  • New, need help

    Hi, I am new, and I need some help. I had a D&C on 9-14-09 and then had to have another one on 9-21-09 because there were still "products of conception" in me and my uterus was trying to contract causing a lot of pain. I still have not had a cycle. I have been on two rounds of provera, and just finished a round of premarin and am starting a third round of provera. I have a great deal of pain, like I am trying to start or cramp or ovulate, but nothing happens... no blood whatsoever. My doc says that there is not a good reason for me to have this kind of pain, and I am thinking I am just a wuss. In my life, I have endured very great pain, which included playing softball with dislocated fingers and suffering from migraines that were so severe, I sometimes passed out or threw up or both. I know I can "take" the pain, but I am starting to doubt myself. Does anyone else have this kind of pain with a normal period or have gone this long without having a cycle after a procedure like a D&C? P.S. I have a cyst on my right ovary that, at last check, was 25 mm across. Is that large enough to cause a lot of pain? I want to take this information to my doctor when I go for an appointment on Thursday, Feb 4.

    Thanks to all who reply.

  • Sorry, what is a D&C?

    • It's like an abortion. It's stands for dilation and cutterage. I had what my doctor called a "blighted ovum", which basically meant that my baby stoppped developing very early on. There was no heartbeat, and nothing but but a placenta growing on the ultrasound. I waited 10 ten weeks, because sometimes you can't see the baby because your uterus is tilted or something. But there was nothing. To be sure, I didn't want an abortion. I WANTED my baby. I am still dealing with the "loss" of my baby. But to answer your question, a D&C is the medical way to deal with your baby being dead inside of you and not able to be induced into labor because you are not far enough along.

      Thanks for posting.
