Hi! Like the rest of you on this board I'm struggling with infertility. Here's some background on me and our struggle (sorry it's so long):
DH and I waited until we were financially stable and got a good jump start on home renovations before TTC. It's been 9 months and nothing. I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2002 and a cyst severed one of my tubes. Recently, I had an HSG done and they got a little dye leakage from my tube, but they said it's "partially blocked and/or twisted. A vaginal ultrasound was done and I'm not ovulating and was diagnosed with PCOS. I was referred to a fertility specialist and he said he "thinks" my tube is fine and that I might have a mild case of PCOS. Went through the first round of Clomid this month and was devastated yesterday with the news that the Clomid worked great for the left side...the one that has no plumbing. The right side is apparently not as healthy of an ovary and only had one follicle at 14mm. Now they are discussing injectables for next month. I did OK on the Clomid...a little dizzy, more emotional but I handled it well...I think. I am worried how bad the side effects are going to be for the injectables!
It's just all so overwhelming and I'm so sick of hearing things like "relax, it'll happen" and "don't worry, just give it time". DH tries to be reassuring, but we all know that there's nothing anyone can say right now to make us feel any better. I guess I just need some support and I know the women on this board can understand exactly what I'm thinking and feeling since you are going through it too.
Thanks for reading and baby dust to all!
