New girl in town

Hi all. Me and my DH have being TTC for a year. We just started getting fertility counseling. Two days ago i had my HSG and it revealed one blocked tube. I was actually devastated. So now we will complete other tests and then sit with a councilor. 

I’m in a new city, with my newish DH with a new job. I’m 34 and we have a sweet fur baby (mini poodle). 

I am hoping for the best but afraid to be too hopeful.

  • Thanks for the encouragement! The one tube didn’t unclear. I’m nervous about what this will mean but it seems like I’m just at the beginning of this process. 
  • Don’t lose hope! My cousin and sister inlaw got pregnant with one tube with no treatments either! But again we are here :) Keep your head up. Hopefully it’s an easy fix. I had a girlfriend try for a year and no luck. Finally got testing to find out her husband had an issue where he didn’t release a perm and it wasn’t fixable. They did iui and poof she’s pregnant with twins. Now everything is that easy but at least with testing you can rule some things out.

  • @Knottie1467427259 Welcome and sorry you find yourself on this board. It sucks about the blocked tube! Have you done your CD 3 testing (FSH, AMH, etc) how was everything looking there? Also did your DH get his semen analysis yet? That’s super important Bc men are easy to rule out if his analysis is good! I know It seems like mountain of tests but hopefully you will get answers soon. From start of tests to finish took us a little less than a month before they said it’s straight to IVF. we have MFI and I had a septate uterus that I just Had surgery on.
    Since you just got your Hsg is your Saline sono next?

  • My DH hasn’t gotten his semen analysis yet. Once that’s done, we will meet with our specialist. I am not sure about the saline sono. I imagine there will be more tests to look further into the blockage since the HSG doesn’t give too much detail.  @ndz2018, I hope you are healing well after surgery. Do you have a next move planned? 

    @FutureMrsMerati Thanks for the warm welcome.

    @Knottie1467427259 I highly recommend getting DH’s SA ASAP. And luckily when they give their sample you get results within hours, at least at our clinic we did and I have Heard for others their clinic did as well.
    I’m going tomorrow at 2 for my post op appointment to make sure everything looks good. They put me on Estradriol for a month to help my lining grow back then in 2/13 I start progestrone pill for 7 days to trick my body into thinking it O’d. After I stop both pill on 2/19 I should get AF 3-5 days after i stop the pills. Once I get AF I begin To FET process we have 5 PGS normal embryos waiting for us :) it’s been quite the jounrey and I’m excited and nervous that it’s almost time. I’ll tell you one thing having the bump and the support from the ladies on here had made this jounrey so much easier. GL and I hope You get answers soon.

  • @ndz2018 I am so happy to here that you are getting close to what you have moving towards! It really gives me hope. I am trying not to kill my DH for not doing SA right NOW! His off days are Monday and Tuesday to he better get his act together.

  • I'm sorry you find yourself here. It seems as though you and I are in similar parts of the journey and I'm curious as to where you're at now. I had my HSG end of January that showed I had one blocked tube and my DH had his SA 2/14 which showed he had EXTREMELY low sperm count. My RE wants me to do a Hysteroscopy to try and unblock my tube, so I am doing that on Thursday! 
    Hope you've had some encouraging test results!
