Our Infertility History

End of July/ Early Aug 2009 – Handsome Boy is 18 mo, time for a sibling, stopped mini-pill.

March 2010 – Still not pregnant despite charting and perfect timing, starting to worry, saw OB who did U/S and CD 3 blood tests, said everything was fine and to keep trying for 3 mo before coming back.

July 2010 – Decided after a year of trying and lack of concern from my OB to move on to an RE. Got insurance approval for RE, ditched the OB and had a consult with the RE.

Aug 2010 – Had an HSG (Basically reactive dye shot into the uterus and tubes to check for blockages.). Found some small adhesions for prior pregnancy and messy delivery.

Sep 2010 – Hysterosopic surgery to remove the adhesions. Figured I’d have no trouble now. RE decided on Clomid for the next cycle to boost our chances since I do O kind late.

Oct, Nov, and Dec 2010 – 3 Clomid cycles (first 50mg, then two 100) with Ovidrel Trigger and TIC. BFN all 3 times.

Jan and Feb 2011 – Clomid (first 100mg, then 150 mg), Ovidrel and IUI. Two more BFN. Debate over injectables plus IUI or IVF. No coverage for injectables, so we decide on IVF but then Mr. Right gets a new job offer and we relocate.

March to May 2011 – Waiting for our new insurance to kick in, trying on our own, BFNs.

June 2011 – Consult with new RE. We now have coverage for injectables, so decide to give that a try.

July 2011 – Gonal F and Novarel with IUI, BFN.

Aug 2011 – Cyst left over, no meds, BFN.

Sept 2011 – Gonal F and Novarel with IUI, BFN.

Oct 2011 – Once agin, no meds BFN.

Nov and Dec 2011 – Gonal F and Novarel with IUI, BFN. Please note, all these injectable cycles look amazing,  4-7 good looking follies and then nothing! Moving on to IVF…

Jan 2012 – Hysteroscopy (repeat from 1 year ago). Everything looks perfect. BFN this cycle too.

Feb 2012 – BCP for IVF # 1 (and only, I hope)
