Thank you eribear :)

Oh totally radkitten! How are you coping with things?
I was traumatized from the experience for some months!
I went back to ttc 3 months post ep and got bfns twice - I was so upset I had to take a month out again.
Do you have a good right tube? What caused your ep? X

I am actually coping okay. I have the go ahead to try right away, and we are. Downside is that I O'd on the left side this month, so I am in the TWW, but not thinking it will be positive since it was the wrong side. Of course the cyst I had removed from my ovary was on the good side, so he said it may take a couple months for it to heal well enough to start producing follicles.

I'm so used to BFN's, that seeing them doesn't really phase me anymore, but I've been at this for 5+ years now.

I do have a good right tube as far as we can tell. My OB who did my surgery said that the abdominal scarring I had was mainly on the left side, and that my left tube had been scarred onto my uterus it was so bad. When he talked to my husband after my surgery he had told him it would have taken explosives for a fertilized egg to get out of that tube. He said my right tube though was free in my abdomen and "floppy", which he said was good. Not sure what the inside looks like, but he said since the outside is fine and my HSG had shown that side to be totally open that I should be okay.

So right now I am just waiting for my first AF post-ectopic. My RE of course says my best bet is IVF, but I have 0 infertility coverage outside of some bloodwork, diagnostic tests, and ultrasounds. Everything else is out of pocket. So once AF show (she should be here by the 25th at the very latest), he is going to start me on Clomid to try and stimulate follicles on both sides. They also found out through all this that I have homozygous MTHFR, so he got me onto a high dose folic acid and b vitamin supplement and I am taking baby aspiring. So just waiting it out right now sadly =(.

Should be 9 DPO based on my ultrasound a couple weeks ago, all tests showing BFN so far. So we'll see!
