Earthpower - Thanks for checking up on me.
At my follow up appointment my Dr. said my MRI scan showed very poor vascular blood flow in the uterus but when he was viewing my uterus in surgery everything looked normal. He removed 1 adhesion in the cervix which was likely to be blocking my AF.
He was questioning whether the actual MRI scan was faulty or I'm in early
menopause and to be sure wants me to have a repeat MRI on Tuesday 18th after 10 days on estrogen.
He said I'm a complete mystery cause he did an ultrasound in the office and said
the vascular flow looks normal. Also early November a GP referred me to have a
pelvic ultrasound and the report said I had follicular activity on both ovaries
and an endrometriam of 5mm so a new cycle was starting!!
Not unless early November I was menstruating (but no withdrawel bleed due to
Stage 1 AS) and now in December I'm in early menapause!! OMG It never ends with me!!!
I've been a bit quiet but still lurking and cheering you on. Wishing you all the best for your transfer on Monday, may the magic milk do it's thing!!!!

Helen, you have been in my thoughts a lot. You must be so frustrated. I hope that the 18th comes around quickly for you. Wishing you some calm after this storm. Thank you again for setting up this thread. You did a wonderful thing. FG

I agree with FG, you did a wonderful thing to set up this thread for so many of us, I feel Something is missing cycling without u!
I don't have answers for u but it doesn't seem add up one month u have obvious O pain, the next you have early menopause? I hope the adhesion he removed is the answer for no af and the2nd MRI will produce a conclusion for all the confusion. But sounds like your specialist is willing to get to the bottom of it which is great! I know this must be difficult times, hope you will find the calmness to deal with all this. I think in a way, things happen for a reason, maybe the universe knows how precious your last two embryos are and want to make sure everything is alright before u embark on the journey...I would have never know that my body now tend to O on day 10 until last cycle was cancelled, in hindsight, it kind of like a trial run for me to ensure I got intralipid at the right time. So although the delay at the time was annoying (especially I'm a perfectionist) I'm grateful that it happened in a way. I guess this ttc journey also taught me a lot in life, such as patience and go with the flow....sending strength to u and u know you are not far away from our thoughts.....

Thankyou Festivalgirl and Earthpower for your kind words. After 6 years being a member of bubhub on this long TTC journey I've experienced an incredible amount of support from numerous wonderful ladies so I'm really pleased I have been able to give something back! I requested the mods to set up this thread so we could support each other & raise awareness to ladies who have been told they have 'unexplained fertility' which doesn't exist as it usually ends up being an immune issue! Along with the amazing work of Dr. M I'm so happy that more ladies can receive the right diagnosis and the med's they require in order to fall pregnant AND STAY PREGNANT!!!!
I couldn't agree with you more Earthpower things do happen for a reason. After the recent events I've been through it's helped me welcome closure. I'm in a good place now and I can be true to myself. If I don't find my BFP at my final transfer (donor embies in Cape Town) I honestly can say ENOUGH is ENOUGH and goodbye to all the heartache and emotional rollercoaster of the last 6 years and finally move forward with my life!! Focus on my son and feel content with what I have!!
If I hadn't gone through everything in the last 6 months and then get a BFN with my last two embryo's, I would of been forced to come to the end of road but not actually feel it in my heart. I would of been lying to myself about being ready to stop. It's funny how things work out!

Helen what a confusing set of results!!! And how frustrating, I hope the next MRI brings some answers
Earthpower - Good Luck for transfer tomorrow
April - you surviving the TWW? Give us news, you must have POAS by now ;-)
AFM - I couldn't do it, I wanted one more day pretending I might be pregnant before BT tomorrow. Pretty sure it hasn't worked. Had some spotting yesterday. Going to enjoy my wedding anniversary today and hope for big things for us all in 2013 :-)

Big hugs April, it's hard after so many disappointment, you kind of wonder which way forward...look after yourself....
scruffy, everything is crossed for u for ur b/t!
AFM, finally got my two embies on board! I was so nervous this morning praying they will survive the thaw, luckily they did and were expanding whey were put in...so I'm officially PUPO!
Helen, so glad to hear that you are in a good place right now and welcome the closure. I feel we are in a very similar phase...this morning, DH and I congratulated each other after the transfer and we consider its a success of the cycle regardless what the result is...because we have done absolute everything within our power and the cycle so far went smoothly, the rest is completely in Gods hands now....I'm going to enjoying this TWW without worrying....either way we will be happy, BFP or be free and truly enjoying the life we are quite content atm without this dark cloud hanging over us...I feel a big load off my shoulders as of this moment, I can tell u, it feel bloody brilliant!
good luck with the 18th...will be thinking of u!

April : huge hugs. I'm so sorry it was a bfn.
Earthpower: congrats on being PUPO! Keeping everything crossed for you
Helenmac: I think you have a great attitude towards all this. I'm glad you were able to get some answers with the ashermans diagnosis.
Scruffy: hope you enjoyed your anniversary and good luck for BT.
Festival girl: how are you going? I read back a bit but couldn't see a recent update (may have missed it though).
Mayflower: welcome all the best for this cycle, hope you're not going too crazy in the 2ww!
Hi to the other ladies
AFM: 12 weeks on Wednesday! Have our NT scan then too. I went to hurstville yesterday for my 3rd intralipid infusion and dr m expects i will have another one in 6-8 weeks. Will start slowly weaning off progesterone and prednisolone in the next few weeks which I am a little bit nervous about but I'm sure dr m knows what he is doing!
