D/IUI #1-7 = BFN, D/IUI #8 10-14-08 = BFN
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?
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.
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.
I am sorry.
