Ok, so here is the story. I found out I was pregnant with my first baby on June 21, 2011. I went in for a US on July 25th, 2011 for dating. I should have been almost 10 weeks, but the baby only measured 7w1d and had no heartbeat. I was devestated. I couldnt eat, sleep, or work because I knew my dead baby was inside me, and it had passed over 2 weeks previous ( missed miscarriage). On July 28th, I called the OB and asked them what my options were, because I could no longer bear the fact that I was still carrying the baby and my body wasn't naturally miscarrying. The only option I was given was a D&C. I really had no idea what it was, so I looked it up online, and it seemed easy enough. I just wanted the whole experience over with. So they scheduled my D&C for August 2nd. The hospital staff were great, and the experience was painless. I was told before I went in for the procedure that risks and complications were rare. I spotted for maybe an hour, some cramps, and that was it. I thought "Great, this is finally over".....was I wrong. Three months came and went with no period. Another devestation because I was told I should have my period in 4 weeks, and that we could try again after my first cycle. Called the OB...he told me I was fine and put me on Provera to induce AF....nothing. Tried it again...nothing. Did labs...normal. OB scheduled me for an HSG. On HSG day, I found out (after 30 minutes of the Dr trying to insert the catheter and horrible pain) that my cervix was scared shut from the D&C (Asherman's Syndrome). I was referred out to an RE (all out of pocket costs, of course, and 2 hours away). After meeting with the RE, he scheduled another HSG.....but he was prepared. On second HSG day, they inserted a micro-scissors into my vaginal canal and cut away the adhesions (which will continue to grow back). I still have no official prognosis....I have to continue to see my RE every 2 weeks to check how fast the adhesions grow back. RE assumes my chances of ever carrying a pregnancy to term is now 9%, all due to the D&C.
