It sounds like a good appointment with the RE.  On the brighter side, if your tubes are blocked, you have a diagnosis and can move forward from there.  We’re still just unexplained (sa is great, blood is fine, clear hsg, etc) and still taking shots on the dark after over a year and a half now.  CD 10 is a standard time for blood test also, 3 for baseline, then 10 to see how levels are changing.

I also just started Cycle 12:( I feel you. I’m sorry you previous doctor wa an idiot, but I’m glad you finally found a good one, someone who listens to you and seems to know what he’s doing. I hope you can figure out what’s going on soon, it sounds like you’re on the right track. Good luck with the HSG and Femara, hopefully it’s what you need. Also, on a more positive note, sometimes just having an HSG can clear out tubes that are stopped up, and there’s a small increased chance of pregnancy after having one done too:)

Peffy:  I’m sorry you are in this shitty place with us. I just started cycle 13. Re blocked tubes. I actually hoped it was that!! Lol. Because, I reckoned at least Id know what it was and it was solvable! I’m one of those ‘there’s nothing wrong with either of you’ cases! Which is just as frustrating. I hope you get answers either way. Btw, is femera like clomid? 

You should join the 1+ thread. There is incredible support over there!!

maybe you could have your RE’s office write a letter to your insurance co to fight to have the test covered again explaining that the obgyn didn’t know what he was doing.

i’m right there with you in testing.  i had day 3 testing done a few days ago.  this morning i had the sonohystogram to check my uterus.  so far they said everything looks good.

tomorrow i go for the HSG to check my tubes.

i do know DH has low motility so hopefully we will have answers soon and hopefully you will too.

good luck!

Peffy:  I just started cycle 13 so I know where you are coming from.  The good thing is that if you do have blocked tubes sometimes they can be pushed through during the HSG, or from what I hear it is a realatively easy obstacle to overcome.  FX’d that’s all you need.  Sorry that your last OBGYN was a dumbdumbhead and that you’ve wasted valuable time and insurance resources on that.  Hope everythings works out for you soon!

ajillity81:  Good luck on your HSG tomorrow!
