(Previously Posted on We.bM.D)
So I had my follow up with my gyn for my HSG yesterday (a MONTH later), and happily, it is true, my HSG was all clear, he said the dye spilled perfectly on both sides. Hooray! The rest of the visit wasn't so wonderful... I ended up having a major breakdown afterwards, but never fear, I'm feeling much better today.
I'd been feeling kinda itchy in the nethers so I asked the doc to take a look (I get itchy sometimes for no reason, and I was SURE there was nothing wrong, but just in case...). Turns out I was wrong - I have another YI. UGH. I'm on CD 10 right now so this sucks!! Doc said to BD anyway, that the YI meds shouldn't interfere with anything. We'll see how I'm feeling b/c I'm really sensitive to YI meds, and only certain kinds actually even cure them for me. I hate to waste a month right after my HSG, so I think I'll OPK and just do it when I get a +. I even bought an oral syringe so we can do it turkey baster style if I'm not feeling up to it! Hehehe. Speaking of which, has anyone here tried that before? If so, any tips? Hubs is not really looking forward to doing that...
The rest of the visit, well... I started asking about what happens next - are there any other tests, etc? He basically went right into referring me to an RE. He told me a specialist might want to do a lap to check for endo, I asked if I would have had any signs if I had it and he said half the time women do have symptoms, the other half just present with infertility. He also said they might just try IUI too.
So A. I'm back to freaking out about endo (if I didn't mention it, my maternal aunt has it pretty bad), and B. I am officially done with my gyn and moving on to an RE now. At least the one he referred me to is close to my work, so I don't have to worry so much about taking time off work for appts, I can just take late lunches. Oh yeah and my gyn said my insurance MAY pay for half. :P
Anyway, I guess I got super emotional last night because I've been in denial that it would get this far, ya know? It's already been hard, but I guess I had hope we'd be able to get pg on our own, and now that hope is running out. Plus the stupid GD YI on top of that... Insult to injury!! (I used to get them ALL THE TIME (like every other month for 2-3 years) and for me they are a b*tch to get rid of.)
Oh yeah and the HORDES of pg women about to pop in the waiting room didn't help my mood any either!
There's more swimming around in my head right now, but that might have to wait for another post...
