My name is Emily and I was hoping to share my story:
I got married in July of 2010. Two weeks after being married I got a HORRIBLE bladder infection. I took an antibiotic and it seemed to help. Two weeks later I started getting the symptoms again, but all tests were negative. Last week my doctor ordered an ultrasound to see what was happening. Turns out they found a fibroid on my uterus and they referred me to my OB.
This morning was my OB appointment. He examined me and said that my fibroid was REALLY SMALL, nothing to worry about.
I haven’t had a period since June 2010 (my cycles are usually 35 days and all pregnancy tests, blood tests, and ultrasounds have been negative). He’s concerned about this (as my husband and I want to start trying). He said according to the ultrasound, my uterus lining is really thick which is a sign that AF is coming. Once she comes and goes he’s going to give me a uterine x-ray just to see what’s going on. He said I have a “deformed” uterus, but I was able to have my son full term 10 years ago. He thinks I’m not ovulating and is going to put me on Clomid. I am new to all this. I’m excited and nervous all at the same time. How much will Clomid help? Will we be able to get pregnant rather fast or will it be a long journey? I have all these questions going through my head.
He’s also testing my Thyroid and hormone levels (which have never been tested).
I’m scared that we will not be able to get pregnant, but I can’t stress myself out!!!
