Fertility

So today I met with a new doctor that I am going to refer to as Dr. M. She was awesome. I tell you having a doctor you feel comfortable with is so important! She & I went over my conditions & what is to come & of course the next step for me to conceive & she decided that putting me on Clomid was the best thing for me. I was hesitant before about starting fertility because A: I still wanted to conceive naturally B: I think I was in denial & C: Cost. We have never been concerned with multiples.. well at least I haven't, Stephen is still scared. I think our biggest concern was cost, but after speaking with Dr. M she said she has never had anyone tell her that it was not affordable & that the generic is covered by my insurance so we will see. I will start it this month & she gave me 6 refiles. She also told me to buy a ovulation test so I can make sure I am ovulating & so we know for sure. So I am scared.. but excited that our chances of conceiving are higher now & that the waiting is almost over for us to have another baby.
Dr. M feels this is the best thing for me at this time since we are wanting more children. She said that I am going to need to have a hysterectomy once I am done having babies due to my medical conditions but that carrying the baby should not be an issue.. but that they will monitor me through my first trimester just to make sure. She said with Clomid there are risk of cyst forming on my ovaries but she didn't seem to concerned with it at the moment.
So I am really excited & happy that we can now hopefully get pregnant & soon. I will keep you posted once I start the Clomid this month & let you know my progress & all the side effects so that other people who are considering this can see my experience.
Dr. M said that if this does not work in 6 months she has one other oral medicine to put me on & then if that does not work then I have to see a specialist about other forms of fertility.
So cross your fingers for us & keep us in your prayers that we can conceive & soon with a healthy baby in the next few months.
