Hi! Introducing myself (loss mentioned)

Hi everyone, I'm new to the board and am looking forward to all the support I've found here so far. 
A little about me and my story...
I'm 32, my DH is 41. We have been TTC for about 2.5 years. I've been seeing an RE for a year now. Part of our struggles have been do to hormone imbalances I have. I've been taking meds since January to regulate them. I also have endometriosis which has caused one of my Fallopian tubes to close because of adhesions.
We conceived this past spring without any intervention except my medication, but lost the baby at 8.5 weeks in June. We have been trying on our own since, but have had no luck and decided to finally go ahead with IUI. I just finished 5 days of clomid this week and am supposed to take my ovidrel trigger tonight, with my first IUI procedure scheduled for Sunday morning. I'm so nervous! Any words of encouragement would be appreciated!!

  • Hi! Welcome to the community! Sorry that IF brought you hear, but I think you will find a lot of support. Looks like we are on the same cycle, I also trigger tonight and have my IUI on Sunday morning! This will be my fifth, don't be nervous, its quick and easy. The hardest part is the two week wait afterwards. Thinking positive thoughts for you, hopefully we can both get BFP this month :smile:
  • @smittyswifey ; Welcome! My wife and I will be using IUI to TTC starting this month (if our insurance decides not to screw us over).  This is a great place to find support through this difficult time.  Sending you good wishes for your first (and hopefully only) IUI! xo
  • @smittyswife   Welcome. Sorry to hear about your loss and that you find yourself here..unfortunately we’re that straight to IVF couple so no advice here on IUIs. FX for you this weekend.
  • Thank you!! I'm sure the next two weeks are going to be torture. Glad to know I'm not alone! Good luck to you!
  • GL today!!!  I am sorry for your loss. ❤  We were also straight to ivf based on our dx, but fx iui is the answer for you!!!! So exciting!

    10/16 - azoo dx confirmed. more bw + TRUS to determine differential dx. 3/17 - genetic labs, renal & repeat scrotal u/s.
    No known genetic cause found. Vas tubes appear absent on repeat exam. DH started Clomid in prep for MESA/TESE
    4/17 - Initial RE Consult for me. | DH's F/U bw shows great T response! but also elevated FSH, making the possibility
    of a successful vas reconstruction less likely, IHHO. | Waiting for DH's exploratory/retrieval attempt till after 06/06/17.

  • Hi and welcome. I know someone who was successful with one IUI when conceiving her 2nd even though she required IVF (several rounds) for her 1st so anything is possible in my opinion. Fx for you!
