So, I set up a consult with the other fertility clinic in town, because I'm getting so frustrated. I feel like our RE won't level with us about our chances, and won't give us straight answers about our diagnosis. I have a blocked tube, then I don't. I have extensive endometriosis, then it's mild.
I asked DH to go with me, because I get overwhelmed when I need to process a lot of spoken information very quickly (mild learning disability). He started making jokes about how he was no help because he was just going to read a book while he was there anyway. That's when the bawling, mouth open, ugly crying started, I am very, very not up for jokes right now.
Luckily he backpedaled and apologized right away, but I basically had to lay it on the line. I have been through an abusive upbringing, unemployment, an eating disorder, a divorce, you name it. IF is the worst thing I've ever been through, because it just goes on and on. There's no fix and no relief.
So, here's hoping the new RE helps. At the very least, I want somebody to tell us the truth so that if parenthood isn't in our future, we can let go and move on.
Me: 38 DH: 40 TTC#1 (and likely only) since 9/13. Saw RE 5/14, SA good, AMH 2.36, FSH 7.2, estradiol 69.6 indicating good egg reserve. Using OPKs. First Letrozole cycle 6/14, a burst cyst and a BFN. Second Letrozole cycle 7/14, BFN.
Update 11/14 - had laparoscopy 10/28, good news is that my uterus and left tube look good, and they were able to drain the cyst on my left ovary. Bad news is that right tube and ovary have endo and scar tissue, so they're pretty useless.. Best news is that we finally have some answers and a path forward. Taking 7.5 mg letrozole CD 2-6 to put that good left ovary through its paces.
UPDATE 2/2015 - We switched to another fertility clinic, but fortunately we don't have to start all over. We're doing two cycles of Clomid plus IUI, if neither of those take, we'll do IVF in April, potentially with ICSI. (DH's SA has gone downhill, likely due to excessive exercise.) IUI#1 2/25/15....
