Scary scan moment!


Looking for any advice or reassurance please! Went for a 6 day scan today with a view of fet in this cycle. Consultant pulled a face at scan and showed me a 'thing' on the scan not seen before which was a shock 😱 Could it be residue from previous Ivf chemical pregnancy in March? Could it be a polyp? I'm back on Thursday for follow up scan to see what to do next. If it's a polyp apparently it prevents implantation and needs removing. More delays 😩 Feeling really fed up and concerned. Has anyone had this, what was it and did you go on to have successful pregnancy? Any help appreciated my lovelies xx

HI Bighope4.  I'm sure you are concerned. Obviously it seems as if whatever is there needs to be dealt with before proceeding with  your FET.  Not what you want to hear, but be assured that your little embie(s) is/are safe and waiting.  I do hope all is soon sorted out for you and you can soon get back on track again.  Thinking of you.  Diane


Thankyou Diane, please can you let me know the difference between a fibroid and a polyp? Don't know what it is yet, follow up on Thursday, but trying to understand the possibilities. Also it's never shown before, does that mean it was missed it it's only grown in the last 2 months? Thankyou


Thank-you Angeleee, that's really helpful. I'm not sure if you experienced this, but if you did I hope it went well & you had a positive outcome :-) hoping its a polyp & easily removed. another scan tomorrow night & then make a plan of action from there. I'm wondering how long I've had it (its never shown up before so maybe it was really small) & whether it caused a recent run of early mcs/chemical pregnancies. In a way I hope so & that getting this fixed will bring me closer to being a mum. trying to stay positive.

Hope your journey is going well xx
