@jholler – thanks for the details on your story. And glad you found a way to make it work! Some doctors can be so insensitive – they don’t realize when they say “bad egg” that it can feel awful and make you freak out!! I had an RE before my current one who said all sorts of things to me like, “oh you’re really hairy maybe you have too much testosterone and that’s why you’re not getting pregnant.” WHAT!? Are you serious? Way to insult me AND come up with a non-medical reason why I’m not pregnant. Then he said “I can’t find your left ovary (on a sonogram), it’s so small, maybe that’s why you’re not pregnant.” Meanwhile, my left ovary works just FINE. It was like he just said anything that came to his mind that doesn’t have any scientific support. It’s surprising that someone who goes into a business to help people can say things that are so unhelpful.
I have been using the progesterone suppositories (endometrin) since October. Do you know which ones you’re using? Though, I wonder if I had been putting them too high up. I read somewhere, (maybe even on here), that you just need to get them in. I was shoving them way up there! So more recently I stopped putting them in so high. In my mind I thought the higher/closer to cervix the better but then I read differently. Anyway, who knows. It’s so hard when you don’t have any kind of definitive answer why things aren’t working. I can get really desperate trying to pinpoint anything I can. Thanks again for sharing your story.
