Hi, everyone! My husband and I are both 31 and started TTC in 2013. In March of 2014 I had a miscarriage and then couldn’t get pregnant again afterward. We finally decided to see an RE in December of 2014. We were diagnosed with unexplained/slight male factor infertility. I had a hysteroscopy to remove polyps from my uterus in February of 2015. I was all set to start my first IUI cycle that June, but tested the day before my period was due and found out I was pregnant with my now 2-year-old son.
We started trying for baby #2 in January of last year and it’s been pretty much the same story, minus a baby. I got pregnant almost immediately, miscarried at 6 weeks, and haven’t been able to get pregnant again since. My husband’s sperm count and motility have increased a ton since last time he was tested, but his morphology is only 1%. I had another HSG and hysteroscopy to remove polyps in March and had my first IUI with injectables cycle in June, which failed despite things going “as perfectly as possible” according to my RE. I developed a cyst that delayed my second IUI cycle. Finally started injectables again and had a much better response this time (one follicle at 19mm, two at 16mm, and two at 15mm). I’m currently at 12dpo and have all the usual symptoms of AF being on her way, including a bfn this morning. I’m losing hope that this is going to work for us, and my insurance just eliminated IVF coverage as of January 1st.
Anyway, just looking to be able to discuss this journey with women who get it, because I really don’t have anyone in my life other than my husband who understands what this is like, and our families are of the “just relax and it will happen” mentality, which is infuriating.
