Hi everyone, Iím new to this forum, although , Iíve posted in TTC
I am 32 and have been with my partner for 2,5 years, we have never used oral contraceptives, but we used condoms during the days that I was supposedly ovulating. Now, we have been officially trying for about 3 months. I am using OPK and discovered that I actually ovulate on CD 17-18, not on CD 14-15 as I had assumed. That means that all the calculation I had made during these past 2+ years (that we were using condoms) was wrong, and I should have gotten pregnant a long time ago.
I went to see a RE for first time, and he said that I was infertile, that I probably have endometriosis (because of my bad menstrual pains and pain during intercourse) but the technical approach is always the same: IUI, and especially IVF. He was very insistent about IVF. Then he did a sonogram which was normal, and sent me to get some tests done in preparation for IUI, and a semen analysis for my DH.
Now, something that I forgot to tell him is that my husband and I have only been having sexual relations with penetration once or twice a month. The reasons are topic for another post, but anyway, Iím still in shock after my visit to the RE and somehow in denial Ö I was crying the whole night refusing to acknowledge my situationÖ Do you think the doctor was being too extremist or business like? Should I see another one?, or as hard as it is, I have to accept his diagnosis and approach?
Thank you in advance for your help and lots of baby dust for all of you!
