Thanks for all your prayers ladies.

I didn't really get good news like I was hoping. I was hoping for some change for the better. But I can't really say it was any worse either. She noticed something today that wasn't mentioned at my appt 2 months ago.

So she went ahead and did a vaginal biopsy :-\ I don't really recommend it cause it was not overly pleasant. She had to stick a needle in my lady parts to freeze it. Oi! And I'm sure you can imagine the rest.

I go back to see her in 3 weeks for the results of the biopsy. It's kind of embarrassing the reason for the biopsy. So all I'll say is that she says it appears that my lady parts are shrinking. Wth???? So she's checking for inflammation. She didn't name it and it causes the symptoms I'm having.

So I guess I just wait 3 weeks to find out if I have this or not. And find out where I go from here. Also addressing the other stuff going on. Mood swings, irritability, hot flashes, lack if sex drive.

I feel like my body is failing me. I'm 35 years old. I should be in my prime now! Instead my body's doing the opposite. Grrrr sometimes our body's just plain s*ck!

I hear ya veronica.

A big part of the issue is that this is causing painful intercourse. So it's been awhile since we've had actual penetration. So now my husband is afraid he'll never get intercourse again

Ouch! It hurts so I know how you are feeling. Hope you get answers soon, sending hugs!

You've had it done too, Risa? It is definitely not comfortable. As uncomfortable as a pap test is, I would rather do that again then a vaginal biopsy.

Yes some answers would be really nice. It's the not knowing and playing the waiting game that really s*cks. If it's bad news then at least I'll know so then I can have a plan in place

Well, this definitely doesn't sound like a fun thing to go through. :( Hopefully, you've got some answers and a plan in a few weeks! Take are sweetie, you're in my thoughts. :)

Thanks heather. Wasn't the news I was hoping for. I was hoping things would "magically" get better. Haha

Ugh...so sorry to hear you went thru a biopsy.  I've had my share of lady issues/procedures when I went thru infertility treatments several years ago.  No fun.  Saying a prayer for you that you heal quickly from your procedure AND get some answers that result in resolving all of this. My hubby feels the same way right now even though my health issues are different.
Prayer, love and hugs your way!

Thanks Gina.

I'm feeling better today. The area still feels a little bit of pain. She told me to get some lydocaine ointment to numb it. So that's been working pretty good.

I just want some answers. I would like to be able to have physical intercourse again with my husband. We do other things, but that part is missing. I didn't think getting answers would be like pulling teeth.

Thanks for your prayers. And I'm sending you my prayers, love and hugs

Kris - All these ladies are amazing! That's exactly what I have to do. Just try and keep busy and keep my mind off it. Luckily I have a 20 month old, so he keeps me pretty busy.

Thank you for thinking of me
