I went in at 8am today and they looked around and the suspicious thing they saw yesterday was cyst about the size of a grape on my right ovary. They removed the cyst and did a d&c of the uterus to remove any pregnancy cells. Doctor said it all went well and we should be able to try again in a that is nice to know!

I feel as if I have been doing stomach crunches for hours and days but my DH is taking care of me and I have good drugs so I can stay in bed. I go back for follow up next Friday so this should be behind us now. He said my levels should immediately drop and I have been bleeding today so hopefully he's right.

Thank you all for your support!

I'm sorry you had to have surgery, but I'm glad it went well and that they could do the d&c as well.

When I had my d&c (before DD) it was emotionally hard to let go of that pg, but physically I felt so much better afterwards and the recovery was pretty quick (though I didn't have a lap as well).

I'm glad that you'll be able to try again so quickly!

I'm glad you have some resolution, a great husband and good drugs! It is exciting that you can try again so soon.

My best wishes for a speedy and comfortable recovery.

After too many failed natural cycles to mention, discover that previously clear tubes have become blocked after surgery to remove fibroids (however, no more fibroids). Decent FSH for 40 year old
