My appointment went well today. Everything was quiet and back to being "normal" size. I asked the nurse what she thought our next step might be... I was inquiring about and IUI. She said she would ask the doctor and see what he thought.
I just got a call on my lunch break. She said that everything looked great and I could go ahead and start 75 IU of the Menopur tonight and continue until next Thursday morning when I have another appointment. She also said that the doctor wants to do a HSG on me.
Is this crazy? I know I have read that many of you ladies have had this done, but normally it seems like it is done at the beginning of the infertility - I am ovulating now so (to me) it seems like my tubes are open. The nurse said that this can be therapeutic even if my tubes are open, like if there is any mucus or anything it can clear out my tubes. The doctor just wants to make sure that everything is flowing, I guess. So I am having this procedure done next Wednesday.
I am really nervous about it! How bad does it hurt??? The nurse said I might feel some "discomfort" but I have read some experiences where it hurt. I have no clue what to expect - the nurse said it is only like a 5 minute procedure.
Then she told me that the doctor said that next cycle (if this one doesn't work) then he wants to try an IUI. So.... that's the plan. I am okay with things. Like I said I am nervous, but I like having plans :)
Please share some wisdom on this procedure with me!!! I think the fact that I know it will probably hurt is making me more nervous! I'm sure it's just a pinch, right??
