Im a lurker. i have been where you all are.
I just wanted to offer some encouragement! i had an HSG done in late Oct/early November. After trying to conceive for over 6 years, i conceived the very next month, on Dec 8 by IUI! the procedure (HSG) hurt like a son of gun, to put it extremel mildly (i swear i was having contractions for 3 hours after), but worth it in the end! Good luck to you and i hope you dont me stopping in and sharing my story!
May I ask why your doctor decided to go straight to IUI? Mine said he wanted to see what the test looked like and probably start clomid for 3 months. But that was said before he knew what my insides looked like lol. I'm also scared that my uterus looks tilted. I am hoping that is just me reading more into it but it didn't look all nice and straight.
Thank you all so much for sharing your experiences and advice. I truly appreciate it!
It is looking like I may possibly have to wait a bit longer than I would like for insurance reasons. But, I'm glad to know what to expect.
Christina - Maybe when your Dr. sees that there is the blockage issue, he may decide that the Clomid is not the right approach? I'm definitely new to this but it would seem like if you are ovulating, but the egg can't get anywhere about half the time, Clomid would not necessarily be useful. I hope you get a good plan for the future on Monday!
From what the doctor who did the test said and what I saw, one tube is blocked. My husband was just saying this morning that he's scared that one is his sperm will make it up to the blocked tube and we will get a tubal pregnancy. I told him the dye wasn't going through so I don't know how a spermie would hah. Not sure what the doctor will say come monday. He might want to move right on to IUI. I am just going to have to sit here this weekend and hope we catch the egg right now.
