Karyotype results:


You would think this would be reassuring, but it's not.
It just leaves me wondering what the hell keeps going wrong.
I mean: yay it's nothing genetically fucked with us;
but boo that this unknown issue could happen again.

So, this just leaves the HSG...
which in all likelihood will come back normal.

And then, we'll have a conversation that goes something like this:

"You have PCOS idiot; this is the root of all evil your problems!" He smiles like a dimwit, "Better luck next time."

"Why thank you doctor, I am so glad I paid all that money out my ass for your expertise. We'll see how it goes."

"Awww, now don't be so down! Hopefully next time will get you out of my hair go better!" He nods his head like he really believes this.

"Sure it will Dr. Blowssunshine." I scream nod politely. "Sure it will."

And if the HSG shows something wrong?
To be honest... There's nothing we can do about it. My insurance I have now does not cover infertility, and I highly doubt my new insurance will either. So even if there is a uterine abnormality? I'd be jumping through hurdles to find an non-IF excuse for surgery. Or I'd be saving up money for surgery. Or, I will be solely focusing on adoption.

So while I would HATE the conversation above, I actually really hope we get to have it.

Well, if the HSG shows any uterine anomalies it's considered congenital and not infertility. My septum removal was completely covered.

If it shows anything with tubes, similiar, except I was coded as pelvic adhesions causing pain (probably a little borderline billing practice, but my RE was comfortable with it).

That being said, I don't wish either of the above on you. I hope that something much easier comes about - even if its just eat more protein.

Hang in there hun

Stupid PCOS. Stupid insurance. Stupid stupidness. Hopefully if they find anything it can be coded creatively so insurance covers it.

I'm not sure which scenario would be more difficult but I'm sorry you're in this position in the first place.

I hope things wrangle themselves into working out.

Sometimes no news is not good, either. I felt that way about our karyotypes and various other tests, thinking, surely there must be something specific they can pinpoint for both of us because maybe then it could be fixed. It's frustrating.

Sorry to hear your new insurance woes. We had no coverage, either, so we had to opt for a few interesting codings, too. I hope doc blowssunshine doesn't blow too much sunshine for you. A good doc is hard to find.

LOLOL at the way you put the conversation...

IF humour...New Flavours of Spring!

Hope the HSG comes out all-well...

Hmm, interesting. Sort of good news, but kind of bad news in that there's no answer to why you keep appearing to miscarry.

A coworker of my husband's has undergone IVF multiple times now, and we did not know this until recently but she's miscarried at least twice, early in the 1st trimester (by week 8 or so). As it turns out, her endometrium is not all that great, and she's struggling now with ways to plump it up. It was apparently nice enough to do the transfers, but maybe not as nice as it should have been.

I dont know how much endometrial monitoring you have done, but you may have interest to know one reason for multiple miscarriages without a genetic reason.

Sorry to hear about the waiting (post above). It sucks, I know.
