Starfish, I saw Prof V yesterday and he said I'm a mystery!! He said when he looked at the MRI scan it wasn't consistant with the vascular of the uterus at surgery as I only had the 1 adhesion in the cervix.
He told me there could be a chance that either the MRI scan didn't work properly I'm in early menopause He then did an ultrasound on me and he said the vascular looks normal but I haven't ovulated. It's all a bit strange but he wants me to repeat the MRI scan after 10 days on estrogen.
I called the imaging place to enquire about a repeat MRI scan and if I have to pay $500 again and they said yes. So I'm not happy about that but what can I do.
I'm confused because the pelvic report I received from the first GP (early November) said that both ovaries had normal blood flow and follicular activity with an endrometriam of 5mm and no known reason form amenorrhoea and now (early Dec) I'm menopausal!!!!!
My scan is on Tuesday 18th December so I'll book in another appointment with Dr. V today to find out the results. I'll keep you posted.
Hope you are going well

Our bodies are complex aren't they Helen! Glad to hear more investigations are planned to get to the bottom of the vascular issue, but I think you can take heart from your previous good results. Did Prof V tell you whether there was a delay in vascular filling seen on the MRI when they injected the contrast dye? Another good test will be to closely monitor how your lining responds now.
A friend of mine who saw Prof V also had an unusual result reported on MRI, no endo seen at all and severe delay in vascular filling which the radiologist incorrectly reported as likely severe Asherman's. Hers was actually due to menopause (which she already knew) but my point is incorrect assumptions about cause were made.
My 2nd MRI did not set me back quite as much as the 1st, so I'm quietly hoping you might get a surprise??

Thank you for the great info

Starfish - Thanks for your repsonse. Yeah I'm leaning more towards not quite menopausal as I'm feeling some follicular activity on my ovaries and pretty sure I'm ovulating. Perhaps all I needed was an extra boost of estrogen to kick start them!
I'm not too bothered to be honest I'm approaching early menopause as my final FET in SA is all done my synthetic hormones anyway! I'm just not too happy about having to pay another $500 for a repeat MRI scan. How did you manage to have the 2nd one cheaper? I asked them when I booked it and the lady said I'll have to pay $500 again.
I'm on standby on the 20th next week to see Dr. V. Hopefully someone cancels or they can sqeeze me in. Idealy I'd like to know before Xmas how the MRI scan went.
SO glad little bean is thriving and that you are now 11 weeks!!!!!!!

Good luck with 2nd MRI this week Helen and hope you get in to Prof V on the 20th I feel confident you will be on your way very soon to your next transfer I think it was a bit of a fluke that the 2nd MRI was less. I also asked about cost when I booked and was told $500 but when it came time to pay it was $250 (I didn't ask any questions, and it was just as long and loud as the first!)
Good luck to you also Miffy!

Thanks for the good wishes starfish
I'm going to have a d and c and hysterscopy in January hopefully due to adhesions/polps
Hopefully is does the trick for me

Know the risks of D&C's - Asherman's Syndrome
I really don't know much about the removal of polyps but I'm just wondering if it is necessary to have the lining scraped when there are already adhesions present?
Great your surgeon is doing a hysteroscopy and if the adhesions are thin and filmy they might be able to be broken down with the hysteroscope alone. If you've already read this thread you will know using micro scissors to remove more dense adhesions will minimise the risks of further damage.
Good luck and hope your situation is easily dealt with and you are back to TTC in no time!

Starfish, thanks for the well wishes. I had my MRI scan today and I have my appointment with Prof V at 1.30pm on the 20th so I'll have a clear picture on what's going on in a couple of days.
PS The repeat MRI scan was $500 so hopefully Prof V can give me the discount instead
