Hi,


I do think switching doctors is a good idea, if one can't get you pregnant after several tries - then find another one with better success rates.


Can I ask what you are getting an x-ray for?

I requested an HSG as this was my 3rd D/IUI with no positive results yet. I see no need in wasting time or money if I have a blockage that can be fixed. It's better to be safe than sorry and I would rather have the piece of mind. I guess I would just like something to blame for all my BFN'S:( I would love to hear that theres something clogging the pipes (so to speak) that way I can obsess about something other than the timing, donor choice, etc. Plus Doc says she can code it differently so insurance will cover it, so why not go for it right?? I will be sure to keep everyone posted when I find out the results:)

Our RE told me to get the HSG before he would work with me at all. Did your doctor not suggest this first?


BTW, I guess I am in the same boat with repeated BFNs....I've had one failed IUI and 3 failed IVF transfers. I'm now pregnant, but its not yet defined as a "clinical pregnancy" - have to wait for the first sonogram for that, to see if the pregnancy is viable.

My Doc SUCKS!!! When I suggested back 2 back IUI's, she said no. When I suggested clomid, trigger, ANYTHING...she said no. She has been having me do standard OPK's and calling when I get my surge Obviously, none of that has worked for me. It doesn't help that I am using donor sperm so the timing has to be perfect (Which would make more sense to do the trigger!) Her reasoning is I ovulate on my own and that I have had 3 children with no problems. Which is STUPID as my last child was 10 years ago and I was still a young thang! LOL I am now at that critical age where my eggs do not want to listen! So, I was the one that suggested the HSG and, to my suprise, she agreed. The reason I am not switching Docs yet is that I heard the new DR. I want to see is not that keen on HSG and that I would have to pull some strings to get one. So I figured since this DR. already agreed, then I would go ahead with it. Then, next month, I plan on switching if I don't hear what I want to hear from my current DR. At least clomid and a trigger!!!! That seems to be the norm with EVERYONE!! Anywho, that's my story:) Hopefully it will all work out for me soon, but I'm not really a patient person so we'll see how long I can hold out!! CONGRATS ON YOUR BFP!! STICKY VIBES HEADIN' YOUR WAY!!!!!!

Are you seeing regular ob/gyns or reproductive endocrinologists?


The doctor you have now sounds inflexible. I don't know how reliable OPKs are. I never had much success in using them myself. Also, if a woman has polycystic ovarian syndrome, the OPKs will always register positive. They just aren't reliable. I think they are as prone to error as home pregnancy tests. Perhaps your doctor is too lazy to bother with any other protocol?


I've heard of women having success using Clomid and IUI. Although Clomid is not a drug you want to take for very long. If I use it, I'll stay on it 3-6 months max. I heard it can damage uterine lining if you use this drug for too long. We need the uterine lining to maintain a pregnancy.
