  • Understanding Uterine Polyps and Fibroids

    Both fibroids and polyps are growths that can develop within the uterus, but differ in terms of their composition, location, symptoms, and potential health risks. Understanding the difference between polyps and fibroids can help you make more informed decisions about your health and treatment options. In this blog post, we'll explore the key distinctions between these two types of uterine growths and how they may impact your fertility. What Are Polyps? Uterine Polyps are small, benign (non-cancerous) growths that develop within the inner lining of the uterus, also known as the endometrium. These growths are typically composed of endometrial tissue and can vary in size, ranging from a few millimeters to several centimeters. While polyps tend to be non-cancerous, they have the potential to become cancerous, specifically in post-menopausal women (1). What are Fibroids? Uterine fibroids, also known as leiomyomas or myomas, are non-cancerous growths that develop from the muscle tissue of the uterus. These growths can very in size, ranging from small, seed-like growths to large masses within the uterine wall (intramural), protrude outward from the uterus (subserosal), or attach to the inner lining of the uterus (submucosal). Key Differences Between Polyps and Fibroids Composition Polyps are made of endometrial tissue Fibroids are made of muscular tissue Location Polyps are located in the Endometrium Fibroids can be located throughout the uterus Size Polyps are small in size Fibroids are large in size Symptoms Polyp symptoms can include bleeding, irregular cycles, and infertility Fibroids symptoms can include bleeding, prolonged periods, pelvic pain, frequent urination, and constipation Risk of Cancer Polyps are often benign, however there is a small risk of malignancy (presence of cancer) Fibroids are benign in nature Diagnosis and Treatment Both polyps and fibroids can be diagnoses through imaging tests such as ultrasound, MRI, or hysterectomy. Treatment options may vary depending on the size, location, symptoms, and individuals overall health. Options include watchful waiting, medications, minimally invasive procedures, or surgical removal. Surgical Methods of Treatment Polyps can be removed with a polypectomy Uterine fibroids can be removed surgically with a myomectomy, also known as a "fibroidectomy." Both procedures may be performed either by a gynecological surgeon or a reproductive endocrinologist. Impact on Fertility While many women with polyps and fibroids may conceive and have successful pregnancies, these uterine growths can sometimes interfere with fertility and reproductive health. How Polyps Impact Fertility Disruption of Implantation The mechanism by which polyps interfere with implantation is unclear (2), however studies suggest polyps may cause inflammation similar to an Intrauterine Device creating a suboptimal environment for implantation and fetal development. Biochemical Effects The presence of uterine polyps may increase the presence of inflammatory markers causing an imbalance in the environment of the endometrium (3). Mechanical Obstruction In rare cases, large polyps may obstruct the fallopian tubes or cervix, preventing the sperm from reaching the egg and fertilization from occurring (3). How Fibroids Impact Fertility Fibroids are present in 5-10% of women struggling with infertility (4). Fibroids impact fertility by: Distorting the Uterine Cavity Fibroids can alter the shape and size of the uterus, potentially affecting the sperm's ability to reach the egg, the implantation of a fertilized egg, or the growth and development of the fetus during pregnancy. It is important to note that where a fibroid is situated impacts embryo transfer outcomes (5). Limited Blood Supply Large fibroids may interfere with the blood supply to the uterine lining, affecting its thickness and receptivity, which can impact implantation and increase the risk of miscarriage. Compression of Fallopian Tubes Subserosal or intramural fibroids may compress or distort the fallopian tubes, preventing the egg from traveling to the uterus and decreasing the chance of fertilization. Discussing With Your Doctor If you suspect that polyps or fibroids may be contributing to your struggle to conceive, it is important to discuss your concerns with you OBGYN and/or fertility specialist. It may be overwhelming and you may feel unsure where to begin. This is where we can help. Here are a few tips to help. Track Your Symptoms It is important to log any symptoms you are experiencing in detail, such as: Detailed description of symptoms How long the symptoms last Write down when they began and keep track of how long they last How intense your symptoms are Questions to Ask Your Doctor Ask your doctor to differentiate what is normal and what is not. It is important to be forceful In explaining if something doesn't feel right. Remember, severe pain or other symptoms that impacts your daily life is not normal and should be communicated to your doctor rather than just dismissed What will happen if you do not seek treatment? What are the least Invasive to most Invasive treatment options available? How long will take me to recover from each treatment and proceed to accomplish my fertility goals? The good thing is you can use the Grain Fertility application to keep all of this in one place.

