Hi. I am Margaret and DH is Sean. We are from Edmonton, Alberta. I just turned 43 and have had PCOS since I was 16. I also have stage 1 endo. We have a 7 year old son, Robbie. Just about 18 months ago I had a m/c @ 12 weeks (baby died at 8 weeks).
After a very long wait we finally were were able to get into the fertility clinic today. The RE we saw was amazing and gave us a ton of information and some hope for the future. His resident was also amazing, both gave us so much information and made me feel better about things. I was so nervous before the appointment. I was afraid he was going to say there was no hope in trying.
So, it looks like we will be doing IUI and injectables so I figured I would hang out here.
OK, just got home from the clinic. Appointment was for 3pm and finally left there at 5:30 - Pretty sure we were talking to the doctor for over an hour but lots of information.
So here is what is happening right now:
-blood work for both of us - hepatitis, hiv, etc
-blood work for me on day 3 - all the normal hormonal stuff
-standing hcg to be done on day 35 before taking progesterone - so no more cycles longer then 35 days before doing something
-sex 2-3 times/week - DH loves this one
-hsg - next cycle - last one was fine, no one has looked at my uterus to see if there is any issues....
-another sperm analysis for Sean (his last one was perfect)
-me - exercise 30 mins 5/week
-me - diet
most likely IUI with injectables, he does not think that ivf is a way for us to go
