird period I had last week- should NOT be counted as a period. She thinks it was bleeding caused by the cyst on my ovary. She thinks I actually ovulated last week...and not the week before as I thought...and I should get my period in 7-10 days. She said there is a small chance that I could still be pregnant...but would be too early to tell. Given my sex life over the past week...hardly possible :)
I feel better now that I have a few answers. She told me that there is absolutely NOTHING that I should be worried about regarding my fertility as of now. Everything found today should not have a direct effect- but I'm holding my breath until all the tests come back. Should know more information by Friday.
I have a follow up ultra sound towards the end of February already scheduled- at least we can keep the discussion going.
