What is your diagnosis (if you have one)?
Just curious. I'm still dumbfounded by the whole concept that you can get pregnant easily the first time, only to struggle the next. I know first hand it can happen, yet it still suprises me to see it.
I don't have a complete official one yet. Still in the testing stages with the RE.
It went from unexplained to diminished ovarian reserve and hostile CM. I've had issues with fibroids and scar tissue from the c-section as well.
I've got a whole bevy of issues!
We don't have a formal diagnosis, but everything points to PCOS (long/irregular cycles, multiple follices on U/S, etc). Also maybe some mild MF (low volume, too much coagulation?), but that remains to be seen.
Personally, I'm convinced that I got PG easily the first time b/c I had been on the pill for 8 yrs. I was only on my second cycle off of it, and I swear my body was tricked into thinking I was more regular.
I got the official "unexplained 2if" diagnosis right after the RE did testing.
The only thing that I had going on was random annovulation All my tests came back clear and the SA was perfect.
I've been diagnosed with Diminshing Ovarian Reserve (DOR) and also Stage ll Endometriosis....how in the world I ever conceived DD#1 is simply a miracle!
No real diagnosis.
DD and DS were easily conceived so we thought there would be no issue TTC #3 - surprise! It took us 14 months to get a BFP only to lose it very early on. It took us another 11 months to get a BFP and we needed Clomid and acupuncture to get it. My CD 3 bloodwork and u/s showed no issues.
Dr said she thought my ovulations were just not "strong" enough suddenly in order to achieve and sustain a pregnancy. I had never heard it before but....
I got PG with DS first month off BCP. I had him via c-sec. Since then, I felt like something was different, I was having really sharp pains and not just during ovulation. So after trying for about a year for #2, I had a HSG and an U/S and my RE noticed a dark spot and didn't think it was a follicle. I went back to my OB and told her, she did an U/S and saw it too. She started to do a lapo and ended up having to remove both my tubes (one had endo and the other had a paratubal cyst). I also have a DOR. I always wonder if my tubes were like this before DS and if they were he was a miracle. So now we are doing IVF.
mich2004bride:Nothing! The dr. is perplexed as well as us!!
This! "Unexplained" secondary IF. SUCKS!
Kelly, Mom to Christopher Shannon 9.27.06, Catherine Quinn 2.24.09, Trey Barton lost on 12.28.09, Therese Barton lost on 6.10.10, Joseph Sullivan 7.23.11, and our latest, Victoria Maren 11.15.12
Secondary infertility success with IVF, then two losses, one at 14 weeks and one at 10 weeks, then success with IUI and then just pure, crazy luck. Expecting our fifth in May as the result of a FET.
This Cluttered Life
Unexplained - which makes this whole thing harder. I constantly wonder if it was completely random that I got pg with #1 since for #2, I cannot seem to get pg to save my life. MH does have low morph so we have to do ICSI for IVF but that cannot be the only reason since I have an 85-90% fert rate with ICSI and my 3 IVFs have been huge fails. Also, I don't know if MH's morph was an issue with #1 or, again, we just got lucky.
It's crazy and the part that kills me most is people I know that had horrible difficulty conceiving #1 but then have a surprise BFP with #2 (many friends have had that happen). While I'm so happy for them, I find it so ironic that I seem to have had the opposite thing happen.
This...so, to TTC #2, I took Clomid. After a little over a year on Clomid, decided to let it go, and not try and just accept DS will be an only child. Two months later, got my BFP!!! So, don't know what to expect to TTC #3...
