My back story...
My husband and I are 34 years old. We have been TTC since 2006 (informally since 2005). After many months of charting, OPKs, and correctly timed intercourse we finally started asking questions of my regular doctor. It's all a little bit of a blur and I wish I would have documented things better.
My hormones were tested. All were normal.
HSG. Tubes open.
I had laparoscopic surgery. Some endometriosis was removed, not enough to cause infertility.
I underwent one unmedicated IUI.
Hubby was still thinking that this was no big deal and I was probably just getting myself too worked up. It would happen and we just needed to quit thinking about it. Which just stressed me out more.
Late last year, he decided he was ready to dig deeper and really TRY. Obviously, what we were doing wasn't working. I made an appointment with the OBGYN that did the 1st IUI and he actually agreed to try 3 rounds of clomid/IUI without seeing me first. None of my labs had changed significantly.
January - clomid with cancelled IUI. I never got a positive OPK
February - clomid, HSG injection trigger, day 10 ultrasound, IUI = Unsuccessful
March - clomid, HSG injection trigger, day 10 ultrasound, IUI, progesterone = Unsuccessful
April - day three labs done, everything came back normal. Referred to RE. Take this month off due to thinning lining.
What did you look for in a RE?
I did look at the SART.org website and tried to make sense of all the numbers. Most clinics don't list their price or success rate on their website. This just seems wrong.
Thanks in advance!
My RE just happened to be the only one in town but it also turned out that we couldn't have lived in a in a better town because he is one of the best in Oregon.
Have your husband been tested? I did not see that mentioned in your post. As, My husband and I tried for four years and it turned out to be male factor infertility.
