When would you go back to the doctor? UPDATE post #5
Hi, my name is Dawn and DH and I are currently TTC #2. Before I got pregnant with DS #1 I was diagnosed with Unexplained Infertility. We TTC #1 for a little over a year before consulting the doctor and it took about 18 cycles before we got a BFP.
- HSG – normal
- DH’s SAs – first: not great, second: normal
- Hysteroscopy with biopsy (the biopsy was not successful due to my tilted uterus and closed cervix)
- Exploratory laparoscopic surgery: revealed a bleeding cist which was removed from one of my ovaries and an adhesion that was removed from one of my tubes
Just two cycles after the surgery I got pregnant. However, the doctor said that the surgery may have helped me get pregnant but not necessarily.
So here we are now TTC #2 and I really don’t want to wait two years again. How many cycles should I go through before I call the doctor again? If we hadn’t gotten pregnant right away after that surgery I’m not sure what would have been the next step for us. Maybe Clomid? IUI? I’m just not sure.
I should add that when I went in for my yearly OB visit in June '11 my doctor suggested we do the lap surgery again to see if there's anything he can clean up and at that time he could make sure my tubes are clear, etc. I just hesitate to just go under the knife - - just because. YKWIM?
PS: I was active on this board in 06-07, however, I don’t see any familiar names. I wish you all the BEST in your TTC journey.
