Today I finally called the specialist my doctor referred me to in July. I kind of felt like I was maybe jumping the gun, but the nurse (and my doctor) told me that 6 months of actively trying is definitely long enough to take action. I know most people online say you need to wait a year but I was surprised and happy to hear that they thought it was worth looking into now. (Have been trying since February). Unfortunately the soonest I can be seen is Nov 8. But my current dr is sending me in for an HSG right after my period ends. (I'm TERRIFIED of the pain). The only thing in my blood that hasn't been tested is my progesterone so that will be the next step once I'm able to meet with the other dr in Nov.
As stressful as TTC is, it does comfort me to know that we are going to try to do something about it. I'm excited and nervous to take action!
I would LOVE to hear from some of you who have been down this road. Any advice, thoughts, or even just support are very appreciated!
I sought out medical intervention 9 months into ttc and it was the best thing I ever did. HSG's aren't that bad. Over in a moment and a lot of people do find themselves pregnant that cycle. I ended up having a weak ovulation so I did Clomid and IUI because my husband had borderline sperm counts (which ended up being high once he took supplements so he could have just had a bad few months too). I was monitored with CD 3 ultrasounds, mid cycle ultrasound to check my follicles and blood work 7 days after ovulation to confirm ovulation. I don't regret learning what was happening with me.
I'm also pregnant right now naturally (and accidentally) even after all that work to get pregnant with my 2nd.
