My TTC journey you can from here.In July 19th 2016 when we decided to meet the recommended gynecologist, first thing that came to my mind was all the invasive check ups because I know these check ups and dint pursue many time in the past, but this time I had to do it. I am already in early thirties , and I just wanted my baby, so I made up my mind to be stronger . Finally when we met the doc, and she got to know about our ttc journey , she asked me and BH to get some blood work done and SA (semen analysis).
Our results were out, mine all are fine only LH was on lower side. BH’s SA counts were good , morphology was good but motility was on lower side. I was told to take cetaptin 500 mg two times a day and folic acid one tab per day , some mineral powder for BH and doc told me to try naturally for three months if it not worked we ll see what can be done next.
Nothing happened in three are four months, went back to doc she told me to just do follicle scan without medication to check whether I am ovulating naturally or not and SA for BH to know how it is now after three months, so that she can decide what can be done next. On day 13 I went scanning had many small follicles ,then went for alternate day scans but the growth was very slow. Then I waited to get my period which was delayed and got my period exactly after 60 days that’s two months sigh.BH’s SA this time were same again little lesser compared to last time but not much difference.
Met my doc after AF (Auntflow/period) she told to get HSG test between day 6 to day 8, one of the most dreaded test, I was scared .I told my doc that I was scared of the test, she told if I am scared then we ll have to do Laparoscopy, so she told its better to first take HSG then we can decide what can be done next. So got HSG test on day 7 , will write in detail about the test.
According to HSG result my right tube was blocked and my left was partial spill or maybe it was fine not sure.From next cycle I was put on clomid 50 mg from day 2 to day 6. My first cycle failed, next cycle was also 50 mg clomid which failed again. Third cycle I was on 100 mg clomid it failed too.
In all the cycles my follicle grew nicely up to 20 mm to 24 mm and ruptured/ovulated on my own on day 17/18, only second cycle I was very unwell and I ovulated on day 23 I think so, but I did ovulate on my own in all cycles. Its a long tiring journey.
Next what, will update soon.
