I'm finally so frustrated that I've decided to stop lurking around the boards and actually throw this out there to see if anyone else is in a similar boat.
We've been wanting kids forever but getting through college, stable careers, etc have delayed it a little bit. Then we finally started trying in April 2008. We're not patient people so we got OPK's and at home tests for semen (before we knew that's a joke) to try to get some answers since insurance doesn't test til 12 months. My husbands results were initially lower than normal and went to a specialist who said he's normal on all levels. My specialist determined I have MTHFR, a blood clotting disorder. Now I feel blessed that we didn't get pregnant because those usually end in miscarriages up to 8 months along.
Now we're on our 5th IUI, done clomid, have had over 12 internal ultrasounds, and numerous injections of hormones. Even though we've got another week left in the 2WW, I'm already getting PMSy and don't feel any different. Same as the last 19 cycles. The physical pain I can deal with, i.e. daily self injections including ice packs to prevent hematomas, multiple prescriptions, and various other pokes and prods. But the mental and emotional drain is going to get me in the end. Anyone else out there with MTHFR or words of advice? Is there more testing we should be doing? When do you move on to IVF when all signs are pointing that these IUIs should be working?
