    Well, I called my docs office. His nurse set an appointment for me to come in on Friday to talk to him about the test. She just called me back and said after talking to him I don't need an appointment. Mu tubes were clear and he said that is not an issue.

    So she said to call when I start my cycle. Since I don't ever start on my own I have to wait 30 days from my last cycle and then another 2 weeks. My doc does it that way since some people start a little later. So I told her I would call her for the provera then. They just seem convinced that AF is going to come without some coaxing!

    She also said that in the mean time he is going to contemplate what to do next. Guess I gotta learn patience and wait. Can anyone offer any suggestions on what he may do next? Are thre any mroe tests that can be done or am I sprinting in the direction of IUI or IVF???

    if they haven't done a laposcopy to check for endomitriosis, they might do that. Otherwise sounds like they may try for IUI. Good luck and sorry you're being delayed

    I'm sorry you have to wait so long for AF!!!

    So, if your tubes are clear, then I'm guessing they will need to work on getting you to grow mature eggs. Probably put you on some fertility meds and monitor with u/s during your cycle, would be my guess. Since Clomid didn't work for you, they might try Femara, or want to go straight to injectables.

    Doesn't mean you have to go to IUI - unless they think there is a problem with your DH's sperm getting up to tubes.

    Has he had SA done? They might also want a post-coital test as well...

    Just come guesses - I'd call the nurse back and ask what the plan of action is... Personally, I can't stand not knowing what the plan is!!

    Well, DH has had an SA and all is well there. The nurse told me she will only make me wait untill it has been 30 days, but that the doc will say wait 2 more weeks. So instead of calling at 30 and being put off, I'm jsut gonna wait.

    We also did a PC test and that came back fine as well. I would call and demand a plan, but I don't think he knows what the plan is yet. His nurse said he told her that he is going to contemplate me and would have a plan byt the time I get AF. So I guess I just have to hurry up and wait!

    Well then, it sounds like you know all that they know! (which is good) I look forward to hearing what they have in store for you - and hope it works!!!
    Take care!
