Today I went off to my fertility specialist. My goal was twofold: to get updated scripts that had run out and save a trip to the GP, and secondly to see how that lining was doing. My expectations were positive because of the herbs, acupuncture and diet work I had been doing.
Well once again life has other plans.
As it turns out my lining is “paper thin” (even worse than it was earlier this year) and I haven’t even ovulated this month.
The good news is that it could have been caused by the Chinese herbs, according to the doc. He says he can’t make any comments until I stop taking them, so as to take that variable out of the equation. He says in his experience they really mess things up.
This is not just going back to square one, it is probably going backwards.
However, it isn’t the first time bad news has turned into good news later. The first time I went to Dr R he told me I had to have a laparoscopy and I was devastated. But it worked out for the best – it was out with the old (endometriosis & fibroids) and in with the new (Nicky).
So I guess we’ll see next month if it really is the herbs or if something is seriously wrong…
