question-circle Don't know what to do!!

Hello Ladies

I'm hoping anyone on here can give me a little advice or share their experiences please.

Hubby and I have been ttc for over a year now (I realize that compared to some ladies on here it's not that long) and we've (read 'I've') come to a cross roads.

You see, it's like this, my eggs don't become big enough for conception to take place so I was put on fertomid. Was on it last month and still AF made her usual appearance exactly 14 days after given a trigger shot to induce ovulation. In October last year I had a hsg procedure which showed that one fallopian tube is completely blocked whilst the other one is open but might not be open entirely.

Now, I'm on fertomid again with the hopes and prayers that this month is our month (last month I had a nice big egg so the fertomid works) but I think it's the fallopian tube that's causing the problem.

Right, so now, obviously with the one remaining fallopian tube also (possibly) acting up, I'm at the cross roads. My gynae suggested we try artificial insemination should this month also fail but what good will that do if the egg can't even get through the tube?

I was planning on seeing a homeopath and seeing if I can't naturally unblock the fallopian tubes but I'm scared that it's going to take SO long to actually get a result (I'm very ready to be a mommy). There is this product on the internet that has been around for over 30 years (felopio) but it costs nearly $600 but, it shows results within a month.

I'm just so lost as to what to do. Really, I don't know if I should suck it up and do the AI or should I really try my patience and go natural with the homeopath.

Any advice or similar stories will help ladies.

Thanks.

Hi Morgan :)
I can see you posted this a while ago. Have you made any progress or decisions yet? We've done AI 3 times and are now on an IVF cycle. I understand your anxiety to get it all done naturally, but after going that route, we eventually settled on IVF (long story that I don't mind sharing if you'd like to hear it). I really hope this post finds your heart well, and your womb full :)

Hi Jannet!!

Thanks for the reply! It really is appreciated! :heart:

Hubby and I are going for our first IUI in the begining of March!! :woohoo: I have to start drinking femara tomorrow (CD5) and have gynae appointment on 2 March to check for eggs and trigger shot then on 4 March, IUI procedure.

I'd be really greatful if you'd share your story. I'm keeping positive that this IUI will work first time round but should it not then I think we're going straight to IVF.

Ah well, sometimes Mother Nature needs a bit of help in getting the work done so.... IUI and IVF are here to help!

Thanks again!

That's wonderful, Morgan! Lots of baby dust for you :)
We were married in Dec 2011 and conceived our daughter, Willow, without much effort 5 months later. I developed preeclampsia in my third trimester and delivered her just before 32 weeks. Willow was very underweight due to my high blood pressure, but progressed well for a month in the NICU. Unfortunately, Willow got sick and never recovered. She passed on when she was 6 weeks old. The following months were traumatic for all of us, but we have journeyed a rocky road and are stronger for it.
Because it was so easy to conceive Willow, we didn't expect any difficulties getting preggie again - not so!! The next year was a year of trying EVERYTHING and nothing working-and sobbing every time I started my period!! I must've driven my beautiful husband mad!!
Eventually, we went to a fertility specialist, and after what seemed like forever, I was diagnosed with having a unicornate uterus. I have 2 fully functional ovaries, 2 fallopian tubes, but only 1 is attached to my uterus....and it got blocked after my c-section with Willow. So, there was nothing I could've done in the natural to get pregnant. Even natural remedies didn't and wouldn't work. It was a bit of a relief finding out, because you eventually start thinking it's all in your head and you'll never get over it all!
So, after trying 1more IUI, we decided to stop wasting money and just do IVF. Takes all the pressure off, you know?
They did egg retrieval last Friday and got 11 eggs of which 10 were viable. We froze 6 and fertilised 4. Of the 4 we fertilised, 3 grew properly and one just stopped after 4 days. They implanted 1 this last Monday, as it's too dangerous implanting more due to my uterus being smaller. We can't run the risk of multiples. Now it's the waiting game to see if our little baba has hooked up well :) we do a test on 4 march :) time is dragging!!!
So, there you have it! As you can see, a looong story! Lol!
I wish you so much luck and favour during your journeying, and I pray that we both have our arms full by this time next year ;)
Feel free to bounce anything you're going through off of me- vent away!
Chat soon.

Oh wow Jannet!

I'm so sorry for your loss. Really, I don't understand how things like that happen. I really am sorry.

Thank you so very much for sharing. It has put some things into perspective for me. I also think that should this IUI not be successful first time round we'll also do IVF. Like you said, to stop wasting money and also to take the pressure off!

Seems like beginning March is a very busy month for the both of us! I hope you get a BFP on the 4th and that all will be well.

I'll also definitly reach out to you should I need to vent. Please feel free to do the same.

Once again, thanks so much for telling your story.

hi Ladies,

hi Jannet- thanks for sharing your story. I am so sorry for your loss and i pray that yuo get a sticky bean this cycle.

Now we are ttcing for no2, and deep down i wonder if it wont happen again..so yaa its nice to hear from someone who has experienced it as well, maybe we can get through this journey together. If yuo dont mind, please share how you picked it up, and if you felt any symptoms leading to the discovery of it.