  • Navigating LGBTQ+ Family Planning and Fertility

    Insights from a Fertility Nurse & Patient Empowerment Coach  If you're reading this, chances are you're exploring the wonderful world of family planning within the LGBTQ+ community. As a fertility nurse, I've had the privilege of working with individuals and couples from all walks of life, including those who identify as LGBTQ+. At Grain Fertility, we strongly believe everyone is entitled to grow the family of their dreams and families are not one-size-fits-all. The path to parenthood in this community is nothing short of remarkable and while often people do not know where to begin, we are here to guide you through the process.  First things first, let's debunk a common myth that family planning and fertility treatments are just for heterosexual couples. That could not be more than false! LGBTQ+ individuals and couples have every right to pursue their dreams of parenthood. Here at Grain Fertility, we want to help you make those dreams a reality. No matter your race, religion, sexual orientation, or identification, Grain Fertility can provide you with the organizational tools and fertility navigation services you need to help you through your own journey. Assisted Reproductive Technology for the LGBTQ+ Community The path to parenthood in the LGBTQ+ community is commonly achieved via assisted reproductive technology (ART). Whether it's through intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), or surrogacy, there are a myriad of options available to help LGBTQ+ individuals and couples conceive. Let's not sugarcoat it; the road to parenthood for LGBTQ+ individuals and couples can come with its fair share of challenges. From navigating legal hurdles and escalating expenses to facing societal stigma, there are obstacles that must be overcome. As a  fertility nurse  and a Grain Fertility Patient Empowerment Coach , part of my role is to provide not only medical education but also emotional support every step of the way. One of the things I love most about my job is the opportunity to educate and advocate for my patients. Whether it's explaining the ins and outs of ART procedures or connecting patients with resources within the LGBTQ community, I'm here to empower individuals and couples to make informed decisions about their family-building journey.   A growing number of same-sex couples are turning to Assisted Reproductive Technology to have children. However, there are a number of factors to consider, including: Same-Sex Females For women who are considering ART for their family building, it is important to consider several questions when exploring fertility options, including: How will you find a sperm donor (either known or anonymous); and Is either partner is interested in carrying the pregnancy or will you use a surrogate?   Same-sex femals have several options for assisted reproduction, including: Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) An IUI is a fertility procedure in which donor sperm would be inserted into the patient’s reproductive tract by the means of a catheter. This is done at your fertility doctor’s office while you are awake and can be slightly uncomfortable. Before the IUI, you may need to visit the fertility clinic multiple times to monitor the development of the follicles, each containing an egg, in order to time the IUI with ovulation. Reciprocal-IVF Simply put, this option is when one partner’s eggs are used to create an embryo and the other partner carries the pregnancy. Reciprocal-IVF is unique in that it enables both partners to be directly involved in the pregnancy journey. One partner can donate their eggs by undergoing ovarian stimulation and a surgical procedure to extract the eggs from the ovaries. The eggs are then fertilized in the laboratory through the process of IVF create embryos. At this time, the second partner may undergo preparations for the embryo to be transferred into her own uterus. Both procedures will require sperm from either a known donor or an anonymous donor. Both of these procedures will require sperm from either a known or anonymous donor. Same Sex Male Couples For men considering ART for their family building, there are several options, including: The sperm that is used; Either one or both partners are able to provide a sperm sample to fertilize eggs from an egg donor. This enables the offspring to be genetically related if you choose to grow your family with more than one child. By using donor eggs, embryos can be created via the process of in-vitro fertilization and stored for later use.  