Well, Friday was a good day. No, Friday was a GREAT day. I originally had an appointment with the OBGYN to get to the bottom of this irregular cell change business in late May. Yes, that’s correct, I said MAY. Luckily enough I was able to get a cancellation appointment last Friday morning and took it without hesitation.
What I thought was only going to be a consultation appointment turned in to the best appointment ever. Firstly I was told I would be having the colposcopy that morning! YIPPE. Then, if the doctor needed too, he would also do a biopsy. The doctor was really great and explained things very clearly to me. In fact, he broke it down in to plain English instead of all the fancy medical (atypical, LSIL, etc.) terms. He asked me if I had ever been through the metal detector at the airport and if it had gone off. I said, yes. He then asked me why it went off and I told him it was because I was wearing a belt. He asked me why else a metal detector would go off and I replied that it would go off if it detected any metal. Basically his comparison was this – that you could set off a metal detector with a gun or with a belt and more often than not, it’s just a belt. That is how he described irregular cell changes to me. He said most likely, I’m just wearing a belt and we shouldn’t have anything to worry about.
So with that, he performed the colposcopy and took a biopsy and noted that he is not concerned about what’s going on down there. He said he would monitor me every six months but, and these are the words that brought instant joy to my life, I SHOULD NOT PUT OFF IUI ANY LONGER BECAUSE OF THIS. I honestly couldn’t even concentrate after that. I was already calculating in my head when I would get my period and how soon it would be and when we could start and the answer, as of today, is 17 days. I should have my period in approximately 17 days. We are so close once again and, pending no other major interference, will be back on our road to baby so very soon.
