On Thursday I am going to the Doc's to get the official feedback on the HSG.
The consultant told me at the time the tubes seemed fine but there was a slight irregularity. He told me this as I sat up directly after the x-rays, a blue robe covering what little dignity I had managed to maintain, I had just had two different blokes and four different tubes up 'there', radioactive liquid was seeping out of me. I've regretted it ever since but I bundled myself out of the room as quickly as was possible and didn't ask for any more details. I have no idea what this might be, he told me it was nothing to loose sleep over but what does that mean? So Thursday I should get some answers.
But I will also have some questions. And I would really appreciate help from the blogosphere.
I have had regular periods (cycle between 30 - 32 days) for about six months and all recent tests have shown that the polycestic ovaries I was diagnosed with about 5 years ago (before all this ttc malarky started) has disappeared.
However, my last cycle was a staggering 83 days and that only came to an end because I was prescribed provera to enable me to have a period and then have the HSG. It is day 36 of the current cycle and there are no warning signs that suggest I'm about to start my period any day soon.
So this is where I really really need help from people who have been through this before.
What should I ask my doctor for?
I can throw a few drug names into the mix like clomid. But does anyone know if this stimulates ovulation and therefore will also help regulate my cycles or should I be looking at trying something else?
When I took provera it was made very clear that I shouldn't take it if there was a chance that I was pregnant, so I can't see how that is compatible with trying to conceive.
I know the internet has become a doctor's nemesis with people self-diagnosing and then not understanding why the doctor thinks that they just have a cold rather than a terminal tropical disease that normally affects a small tribe of indigenous Amazonians. So I will listen to what she says and take her advice as well but I would like to go in with some ideas of what to ask for and what she is likely to suggest.
Thank you in advance for any advice.