The use of donor eggs to be fertilized with partner’s sperm; and How will you find a surrogate to carry the child? Our friends at Expecting.AI have drafted an amazing resource for intended parents navigating the complexities of third-party reproduction. This can be read here. Single Parents by Choice While Hollywood has sold us on the story that we are all meant to meet Mr. or Mrs. Right, fall in love and have children, that is not always the case. Your relationship status should not be a barrier to parenthood. Thankfully with modern day fertility treatment, there are a number of options for single men and women to become parents. Women: Most common path to parenthood is IUI involving donor sperm The IUI procedure may be done at home, as there are at-home kits to support this, however the majority of the time IUI is performed at a fertility clinic. Unfortunately women exploring this option may be at a later age and therefore may have diminished fertility. Do not despair, the beauty behind fertility is the opportunity to explore egg donation or embryo donation Men: Men who are interested in pursuing the path to parenthood may do so by the means of egg donation and a surrogate. If a man does not want to be genetically connected to his child there is the option for embryo donation or adoption as well. Transgender Men/Transgender Women:  Prior to gender affirming hormone replacement therapy and/or surgical intervention, there are options to help set yourself up to be able to have a biological child. Transgender Men: Those born with a uterus and ovaries may consider preserving their eggs prior to gender affirming treatment. Therefore, when they want to grow their family biologically, their eggs may be fertilized with donor sperm and transferred into a gestational carrier’s uterus. Transgender Women: For a man who is transitioning, they have the ability to freeze their sperm before undergoing gender affirming treatment. The sperm may be inserted directly into a uterus via Intrauterine Insemination or sperm may be fertilized to use the embryos in the future via a female partner or gestational carrier. It is important to discuss with your Reproductive Endocrinologist where you are in your journey and provide detailed documentation and records with all of your doctors to ensure you are medically cleared to begin fertility treatments. This is something Grain Fertility can help with, as our organizational tools and timeline feature allow you to record and save your most important health information in one easy to use location. Every Journey is Unique It is important to recognize that every LGBTQ family's journey is unique. What works for one couple may not work for another, and that's okay. As a fertility nurse, I'm here to listen, support, and tailor treatment plans to meet the individual needs of each patient. At the end of the day, LGBTQ family planning isn't just about biology—it's about love, resilience, and the unwavering desire to create a family. Here at Grain Fertility, I,  along with our team of Patient Empowerment Coaches,  feel incredibly privileged to be a part of that journey. The application is user-friendly and can support anyone embarking on the path to parenthood through fertility treatments. Premium users at Grain Fertility are able to access 1 on 1 coaching sessions, receive discounts with our fertility partners and gain access to exclusive webinars.  We are committed to providing compassionate care to all individuals and couples, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. So, to all my LGBTQ friends out there who are dreaming of starting or expanding their families, know that you are not alone. With the right support and resources, your dreams of parenthood can become a beautiful reality. We are here each step of the way, cheering you on.  If you have any further questions or need assistance, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

  • The Egg Retrieval Process: An Overview and Tips from a Fertility Nurse

    At Grain Fertility, we are dedicated to providing resources to help patients understand the different parts of the fertility treatment process so they can feel more confident and empowered in their own journey. After all, how can we expect someone to ask informed questions if they are struggling to understand the basics of their care? The egg retrieval represents the culmination of weeks of physical and emotional work and fertility patients often put a lot of pressure on themselves in the build up. To help you feel more confident during your own egg retrieval, maximize your chances of success, and ensure a smooth recovery on the day of the egg retrieval, we have drafted this primer to help provide the support you need: Before the Egg Retrieval: Unfortunately, doctors cannot schedule the precise day of your egg retrieval weeks in advance. Because of this, when starting the ovarian stimulation process, it's crucial to keep several days open in your calendar for potential surgery dates. As much as we would love to have this much control over the schedule and process, unfortunately this is something fertility patients will have to struggle with throughout their journey. While this can be hard, here are some steps to help you plan ahead before your procedure: Keep days 10-14 of your cycle open for potential egg retrieval (keep in mind that this is the average date of retrieval, your retrieval may fall out before or after). You will need to arrange for someone to pick you up and accompany you home. Plan to take off the day of your procedure and reserve work or errands for the following