My journey through infertility

I survived the laparoscopy

The surgery only took a half an hour.  They doctor found no physical reason why I have not gotten pregnant, so it was disappointing but luckily my recovery has been really easy.  I've had pretty minimal pain.  My husband will be talking with a new urologist next week, and then after my post-op appt.  I think we will be in search of an IVF center to start IVF sometime next year.  We have a few weddings next year that we are in, so we will have to try and work IVF around those.  Until then we will just try on our own and hope for the best.

It's been awhile

I haven't really had much to update since the last month has just been sitting around waiting for my lap but I am happy to announce that once again, I had a short cycle.  I didn't temp so I can't say for sure I ovulated, but my other signs suggest that I did.  My LP was still borderline short, but I say close enough!   This makes me hopeful that if they find something during the lap and remove it, we will be able to get pregnant without meds.   It would be absolutely amazing to be able to get pregnant without having to pump myself full of hormones.  If nothing is found during the lap to explain our lack of success, it will be a really tough decision whether we want to try on our own and hope my body continues to cooperate, or go forward with IVF since obviously nothing else we do seems to work.
