HSG & Clomid

Postby KAustin » Wed Aug 24, 2016 2:15 am

Hi. I have been trying to conceieve for 18 months. I have done 5 rounds of clomid (recently stopped). I had a HSG done last month and was really hoping this would be the month as I found out I had one blocked tube but he managed to push the dye through which opened it up (what a relief)! I am now about to start another round of clomid. This TTC is really starting to take its toll on me! Has anyone been through anything similar and got their BFP a month or two after? Would really appreciate the feed back. X

Hey there,im sorry to hear about ur problems,is not easy dealing with infertility.Same as you i have one blocked tube,I had 2hsg,one laparoscopic surgery and a histeroscopy and i still haven't gotten pregnant,I gave up trying natural and started IVF.
I read tons of stories where women gotten pregnant the month or the next month after the hsg but the truth is that it doesn't always work like that.
I hope you do get pregnant really soon.Good luck.

I'm sorry for you too! It's just so awful the waiting around. Every month is broken down to period, ovulation and then the dreaded TWW! 18 months of it you never think it's going to happen. I'm sure there are ladies out there that have been trying a lot longer.

Did they unblock your tube, or is it still blocked? Thanks for the reply.

They did unblock it but the bad part is that it keeps getting blocked again and again so not good.6 months after the lap I had a hsg wich showed a slightly blocked tube who was unblocked trough the hsg and since then I haven't tried it anymore.
I forgot how to live my life in the time I was TTC,it was hell but when i realized it won't happen i started to forget about Ttc and just take one day at a time,i started a diet and i started to have fun,going out and enjoy time with my husband.
18months or 5years it doesn't matter,the pain is the same.
Did your husband got tested?!what other tests have you had?!

That sounds so awful for you! I do understand what you are saying it doesn't matter about the time but the looking others getting pregnant and then another one in the same time you have been trying I'm just finding that part so hard. I gave cried every time someone has got pregnant! He has perfect swimmers so no problem there. I do also have an over active thyroid which was resolved last year but I was really ill with it.

Only time will tell but I'm just getting to the point where like you I need to live my life and not keep waiting as it makes it worse.

Hi ladies I hope you don't mind me jumping in, I'm due to start my second round of clomid due to one blocked tube and it's always nice to see I'm not alone , and have someone to ask advice from, did clomid affect your cycle lenght or period at all ? My first month on clomid my cycle was 4 days longer and AF is so light I don't even need to use a tampon .

Sophia i never took clomid but yes it can affect ur cycle length.Clomid helps you ovulate and if you ovulate later than usual than ur period will be later than usual.For example if you normally you would ovulate on cd14 and ur lp 14days than ur period is due on cd29 but with clomid if you ovulated on cd16 and with an lp of 14 days that means ur period will be due on cd31.
Clomid affects the uterine lining so that can be the cause to ur light AF,thin lining means a lighter period.

Thank you for your reply , I ovulated on cd14 as normal but usually AF comes around 10 days after but this month it went the full 14 days and I had a 28 day cycle , I guess that's a good thing. It just didn't feel like it at the time . X thank you again for your reply

Are you being monitored?!How did you confirmed ovulation.The fact that clomid lengthened ur lp is a good thing.A 10 days lp is kinda short but not much to be a problem.

Yes I was monitored with scans but I confirmed ovulation with a opk I started testing on cd10 and got a positive on cd13 I always assume ovulation to be day after the lh surge , and got a negative cd14 then had a scan cd21 .

Well it doesn't always happen the day after the positive opk.Try temping and using opks that will confirm ovulation and this way ur BD schedule will give you a better shot or try to BD as much as possible after the positive opks.
For example i O 2days after my positive opk.

Iv been TTC for 2 1/2 years obsessively for about 1 1/2 and only under fertility specialist for 3 month . My dose was reduced because my ovaries over stimulated last cycle , I had three mature follicles and my doctor said he is only happy for me to have one or two , so he's halved my dose to reduce the risk of multiples ! It's annoying really because although I had three mature follicles I still did t get bloody pregnant!
