I decided to give Dr. P’s office a call yesterday afternoon because it had been 3 days since the HSG from hell. I was anxious to find out if anything suspicious popped on the x-rays. Of course when I called, it went straight to voicemail. In the last 13 months, I don’t think anyone has actually picked up the phone because they’re just so busy. Not a problem though. I just figured I would receive a call back on Monday.
Much to my surprise, the phone rang a few hours later and they had my test results. It turns out that everything was all clear. I told the nurse that I would probably be calling them back in about 2 weeks so we could talk about the med combo we’ll be using for IUI #5. I believe we’ll be sticking with the G.onal-F, but also adding M.enopur into the mix. I refuse to stim again for over 3 weeks. I had hoped that E would be home in time for the injections to begin since I heard that M.enopur stings and burns, but unfortunately his return date has been pushed back. Again. That’s a whole different story to be addressed at a different time. Maybe.
More good news is that my side effects from the allergic reaction to the iodine have finally gone away. I had to take B.enadryl several times a day for the past few days because of overall itchiness. I think I’m back to normal now.
So I’ve heard that some women are able to get pregnant the cycle of or the cycle after an HSG. Has anyone else heard/read about this? Maybe the same will be true for us? This is our last chance at having a 2012 baby and more importantly, having a baby before I turn the big 3-0 in December. If this IUI fails, then if we are lucky enough to get pregnant on IVF #1, the baby wouldn’t be due until the beginning of 2013. I want this last IUI to work for so many reasons. Please let it work.
