Re: IF Testing and Treatment Week of 1/13

  • Thank you everyone for all of your HSG input! That makes me feel so much better! My friend scared me saying how painful hers was! I’ll definitely take Motrin before I go! 

    @inthewoods23 that’s AWESOME! So happy for you!! One step forward!!

  • @inthewoods23 omg omg omg! YAY!!! 3/31 happens to be a really special date in my family so I consider that a good sign for you, friend!!! 
    @abarr723 not going to lie, I've heard it can be increasingly uncomfortable if you have a blocked tube but for the most part it seems like it's just some bad cramping and maybe a little pinch when they insert the cath.

    @bows22 - No anesthesia - they said I can drive myself to and from ... and I even plan on going back to work afterwards for a meeting. Is this a bad idea? Should I reschedule my meeting?  :open_mouth:

  • @feather_heather if they said you can drive after I’m sure you will be fine to go to work. I was totally out so I couldn’t drive and then I took awhile to bounce back from the anesthesia, but the recovery from the actual procedure was nothing. Let us know how it goes!

  • @bows22 Ugh that’s so frustrating!!! Hope you are back from them with your results today!

    @inthewoods23 Yes this is the great news! So excited for you!

  • @bows22 Your RE office drives me nuts and I don't even go there!!! I'm so frustrated for you because they have to be able to tell you SOMETHING more about the results. Thankfully Friday will be here so soon, but still, it's besides the point! I am so ready for you to get some answers and a plan in place for how to move forward! I know you are so ready too, but I want this so badly for you, my friend!!

    @emeraldduchess oh my friend! I have so many things crossed for you!!! <3<3

    @bows22 ugh that is frustrating, but good to know not abnormal! 

    @emeraldduchess Keeping fingers crossed for you! 

    @kiki047 For antibiotics, I take them before an IUI as well to reduce the inflammation in my lining since I have endometritis caused by a bacteria that lives on my lining.

  • @mvt2003 YES!!!!! I was going to say that doctor offices usually have a private line for providers to call, so I was hoping they were able to get through! That goodness this is finally moving forward for you!!

  • @mvt2003 yay, so happy the pharmacy was able to work their magic and get things done!! I’m sure that’s a huge weight lifted!! 
    @emeraldduchess I’m so sorry, friend!! Sending you all the hugs!! 💜 Like others have said, do not feel like you need to apologize for venting...we are here for you!! Can you talk to your RE’s office and ask if they think taking a cycle off would affect things? That may help make your decision a little easier...and if it won’t affect anything, maybe taking a step back for a cycle will help to rejuvenate you and help you to get excited/ready to try again! I think we all have the fear of when we might hit the end of the road, or what that might look like! I truly hope this is not the end of the road for you and that you will get your THB!! I hope whatever you decide to do, that you will have a peace about it!!

  • @emeraldduchess I’m so glad you are feeling a little better! When I asked, I was told there is no limit with Letrozole like with Clomid. I am currently on my 11th total cycle using Letrozole. I hope you get some answers tomorrow that will help you decide how to proceed.

  • @mvt2003 how exciting! That’s amazing! I can only imagine how happy you must be! So with meds on the way, what’s you’re next step?! 

    @emeraldduchess I’m so sorry that you’re feeling so down. I know there’s nothing anyone can say that will make you feel better. But we understand. Maybe have a chat with DH? See how he feels, decide together what you should do. 


    Rant: Ugh it’s 445 am and I’m so anxious about my HSG in the morning. I haven’t slept. I know I may be freaking out over nothing. It’s just All the possibilities of things that could be wrong. *wooosaaa*. Guess I’ll try to close my eyes for a bit.

  • Diagnosis (if you've been): PCOS


    Status (WTO/TWW/TTA): never ending anovulatory cycle (CD 63)


    What are you doing this cycle? (Testing? Treatment?): I have a follow up appt with my naturopath at the end of February and if I haven’t had a period or ovulated since then we are going to switch up my protocol. Add in Berberine and saw palmetto and take out the myo inositol and PMS SAP


    How are things going?: I just got a temporary full time post job so I am very excited about that! I’m following my diet protocol about 95%! DH has started travelling for work and so I am a bit bummed that our TTC journey will be greatly affected by that but I’m also happy because when he is gone I can 100% focus on my health! My goal this next week  is to keep up with this thread! I keep lurking but never find myself posting in here


    Any questions?: what do you guys do for stress reduction? I do meditation and yoga but I’d love to do all I can!
