I've been here before off and on, mostly lurking, but I want to be more serious about participating now so I thought I should do another intro.
I've been basically TTC for three years now, with some off and on. At first, it seemed like there was no reason for me to have trouble conceiving (started at 31, I'm 34 now) and tests all came back fine, but no BFP. Then last year, the doctor saw masses in my uterus. Turns out it was fibroids--so I had surgery to remove them a few months ago. The surgeon said they were surpisingly large, one over a centimeter, so probably the reason for my trouble.
Now, three months later, I just had another ultrasound which showed two more fibroids, these ones smaller. The surgeon isn't sure if she missed them before or if new ones have grown already. She's consulting another doctor to see if we should try surgery again or if I should just continue trying.
I'm getting frustrated because it took over a year with the doctors just to find this problem and get the first surgery, and now it didn't even fix the problem. I also don't know what to do from here. Surgery again might increase chances, but it's likely that fibroids will continue to grow. I don't have any symptoms besides IF so I didn't know until the ultrasound.
I don't know anyone else with experience with fibroids and I just feel very alone in this. Does anyone else have experience with them?
