sorry, kinda long..
My RE wants me to have a hysteroscopy before IVF #2. So, I called today with the start of my cycle to schedule a hysteroscopy for next week. My nurse caught me by surprise, because she wanted me to also come in for baseline testing tomorrow and start bcp this week. I wasn't planning on this being my IVF cycle... I didn't even think that was an option, so for weeks I have been planning on getting the hysteroscopy out of the way this month, and then IVF in May or June. Plus, my RE does not want me taking lupron this time, since I didn't have a great response with IVF #1, so I didn't think BCP would be good for me either. When I expressed all of this to the nurse, she said I didn't have to do BCP, and I could wait until after my next period to start IVF, but it could be 4-6 weeks after the surgery before I got my period. I also just got a bad feeling that she thought I was being stupid.
I was just caught off guard, because it wasn't in my plans to start IVF this month. I always feel like I have everything figured out, and then they catch me off guard and I get overwhelmed. So, I have a few questions:
1) Does anybody know if there is any advantage to starting IVF in the same cycle as a hysteroscopy?
2) Was your period delayed after hysteroscopy (assuming you did not go straight into IVF)?
3) How did you feel after hysteroscopy? My nurse is advising me to take Monday (day of procedure) and Tuesday off work. But everything I read makes it sound like there is little to no recovery time necessary. I get stressed out about what my boss is thinking with all of these "medical procedures."
