TTC / Complex Hyperplasia w/ Atypia


On January 16, 2006, I had a Laproscopy with D&C which included a biopsy of the polyp removed and my endometrial lining. The lab report shows that I have Complex Hyperplasia with Atypia. I have no idea how severe the issue really is at this point and will be following up with a doctor visit tomorrow to discuss our plan of attack.

Both my husband and I are 36 years old and were married May 2005. In July 2005, I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes (hereditary). I also have a hypothyroid which I've been treating since 1999. In July we also started trying to concieve (TTC). As a precautionary measure, I called my OB/Gyn to discuss our TTC with Diabetes and Hypothryoid. Everything was looking fairly positive when we recieved news that my husband had poor sperm motility. Then we made it past that hurdle only to find out I had Polyp that needed to be removed. It just seems like there are so many things happening to prevent us from concieving.

With this latest news, as I mentioned, we are not prepared to consider a hysterectomy at this time. The doctor has suggested a drug therapy of Megace and Metformin and BCP for 3 months followed by another D&C with a biopsy. If everything looks good and has improved, we will immediately work and making sure I ovulate so I can get pregnant.

I'm just starting to put together a list to go over on our Dr. Appointment for tomorrow (Fri. January 27) and here is what I have so far:

How strong of a dosage is required?
How successful is the drug therapy?
What are the side effects of the Megace?
What if the therapy is only partially successfull after 3 months?
Are there other drugs I can use to help offset the side effects?
What about including some holistic approaches along with the traditional medicine? (Such as taking Apricot Seed - my husband understands and studies that Apricot seed may help in the case of possible cancer).

My husband also has a few additional questions that are Chemical / Pharmecutical based since he is a Chemical Engineer and works in the BioPharmacutical industry.

The most bizarre part, I've never had the standard symptoms that seem to be associated with Endo, PCOS, etc. I ovulate (or seem to ovulate) on a regular basis based on my TTC charts and signs including taking temps., using a fertility monitor and Ovulation Prediction Kits. My Endocrinologist had ruled out PCOS based on blood work and lack of symptoms but my OB/Gyn is saying I have PCOS.

Anyway... it would appear as though the next few months will be a wild rollercoaster ride.

Hi (((Pam)))

You have a lot you are dealing with and my heart goes out to you. I think you have a good list of questions for your doctor today. Many of the ladies dealing with hyperplasia seek the advice of a GYN-Oncologist, since they are the specialists in the field. That's probably what I'd do -- especially with the atypia.

You can do a SEARCH here for "Megace", or "Hyperplasia + atypia" etc. and find other threads about some of the conditions you mentioned. I don't have any experience with it myself, but I wanted to send you a and let you know I'm thinking of you.

I hope the rollercoaster ride is a short one for you. I'll say a prayer for you and DH as you hold on to each other during all that you are going through together. Let us know how your appointment goes today, okay?

Gentle s,
