A lot has happened since first meeting our doctor. I've been trying to play catch up since we started treatment over a month ago, but this blog is only a week old! Here's a timeline update:
September 19th: First appointment with our fertility doctor.
September 20th: My blood work came back and I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I started taking Prometrium to induce a period.
September 25th: Had further blood tests, thyroid exam (found nothing wrong) and was prescribed 50mcg of Synthroid a day. I will probably be taking it for the rest of my life.
September 26th: Met with my gynecologist and got her up to date. Free Prenatal vitamins, yay!
October 3rd: After taking the Prometrium for 10 days my period started just three days later.
October 5th: Went to the doctor for blood work and a follicular ultrasound. Everything looked great! Except my bladder was so full in preparation for the blood work that he couldn't see anything until I emptied it. I came back and my bladder was in the shape of a heart so he gave me an ultrasound picture for kicks and giggles. I got blood work done for an OAR, Anti-Mullerian Hormone, and TSH for my thyroid. My thyroid went down quite a bit which is great! Also my Ovarian Assessment Report came back and it was like I got straight A's! We're in the clear there. I also started taking 5mg of Femara today.
October 9th: Finished taking Femara. I didn't experience any side effects thankfully.
October 11th: The dreaded HSG! My next post will have all the details.
That's a wrap! Just keeping it positive :)
