I had my phone consult with my doctor today to see if she has any idea what went wrong with my cycle. She says I responded well to the medication, (which I dont believe) and I had great looking eggs. The problem was when they added my husbands frozen sperm. She stated they werent great. Even at my 3 day transfer, I only had a 4 cell, and two 3 cell embryos. One of the three cell embryos that they didnt implant, didnt grow at all anymore, and she didnt have much hope for the other two that were implanted. She said we could do IVF again, but we dont have the money for that. I was lucky enough to have some fertility insurance coverage but it got maxxed out before even this cycle was done and I owe them a bunch of money. She wants me to have a HSG first, just to rule out any problems, which she said she doesnt foresee. Then she suggested IUI with donor sperm. Said it usually takes 4-6 cycles to achieve a pregnancy since there is usually just a 20% chance every month to get pregnant. I would be on clomid and use an LH kit to test for ovulation, then go in for insemination. Then the dreaded 2WW. It just all makes me nervous. I mean, if it takes several cycles, then I am not sure if I can go through getting BFN's. It might be more than I can bear. And how do you even begin to shop for a baby daddy??? I know about searching for someone with same hair, eye, build and ethnic background and all of that, but how about everything else??? How do you one day tell your kid that your dad, isn't really your dad??? But the doctor said that is about the only way for us to have a child without IVF, so I guess that is the plan. I am thinking this shopping experience is going to be much harder than buying a purse!!
If anyone has any suggestions or has been through this process or had an HSG, please feel free to let me know.
