TTC 12 Months, TTW! New Here

Postby CJ1129 » Mon Mar 24, 2014 9:22 am

Hi Everyone. My name is Caitlin and I am new here.

A little about me and my situation.....TTC for a year (14 cycls) and I am really starting to get very frustrated so I thought maybe venting would help out a little. We have both had some tests done (blood work and HSG for me and SA for my husband) So far everything has been normal. I do have only a 10 day luteal phase, but my Dr said nothing to worry about....not so sure about that. We have an apt with a fertility Dr in 6 weeks. I am currently 7dpo and REALLY praying it happens this month and we do not need to see a fertility Dr. HSG was done this month on day 7 of my cycle. Anyone have luck conceiving after the HSG?

Hi!
We have been ttc for a year, too. I am starting on Clomid next month, and we are supposed to do the SA and HSG in a couple of weeks.

I am nervous about the HSG....any words of wisdom? My dr said it would feel like a pap exam, but a few other posts seem to say the pain is more intense.

I have irregular cycles, so I am also on provera to regulate them.

I hope you get your bfp before you have your fertility dr appt! Disappointments and no answers can be so frustrating! Especially when there is no found reason for anything abnormal. Prayers for you.

I don't want to make you nervous, but the HSG was very painful for me. Everything was going along fine until the dye was injected. I think maybe I had a bad reaction to it. I was very dizzy and nauseous after. My husband came with me to the procedure, and good thing because I was in no shape to drive afterwards. Other friends of mine have had no issues at all though.

We still have no idea why it is taking us so long to conceive but it does give you the peace of mind seeing if your open tubes etc. You get answers that day and can watch the entire procedure while it is being done.

Thanks. Hopefully panic won't get the best of me. I guess if I am working towards giving birth, I should be able to handle this. I was planning on going myself and going back to work afterwards....perhaps I should rethink that. Maybe I should take some Tylenol or something prior.

Have you tried any meds yet, or are u regular and ovulating ok?

Hi Caitlin and JLG!

In the same boat as both of you and also new to TWW! Haven't done HSG yet but have an appointment in 10 days and have a feeling that will be the next step for us.

I am also here to vent and listen Caitlin so feel free to share! I think what I am getting most down about is that it feels like our life is on hold. Trying to make plans for the summer, wondering if I'll be pregnant during vacations etc,. and remembering doing this last year as well has been kind of depressing :(

Hi mzp!

I had lunch with a friend yesterday. She had fertility issues a few years ago and conceived after a few rounds of IVF. She said her experience with the HSG wasn't too traumatic. She said some cramping, but nothing too severe. Guess everyone is different. Hope we are amongst the lucky ones. Dr said I have to call at cd 1 to schedule HSG that week, and that should be about the 13 th, give or take.

How have u been feeling, Caitlin?
