Introducing myself - New member — The Bump

Introducing myself - New member

Hello, I’d like to introduce myself here.  I was married last year and my DH and I started trying right away since I was 35.  After trying for a year we are having our first IUI hopefully this August.  I’ve been diagnosed as having anovulation, which I had suspected since I was a teenager due to my irregular periods.  DH also has issues with delayed ejaculation, so between the two issues we are moving to letrozole, trigger, and IUI.  I’ve had my first round of meds and I go in tomorrow to see how the follicles are doing.  FX!

My doctor was sure that I had PCOS since I am overweight and my periods have always been irregular (and awful) but all tests have come back normal.  No one else in my family has ever had any issues, and indeed they all have tons of children (3-6 per family). 

I try to be upbeat about the IUI process, but some days it really gets me down.  DH is very supportive and has dreams about us having children (always girls) so I hope one day it comes true.
