So we're just starting our IF journey and I'm finding it really difficult. I've got no one in all my family and friends that has had to deal with IF so I'm so happy this board is here.
We've completed our first round of testing after a year and a half of trying with no success. We just had our follow up appointment yesterday afternoon and it felt like a punch in the gut. DH's results came back showing a very low sperm count so now he's been referred to a urologist to try to find out what's going on. After my CD21 and CD3 blood tests as well as an HSG, it came back showing that I don't ovulate. After they find out what's going on with his sperm count, then they're starting me on Clomid + some trigger shot (I don't remember what he said the name was) to try to get me to ovulate. Our doctor suggested that we try it "naturally" for a few cycles to see if that helps but if not, we're off to start our first IUI treatment. Plus, as I was getting ready to leave for work this morning, I found out that my great grandmother passed away last night. I've been having a really hard time trying to keep it together today at work. I'm just ready for some good news but I have a feeling that our journey is just beginning.
Thanks for listening everyone. I just really needed to vent cause I felt like I was going to implode.
