Hi everyone! I used to post a little bit on the TTGP board in the past, but I am thinking that this board is going to be better suited for me now. I have lurked in the past over here a bit, but am very familiar with the ways of the bump.
Here is my background: I am 25, DH is 32 and we have been officially TTC since July 2013. We have been together since 2010, and we got married in May of 2012. I say officially because I got my Paraguard IUD removed in May 2013, an we had sex in my suspected FW from the get go. We live in Iowa, and we work together in real estate (self-employed). We have a fluffy shelter cat that is a friendly/brat and a silly golden retriever that I love dearly (he is in my avatar).
Regarding TTC: I temp, check my CM (which isn't very helpful for me, but I do it regardless), use OPK's and we use PreSeed now. We typically have sex ED -5 until +2, some cycles only EOD.
My RE rant/where I need help from you lovely ladies: I had my first visit with my RE last month. It was determined that my ovaries are fine, I ovulate regularly, and that I have plenty of follicles. My bloodworm is all good, nothing of concern there. DH has plenty of healthy sperm. Initially, my ultrasound of my uterus was abnormal and showed some sort of blockage towards my cervix. I had an appointment on Monday, where they did an ultrasound again and the blockage was gone (I also passed A LOT of clots with this past cycle). This was never really addressed why this happened, if it was normal, but it had never happened in the past so doc wrote it off as a fluke. Today I go in for a HSG, which I am nervous for.
I don't know that I really like my current RE, she has no sense of humor and doesn't really make me feel comfortable/very informed. I am very annoyed because Monday when I went in for the ultrasound, I was supposed to get the FemVue as well, but my RE forgot to schedule it/order supplies for it. This sounds off to me, but now I have to make a second trip today for the HSG instead.
Assuming the results of my HSG are normal, my doctor wants to move on to Clomid and IUI. Another reason I am leery of my RE is she wrote me a script for Clomid at my Monday appointment and didn't mention any talk of monitoring. I really don't want to take any medications, unless it is absolutely necessary. Is it possible to do IUI's without medication? Or is that pointless?
I know this has been kind of long, but I wanted to give a pretty informative intro! I look forward to getting to know everyone here and adding my insight to the topics. I am an open book, so feel free to ask any questions!
