Hi again!

I said the object "may be" the gestational sac - or it could be something else. Did you tell them that you were not pregnant when having the ultrasound?

As I mentioned before, you need to call your doctor to update them on your news of pregnancy so that they can see you. We can't tell why they said they need to refer you as we have no idea of what they saw. It's possible that you are pregnant AND something unidentifiable was found or they saw and misidentified the sac or any number of things which is why you need to make that call.

Please keep us updated!

Hi Anon,

Myosis of the uterus is a medical condition which shows the presence of glandular tissue in muscle. It means a gland with muscle condition. Unfortunately, the only way to permanently relieve the symptoms is through a hysterectomy. However, you can still talk to your doctor about the possibility of conceiving before even considering a hysterectomy-- you will also need to be monitored closely while you have this condition.

Best of luck to you,

Hi blaggard12

Your uterus is also your womb; two different words for the same thing.

The unidentified object may simply be the gestational sac (the forming of your new baby). Please call your doctor as soon as possible, to let her know and possibly be seen.
