    I'm sorry....I jast cant stop laughing at the glad wrap on the probe thing...that just cracks me up!!!



    It's funny but the times I have had it done the guyu docs always seem to be more proficient at the "wrapping of the probe business" than the girls docs......I dunno I find that mildly amusing but hey you got to find humour in what you can during the indignity thatis IVF.

    Lil Chookie...you going through Monash or Melbourne? We might be cycling together....that's if Geoff gets his tax refund on time....hehehe!!

    il c,

    they inject dye into your uterus through your Hoo-haa to see if there is any tubal blockages, so the dye should come out the other end of the tubes near your ovaries.
    not very painful, more just uncomfortable. i think it helps clear them out too. i had mine in August started clomid and concieved in both times straight after.

    HTH

    PS- everything crossed for you sarah(s).

    Did they say you need a full bladder Sarah? It's often not needed for a hoo haa scan!
    IF it is than hold on tight my love and dont' forget to tell us how gorgeous your insides look when you get back!

    Yeah they told me when I booked in that I had to do all the usual stuff for a pelvic ultrasound. I'm going to be very cross if I get there & I didn't need a full bladder LOL! Actually no I'd prefer to get there & be told to go pee rather than being told to go & drink then wait for an hour.

    ETA: So you think the results will be back pretty quickly?

    Well well well that makes sense, I had 2 ultrasounds (pelvic & aTV) so have the pelvic first, went to the loo then the TV. It took just over a hour & Zander was such a good boy. He sat in his pram for the entire time. He wasn't too happy about the 2nd half as he wanted to get out, but we managed. I just wish I had someone to look after him sometimes as everyone else works.

    Anyway, the results are due back at 4pm, so I'll leave Zander with my sister when she gets home just after & race off to get them. I'll update then.


    ETA: I've just been to the loo & I am now spotting, nothing major just a bit when I wiped & also internally. It's red as well. Is this normal???

    I have had this done but only when I have had laparoscopys (so I have been well asleep), I didn't realise it was done while you were awake also! Will I be okay to go back to work afterwards?

    Sarah - I have had a bit of spotting after an ultrasound before, nothing major just a bit when I wiped.

    i took the rest of the arvo off........... i had quite servere cramping or about 10-15 minutes afterwards and for me i prefered just to be with my hubby afterwards and didn't really feel like doing anything. i took 2 padandine before hand sothat may have lessened the pain

    The whole procedure took less than 15 minutes though, not including waiting time

    FYI- the levovist is teh nameof the stuff the actucally inject oyou with - weird huh??

    Lil C - i really hope this is the beginging for you- can't wait to see your ( and sarah _h preggo announcemnt)

    Well, we're right around that So is this normal, to have heaps on the other side thoug? The right ovary contains 8 follicles, with the largest measuring 6mm. The left ovary contains a single dominant follicle, measuring 23mmx21mmx18mm.

    The endometrium measures 9mm

    Everything else is all perfecto!! Very happy!

    Sorry, I didn't answer your question. Yes it's normal to have other follies that are immature. The poor loves won't get a look in as that 23mm one is a goer.
