I am hoping someone has some intel for me regarding the benefits of having minor uterine procedures (hysteroscopy, etc.) before transfer. My understanding from both my doctor (based on research he's read) and my acu (based on anecdotal observations of her patients) is that this has a positive effect on implantation. I guess the irritation to the lining kind of stimulates and refreshes it and cleans it out. (I'm more poetically- than scientifically-inclined, so I'm picturing someone changing the sheets and fluffing up the pillows and bedding in my uterus.
) So even though I was disappointed to learn that I needed a procedure before I could try my frosties, I was also happy to be getting this done in the hope that it will increase our chances.
So here's my question: I learned today that I will be having a hysteroscopy on Monday to remove some uterine polyps, and I learned yesterday that my FET is getting rescheduled to late September or early October. (I'm not even going to try to relay the frustrating and complicated logistics that have led to the current schedule.) So will my hysteroscopy be near enough to my transfer to have the benefits mentioned above? Originally, I was thinking the procedure would be 2 or 3 weeks before the transfer, but now it might be upwards of 8 weeks before. I am afraid 8 weeks is long enough for my body to reintroduce all kinds of junk into my uterus. (as I write that, I see clearly that I need to start some positive visualizations about my body.
) Or am I just looking for things to worry about, and having this 8 weeks before my transfer is just as good? Does this difference in timing matter? Will it still benefit my implantation odds?
Before I start trying to reach my doctor over the weekend to ask him this, I thought I'd toss the question out to you wise ladies. I'm grateful for any insights you have.
