Well I had an awesome physical therapy appointment today. I go to pt every Tuesday and Thursday to help with the pain from the endo and fm. Plus it's to help with the pain during intercourse. Well, they've been doing alot of internal work trying to get everything to stretch and make it more tolerable. I've seen improvement so far and they even have me using a vaginal dilator at home.
Today I had a different girl doing my session and I'm so glad I did. Don't get me wrong, every lady there I love and they do great work. But it seems like each has their own little bit of wisdom and pieces to the puzzle. While she was doing the internal stretching today, I asked her to examine my cervix to see if she knew where I might be in the ovulation cycle process. She said I was still low and not near O yet. Maybe in a week or two. She then started testing my cervix and she hit some point on them that shot shooting pain up my left side and ovary. Holy cow lol. Well, she noticed my face and was like, "does it hurt?" I was like um Yea! She then said she needs to repeat it to know exactly what's going on. She repeated it and realized that my cervix were spasming and she said that when this happens it causes your tubes to contract and close up. She had to stretch and relax the ligament attached to my uterus and spine. Once she did that, she repeated the cervical examine again and what a world of difference it made. I was amazed needless to say.
Apparently she specializes in fertility as well and she said that without relaxing that ligament, I would have never conceived. My cervix would have kept spasming and my tubes would have continued to block themselves. Isn't that crazy that something minor like that and easily fixable could have been a factor in my problems before! She said she's going to continue to watch it and make sure it stays relaxed. When she reexamined me, my cervix had already moved way up and were in position. She said it seems like my cervix weren't moving at all before and without them moving, they aren't going to produce a thing.
I'm still sore from it all but I feel so much better. I can't believe that was even going on.
No I couldn't do it myself. She had me flip on my side and was like prying into my pelvis to hold my uterus in place while pushing on my back to get it to relax. I could never manage that myself lol. But I go to pt twice a week so I'm going to have them keep checking it. It took them two appointments to get it to relax but hopefully it'll be manageable now.
Yea, it's pretty crazy and I'll tell you what, I feel like my insides are going insane. I can tell everythings moving now lol, which was an issue when I first started. When I first started nothing moved really which apparently it's supposed to. My pt actually told me today everythings moving alot more. We shall see.
