Future Clomid User
Ok, I'm new here. I've been looking up information for over a year now and I'm still so lost. I stopped my birth control when I was 18. I got married the first time when I was 19. My first husband and I couldn't concieve and it ended in a divorce anyway. I never gave much thought to going back on the pill, and so far I've never had any need to, because I HAVEN'T GOTTEN F-ING PREGNANT!!!
This now poses a great problem. I got married again. My husband is military and we are desperately TTC before he leaves.
Normal regular period for as long as I can remember. History of HPV, and 2 colposcopies.
July 2008-U/S was done and everything looked normal in my uterus.
August 2008-HSG was done. Hurt like a bitch, but once again, everything was normal.
Let's spring into the future 7 mths.....
March 2009-Post-coital test was done. Spermies are active and making it to where they need to be....NO BABY YET!!!
March 2009-Blood work and second U/S. U/S showed 11 egg follicles in R ovary and 10 in L ovary on day 17 of my cycle.
March 2009-S/A done. Awaiting results....
April 2009-Called the doctor yesterday AGAIN since he hadn't returned my previous phone call.
: Returned phone call from nurse tells me this: "No progesterone was present in your blood on day 17 of your cycle. We're going to start you on Clomid. Thank you for calling."
I had told the doctor I thought I had a progesterone deficency. I'm the most I've ever weighed in my life (156lbs compared to my normal 125lbs I was last year this time), I can't sleep and when I do manage to sleep I sleep in excess of 16 hrs, I'm depressed because I can't sleep, I'm constantly hungry, I am beyond PMDD (I send my husband running for the hills).
Can anyone here please explain this to me??? I have no idea what is going on, all I know is I want a baby and I've done all the pee strips, basal body crap, test this, test that, standing on the head, and dancing to the fertility goddess I can handle. I'm ready to scream......
