About Me / My Trying to Conceive Story

In 1998 I stopped cycling, I was 16, and had no Idea what was happening, I went to 3 Dr's none of which were ever able to tell me why I stopped. In 2006 After getting Married, My DH and I decided it was time to find out what was going on and why I never cycled unless I was on BC. We went to a Gyn, who once again had no clue, but who did send me for further testing. Upon seeing a blockage in a hystrosalpingogram, I was referred to my current RE. Within 15 minutes in His office, I had the first of my 2 diagnosis, without blood work, (but with blood work ordered) My Dr told me he was almost positive I had PCOS. (Bloodwork came back and He was correct) Next he wanted to check on the Images from the hystrosalpingogram, by doing an MRI, it was at this time that the same results were seen along with the knowledge that I was missing my Right Kidney. the Dr explained at this time that he suspected that I may have a Unicornuate Uterus, but that he was having trouble visualizing what he needed to see in order to verify it. At this point I was scheduled from exploratory surgery to verify what the Dr was almost positive of. We recieved the positive diagnosis of a Unicornuate Uterus immediately after a awoke from Surgery. A month later we did our first round of clomid 50mg, to which I did not respond, the following month 75mg of clomid, again no response, the next month 100mg of clomid, after no response this cycle, I hit what I like to call a wall. I truly feel like i was losing my mind, within that first year I received blow after blow and I just couldn't take it anymore. I think that I reached my limit, 2 really mind blowing Diagnosis, and 3 failed cycles back to back. I told everyone I wanted a break, some space to allow myself to take it all in and let myself get over the grief that i didn't even know i had at the time. It took me until April of 2012 to get into a place in my body(my cycle came back after a 60lb weight loss), and my mind where I felt like i could handle trying again. We have now had 2 cycles with Femara, the first we responded too, but the Dr missed OV by 1 day and we were unable to perform the IUI. The second cycle, there were no active follicles visualized, and my OPK never showed a serge. so IMO I did not respond the the 2nd cycle, but according to Blood work, my Progesterone was high enough that it showed OV. I have a Dr Apt on 6/13 to discuss what is going on and that will be my day 5, so I am hoping to try Clomid again now that I am cycling on my own and already OV without meds.
