After over a month of treatments, I have finally had my endometrial biopsy. I find treatments for mock cycles quite annoying so now that its over I am really happy I can finally take a break from drugs! Progesterone just makes me so tired… The biopsy is not too bad; certainly not pleasant but it’s not worse than other exams.
I don’t know how things work in other countries but here when you go for a test of this sort you are given the tissue that was taken and you have to go send it to the lab yourself. I don’t understand this system. For me it’s totally crazy! So anyway, I did go to the post office to send this little piece of me to be analysed, hoping that it’s carrying good news or at least answers.
The purpose of this biopsy is to decide if I need an endo scratch before the next IVF round. The lab will check whether I have too many or too few immune cells. Too many cells can be an obstacle for the embryos to implant, so a scratch can be done to help implantation. Otherwise the normal way is better.
I have a long wait for the results which won’t arrive arrive before end of January. So I guess I’ll just have to focus on enjoying a break for now!
