Its been a while since I first started this blog so I guess its time for me to add an introduction. C and I tried for 4 years to get pregnant on our own (with one mc in there). We finally went to an RE and got pregnant with D on our first clomid cycle. D was born born prematurely - at 31 weeks - due to a previously undiagnosed bicornuate uterus. He spent 7 weeks in the NICU but now he is a strong, healthy almost 4 year old. When D was about a year old we starting trying again. I went back to the same RE and thought clomid would do the trick again. Well, we tried 8 clomid cycles total (with 4 IUIs) with no luck.
After that, we took a break for a while and actually got pregnant on our own last year. Unfortunately, I lost that baby at 12 weeks. A few months after that, I found a new RE and thought I'd see what he had to say. I really liked him - he was much more personable and would take the time to actually explain things. On my first clomid cycle with my new RE in Januaray of this year, I had several good follicles on my right side (my left ovary never really developed so I only have one working ovary). After the trigger and IUI, I had excrutiating pain and ended up in the ER diagnosed with a very large cyst. Seems that even though I has several good follicles I did not ovulate that month after all (maybe the cyst prevented ovulation???). It took a few months for the cyst to go away. I have done two other clomid cycles since then and neither of them produced any follicles at all. Doctor thought I was going through pre-mature menopause but my FSH levels are still under 10. I havn't been back to talk to him since I got those test results back.
Does anyone know if it is possilbe that the cyst could have damaged my ovary so I am not longer producing follicles. Thats the only thing I can think of since I had always responded to clomid before.
Last time I saw him (when he thought my FSH would be high), he mentioned donor eggs, however, by that time, C and I had already decided to adopt. I'll post more later about the adoption process so far. I has been a whirlwind already.
