So, we are back from our crazy fast trip to the city and back (about 1600 km). What a ton of information to take in! It went really great though and we have made the decision to do IVF and are on the wait list.
DH's test was good, so the issue isn't there which has been the same for the rest of our testing and treatments. I have diminished ovarian reserve. During my u/s they also found a small cyst on my left ovary but he isn't concerned. They will watch it of course, but he doesn't anticipate that it will be an issue. He also found that my cervical length is 4cm which is longer than average and my uterine depth is also longer than average. This is important obviously for them to know how far to put the catheter in. He said this could have potentially played a part in why the last 2 IUIs didn't work (if the nurse didn't put catheter in deep enough).
He is going to put me on the flare cycle - so I will call in my next period, then the following cycle, I will start BCP for 21 days, then start injections. I am nervous and excited. DH and I are both slightly relieved and stressed less now that a decision has been made. Bear with my while I learn the terms and drugs. Potentially we are looking at egg retrieval in June. The nurses, Dr, etc were amazing and I feel very comfortable with asking questions and being me with them.
I am overwhelmed and emotional as is expected after such a crazy week.
Thanks for reading my book. Hope everyone has a great week!
