Hello. I'm pretty new to the board to, so I'm about at the same stage. After a year of trying, I have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility too. Luckily, DH's numbers are good. We had one failed IUI, but I felt rushed into that and, thanks to the insight of the ladies here, have realized that there was a lack of thoroughness by my RE. He's now retired (and clearly checked out earlier) so we'll be starting over again in January with a new doctor for a reevaluation and hopefully more tests to at least rule out.

If it's something that I learned too slowly: ask, ask, ask, ask, demand at your appointment. And I wish I had read up more beforehand simple -- and obvious to most people, except me -- statements like: "If your RE doesn't feel like the right fit for you, find another. Really, his/her feelings won't be hurt." I have since read just that phrase and will be doing just that. But hopefully you won't need to heed that.

Good luck to you both!
