I got phone called from ALen Beer Centre yesterday saying they haven't received few blood work and the biospy. Coincidently, the nurse here called and left message. I called back today. I was spechles to hear her saying that I have to do the biospy again. I think I heard the one I did split during the shipping. It was so painful, I am scared also if it creates scar to my uterus. What do I do? Why this thing is so hard for me?? I worry more about the scar afterward, any knowledge on that please.
Are you referring to an endometrial biopsy? I have read on the under 40 board that some RE's actually think apart from the diagnostic info they get some ladies have noted increased pregnancy rates after the procedure. My bfp last spring was the month after an endometrial biopsy. I have had two and I understand what yo are saying they can be very uncomfortable. Good luck to you.
The second link is just an abstract, but it's really all you need. On another IVF forum I read, a woman actually contacted the researchers who forwarded her the papers, which she posted to the forum, but it requires membership.
The downside is, yeah, it hurts like an SOB, which you knew.
All the ladies I've actually read on lists who had it said it was not pleasant, but it may be one of those YMMV things. I know that some women here have said that their saline hysterosonograms were very painful experiences, and mine were, well, nothing I'd do for fun, but more uncomfortable than painful. And I have an embarrassingly low pain threshold. GL, Bharani! Maggie (in VA)
That's an interesting thetis - that the actually act of doing the biopsy and the uterus' subsequent effort to heal itself from the minor injury can improve implantation rates - regardless of what the biopsy's findings were and if the protocol was changed.
I only skimmed it but it seems to imply that the follow up cycles were done soon after the biopsy. On my case I did the biopsy in November and just did a transfer this week. Hopefully i can still enjoy the residual effects of healing even bough that length of time has transpired. Also we changed my protocol to one with a slower introduction of progesterone using suppositories only and no PIO shots, but my P2 and E2 check showed lower progesterone levels than the clinic would like so now I've added crinone to the prometrium suppositories.
