I have had 2 uterine casts in the past. Both were associated with use of birth control pills including a regular combination pill and a low-estrogen form of the pill as well. Considering this hasn't afflicted me outside of the use of birth control, I have not taken any form for the last 5 years.
Originally I was placed on birth control to regulate my cycle as I am known to have extremely irregular and extremely heavy cycles. Occasionally I will have a regular cycle but always heavy.
I have noticed most feminine doctors I have met do not know about uterine/decidual casts. However, I have moved a bit since I was diagnosed with the issue in earlier years by a previous doctor whom I do not see since I have moved.
Most doctors want to just put me on a different form of the pill without learning more about my issue. I have limited information on this topic. My current doctor, whom prob won't be when I find another, has suggested trying the mini-pill, a progesterone only form of birth control. From what I have read, this issue is caused by progesterone. My pharmacist however is looking more into the issue and is getting back to me this week. I do not want to risk taking another form of birth control and having another cast. I have not had any reason to worry about pregnancy since it seems I can not get pregnant. One doctor suggested PCOS, which was then later contradicted by another doctor who said there was no possibility of PCOS after testing and multiple exams.
I want to know if this issue with casts, if it has effect on potential for pregnancy and also if there is just a normal hormone imbalance that can be tested for and fixed.View Thread
