Last month had a cyst removed from my fallopian tube, they think that is what has been causing the problem. So my question...should I try one natural cycle or should I just stick to the plan and take birth control for one cycle and start up with IUI next month.View Thread
Our doc says about 6 cycles before you try IVF, I guess it depends on your viewpoint. do what you are comfortbale with. For us, we have done five cycles and we are not too anxious to jump to invitro due to the cost. There are other factors. Have you seen a RE, after seeing two OBGYNS, i went to a RE and he did a LAP and found I had a cyst on my fallopian tube. He is pretty confident we can get pregnant now, (even though we have already tried 5 cycles). Can you get another opinion. I asked around "for the best RE in the state) it took me 2 months to get in, but it was worth it! Best of luck to you on your TTC journey! ohh one more thing, look into fertility acupunture, a local guy around here has a ton of natural tips, like drink your beverages room temperature, explains that our uterus contracts when its cold and it can act as a hostile environment. Omit Ice from your drinks, ect.View Thread
I know exactly how you are feeling. We have been trying for over 2 years, and each month gets harder and harder. I totally agree with others, find the best doctor in your area and schedule an appointment. My husband and I have seen 4 different doctors. Up until a month ago, EVERYTHING was unexplained. It wasnt until a RE, told us to do Laproscopy surgery, they finally found a cyst on my fallopian tube. It didnt even come up on an ultrasound! So keep trying, you will find your way. But I know how hard it is, its the hardest thing I have ever gone through in my life. Wishing you all the best.View Thread
I'm so glad others are talking about this. I also get physically sick how insurance companies don't cover any ttc treatments. We have spent 6000 this year on failed iuis. My hubby and I worked our asses off saving that money, and hope to have a baby before we run out of money completely. Just not fair.View Thread
Is anyone else living in silence to the rest of the world... I continue to think about the pros and cons of family and friends knowing exactly whats going on with me. They have to wonder why I am isolating, taking time off from work, declining wine, crying, skipping baby showers and weddings. I feel like I am living this lie, and I don't know how to share it with anyone. I count on my husband to lean on, and visa versa. I just feel like I want to scream out to the world what is going on in my body, but i'm just too scared to tell anyone. What if.....(insert every bad scenario)...While people are blogging about there families, I read them in tears.
Thank you for listening to me, and allowing me to break some silence.
get your primary care doc to prescribe you a month of Clomid over the phone, its like 24 dollars (they might do it over the phone)
Check and see if there is a Infertility Support Group in your area, they are experts. Most poeple, if they have insurance, do not have coverage and its out of pocket. Does you husband take a multivitamin. How is both of your BMI, may want to do some exercise together and add veggies to your diet, ect. Good luck!View Thread
I am in the same boat. 35-40 day cycles, OPK says O happens on day 23, but fertility monitor (Ovacue) says its around day 14?? Did a HSG, no blockage, tried Clomid one cycle, no sucess. Going to try that again this cycle, after taking this cycle off. Seems like it takes forever for another O with these long cycles, which makes TTC so much harder! My doc says that as long as I am getting periods (the length of them really doesnt matter) all should be good. I do notice however that my periods are much heavier and cramping is alot worse with these longer cycles.View Thread