day. It is important to talk to your doctor and care team regularly throughout your cycle to help plan for this. The Day of the Egg Retrieval: Your care team will contact you 1-2 days before your procedure with critical instructions such as: The time to arrive at the surgical site When to stop eating When to stop drinking Specific valuables they recommend that you leave at home Before your procedure, you will meet with your healthcare team, including: The Nurses The Anesthesiologist The Fertility Doctor (note that the doctor of the day may not be the same one you've been working with throughout the process) The Embryologist You may have last-minute questions that are itching to ask your care team. Go for it! They are there to answer all of your questions and make you feel comfortable before the procedure begins. It may be useful to write down questions you have before the appointment so you are organized and don't forget. We know you will have a lot going on and it can be easy for forget something you intended to ask before the retrieval starts. Post-Procedure Tips: Tip #1: Relax! Congratulations! You've done it! After numerous evenings of medication injections and feeling like a pharmacist yourself, along with a successful surgery, the hard part is behind you. Now, it's time to prioritize quality rest and a full recovery. While you might feel okay once you are discharged from the hospital/clinic, it will take 24 hours for the anesthesia to fully clear out of your system. Therefore, it's crucial to rest and take it easy. This is the ideal opportunity to indulge in binge-watching the latest show on Netflix that you've been eager to watch. Snuggle up on your couch, order some take-out, and relish the day off from work. Tip #2: Pain Management After the egg retrieval, it's common to experience cramping, tenderness, and constipation. It's essential to stay ahead of the pain and manage any discomfort effectively. Here are some suggestions: Heating Pad: Placing a heating pad on your abdomen can provide relief from cramps. Medication: Over-the-counter options like Tylenol or Advil can help alleviate post-procedure discomfort. Stool Softener: Constipation is another common issue after egg retrieval, often due to elevated progesterone levels, the use of narcotics during the procedure, and inactivity following retrieval. To alleviate discomfort and promote bowel movement, consider taking a stool softener like Colace to help relieve stress and discomfort associated with constipation. Hydration and Fiber: Ensure you stay well hydrated and consume fiber-rich foods to help combat post-anesthesia constipation. Tip #3: Protein Rich Diet Indulge in some french fries and a cheeseburger! It might not sound like typical advice from a doctor, but the truth is, after an egg retrieval, salty and protein-rich foods are exactly what you need. In the days following the procedure, patients are at the highest risk of developing OHSS (Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome), a complication where excess fluid from the ovaries leaks into other parts of the body. To mitigate this risk, doctors often recommend consuming foods rich in salt. Salt helps draw out extra fluid from the ovaries, reducing the likelihood of OHSS. Looking for a healthier alternative? Try coconut water, popcorn, or fish. Tip #4: Expect a Heavier Period: You should anticipate your next menstrual period to arrive anywhere between 7-12 days after your egg retrieval, and it likely will be heavier than usual. Lupron typically results in a period about 7 days later, while hCG (Pregnyl or Ovidrel) usually leads to a period about 10-12 days later. The first period following the egg retrieval may be heavier than usual due to the increased hormone levels you administered for 10+ days, which not only facilitated follicular growth but also stimulated the thickening of the uterine lining. Once your body recognizes that pregnancy hasn't occurred, the uterine lining sheds, resulting in a heavier period than usual. We recommend using a heating pad and taking over-the-counter Tylenol/Advil for pain management, and changing pads/tampons frequently as needed. Conclusion Preparing for and undergoing an egg retrieval can be a complex and challenging process, but with the right information and support, you can navigate it successfully. It's essential to plan ahead, stay informed about what to expect, and prioritize self-care during the recovery period. Remember to keep communication lines open with your healthcare team, including nurses, who can be valuable resources for answering any additional questions or concerns you may have. They are there to provide support, guidance, and reassurance throughout your journey. It is also important to remember that while the greater the number of eggs you retrieve, the higher chance you have of developing normal embryos, retrieving a lower than expected number of eggs is not the end of your journey. If you need to, talk to your care team, a mental health professional, or a support group to help manage the psychological aspects of your egg retrieval.
