Hi ladies.
We have been trying for three years for a baby.
I have never ever had regular periods despite being very normal sized and normal weight until I was in my mid 20's.
I have lost 45 pounds in the whole ttc journey, bcs they suggest losing about 10% can have a big impact. It didn't. At all.

So now, after trying everything we could think of or my md suggested, I'm off to the RE. Tomorrow. Scared to death!!!!
I'm so worried they will take one look at me and tell me they won't help me because I'm plus sized! That I will have to wait three more years and try to lose more before anything will happen.

Could anyone tell me any stories about RE appointments and what they will do for plus sized ladies?

Oh, and btw, I'm about 5'3". I weigh right around 245. I have no blood pressure, heart, or sugar problems. I actually am extremely healthy in almost every way but the weight. My dr was supportive of me trying and had different ideas for the last three years, but this is someone different... I like to think that if an RE wouldn't help me, then my dr would have not referred me, and would have stopped me from TTCing long ago!

He was fantastic! He was nice and supportive! He told me that while my weight is high, it is likely not the problem as my cycles have never been normal. And the severity of the abnormality of them too. He says that it seems to him, the thing to do is get me ovulating regularly so that we have our fair shot of getting pg.

So. I walked out with a prescription for provera to induce a cycle. And a prescription for clomid. To try next cycle. We are going to try the 50 mg for one and see if it does make me ovulate, and increase if necessary.

He also scheduled an hsg for day 6-12 of my next cycle when it comes. He says that since I've had any prenancies, it's doubtful that's an issue, but we will check just in case.

So that's where we'll start!

He was very optomistic, very happy to help, and not iffy at all! I can't even believe how well it went!

I'm very excited to get going. Taking the provera starting tonight!

My HSG was today! It was fast!! I was in and out in about 70 mins.
And my doctor actually came to the hospital too, I didn't realize he would be the one doing it, I thought he just ordered it from there. So that was excellent!

It wasn't too painful. There was alot of cramping, but he said that was because he actually needed to put quite a bit of pressure in to get the dye to flow through the tubes. He said that might actually help me alot!! (I guess they were gunky or twisted or something, and now they are not??) The nurse said the same thing on the way out! :yahoo:
After the dye did go through, he said everything looks great!

YAY!!!! Huge relief!! I am SO Happy!!


He said to do the OPK's and keep up with the clomid, and see if I ovulate. If I'm ovulating, I'll stay on the 50 mg of Clomid for the next two cycles after this one and see what happens!!!
