I don't know if this post belongs here or in infertility, but here goes. I'd sure appreciate any insights or advice. In July prior to finding out I was pregnant, I had an HSG, where they fill your uterus with dye and look at it under an xray. The results of that were that I possibly had either a bicornate uterus (heart-shaped uterus) or a septate uterus (weird skin divider down the middle of the uterus that can cause miscarriage). I was scheduled for an MRI later that month, but literally the day I was to have my MRI, I had a positive pregnancy test. Anyway, after my miscarriage in late August, I rescheduled again for the MRI. I hadn't gotten the results back, and with everything else going on emotionally I guess I just put it out of my mind. Anyway, I woke up this morning feeling really quite good. I got up early, took my dog for a walk, and on the way to work I realized for the first time I was feeling ready and cautiously excited to try again. About an hour later, I got a call from my doctor. He had the results of the MRI, and apparently I do have a septate uterus, as well as what looks like scarring in my uterine cavity. This is what is so strange and upsetting. There is no reason for there to be scarring. I've never had an abortion or a D&C, no medical history to indicate scarring, never had a child. So, apparently I'll have to have surgery to remove the septate, which is a major time setback in trying again to get pregnant, but I don't know what they'll do about the scarring. Ugh. It just feels like cruel fate especially because I didn't have a D&C in August, specifically because I was warned against it due to scarring. I'm meeting with my dr in the morning to discuss all this. With just having a miscarriage four weeks ago, and having my 4 wisdom teeth cut out one week ago, the thought of another surgery just sounds terrible and so overwhelming. I'm sure we'll do it, though. Has anybody ever had this type of surgery before or heard of it? Any ideas about the scarring in my uterus and what could cuase this? Sorry for the long, long email. Thanks for listening-I'm feeling pretty down and it helps to get it out.
