Almost 40...New here TTC after 4 MC

I took about a year off TTC after having several uterine fibroids removed. It took about 3 months to get back on a regular cycle. I'll be 40 in February. My cycles run about 38-40 days and I ovulate regularly. I'm on cd43 right now with two BFNs. I haven't been able to get a very good basal read because I've been sick for about 3 days and running a low grade fever. I'm not feeling the usual nausea, bloated, breast pain, weepiness that I usually feel so I'm thinking I'm not pregnant. Just waiting for AF now so I can start charting again.

I have a 17 year old and been TTC on and off for about 12 years. Long journey from hyperthyroidism, fibroids and 4 MC.

I was on Propylthiouracil to control my hyperthyroidism. It helped tremendously and brought it to normal.

I'm nervous about my test on Wednesday, but from everything I'm reading online about the procedure I'm thinking it will be great to ring in the New Year with squeaky clean pipes. :smileytongue:

I'm on synthroid, too.

I have had the dye test. I saw some postings from a few that said it hurt terribly like they were blowing out your tubes. Not mine and I think for most it is about as bad as a Pap. I did double up on the ibuprofen just in case. One tip if you are into this kind of thing: Ask for a copy of your films. I thought it was pretty cool to study my own tubes in the privacy of home. And one more benefit mentioned on the boards...the 3 months post-test are known to have better bfp rates...sort of cleans out the pipes I guess. Good luck!

Thx Pixie!

CD44 still no AF and poas a couple of hours ago and it was neg. It's stuck. :smileytongue:

My last MC was 3 years ago, my hyperthyroidism is under control and my surgery to remove all the fibroids has healed up. We've been TTCing since May. My doc has scheduled me a Hysterosalpingogram to make sure my uterine cavity is sound before she will put me on Clomid (me thinks I'm ovulating too late). We're just waiting for me to AF so I can run over and have the test done. Has anyone had this done??
