I know I wasn't super active on this board back in the day...but Im hoping that will change....LOL

I needed a break, I just felt defeated month after month. I am in a better place now, and thought I would come back.

For those who don't know me, Im Morgan Married to Kyle and have been for 3 1/2 years. We started TTC 3 years ago. I was diagnosed with PCOS, did clomid, femara, injectables, 4 failed IUI's, and many failed natural cycles.

Now, for fun,.....there is some new stuff going on...LOL I hated my RE, so I started seeing a DR in town that isn't an RE but specializes in infertility. I started to see him in November. He wanted me to have a laparoscopy, awesome....LOL. So I had that done the week of thanksgiving. Turn out I have severe endo and my left tube was totally blocked. So he cleaned me out, unblocked my tube and started me on some meds. I was told I have to do 6 months of Lupron injections and norethedrone. After that we can do some more IUI's ans see what happens.

I have 9 1/2 weeks until we can start trying again. This past 4 months has been amazing for Kyle and I. I took a break from the forums, stopped taking opks every day, stopped charting and totally stopped stressing, because really, there was zero chance I could become pregnant. So I am really excited that my TTC pause it about over and we can get this show on the road.

Hope you all don't mind me popping in here.

Yay, Morgan! I was going to PM you because I wondered where you went! I'm so glad that you have been enjoying a nice break from TTC and that you can come back refreshed and relaxed. And hooray for your new doctor...I can't believe your RE didn't do a lap or think of endo. I'm hoping that you'll come back and get a BFP right away so we can send you off to a DDC

I had an HSG a year and a half ago...maybe a little longer, and it was normal, within a year and a half the endo took over.
