Hello everyone... I don't have kids yet, I miscarried 14 months ago (and that time I was preg on my first cycle trying), and have been trying to get pregnant ever since with no luck. I am only 30 years old.
I have now had the day 3 hormone panel, came back fine. I had the HSG exam, which was traumatizing and painful, and it came back with my fallopian tubes fine too.
I always have a 28 or 29 day cycle. I know I ovulate every cycle through cystal clear ovulatory signals (lots of EWCM and a temp spike), and I also have started using those OPKs and I clearly am ovulating.
My husband's sperm results are very high across the board.
So I've been diagnosed with "unexplained infertility". Not knowing what is wrong with me or if I will ever become a mother is just killing me.
The only thing that I sense is wrong: Starting a few months ago I've had brown spotting during my luteal phase. Starting around 8 or 9 DPO and until I get my period on 14 DPO.
So could this be impacting implantation? My theory (that my doc shrugs off) is sperm meets egg every month but implantation isn't happening because of this spotting
Here is my question: any tips for stopping the spotting during the LP?
I have tried raspberry leaf tea, and will keep drinking it because I've noticed cycles when I drink it more I have less spotting. Should I try progesterone cream? I want to try acupuncture but I'm scared because it's SO expensive.
Also, any book recommendations on the anxiety and depression I am experiencing would be appreciated as well... this is by far the hardest experience of my whole life and I just don't know what to do anymore. I am so deeply unhappy and hopeless feeling lately. I've started psychotherapy but I don't know if it is helping.
Thanks so much in advance, ladies...
