Just a forewarning to those reading, there will likely (hopefully) be PgAL'ers and PAL'ers chiming in on this thread.
This afternoon was the consult with the RE. Overall it went well. They were pretty optimistic, which I haven't been in months...so that was good to see.
They said my CD3 (ish) numbers looked good. They loved my FSH of 5.2 . Of course they went over my pregnancy and OB history...which includes a hysteroscopy and fibroid removal prior to all my pregnancies. When they heard the word fibroid they wanted to do a u/s on the spot. Lucky me, dildo cam! They found one small abnormality (8mm) that they want to investigate via another hysteroscopy (yeehaw!). The good news from that u/s though is that I looked great for follies! Right side she counted 20. No idea what normal is, but the RE had a huge smile on her face and said that was great. On the left she was able to answer my question about whether I'd ovulated. Yup. Huge freaking CL cyst...and about 5 follies visible in that ovary (more were probably obscured by the cyst). Doctors orders to DTD tonight. Best doctors orders I've ever gotten
Basically the plan moving forward is: DH does SA, though they are just doing it to cover all the bases as they know we can conceive. I get to do another hysteroscopy (and D&C if they see stuff they want outta there) and then they were suggesting clomid (and potentially IUI with that, but I need to check with insurance as I don't think they cover IUI or IVF...they should cover the meds and the procedures though).
Decision time, and I'd love your input. Quick background for those on mobile who don't know my situation. I'm 36. DH is deploying for six or so months in November. I've been back on TTCAL since late November, seven plus months.
Option 1 for hysteroscopy: In operating room. Pluses: If there's an issue, quite likely there is a small fibroid given my history, they remove it on the spot. General anesthesia is also a plus. Minuses: I'd have to be on BCP for a cycle so they can make sure they aren't doing in post-o...which would mean missing a TTC cycle before he hits the high seas.
Option2: Hysteroscopy in doctors office. Pluses: No BCP and no missed cycle TTC. Minuses: If there is something to be removed a D&C will need to happen anyways.
ETA: Anyone know how to indicate on FF that u/s confirmed O?
