TTC for over 3 years and frustrated!
An_241933 posted:
My husband and I have been TTC for over 3 years--running the usual tests. My husband's sperm testing had come out normal. But, it was discovered that I had mild endometriosis that was treated with laproscopy surgery. Following the surgery, our doctor, without much follow-up, determined we needed to do a dye test, which came out with normal results. Again, without follow-up, we finally decided to seek a fertility specialist as suggested by a family member. The specialist required that we do mucus charting for four months at which time we have had frustrating paperwork to even have our records reviewed by the doctor. We have finally decided that we are through waiting. We have felt the heartache and frustration of "sharing" the joy of family and friends' pregnancies. When will it be our turn? If anything, this entire process has made our marriage stronger, but I feel my will wavering every disappointing month after month. We have begun looking for doctors that specialize in IUI. Has anyone else had experience with this procedure? Any suggestions?

Prayerfully waiting...

I know how it feels. My husband and I have been TTC for just over 3 years. It has been really hard lately because i found my best friend who wasn't even trying is pregnant. Although I am very happy for is still really difficult to be around for all the baby stuff. I just want to cry right now thinking about it. I am just starting some things with my Inferitility doctor. He is AMAZING...i love, love this doctor. I did my HSG test and everything came back normal. My LH, FSH, and thyroid are all normal. My husbands sperm is normal. I don't know what to do. I am waiting to finish paying for my HSG then I will be going back to see whats next. I haven't started the IUI yet. I figure that would be next along with clomid. I did one round of clomid already but it didn't do much, I think i already ovulate anyways. Sorry i can't answer your question, but i just want you to know you are not alone. Good luck and keep your head up!
