Unexplained Infertility

My husband and I have been together for 7 years, married for 3. We have been wanting a baby for at least 3 years now. We finally sought out a specialist January of 2006 and had all the testing done. Everything came back normal and we were categorized as "Unexplained Infertility". This is where our long road started and has yet to come to an end.

We decided to try IUI. The first round we did with clomid and no success. The 2nd IUI we did with Clomid and estrogen patches... No success. IUI#3 we did with Femara ... No success. IUI#4 with femara again...NO Success. The thoughts running through my mind of "will it never happen for us" were seeming to become a reality.

Finally September of 2007 we got everything together to do IVF. This was the most exhausting experience yet. They retrieved 18 eggs, 17 of the 18 were mature and out of the 17 8 of them fertilized. 2 Of them were implanted and 4 of the remaining 6 made it to the blast stage and were frozen. I went in for a blood test on 11/09/07 and my results were DEVASTATING... Negative. "How could this not work? What is wrong with me, am I being punished for something?" I spent the majority of the weekend recovering from my worst nightmare.

Today I made the phone call to my Dr to let him know my cycle had started yesterday and see what he suggested. We are going for round #2 and using 2 of the frozen embryos. I hope this is our last time and that we can finally start our family.
