    Oh the many problems I have. In the past year, I have found out that I had PCOS. My doctor put me on clomid for 9 months. Nothing happened, but tests showed that I was ovulating. Then, I did an HSG test and discovered that one of my tubes was blocked. My doctor then told me that we needed to do a laparoscopy and a hysteroscopy to really see what was going on inside me. She found extensive endometriosis, as well as a heart shaped uterus. I will meet with her shortly to discuss options, but I am curious if anyone has experienced something similar and if there are any success stories out there. Financially, IVF seems impossible for us.The odds seemed to be staked up against me and I am slowly losing hope.
