I just wanted to introduce myself & let ppl know who I am & why I am here.
My name is Emily, I've been trying to conceive for about 3 1/2 years. Last November we found a large cyst on my left ovary and went into remove it. Ended up needing to remove my entire ovary. There were other problems with my tubes being all twisted and not having "fingers" on the ends. So I have an OK left tube but no left ovary and a really jacked up right tube but have my right ovary.
After surgery then 7 months of clomid and monthly progesterone test and many friends and family getting pregnant. We've decided to see the specialist.
We haven't figured out the specific plan yet. I just had tons of lab work done. Was told by dr today I need to put the plan on hold for 30 days bc I need to get the chicken pox vaccine? I meet with dr on the 21st of this month to go over all my lab results & figure out my plan. We know I need IVF but I'm clueless to the meds I'm going to be taking and test that are going to be done!!
11/28/13 update; since I joined I've started my IVF journey. We did great in egg retrieval getting 17 eggs from my one ovary which 13 fertilized and 7 made it out to be either 5 or 6 day blastocyst. I ended up getting ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome which was HORRIBLE. Had to put egg transfer on hold and have both of my tubes removed :-/ then well on 11/26 two days ago we transferred two blasts!!
