I felt the same when I began to deal with my vaginismus; looking at all of the information at once was disheartening. Try to just focus on the very next step. I hope the saline ultrasound is painless for you, and I hope your solution is found to be a quick and easy one.

    Haha that's what I said when she told me about the ultrasound. Basically this is what it is:

    A standard ultrasound uses sound waves to image the shape of the uterus and other pelvic organs. A SIS is an ultrasound that goes one step further by using sterile water to distend the uterine cavity to obtain more accurate information about fibroids, polyps, or the lining of the uterus.

    As for fibroids and polyps......

    A fibroid is a benign tumor of muscular and fibrous tissues, typically developing in the wall of the uterus.

    A polyp is a small growth, typically benign and with a stalk, protruding from a mucous membrane.

    I think the ultrasound should be painless based on what I've read, but it sounds kind of weird so I wanted to be sure haha. :/

    Hopefully I don't have either, but if I do, then I hope they're all that are causing my issues and can be removed....

    I'm so sorry to hear this! That's very very scary. Hope she recovers quickly and everything is alright in utero.

    Rollo please get better soon!!!

    Good luck with the tests poppy528 and nowakasia, I hope you get some answers.
    Alzora, parvovirus causes fifth disease, no problem for an adult, but in utero it can cause severe anemia in the baby, we now have to wait 6 months to see if the baby survives the pregnancy and delivery. Once the baby is born it may need a bloodtransfusion, but other than that no complications are expected if the baby makes it that far.
