First of all, I take my hat off to all the members of this forum. You are all incredible women and have coped in an admirable way with this journey on a day-by-day basis for many months, never tiring in your quest. Good luck; you all deserve to be blessed with the miracle of life! I have been married for 3 years and TTC #1 for 2 years. So far, I have been diagnosed with anovulation, although I've always had regular periods. I have high prolactin levels and my CA125 came back a little on the high side, but too low to definitely be endo. I had a HSG (UUUGGGGGHHHHH!), which came back fine, therefore, we are going with the more obvious before getting a laparoscopy for possible endo. I have started taking Parlodel and on CD5, will take Serophene. I am just happy that I have found a place where I am not alone. After reading many of your journals, I realize that my problems are small, but nonetheless, I feel extremely anxious during such a trying period of my life. I never realized just how much I wanted to be a mother until I was faced with the difficulty of becoming one.

Are you seeing an RE or an OB/GYN?

Rosanna,

first: welcome to BabyU! I am Jennifer, mom of three, TTCing #4 (will try to confirm tomorrow ).

Second, I wish you luck. I consider myself one of the unfortunates that has no problems concieving. My troubles were in not getting pregnant. I have a ton of respect to the women who do have to try. From being on the other side, I know it can be a very tough ride, and I wish everybody the best.

I'm sorry! I didn't tell you anything about myself!

My name is Heather and my husband and I are TTC#1. We are currently going through our fist cycle of IVF because I have had two previous ectopic pregnancies. (One in each tube)

If there is anything that I can help you with, feel free to ask! If I don't know the answer, I'll find it for you!

He's both. Actually, he's very well-known for being the 1st in Puerto Rico to specialize in RE and infertility. He's the one who all the other RE's send their patients to for second opinions, so I have very high expectations. My first visit was by the book--discussion of my history, a vaginal sono, an HSG, and blood work. My next visit was to discuss my tests, and to determine the road to take. He is very aggressive and that's why he's starting me on Parlodel and Serophene. I will do that for only 3 cycles, and if I am not pregnant by then, we are off to tackle the possible endo.
