Hello everyone! I’ve been reading threads & lurking for a while. I decided to join in when I realized I couldn’t post anything when I was reading something related to my situation and couldn’t share my own story, to help support someone or get some support as well. Anyways, me and DH have been ttc for 7-8yrs. and only since January of this year we decided to get aggressive and get some help. This is ttc #1 for us and have been seen by OB and RE. I had HSG done, all kinds of blood tests, and u/s; all my stats came back normal (meaning both tubes are open, cycle is regular, I ovulate on my own, AMH is ok, & DH have normal SA ) so we’re put in “unexplained” infertility category. I had an iui done the first time last month and I was so heartbroken when I got bfn since I had all the symptoms (I thought it was pregnancy symptoms but all it was probably is from the medications I took -I was on 5mg of Letrozole cd3-8 and Ovidrel as my trigger shot). I’ve spent a lot of time researching, reading, lurking, and looking for some kind of explanations while on this ttc journey since I never thought in my mind I would be experiencing this (I’m the first in my family history who’s having a hard time getting pregnant). I wasn’t aware of many women (thousands by number -it was shocking to me!) going through TTC until I faced the same situation and started reading boards & forums, & looking for clinics.
I just had another iui again this month after the failed cycle and on my 2ww right now (with 1 more week to go). The plan is to do 3iui cycles and if all fails then we’ll move to ivf which I’m not really looking into it or not planning or even wishing to do it. I’m hoping and praying so hard to get my bfp before I end up quitting this ttc journey and just let go of this dream to be a mother someday.
I hope to get some inspirations in your own stories and maybe stay in a positive mind.
Good Luck to everyone ttc and hope we all don’t get tired of all the frustrations, depressions, and struggles in life that we all have to go through on daily basis including this sometimes tiring and heartbreaking journey.
