Hi everyone. My name is Amy. My husband and I have been married for 11 years. We have always wanted our own child but have not been able to get pregnant. So I went and had blood work done and was told i had pcos. I was put on chlomide and stayed on that for a whole year. When that didn’t work I was told it was time to see a specialist. At that time we were ready to give up but when my sister n law had her little boy i think it gave my husband the baby blues. So after feeling that my doctor didn’t do everything she possibly could I switch to a different doctor. While the nurse took all my information down and asked a million questions that was done previously i was right. This appointment was 2 weeks ago. In that one appointment I had blood drawn an ultrasound done and orders to have my husband do a semen analysis. In the ultrasound it showed that i either had a septum, arcuate, or Bicoruate uterus. So after trying all of this i guess my questions is has anyone on here had this same thing and if so could you please share your story with me. I have read lots of information on this but would love to hear from someone who has gone through this. Any information would be grateful:).sblvdParticipantMay 16, 2013 at 6:05 pmPost count: 23
Hi Amy, welcome to the site. I’m sorry I don’t have any experience with this but wanted to reach out and say hello. IF, whatever the cause is so very frustrating. What options did your Dr. give you?BbloveMemberMay 16, 2013 at 6:05 pmPost count: 6
I just had my septum removed last year. It was an outpatient procedure. It’s a 6 week recovery, which was not that bad. They said by removing it, it makes more space for baby and decreases chance of a miscarriage. Is removing yours an option? If you wanted to check it out, it’s called a hysteroscopy and d&c. They need to accurately diagnose you first because the 3 options they gave you have very different outcomes. If it’s just bicoruate (heart shaped) most women can carry to term as long as it’s not multiples. Since you have never had a MC the shape of your uterus should not affect your actual ability to get pregnant. Have they checked your tubes? There could be a blockage. You definitely have to be your own advocate when it comes to getting results. Good luck!AmyLynnParticipantMay 17, 2013 at 6:05 pmPost count: 3
I went Thursday to get results of the test they have done so far. I’ve know for a few years that I have pcos. My insalin level was high so I was put on metphormon. Don’t know how to spell the word but the male hormone women have that level was high so I medicine for for that. My cholesterol wasn’t horrible but border line so he wants me to take fish oil to help it. Because if the pcos he gave birth contol to get my cycles normal again. After 3 months i have to go do the blood work to see if my levels has come down. If they have he’s going to take me off and wants us to try to get pregnant on our own. Also my husband mobility was below average. We have a lot absinthe us but the dr seems to be hopeful. I did do a lot of research before i went back for this appointment and I did ask him about the surgery but he wants to see if we can get pregnant and carry full term first. If not then he’ll do the surgery. He left that option to me and I agreed. Thanks again for sharing your story. I don’t have all the answers just yet because we are stll at the beginning but its more than what I learned in the many years I was with my other doctor!
