October 2012: Tried Naturally

November 2012: Birth Control due to Rubella Vaccine

December 2012: Failed HSG: Tight Cervix/ Catheter wouldn't go in

January 2013: Cervix dilation plus 2nd attempt at an HSG. Unsuccessful. Catheter still wouldn't go pass my cervix.

February 2013: RE decided that since all my other testing came out fine we will go ahead with IUI.

Feb 7-11 '13: Clomid 50mg

Feb 14 '13: Sonogram to check for follicle(s)

March 12 '13: Began Clomid 100mg CD5-9

March 15 '13: 3rd attempt on HSG; different location + Valium
Results: HSG confirmed left tube is BLOCKED; everything else is normal

March 19 '13: U/S confirmed 2 possible follicles measuring @ 12 & 13mm on right ovary =) OPEN SIDE! FX crossed! Left side has 1 possible measuring at 9mm..hopefully it does not decide to be the dominant one

April 8 '13: BETA revealed no pregnancy. Actively looking for a new RE.

May 16 '13: Had new RE consult. Immediately fell in love with staff and new RE. Went over my file from my previous RE and I was completely shocked on how little the previous RE had revealed on my current diagnosis. New RE wants to perform further testing to confirm PCOS since medically speaking I already meet 2 out 3 to be diagnosed with PCOS. (i.e. irregular periods and polycystic ovaries)She also wanted to perform a saline test + 3D u/s to confirm or rule out blocked tube and possibly having a tilted uterus. Opted out of doing any further medicated cycles until all test results came back.

May20 '13 Saline testing was performed with 3D u/s. Results: Uterus is normal. Blood results came back revealing elevated Prolactin levels. (Somehow may be connected with my PCOS.)Test was redone to confirm it was not a fluke.

June 12 '13: Follow up with Dr. B to go over results. All is fine besides my cholesterol, which I have known. Prolactin levels were a fluke back to normal. Saline test confirmed left tube is indeed blocked and revealing uterus is tilted to the right side. Discussed treatment options with an outcome of performing one last IUI then moving fwd with IVF.

June 19 '13 CD3 U/S: Go ahead to start letrozole on CD 5-9

June 27 '13 CD11 U/S revealed 4 antra follicles. 2 on each side. Left ovary: 16mm & 13mm (blocked side). Right ovary: 15mm & 12mm. Lining 7mm.

June 29 '13: Ovidrel shot @ 9:30pm. First time I gave it to myself and froze in place for like 5 minutes.

July 1 '13: IUI# 3: J provided his lowest sample ever. U/S revealed no ovulation yet but in the verge of ovulating.
