Hello ladies! I'm looking for any and all advice to help me get through this crazy mess.
First, a little about myself and my situation, my name is Amber I'm 22 years old and have one four year old daughter already. The hubster and I have been actively trying to conceive for a little over a year now. I have never ever ever had a normal period and ALL of my doctors since I was 16 were never bothered by this. I used to literally have two periods a year, now I haven't had a "period" in four years. Yes, FOUR. I had abnormal bleeding from having my IUD removed, I was told the lack of period for three out of four years was due to this as well as the abnormal bleeding which lasted a wonderful 3 long months of heavy disgustingness. Also, I got pregnant at 17 with my daughter while I was on birth control pills, hence the IUD. None of my family has ever had problems with infertility, on either side. My grandmother had 12 children, and my cousin just got pregnant with her fourth AFTER having her tubes tied.
Anyway, as stated, I was literally told two days ago that I am infertile. Dr. wants me to get an HSG, since there is no reason as to why I don't have a normal period or ovulation (all bloodwork and ultrasounds have came back clean), to find out if my tubes are closed, then he plans on giving me provera and clomid for 6 cycles, letting me do at home OPKs and I guess then reassessing and sending me for IVF which we can't afford on a military salary and our insurance will not cover any part of it besides some of the medication.
I was just looking for some people that I could relate to bc this is extremely upsetting for me and my husband. This would be our first child together and I've had baby fever ever since we got married.
Thanks for your help. (this vent was pretty sweet)
