I finally moved my butt after being kicked by hubby several times and made an appointment to see a gynae today. I was supposed to see the gynae who delivered my 3 gals for a follow-up ultrasound scan of my uterus to see if the fibroid (which was detected during my yearly check-up before I was preggers with Baby C) is still there. Since hubby is busy, I fixed an appointment to see a female gynae at the hospital near my place.
When I saw Dr Jason in April this year a few days after I had delivered Baby C, he had asked me to return to see him for a follow-up ultrasound scan in August. With my endless trips to the hospital with Baby C due to her recurring UTIs, I have put my own health behind me and focused on Baby C. What prompted me to see a gynae was that I was worried that I may be having vaginal yeast infection. I was worried that I would be passing my infection to Baby C as she’s still breastfed exclusively.
Anyway, the ultrasound scan (abdomen and vaginal) showed NO fibroid in sight. I was and am still in disbelief. How can the fibroid disappear so quickly coz when Dr Jason did the ultrasound scan in April 08, it was still there. Also, the gynae checked my down under and said there’s no yeast infection…. and I am in disbelief too coz I had it about 2 weeks ago. I am such a wimp and hypochondriac, ain’t I? Hubby told me that since I don’t trust any other gynaes except my fertility specialist (who is one of the best and most detailed gynaes I have seen), I should make an appointment to see him for another ultrasound scan. Yup I will but I just hate the idea of having a male inspect my down under. I will wait and procrastinate again.
Anyway, the female gynae who saw me today told me that vaginal yeast infection will not pass from me to my baby through breast milk.
