Today was my follow up at Cleveland Clinic. I met with Dr. Goldberg and I now feel a million times better.
I’m mad because I wasted so much time and money at the other office, but I am thankful to have a doctor that listened to me and then gave me a realistic breakdown and a plan.
As of right now, I have about a 2% chance of conceiving naturally with only timed intercourse each month (keep in mind normal fertile couples only have a 20% chance every month). I have officially been placed in the unexplained infertility category.
Which is right where I thought we were.
My plan of action is simple. I have about a 10% chance per month with an IUI with clomid or injectables. Since I ovulate, injectables are pointless for me. So we’re going to be doing 4 IUI’s with clomid over the next 4 months. If those fail we discuss IVF.
So if I am not knocked up by November, we wait a year, saving money like crazy and do IVF. If we get lucky we will only be out $450 times whatever number IUI is successful.
Either way its diagnosis, a plan, and a realistic breakdown of my chances. The one thing I have been looking for this entire time.
