Fertility question
nic14120 posted:
Hi! I am a 35 yr old female. I have a history of PCOS and Hypothyrodism. My thyroid is currently under adj with meds because I am up and down for the last 4 labs. My PCOS has seem to be ok as I have had a period every 30 days for a good while now. My last child was born .3/2011. We are looking to start to conceive our 3rd child. I am going to see the OB on Mon to discuss my fertility. I was curious though- last Jan, and the Nov before that, at my annual visits, they have done a procedure where they go thru my cervix to my uterus and suck out tissue of my uterus to test the tissue. both times I was told it was healthy tissue. I am wondering if this procedure is known to create scar tissue from the sucking it does? Can it impact my fertility? I have had a good 8-9 periods since the last test. My husband is finally on board for another, and I am anxious and hoping this does not impact my chances, esp seeing as I have PCOS and issues with my thyroid already!! and am 35! THank you!
