Hi Ladies:-)
Thanks for the welcome, its such a huge relief to have people to talk to that understand what is going on in your world! Im crossing all my fingers for you all! As for me, hubs and I met with a new doctor today, or maybe I should say old doctor, this office diagnosed us 2 years ago but insurance didn't cover ivf and we put it on hold. Anyway we are covered now a tried a new office, and after 1 visit, meds were ordered, no tests done other than bloodwork day 19, and a pelvic exam and SA, and no one telling us anything... we get this ridiculous email that was transcribed from a recording the doc made during our visit confirming that he actually said to me "if you have any other questions Michael (hubs) will explain it to you in the car"... what the???!!! We went back to our original doc today (2 years ago diagnosis) and feel much better about it, but sadly will have to forgo my November and subsequently December cycle:-( So our official doc now wants to monitor my whole cycle (should start around the 18th) with bloodwork and ultrasounds, and wants to do a hysteroscopy, I had an hsg done 2 years ago but this sounds scarier... Has anyone had one of these done? So he wants hubs to see a urologist, and take fertilaid, he wants me to start with coq10 and vitamin D, and bring on the testing!! Sad to lose the cycles but happy to be in better hands! Here we go! Anyway how is everyone else doing? lol Im trying to catch up on all the posts and learn a little more about everyone!

Bellami: Believe it or not, being in the hands of a doctor that you can trust and talk to, is going to be more important in the process. Don't worry about losing the cycles, as long as it gives you the best chance. Your doc seems proactive, so that is awesome. Good luck with the new phase. Btw, do you have any prior diagnosis? Sorry if I missed it.

Bella your new doctor sounds exactly how a fertility specialist should act and proceed,your old sucks big time,my God!!the histeroscopy is a very easy procedure where they check ur uterus for polyps,fibroids,scaring,etc anything that could prevent implantation,most doctors will want you to have one before Ivf,I had one and bcs they didn’t find anything wrong i recovered the next day.Dont worry you got this!!!We are here for you!!
How are my ladies doing?!

Nicky- we do, lol I'm trying to figure out how to do thing you guys have under your posts that show your diagnosis/where you are in the process but still haven't figured that out yet Lol! Oh newbiesss So we have severe male factor infertility, hubs had an undescended testicle when he was born, they repaired it around a year old but the doc thinks that what caused this. He has a very low count, but he does have a couple (literally) that are motile, add to that the nearly 10 years of trying and we can add my age to our issue as well... I'm 38, also had to have a tumor removed from an ovary a few years back so this doc thinks I may have DOR, he will be testing me for that as well. So he says ivf with icsi is our only shot, and is also recommending pgs, so we are looking in to that now too... don't think insurance covers that though sooo if we do that a loan may be needed, we are waiting on the office to call with our pricing after insurance, so we shall see!

Dana- lol he was such a jerk but is apparently a successful jerk so I was willing to let some stuff go... but like no Hubs will explain it in the car??! Tool! Did they use anesthesia when they did the hysteroscope? Lol I'm a chicken, I read about it and was like whaaaa?! But this doc said something else that sounds cool, he said they do a trial implantation to make sure it is all clear for the actual procedure.. this sounds like a good plan! But I hope the pain isn't too bad... maybe I can get a couple days off from work, that sounds kinda nice:-)

Bella yes they used anesthesia,i was put under so I felt nothing:)) Im also a chicken:))give me all the drugs :)) yep that is called a mock transfer,pretty awesome thing but I didn’t had one prior to my transfers but lots of doctors does them.
We also had Ivf with ICSI and we don’t have any male issues so don’t worry about that .
The recovery after the histeroscopy is pretty easy but hey time off work will be fun.

Hi Everyone, hope you are all doing well. They canceled the cycle because my uterine lining wasn't getting thick enough despite the estrogen medication. Said we will try again next month and have me do estrogen injections instead which I am scared about because those intramuscular injections are painful so hope it's bearable!
