I had my saline ultrasound today, and they found a golf ball sized polyp in my right antral fundus. The procedure sucked - she had to use an evil clamp thingy on my cervix - that and the biopsy hurt like a *****. The u/s tech and my doc were excited to find something though. My ovaries looked fantastic again - I had twice as many follies as they try for, with nice sized dominant ones on both sides. So, we are all very hopeful that getting the polyp out of there will get us pregnant quickly!
The surgery is done by an OB, not my PA, and he can't get me in for a consult until November 12 So, we are to try on our own for the next 2 cycles - she didn't want to waste my money on an IUI with the polyp in there. Hopefully, I won't even need IUI after the polyp is out.
I am excited that we have found something wrong that we can fix. I am disappointed that we have to wait so long, and that we couldn't have found this before we wasted so much time. My 30th birthday is in December, and not at least being pregnant by then is really going to be rough. I'm also terrified of surgery, particularly the anesthesia. Maybe we will get a miracle in the next 2 months, but if not, we are ready to do whatever we have to do.

holy polyp! i'm glad that they found it, it just sucks that they hadnt found it sooner and also that the procedure was painful - like you said the other day its crap that we have to go through such invasive tests to get something most other people do from sex!
I'm with you on the 'we've found something we can fix' but I also understand that waiting for the fix is really frustrating. Is there another OB you could see sooner?
I hope you wont need the surgery though cos you'll get your BFP in the meantime
I hope your not feeling too sore tonight from the procedure
I'm glad they found something (in a way!) but I'm sorry you'll have to wait a while before you can do anything about it.
Thanks Jaidynsmum for the siggy! My fertility blog: Only Infertile

Sorry about the waiting part, but at least there's something you can do in the meantime... I really hope this means good things for you, and just to put things in perspective for you.... My birthday is in December, as well, and I'll be turning 39. I would give my left arm to be 30 again and TTC!
GOOD LUCK, and KUP!
