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.

I'm so sorry that you have a polyp, but like you said, I'm glad that it was found and hopefully when removed you will get your sticky BFP! F/X'd that you'll get the miracle BFP before then, but if not, 2013 will be your year! GL and KUP!

Yikes! Sorry you have to wait so long for the surgery. Hopefully it does the trick though and you get a BFP directly after if not before.

Thanks Bokkechick for my wonderful siggy!

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 sorry you have to wait until November for the surgery. I hope that the time flies, and that your BFP follows soon after!
