Sarah... I think I have read the reason they usually get multiple samples is in case the first one was an anomaly... affected by stress or illness or something like that.
I can understand why he would want to wait to see if the vits helped.. they might take some time to do their work, and I'm sure he wants to see better results next time.. He sounds like a sweetie

it kind of makes sense why the dr. would want to do the HSG first.. like if they're blocked, then ovulation will really be of no use if the spermies can't get to the egg, KWIM? I hope it comes back very clear.. and even if there's a little blockage, I have heard the HSG can clear it out.

Ok I won't hide it in you journal - but at this point there's not much to see - I haven't made a preggo ticker and still have the chart ticker

That makes sense to me too, I hope the HSG is clear and then I can be a little extra fertile for a little bit.

what Judy said! My doc said anything can effect the sample, stress, fatigue, dehydration, just the fact that you're splooshing in a cup isn't a huge turn on! I agree on waiting, might as well see what your HSG shows, because if you're blocked his sample doesn't really matter right now. If you're good to go, then you're right, a few extra weeks of taking his vitamins may help!

My OB mentioned an HSG but I think that will be the next step if we go 2 Clomid cycles without getting pg. He didn't suspect any problems after asking me a few questions about pain during AF, sex etc. but I'm suspecting that will be the next step before IUI. Hope it goes well for you!! I've heard so many women get pg their first cycle after HSG because it just cleans things out!

That's what I told him but he wants to wait anyway because it won't change our game plan
I sure hope it works that way for me....the only thing is....I actually have to O on my own and that is a hard task on it's own!! LOL

So still no O for me I thought maybe since I made other plans my body would be like "oops hang on a min!" Oh well, I'll start my provera tomorrow and hopefully this cycle will only be 40 something days. I am excited to have my HSG done but a little nervous. I'm afraid it's going to hurt really bad! Oh and my DH can't come in with me so I'll be all alone

Anyway, so I'm guesstimating that since today is the 14th...maybe AF will start by the 26-27th? and then my HSG appt will be in the first week of April. I estimate that I will start Clomid in May...BUMMER!

Hi Sarah! I just wanted to come by and introduce myself... I'm Saira (it rhymes with Tyra, but people call me Sarah all the time!), DH is Becket, and we've been trying since October 2009, we're on our 6th cycle now. DH just had a SA done and his morphology was low, so he's on vitamins too. I saw that you're waiting to have another SA done, our doctor said it takes 3-4 months for the vitamins to have an effect, so that makes perfect sense! I hope everything with your HSG goes well, and I hope you get that BFP very soon!

Monday: Got my blood drawn this morning...gotta wait for 1 or 2 this afternoon for results...

Put in my prescription for Provera and my prescription for the antibiotics for the HSG. I have to take 10mg of provera for 7 days....hopefully AF comes sooner rather than later

Today is day 1 of provera. I really don't think we could possibly have any more bad luck then we have these past 7 months so I'm HOPING that AF doesn't take a long time to get here!

As I just took the pill about 10 minutes ago....no SE yet! LOL
