Hello everyone, I’m Lara and new to UAVM. I was diagnosed with it after a medical miscarriage at the beginning of november. After taking misoprostol (pregnancy had stopped at 6 weeks) I had a follow up and the doctor saw that there still was something in my uterus. She first said I should have a D/C but then discovered that the area was too much vascularized and told me that I had an uterine AVM. Now I’m taking the pill and the bleeding is getting lighter every day (just some spotting at the moment).
I am so worried because I never heard of this condition before and found nothing on the internet. Finally I found this site where I can talk with other women dealing with this problem and would like to share experiences with you! I do not understand why my gyn did not consider embolization…?
Until now I had just an apisode of heavy bleeding (with big clots) but I don’t know if it was related to the miscarriage or to the AVM.
From the day I started to take the pill it seems that the bleeding decreased and almost disappeared but… in two days I have to take a long flight (12 hours) and I am so worried to start bleeding on the airplane!!!
Anyways, I’ll have to go back to the doctor next 19th december and hope to hear some good news. Did someone have a spontaneous resolution of the AVM? Is this possible?
