No cycle after Provera

Hello all,

Well, DH and I had our first Infertility Specialist appointment at the beginning of the month. The doctor is really nice and after talking with him, performing lab tests, and an ultrasound; we are preparing for IUI. I took Provera to start my cycle and my last day was Tuesday, June 15. I have taken Provera in the past and have usually started my cycle a few days after. Not this time...

I have been having weird spotting (last night and today) and now I am really confused. I have also never had spotting before my cycle. I went in to the hospital today and took a pregnancy test (blood) and am awaiting the results. So, I am really hoping that it is positive. If not, I am hoping that I start my full cycle tomorrow. Again, I am just really hoping for a positive and hopefully healthy results.

PLEASE PRAY EVERYONE!

Baby dust on us all!!

Thanks for the kind words. We have only been "officially" TTC for two cycles. But, since I have PCOS my OB Gyn referred us to the Fertility Clinic immediately. I have never had a regular cycle unless I was on the pill.

Everything looks ok according to the fertility doctor, but if we aren't pregnant we will definitely have to use Clomid/IUI to assist with getting there.

It is all a little daunting. It's like you can control everything, except this. It also doesn't help that I am a perfectionist, so I was just hoping that if I timed everything right (temperature/OPK's/BD at the right time) that I would get pregnant right away. But, since PCOS can screw everything up, including BBT, we are just hoping that with the doctor's assistance, it will make it easier.

I just spoke with the doctor and it is looking like I actually didn't O. (SIGH) So, the next steps are HSG (anyone had this??) and then an Ultrasound then my first round of Clomid.

Just wanted to update you all.

Forgive me because I'm a bit confused. Why did doc give you provera if he wasn't sure whether or not you O'd? You've taken provera before so I'm assuming you're used to anovulatory cycles. I've taken more provera in my life than I can keep track of so I understand the anxiousness when waiting for AF. Has the hag showed for you yet?


I had an HSG last year and it was an overall easy process for me. You have dye injected into your uterus and it flows through your fallopian tubes; if there is any blockage, the dye will either stay contained in your tubes or it will flush out the blockage. You have a catheter inserted up through your cervix and into your uterus, followed by the injection of the dye. They simultaneously take x-ray images of your lower abdomen. The procedure itself is less than 15 minutes (including time to put the catheter in) and the most pain you should experience is cramping and/or slight discomfort. This varies and also depends on your pain tolerance. I took a couple Motrin about 30 minutes before and I felt fine. I had DH go with me for support and it was very nice having him hold my hand throughout it. Bring a pad with you because the dye will leak out (and the pads they provide are just so darn bulky!) You'll have to abstain 24-48 hours before the procedure, but it's free reign BD as soon as it's done!
