Hi Ladies,

I've been so wrapped up on my days to O, I completly forgot that I have a growth on my Thyroid and I'm having a biopsy done on 4/15 which is my O date. Do you think its going to interfere with my O day. We have been BD'ng and plan on BD'ng everyday till 4/17.

Let me know what you think...

talk to your doctor about it... depends on the procedure.

I would think not though.

Hi there,

I have had three Fine Needle Biopsies done on my thyroid and surrounding glands. What kind are you having? If they do the same with you as with me, it should not effect O'ing except the possible stress. I had a little bit of local anesthesia and it was done with a needle. Kinda like a reverse shot. It was quick and fairly painless.

Hi,

I believe its the same one done in the Dr's office, they say i have a growth on my thyroid and they would like to test it. Do you think the anesthia will affect it? I really hope not this may be the last time in a long time ttc. My BF is going over seas to Kuwait...

Wow, it sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now. If the biopsy is scheduled during a regualr Dr appointment they are probably just doing a FNB, which is what I had.

The local anesthesia will not effect your cycle. It is the same thing you get at the dentist, basically.

Good Luck!

Hey Chinky-

Can you tell me more about your Thyroid? The only reason I am asking is because I have a lump there also.

I had a tumor on my thyroid a little over two years ago and when they discovered it they had me go back on B/C until it was removed. Hey I want to know why you were so lucky, when they did my fine needle biopsy I had no anast. (not sure of sp) I had to watch and feel the whole thing. I had to have my thyroid removed. Then I had to wait three months to regulate my body to the Synthroid meds before I could ttc again. Does your thyroid Dr. know that your TTC?

Best of luck.
