Interesting Results

Well my appointment with Dr. Reshef has been scheduled for October 5th. I had to get my medical charts from my current OB/GYN and found some interesting information in there that was never passed along to me. During my HSG which was in 09/08 the comments read “there does appear to be spillage from both fallopian tubes. There is definite spillage from the right. There may be some loculations present around distal fallopian tubes or ovaries bilaterally suggesting some scarring or adhesions.” Then I proceed and read my results from my first round of Clomid Day 10 ultrasound. The comments read “There are multiple right and left ovarian cysts. Largest on right measures approximately 2 cm in diameter and largest on the left measures 1.7cm.” UM HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was NEVER told any of this. Here is something I pulled off Dr. Reshef’s website.

What are the causes of infertility?

Approximately 30-40% of infertility is due to male factors; 50% percent is due to female factors; and 10-20% is due to either combined male and female factors or unexplained infertility. In the female, the combination of endometriosis, tubal disease, or adhesions (scarring), collectively known as the "peritoneal factor", is the most common cause. Problems with ovulation is the second most common cause. Cervical mucus abnormality is the third most common cause.

I can’t wait now to go see the specialist. I’m curious to see if he thinks these could be a factor. I mean if it’s scar tissue getting in the way it’s as simple as a laproscopy. I might have to go give my OB/GYN an ear full. I’m waiting to see what Dr. Reshef says about it first lol. It really may be nothing, but still I feel like as a patient I have the right to know these results. Not just be told everything looks fine. Oh well just glad to be going forward.
