First of all....this is a great educational site! After reading so many of the posts...I don't know what to think! My dr hasn't explained too much to me, other than the fibroid that she says is the size of a small apple. I don't ovulate and when I do bleed, it would be forever if I didn't have the progestrone to start/stop it...not to mention those liver-like clots! A few docs I have seen in the past have told me that I don't ovulate because I'm overweight! Everytime I would see a overweight women either pregnant or with a baby...I would think, well how come she ovulates!!!! One of the girls emailed me about PCO. I had never heard of it and it has never been mentioned to me by any of the doctors I have seen over the years. Now I'm thinking that if this has been my problem all along (other than the fibroid) could I have been treated and have had a different outcome? I have started with pain/cramping the last few months, but it is tolerable and I guess it's the fibroid....or is it my brain telling me I have pain because I know the fibroid is there? I just don't know what to think. I'm scheduled for a uterine biopsy on 11/24 and plan to take a list of questions with me to ask my doc so I can understand exactly what is going on. I guess I'm scared too.

I don't really have any medical things to say but as far as your weight. Not true, my whole family is over weight and had babies... etc. I'm sorry a dr has told you that, it is not true though, love your self and know that you are beautiful no matter what size you may be. And I hope they find more answers for you and fix the problem for you soon.
