I feel a bit like I am interrupting a conversation, cos this seems a well established thread. Excuse me if my acronyms are wrong, I am still learning and want to learn from your experiences.
Anyway, my DH and I had our first appointment at ERI end of July. I was given specimen bottles (if anyone checks my freezer, I have 3 frozen "peas") and a card requesting an ultrasound.
The dr heavily recommended IVF (self funding) and almost seemed poised to start the process there and then. DH said we should step back and look into the process. We've been TTC naturally for over 4 years and I am almost 39, so I consider myself pretty desperate. At the moment, apart from my age, the IF is unexplained. Dr thought that an xray was not necessary, as for unexplained or tubal problems IVF would be recommended.I felt a bit freaked after the appointment, and only realised I was to hand in a ultrasound scan request the other day. I have done this now.
This will sound really silly, but I am worried about the frozen "peas". I use clearblue fertility monitor and normally I have about 5 high days before 2 peak days occurs, but now I have had 9 high days, so I am thinking that this out of character cycle will be reflected in the frozen "peas". Sorry about TMI.
Now a request for TMI, the ultrasound, would it be
PS Feel free to say hello, if you don't want to answer the TMI questions.
