Hi there, wondering if anyone can shed any light on my current situation.
I got pregnant via ivf in early September, but lost it at 7 weeks. Had a D&C this Wednesday and during the procedure I started bleeding excessively - lost 200ml of blood. My doctor put in a foley balloon to stop the bleeding and I was rushed to hospital. Luckily the foley balloon did it’s job and I had it removed 24 hrs later (yesterday). Only pink discharge since. However, on ultrasound after removing the balloon, my RE said she thought it looked like a uterine AVM and proceeded to tell me it may be too dangerous to conceive in the future because of it.
Obviously I want to have this suspected diagnosis confirmed but she’s insisting I wait 6 weeks before an MRI to allow my uterus to heal from the miscarriage. 6 weeks feels like an eternity.
I’m attaching my colour doppler ultrasound incase any of you have seen something similar? Does this look like an AVM? Apparently the black masses (blood) measure 13mm at widest point but the color doppler doesn’t show blood flow through it, only around. It is only 2 days post d&c however so maybe this will increase over time?
Any thoughts would be very much appreciated!
I’m in San Francisco btw, in case anyone has doctor recommendations
Thanks so much!
