I post and roam a few of the boards but mostly post on Parenting. I have been trying for DC#2 for 2 years. I conceived DD very easily and got a bit of the run around from the OB which is why is has taken me so long to get to the RE.
Basically I had a HUGE dermoid (teratoma with hair, teeth...yuck) Ovarian cycst that was removed during my c-section with DD. It ruptured inside when they were operating and the RE feels this is the source of all my trouble and I am very discouraged.
The cyst destroyed my left ovary (OB who delived DD NEVER said this was a possible outcome, he said I should have no issues after the surgery) and the liquid caused scarring that has attached the front of my uterus to my abdominal wall and causing my cervix to be extreemly out of position.
RE thinks the sperm can not reach to opening to my cervix since it is in a fixed position it can not 'bathe' in the seman and have the sperm get where they need to go. I ovulate regularly and my RE thinks the best course of action is unmedicated IUI. Good and bad news there too. Good news in no meds (only spot of good news, actually) Since my organs are so damaged and out of position he is not certain of 3 things. 1. He isnt sure he has instruments that can fit my anatomy therefore IUI would not work. 2. That the scarring on my uterus makes me high risk. He thinks if I get PG I could carry just fine but the delivery is risky.I will definitley need another c-section but he thinks I could loose my uterus. 3.If IUI doent work there is no alternate course of treatment he would recommend.
Part of me says there are miracles everyday and there is no reason I can't be one of those miracles. The other part of me thinks it is never going to happen. I want another baby but I think there is a part of me not letting me want it too much because somewhere deep inside me I know that I cant have anymore.
I guess I just needed to get this out and I would LOVE to hear anyone with a sucess story. Good luck to us all!
