Hi everyone. I've recently had an ultrasound and a transvaginal ultrasound done to test for fibroids. I originally went to my OBGYN due to my menstrual cycle lasting 15+ days. She was sure she felt a fibroid during the pelvic exam and turns out, she was right. I found out that I have a fibroid, with the diameter being 5cm or the size of a clementine or plum. I now need to get a hysteroscopy done, which I am extremely nervous about. I have bad anxiety and it gets worse when it involves anything medical. My questions are, has anyone had this procedure before? What is it like, specifically pain-wise and how is the recovery? I'm 32 years old and getting married this year and would like to try to have my first child. I am concerned that, depending on the type of fibroid, it may not be able to be removed and I will continue having my period for half of the year, lowering my chances of being able to become pregnant and possible causing complications when I do become pregnant. Can anyone offer any insight? Thanks in advance!
