Infertility Update

The woman from the dr's office finally called me back yesterday. She said she called Humana twice to get information, because according to her, you could get one answer from one person and a completely different answer from someone else. Unfortunately, the information she received was the same as what I was told on Friday~ NO infertility coverage.

So today's sonogram cost me $150. If it comes to spending about that much each month, I can probably handle it. It just sucked this month because of the new tires on the jeep.

What did the sonogram have to say? Well, according to the dr. my ovaries are very close together as opposed to being on opposite sides. He says in the grand scheme of things, it really isn't of importance. Okay, if you say so. He says I have two good size eggs one on the left and one on the right. Possibly a third smaller egg. He explained that ideally he'd like to see 3-5 good size eggs. But then we ran into a problem. Something was showing up on the sonogram that he couldn't make out.

He couldn't tell if it was a cyst at the end of my tube or something wrong with the tube. If you read my previous post, you probably saw that according to the pathology from the surgery to remove an ovarian cyst, a piece of my fallopian tube as also removed. This was news to me and didn't quite make sense since an HSG showed both my tubes open and functioning.

The dr. wrote a prescription for blood work that I have to have done next week. This will determine if indeed I ovulated. Then I have to wait and see what happens. If I get a period, I have to call and he may prescribe 150mg of Clomid (up from the current 100). If I don't get a period, I need to come in for a prego test.

We're all keeping our fingers crossed. We'll see what happens. Dr did say we need to get busy the rest of this week and this weekend. Perfect timing for Valentine's day :o)
