Well, I had my first RE visit today!

The plan is for me to get an HSG next cycle and also do some more bloodwork (Rubella antibodies, ABO blood type and repeat testosterone).

She gave me a prescription to go ahead and start Clomid next cycle too. I have to talk to Dh and see if he wants to start this.

She said Dh's sperm morphology is fine. She said they can be really super strict on the morph so I guess we have ruled out Dh's sperm as a problem, especially since he has such a great count and motility.

She did an ultrasound and took a while doing it. I have two things to worry about now.

1. She was having trouble getting a good look at my uterus. She said probably it was just tilited to the left, but it's possible that I have a unicornuate uterus. I googled that and it's when your uterus is too small and you are missing one of your tubes. Crap. I hope that's not the problem. She said we will know for sure after the HSG.

2. She said my ovaries look polycystic. Whaaa?. I would have never guessed that. Weird thing is, my testosterone and other bloodwork came back normal. So she's repeating that but she said they don't diagnose PCOS just based on how the ovaries look. So I could have polycystic ovaries but still not have PCOS, I guess. She will give me Metformin if I do get diagnosed with PCOS. I'm not sure that it really means much of anything because she said she could tell that I did ovulate. So since the main problem with PCOS is that you don't ovulate (I think?) then hmm, I don't know. Like I said, it seems so strange to me because the ONLY symptom I have that would indicate PCOS is acne.

So assuming I'm not pregnant this cycle, I should have the HSG in a couple weeks. And maybe start the Clomid. I'd kind of rather do Femara but I think Dh and my Dr are both more on the Clomid train so I may try it out and see how it goes.

All in all it actually sounds like a pretty good appt. I wouldn't worry too much about the cysts just yet, I get them too & it never gave me an issue with getting pg. The HSG is painful, but it's quick & then you are a bit crampy afterward. The month that you get the HSG it really does increase your chances of getting pg - so there is one bonus. I am sorry they are worried about a unicornate uterus. Try not to think about it too much for now, since they won't be able to really know anything until the HSG. If you uterus is tipped, that can make it harder to get pg - so maybe that is the culprit. If it is there are things you can do to help that....like stand on head after BD! (Kidding of course) but seriously you can lay on your tummy with a pillow under your pelvis for instance..... I wish you much luck honey. I know it must be very very frustrating & I am sorry it has been so long now without getting pg. I really do think your time is coming, so try to hang in there & not let it get to you too much. In the meantime you can crab to us all you need to!
