Coping with Unexplained Infertility...

Our story starts 8 years ago when we were newly married and ready to start our family...low and behold it did not happen as we planned.

By 2001, we needed answers. Test after test....nothing turned up wrong. "stop trying" we were told, "just relax, it will happen". 2002, HSG and exploratory lap. scope surgery still turned up no answers. The clomid and metformin trial started....still nothing. IUI was added into the treatment mix and still no luck. Feeling like the biggest failure in the world because I could not give my husband the baby we so desired we took a break. Sex had become something I didn't enjoy...what was the point if I couldn't get pregnant. I was tired of crying and my heart breaking with each period.

After a year of regaining my sanity and reconnecting with my hubby we started IUI with Puregon then changed to gonal f after a few cycles. Still no baby. I produced eggs, sperm was excellent. No baby.

We didn't know if we wanted to try IVF. We were afraid of failure and it costing so much $$. We thought of adopting but always really still wanted our own.

This past month we did our first IVF cycle. Managed to get 5 embryos. 2 grade I, 3 grade II. The embryo transfer (the 2 grade I) was Nov 20th, the other 3 were frozen. I am currently waiting to take the preg. test on Tuesday. Unfortunately I am currently spotting and am not too hopeful. HPT are negative. The waiting time has always been the hardest for me.

Searching this message board tonight and reading the stories of others has helped me not feel so alone in my journey and I hope perhaps my story may help someone else. Best of luck to everyone TTC.

It could be implantation spotting too.
