Thanks for sharing ladies! Tonya, your appointment actually sounded very thorough to me! I haven't even heard of some of those tests. I'm excited to keep up with this thread! Smile

I just got a phone call from the doc. My thryoid is low again so they are going to adjust my Synthroid. My progesterone was 1.2 so obviously I'm not pg and they are going to start me on prometrium (I think that's what it's called) to get AF started. I guess you take 2 pills for 7 days and then usually after you take your last pill AF should start. So I should be able to start that tonight.

I am really hoping that the whole reason we haven't gotten pg yet is because my thryoid is still out of whack.

Tonya that really might be the case...I will be praying for you that you can get every level where it needs to be and that you get a visit from AF soon!!! Of course I never thought I would have to go to a fertility specialist but after 32 disappointing months of TTC i just need answers and hopefully RESULTS!!! Hang in there girls....this will happen for us..... May take a little more work than some but WE WILL GET THERE!!!!!!! My Dr told me that only 15 states cover any type of fertility treatment ....... the great state of Louisiana covers ZERO.....hhhhmmmmm maybe i need to move...lol

Ashley and Tonya...sounds like your appts. went well... as long as you continue to move forward then you should be holding that little one in no time at all...well of course you have to wait the 9 month incubation time!! Tongue

Tonya-don't get discouraged! Look ahead to each test with a positive attitude and you will feel much better...you can't shoot yourself in the foot before you even know the results--and hopefully it is as simple as your thyroid being out of whack--my FX for you that its that simple! My dr. did have trouble finding my right ovary so she played around a bit to find it and yes I had slight cramps

Ashley-I think it should be mandatory for insurance to cover fertility treatment--I would not be able to do what I am doing right now without insurance (I do live in one of the 15 states that cover treatment) my dream of a family would be lost...but seriously who are these people that think all women are just able to get pg if there DH blinks at them--I bet their mothers had 12 kids and they just don't get it!!

AFM-my result review is tomorrow--I am past all the testing--thank goodness...I know how you ladies feel...you want to continue trying but you feel like your on hold!! I am anxious to get started again. I just hope I don't have to wait too much longer...Ashley I am with you...we may have to work a little harder and endure some crazy testing but we will succeed! I will post tomorrow under this forum about my appt. tomorrow and what the dr. says about all my tests and my options so that everyone knows what they might be able to look forward too.

Stay positive Tonya, we will all get there and at least we have the resources to look into why it is taking so long. Regarding insurance & SA, since my OB/GYN ordered the SA (no office visit needed), I didn't bother to check if my insurance covered it, the lab will try to bill it anyway. I really wanted it, so I don't mind if I have to pay. Since we are only truly on TTC cycle #6 (first 8 didn't count due to ignorance about stupid KY Jellly Sad( ) , we are not going to do any other testing right now, since we know DH is fine. My doc said the next step is HCG, and from what Ashley said that is really pricey so we will wait a few more cycles, hopefully we won't have to go that direction. I will look inot if my insurance covers HCG if we end up going that route.

Good luck Diane, do you go to a military hospital or a German one for your appt? Just curious how it works there.

Ashley & Sara, glad you are being proactive and on your way to a BFP!! At least medical science is on our side! Ashley I really liked the bit about going to the office and coming back prego, if only!

Ashley............Move to Canada! lol Everything is covered here except for prescription meds and IUI or IVF. I'm soooooooooooooo glad DH and I decided to settle here instead of the States because all I've had to do is flash my health card to see the specialist and get a bunch of tests run, including the HSG and SA.
