Well, as most of you know I am taking Tamoxifen for the first time this cycle. I'm on cd 19 and I have felt some tightness/sharp pains in my ovary area- but nothing i haven't really felt before- Usually if I'm going to ovulate on a medication- like when i did on Clomid my breasts get sore like the day after O... and i still feel nothing. I just have a feeling it didn't work- and every time i have had that feeling before it turned out i was right.
I have a blood test this friday to tell me whether i ovulated or not, but i just know I didn't.... I'm starting to wonder if I also have endometriosis... while i don't experience any major symptoms (other than painful intercouse -occaisionally- and some discomfort in the abdominal area) It would make sense as to why i haven't gotten pregnant even when i DO ovulate properly...
Anways, i'm pretty much just venting now- I just wish my body would ovulate like a normal person, and i could get pregnant!!!!
I almost just want to skip right to laproscopy to make sure there is no scar tissue blocking the way... anyways, thanks for listening girls

Oh Melissa, I am so sorry you're feeling so frustrated right now. I can relate so much. Just wanting to dx yourself essentially and fixing it! I too wanted to jump to step 5 when 3 and 4 weren 't even covered yet. Try to remain positive until you get that blood test which will confirm your ovulation or not. I know it's hard not to worry but try sweetie, hand it over to God, and deal with things one day at a time. Tomorrow is Thursday, so no thoughts of Friday just yet...when you do get confirmation then you can come up with another plan...with the Lord's help and guidance. This will happen for you. You will have your family. Keep repeating this. There is power in positive affirmations.
Big hugs,

I am so sorry Melissa, but no giving up until you know for sure k?? Does your doctor have a lap in his mind for your future already?? I would say to go ahead and get it done, there can be a TON of answers in a lap.... (((hugs)))

I vote for the lap cause it could give you answers. The waiting game sucks so anything to make that process faster I say go for it.
I'm sorry hun that this is so frustrating

*hugs* I'm sorry you're having a tough cycle.

I'm with the other girls here... I think it's time to go for the lap - from there you'll get some answers and your RE will be able to come up with a better plan for you.

Me three...I think a lap would provide more answers than your hsg did and will show if you have anything else going on.

Did they start you on the lowest dose of the Tamoxifan? Is there an option to move the dosage up if need be next month?

Sorry hun (((hugs)))

KittyMom- No- they can't up the dosage of Tamoxifen- it's just only made in 20 mg.

After I get my blood test done tomarow- and find out the results I will talk to my doctor about moving on the Lap. I don't think he will protest all that much, he's been talking about it for awhile... SO we'll see what happens. I'm kinda nervous though, i have no idea what it will feel like afterwards, or the risks or anything like that. I just really hope they find some answers. It's so frustrating when everything else has come back fine and normal except my hormone levels for ovulation- and now maybe some scar tissue blocking the ovaries... i just hope that's what it is, so it can be fixed!!!

Melissa ~ I hate that you are going through this. Not knowing what is causing all the angst & troubles of ttc is horrible. I remember being there not to long ago. When I got dx w/ PCOS & then IR, I felt vindicated. I had answers as to why I couldn't conceive on my own. Then to find out DH count & motility were low, well, that pretty much frustrated me b/c here we were, ttc for 16 mths & no answers. W/ answers come solutions. Get the lap & hope that your dr can dx something that is preventing you from Oing.

Maybe this will bring you comfort...

But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

Give your frustration up to God, He will help you!
