For those of you who don't know me, I've been around here too long. DH and I ditched birth control 5.5 years ago and so far have had no luck TTC. We've been on a break for the last few months though, but now I'm back!
Here is my rundown of the last 5.5 years:
-TTC on our own for 2 years approx, one angel at 5 weeks in that time.
-RE#1 diagnoses "unexplained infertility" after basic investigations (saline hydro..something or other to check tubes which were fine and I O normally). DH's counts are "threw the roof" so no issues there.
-we moved to another city
-RE#2 agrees with RE#1. Three IUIs with meds (clomid and injectibles) from Jan '11 to June '11. Another angel at 5.5 weeks in that time. LAP reveals large cyst on left ovary, right tube blocked, uterus was "hard to see", mild endo. One more aggressive cycle with injectibles to try and get a few more eggs off the left. Even with 4 follies and a sperm count 10X the normal after washing, BFN.
-we move again
-RE#3 reviews docs from previous doctors and asks us why my Uterine Septum (!!?!) hadn't been looked at as a cause yet. NEWS TO US then he shows us the document from the last clinic which very clearly states I do have a subseptate uterus which they never told us about. 3D ultrasound shows a pretty significant septum, but at least it's not a complete septum.
Oct 4 I had the surgery to remove the septum, as well as the cyst on my left ovary which was close to the size of apricot. Also an HSG to check tubes and check my endo/clear it out if required. Unfortunately I haven't had my follow up with the RE yet and that isn't until Dec 5. Therefore I don't know what he found during the lap or whether my right tube was blocked after all (he thinks the dye during my LAP/HSG last year wasn't going through because the septum was blocking it).
I checked with the nurse at the clinic and I'm "released" to start TTC again now that the bleeding stopped from the surgery. I had some EWCM the last few days and DH and I DTD so, based on my body signs I think I'm in my first TWW in a LONG time!
The biggest problem I'm having right now is that I have absolutely no hope left. I'm so scared of getting my hopes up. I really want to believe that my issues are fixed. I want to have hope that I can get pregnant and that it will happen quickly. But I've been through so much that I'm really at a breaking point and I don't know how much more I can take. It doesn't help that I just had my 34th birthday last week. If any of you have any hope to spare, I could use some right now. I'm not religious, but I guess prayers would be welcome as well!
