As for me, I *might* be back in the game again. I just finished my clomid challenge test which showed very good ovarian reserve once again. I also had a repeat HSG to make sure my tubes are clear after my ectopic in January and that looked good as well. So the RE is once again optimistic about my chances. I don't quite know why after 6 losses but he is.
So that leaves me with 2 choices if I want to continue. RE suggests IVF which will by pass the tubes (still suspect of scarring around tubes because of the ectopic). He thinks this is my best bet because then he can see the quality of the embryos. Of course, we have already had 2 IVF cycles with beautiful embryos that ended with chemical pg's so I don't kow that this is the answer for me. I just still feel like something else is amiss here and spending $10,000 isn't going to solve it.
The other option is IUI again. We know I can get pg that way but RE recommends having a laproscope to make sure there is no scar tissue prior to that. I told him I had had four already and nothing was found. He said the ectopic could have changed something. I don't mind laproscopies at all and tolerate them very well but again, I don't think he will find anything.
So I have a consult with RE on the 9th to discuss all possible treatments. I do not think I will pursue anything unless he can offer something that is different that what we have done. He has mentioned a variety of things from HCG boosters to antibiotics but I have not discussed them at length.
I am having a very difficult time determining if I want to continue at all. Sometimes I just want to get on with my life and other times, I REALLY want another baby.
Well, that's it for me....
