As I prepare for my procedure tomorrow, I wonder if this is it! I am going in for a hysteroscopy, my third since 1999. A scope is put through into your uterus where a small camera will tell the doctors if there are any polyps. They found two this time right in the "best spot" for fertilization. They will cut or scrape them and then I will wake-up, go home, and hope that the next time we try an infertility treatment - we will be successful.
Barren, unproductive, infertile are words that bring tears to the soul of any woman. Isn't it our nature as women to conceive, bare children, or, at least have this option. It isn't easy being surrounded by birth, but we won't hold it against you, if you won't hold it against us! We don't want people to feel sorry for us, just understand. The next time you meet your friend or family member, or come across someone with infertility in their life - give them hug and tell them you understand!
