When I had my annual gyn appt in October, I mentioned to my doctor that we had been trying for a few months to get pg with no luck. He told me to give it 6 months to give my body time to start regular cycles again. Well....6 months have come and gone, my cycles seem wackier than ever so back to the doctor we go! I feel so bummed and really had hopes it would have happened on it's own. It was kind of funny when I called to make the appt. and they asked what it was for. I wasn't quite sure how to word it...LOL. So then the woman says, "oh, you mean a family planning appt.". Um, I guess so.
I know some of you have dealt with similar situations but man does it stink! So much stress on my relationship with DH...esp the sex part! I never thought I would get to the point of it feeling like something that had to be done! Then seeing our friends who had their first vary around the time Ev was born now having their second..its been tough!
I am a little scared about going but on the other hand I want to know if something is wrong and if it can be fixed. Wish us luck and I'll update next week! Thanks for listening/reading!
UPDATE - Well, we had our appt. this morning. Overall, I think it went well. My doctor thinks my cycles aren't all that wacky. Since he thinks the chances of something "breaking" in the 2 years since Ev was born, he doesn't think it would be worth it to go through tests such as sperm analysis, hsg, etc at the moment. His suggestion is to try clomid for a few cycles and see how it goes. If we don't have success then do some testing. I have mixed feelings but also have some time to think about it since I wouldn't start until my next cycle. I plan on doing some research on side effects, etc and any input/experiences that anyone would like to share would also be greatly appreciated! Thanks again for all of your support and kind words...it really does mean a lot!
