    My husband and I have been TTC for almost 5 years and no pregnancies. We have been going to a fertility specialist 2 months. (Our other dr. would not give us a referral since I am so young. That's why we didn't see a FS before.) My husband had some bad semen analyses and we have corrected that problem. He is now in the normal range for everything. I also have PCOS, but do ovulate on Clomid. I have high testosterone and DHEAS levels- but that is corrected with medicine. Also, my thyroid is in the normal range but higher than my dr would like. I take medicine for that too.
    Anywho, I had an HSG done yesterday. The nurse called me this morning and said my right tube flowed freely but they could not say for 100% that my left side was spilling out. I don't have an appointment with the dr until Nov. 5th. Does anyone else have a similar experience with an HSG like this?
    Any advice is appreciated.

    My HSG was exactly like that! Left tube spilled after 2nd attempt but the right one wouldn't after 5 attempts. I had lap and dye in august which showed both tubes spilling and fine - my appointment to find out what exactly they did or did not have to do is next week.

    I got a BFP - my first ever -the cycle after lap and dye, but unfortunately has recently ended in miscarriage x

    I had an HSG back in december which showed the same as yours. One of the tubes wasn't spilling, but they couldn't say for sure what was blocking it, if anything. The technitian who did the test said I shouldn't worry about it, yet the fertility specialist said she wanted me to have a lap. I took january and february to think about it (my summer holidays) and halfway through february found out I was pregnant after almost two years TTC with (up until then) unexplained infertility. My theory is the HSG test unblocked the tube... but I guess I'll never know.

    Shielarae, do you mind if I ask how you corrected your dh's sperm? We are repeating our SA on oct 17th, praying it was just a fluke.

    Thanks for the stories.. I have a little more hope today than I had yesterday.

    Sprite- My husband had been on vitamins (CoQ10, B12, Selenium, etc.) for a while with no real change in his analysis. He was "diagnosed"* with a pituitary tumor in April. This caused his prolactin levels to be higher and his testosterone to be lower. His urologist prescribed Clomid. He takes 50 mg everyday. He had a semen analysis done at the 3 month mark, so about July, and there was a little improvement but not a lot. He had another analysis done last month and it's all "normal" now.
    *He was sent to an endocrinologist and she said she did not see any signs of a tumor.
    His previous results were:
    Count (million/ml) Motility
    33.2 3%
    66.4 0%!!
    52 2%
    His latest results were 51.5 million/ml 278.1 million total and 52% motility!!

    So glad to her that his treatment was a success. I guess I should be calling around for a urologist. My re wants to repeat his SA on 10/17 to see if it was a fluke. How long would you say it took for his whole process?

    I am pretty sure his first appointment with the urologist was in March. He started Clomid a few days later, when his blood work came back. His last analysis (the normal one) was on Aug. 6. He had one before that in late June/early July and it was better than the first ones but still not in the normal range. So we saw improvement in 3-4 months and what I would considered the desired result in 5 months.

    **I can't really remember what that analysis said in June/July but I think the count was good and motility was around 20-25%. So this was a big improvement from the 0-3% range.
