So, the doctor decided to make me go through a cycle and then go have a HSG. He wanted to make sure that my tubes were ok. I had heard of this procedure before, and was really nervous about it. First of all, let me say, I have never had any type of surgery, never been in the hospital, so this really freaked me out. For anyone that doesn't know, this procedure is where they take a small catheter and insert dye into your cervix, and watch how it flows through your tubes. If it flows out freely, then you are good. However, if there is a blockage, then it will be painful.... They did the procedure at the surgical center, which intensified my nerves. I had to wear a hospital gown, and hair net thingy, and those awful things that doctors wear over there shoes, except they were just on my feet. But luckily, my tubes where fine, and the procedure actually wasn't too bad. I mean I would't want to do it all the time, but it was bearable. I went to work right after it was over.
After the procedure, Dr. Servy wanted to try clomid once again. But with a steroid. He said this was an "old school" trick. I tried it, but again I didn't respond. He did an ultrasound after this cycle, and it was more painful I think than the HSG. He had a difficult time finding one of my ovaries. Wow, 7 years ago, I had this same problem. It really made me wonder what one of my previous doctor's was looking at. He had no explanation for this though, and said that it looked like I had scar tissue on that ovary. There is no real explanation for the scar tissue. I have not had any surgery, no infections, so once again no explanation. But here I was with another unsuccessful cycle of clomid. I was getting more and more discouraged as we went on, but Dr. Servy was very proactive, and his next plan of action was far beyond what I ever expected.
