Rmsh sorry to hear that

MK, they didn’t tell me the figures just that it was great. Last time I was scanned in October they told me it was “beautiful!” So brilliant to see the clomid hasn’t thinned it. I had some hot flashes this month but I think the mood swings haven’t been as bad. Glad you’ve had some news from your private FS, I’m sure it is very worrying, but 3% is pretty low, I’m sure everything will be fine hun. As for the bloods, perhaps you are now getting to the bottom of why you’re not conceiving? It’s much better to know then have an action plan!

Aleja good luck with FET!

Broody, GL to you to! 50% is brilliant odds!

Welcome twinkles! I hope you’re not waiting for your BFP as long as some of us! We don’t have Fertilaid over here, but DH was on Wellman conception (though never seems to remember to take it recently!)

Yay for the IUI MrsG! They scanned me on cycle 1 of the clomid to check for ovulation every 2-3 days from day 10 & saw my cyst. It just sounds like you’ve had an extra scan at the beginning.

AFM, follie was 22mm yesterday so due to pop any second! The 2nd one has stopped growing so little risk of twinnies. Going back on Tuesday for another scan to check it’s gone. I thought I was handling things better since my holiday and being relaxed etc.. but had a mini meltdown yesterday x

MrsP, hope you're feeling a bit better today. I'm not surprised you're a bit tense - you've had a very informed cycle this month - seems like you're going for scans every other day! Hard to relax when all that is going on. Fx'd it'll all be worth it though!!!

Hello ladies! Monday morning blues. Yawn

Af spotting arrived yest. Grr. I had kinda hoped the hsg might clear out the tubes to bring my bfp but hey ho. On to the next test- aqua scan!(or sonohystergram or saline scan- apparently it has lots of names).

Hi mrsP it sounds like you are good to go .. After all the scans you must be anxious to get to the 2ww...

Yes aleja, I agree. BFP needed 'round here.

Sorry MK that the HSG didn't work any miracles for you. I second Aleja's question... when do you do your next test. And then what happens? Are you off the Clomid?

How's everyone else doing?

As for me, tonight's my last Clomid pill (of my first round). Only side effect (I think) is a yucky taste in my mouth. My ultrasound and blood work are this Saturday. So then we'll see what this Clomid has been up to!

Hi girls

Mrsp- come on follies! Hope clomid does the trick for you this time. I'm really sorry mrs p but I've forgotten who prescribed you clomid- a fertility specialist or a gp?

Mrsg- good to hear that you're not suffering from too many side effects.

Aleja and broody- doing ok lovely ladies?

Everybody else- hello!

I've booked my saline ultrasound for next weds 4 jul. they told me I don't need antibiotics... Hmmm! They said I will get instant results as a doc will be performing it. I then need to email my initial consultant for his thoughts. He said I can email rather than pay for a second consultation. I'm also getting my Amh blood test done. Has anybody here had that?

I'm seeing my gp tomO as my blood results looked off (red blood count levels do goodness knows why). I will also get his views on my results from the hospital on my fertility tests.

Im off clomid Mrsg, sadly it did nothing for me. It didn't even seem to lengthen my lp or stop my spotting 1-2 days before af. My pvt fertility specialist said he didn't get why I was on it as it won't help people who are ovulating and he said that's standard on Nhs. That said, I've heard fabulous stories of people getting their bfp on clomid despite ovulating on their own. I guess I gave it a go!

It's sad that we are still here after 12-19 months if TTC but I'm really happy to have u girls to chat to. Hopefully it will happen for us soon. I've been wondering why and what the issue could be. I wonder if we have issues like endo that hasnt been picked up by ultrasounds and what not? My two transvaginal ultrasounds didn't show fibroids or polyps but my hsg showed something irregular. Weird. What tests are the ones we should believe in?

Thanks ladies, feeling a bit better. My breakdown was triggered by DH saying we can't go to NY in august. I got my hopes up & we both wanted to go back before we had kids (went on honeymoon 6yrs ago) but its just too expensive. We can afford it but DH doesn't think its good vfm & would be better spent towards a new kitchen. That said he's agreed we can go back to Turkey or another similar sun holiday. I doubt we'll go back to NY for a long long time now, but never mind. It just got me thinking, if we go somewhere hot & I can't sunbathe or drink the all inclusive....then I get annoyed with myself for thinking like that!

MK sorry your spotting started and the HSG didnt work. I also had my hopes up HSG month. My FS was the one that prescribed clomid. What you were saying about WHY? - Maybe its just a matter of time, maybe there's nothing wrong with us? You do hear of people taking years. My FS said if the bloods hadn't showed I didnt ovulate then I would be unexplained & told to wait 2-3 years! As I've said before I'm not convinced it wasn't a one off! It's so frustrating as I keep wondering if the egg is fertilising at all, is it implantation issues? I'm never gonna get any answers though!

Aleja you're so right, we need a BFP!

GL on the clomid MrsG!

hi gals,
there is so many unknowns in LTTC. I really do feel for all of us because its just not fair why we have to have all these intrusive tests, exams, treatments when others get to do it for free. i know I am being negative but it does suck.

MK and MrsP i am not sure what to say about this unexplained infertility questions. To me it sounds like it would be harder to accept that there is nothing wrong??...how can this be???
At least in my case (and Broody's) there is a clear reason why no BFP - dodgy sperm - this makes it both harder and easier to accept...harder because there is little chance of a surprise miracle BFP but easier because there is a course of action we can try. Eg ICSI straight away.

have either of you ladies had any immunology testing? sometimes implantation is hard when there is natural killer cells attacking the embryo which may be trying to implant. I don't know much about this but i know its one of the reasons sometimes implantation fails.

Mk, I did the AMH test earlier this year. This tests your ovarian reserve- to see how many eggs you have left. If AMH is too low it can mean that egg quality may be poor and reserve is running out. Too high can be possible PCOS.
I think if you had endo or PCOS it would have shown up on your ultrasounds by now.
I don't really know what tests we should believe in really . i wonder this too. A friend of mine recently had a laparoscopy to find out what is going on in there. She has low AMH and endo..i think this is tell-all exam as they do some exploration and clear up any endo, etc. however it is very intrusive..hospital stay and up to 2 weeks rest time.

MrsP, 2-3 years waiting is insane- maybe if you were doing everything al naturale, but my FS said that 90% of couples will fall pregnant after 12 months. If it takes longer than 18 mths, then very likely there is a problemo. The stats are great for the normal people out there but for the rest of us....

Thanks Aleja, i agree having answers is definitely easier to handle! Yep the odds in 18 months are brilliant, but sometimes people just have unexplained fertility, though the fs says I'm not one of them.

My scan didnt go to plan yesterday morning - they are 'not sure' if I've ovulated! Folly is still there but is 'raggy' (exact words honestly) & haemorragic (same word used to describe cyst) so either I have just ovulated/am ovulating or haven't ovulated at all. She said they would have expected it to have gone by now. It was 22mm on sat am so really should've ovulated by now... I need to call her when AF comes & she'll have a look at my cycle, though I don't know what that will tell her when I usually have regular cycles & did on the cycle my bloods showed I didnt ovulate! And now I'm wondering why I can't just go back for bloods to be sure? x

That's very strange MrsP! Seems like it would make a lot of sense to take cd21 bloods and see what they say... Maybe your regular dr could do them for you?
