After trying to conceive for 2 years I found out I had an overactive thyroid with nodules. Biopsies of nodules/tumors were inconclusive so surgery performed on 2/12/09 (my 33rd bday) which turned out to be positive for Cancer. Radiation soon followed with a series of certain tests which required us to wait to conceive. When we finally received clearance to to start trying 6 months of Clomid 100mcg did not work. Much to our surprise, testing of past cancer needed to be done again and only to be told again the cancer either returned and or radiation did not clear it completely. So radiation again in 2011 and retesting again in March shows completely negative! I am happy with the results but I have decided not to wait to try to conceive as I am now 36 years old. I feel my husband is reluctant to have sex and he refuses to talk. I am anticipating another HSG exam with next months period to see if my one RFT is open and clear. I try to not stress and or worry but I am starting to feel like giving up. At times I feel this mid low right side pain during my mid cycle month which brings me back to feeling that it is still possible! I can only hope for the best. Thanks for letting me vent and hope your eyes don't hurt from reading this. Thank you, Still Trying and Waiting!View Thread
OMG! HSG went great and my RFT is open and perfectly clear!! Dr said the was no need to tilt or turn my pelvis as fluid just moved so freely. I am so happy and excited, my prayers have been answered. We can now go ahead and TTC. Dr also says chances increase by 30-40% with having HSG done. Next week I will see him again for the start of new fertility drug. I feel so blessed and now I finally feel peace with no stress or worries. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason.View Thread
Hello.. wow, you're right almost the same. I to am taking Levothyroxine 125mcg. I am scheduled for the HSG exam Tuesday which I'm praying will be normal. I wondered often if acupuncture is beneficial. I hear so many conflicting stories. Does it hurt? I too am feeling rushed to get prego and now my hubby says he does not want any children after age 45. I was in shock after his statement only because he will be 45 on the 29th. I think he is just frustrated and really did not mean to say that to me especially because he knows about the HSG exam. Well I wanted to thank you for responding. Knowing I am not the only on and that there's still hope makes me feel better. I often been told that when I stop trying, that's when it will happen. I feel that it's possibly true. I will look into acupuncture soon but please let me know how it works out for you. Again, thank you. God bless you. ttyl.View Thread
After 6 months of trying you should seek advise from your GYN. There are a lot of tips like charting as well as blood work testing for hormones that can help your chances instead of waiting another 6 months. I made the mistake of waiting and now I am 36. I finally talked to my dr at the age of 33, find out I did have a thyroid disease which then ended up needing surgery, radiation and medication. In between all of the testing I had no choice but to wait and now we are trying again. Don't wait too long.View Thread
