I have been here a few times since last year when I turned 40 and have lurked for awhile.
We've been ttc'ing for about 10 years (off & on) and have been to fertility docs. The first one (a few years ago) turned out to be such a quack in my opinion! He tried me on Clomid for a few months and nothing - then told me "I knew it wouldn't work, you need to loose weight." That really discouraged us! He refused to do an HSG because he said it would "hurt too much" and he told me I had a tipped uterus too. Finally in Septmber '05 we found our current doctor and I'm so greatful! We did the HSG (and it didn't hurt that much) and found out that my left tube was blocked (and needed to be cut - no way to save it). AND I don't have a tipped uterus either!! Right after my lap to cut the left tube - we did Clomid and one IUI which did not work; last cycle we tried injections and an IUI that also didn't work. This cycle we are again trying injections and IUI this week (I think - am waiting to hear from the Doc).
I had a sonogram this morning and there was 18 follies on my right ovary. I'm hoping this is good and we'll be successful this time around!
Anyone in the same boat as me? I'll be 41 in April and we've never been able to get pregnant.
Hope you don't mind me joining your group!
