So I responded to another post, but thought I'd introduce myself here. I have not made it public knowledge that I'm TTC, except to mention it to a dear friend of mine who had issues getting pregnant in the past, and is now currently pregnant.
My name is Gwenn and I was recently re-married. I am 36 years old and I had one tubal pregnancy in my 20's, but, thankfully, did not ruin my tubes. Other than that, I have never had any other pregnancy scares and honestly, have thought for years that I couldn't get pregnant. Last Tuesday I had surgery for endometriosis, which is mild. During the surgery, they ran the dye through my tubes and they are not blocked. Very good news! I actually started taking prenatal vitamins at the beginning of November. I am still on the Nuvaring through the end of this cycle, which is in about 2 weeks and I will also have my post-op visit. I may finish my last Nuvaring and then start trying, even though some say it may take several months for the body to start ovulating on its own. I've pretty much said that I'm not really willing to go through a bunch of infertility treatments because of the money, but I am willing to do hormone testing and my DH is willing to do sperm testing.
So I will see what my doctor has to say on the 11th and go from there!
