What to expect with an RE?

Postby mamahopeful15 » Fri Jan 08, 2016 7:34 am

After three years of TTC with temping, metformin, 8 rounds of clomid, 2 rounds of femera, a clear HSG, husbands SA which was normal, Lydia Pinkham, Fertilaid, preseed, softcups and every other tip/trick you can think of, we have decided to finally go to an RE. We were told by my OBGYN that we are in the unexplained infertility category and there is nothing else that she can do and gave us a referral a few months ago. For the ladies that have made it to this point what can we expect? Will they make us start over with what we have already tried or will they start with something new? My hope is that he will recommend an IUI and at least try it. If anyone specifically has worked with Advanced Fertility Group with Dr. Gentry in the Midwest I would love some personal experience stories with him.

I'm from southern il and I saw an re named dr gentry in Evansville in like 14 years ago. I wonder if it's the same one. I only saw him twice since we moved out of the area shortly after. I liked him though. Me and my Dh had testing done there.
