Just got a call from the doctor’s office – all four tests they did last week came back normal. I guess that’s a good thing, b/c they were all potentially more serious issues… though we still don’t know what the problem is and that’s frustrating. I’m going in for my ultrasound tomorrow to check and make sure I don’t have any enlarged cysts on my ovaries, because if they start me on clomid, one of the potential side effects is enlarged cysts…so they wouldn’t want me to start out on the meds if I already have an issue with it. Kind of sucky to spend so much money ruling things out, but I guess it’s the safest way! The Hubby didn’t do the semen analysis yet b/c last Friday was his Mom’s birthday and we took her out to lunch, so this Friday (he works half-days on Fridays) he’s going to the clinic 90 miles from here to give his “sample” and make sure he checks out okay. Assuming everything is good to go with his supply and my ovaries, the next step is for the Doc to give me progesterone and then take it away to “force” a period so that they can start me on Clomid.
Bit by bit, we’re making progress! LORDY do I hope that Clomid is all we need to do to get my body working again.
Also, I should note that Clomid can increase your chances of having twins to 10%. That would be crazy.
