Ok, so I went to have my Mirena removed, and my doctor couldn’t find the strings. Apparently it has drifted upwards, so I will need to go see a gynecologist who have better tweezers or something, so there is a better chance they will find it. If they don’t find it, I will have to have it surgically removed. I have the gyne appointment on December 12th, and have to have a pelvic ultrasound before that, so he will know whether or not to try to root it out in the office or not. I am NOT looking forward to that gyne appointment, HOWEVER, having an OB/GYN doctor of my very own might enable me to get some of the more stumping questions answered, like how long I need to wait before harvesting after the Mirena is removed, and how long until the methotrexate clears. I have also written to one of the surrogacy clinics with these two questions, but no answer yet.
By the way, I would still recommend the Mirena to anyone who has issues with their cycle, especially really inconvenient and painful issues. I swear, I will be mourning my Mirena once it’s removed, I almost think my body is trying to suck it up so I can’t get it removed. It’s ok body, once I am able, I will get a new Mirena… I promise!!!
Apparently my doctor’s office did do a referral to the fertility clinic, but still no call from them. Don’t they want the money? Even though I am in BC, fertility/infertility stuff isn’t covered by the MSP health coverage, so there are $$$ on the line here people… why aren’t you calling to book an appointment??? I guess I will call them next week if I haven’t heard back, but it doesn’t make me warm and fuzzy.
I really wanted an October 2013 baby, but maybe that’s asking too much? Time’s a ticking, and I ain’t getting any younger (41, if I didn’t say so before).
I do have an appointment with my dermatologist, so I will ask her what she knows about methotrexate leaving the body, or it’s affects on human eggs. I wish the internet was a bit more consistent in its information, about anything 😐
