Infertility

So after two years of not being on birth control, and just using the if it happens method of birth control, I finally decided to go to the doctor to see what was going on. For woman who have gone through this and not really serious about being pregnant because they weren’t sure that it was for them, I went into the situation with no expectations.  Imagine my surprise when I found that I don’t ovulate my progesterone level was 0.4…. yes go ahead and drop your mouth because that’s how I felt also.  I’ve been pregnant before so how could I not be ovulating? What’s going on? The doctor told me from a test that I had taken a few years earlier that then the level was only 0.8….

But being that I’ve been through so much I tried not to break a sweat, and the next question out of my mouth was okay, what can we do to fix it? They told me Clomid, which would give me a 60% chance of getting pregnant over the next 6 months (along with a 5% chance of twins) so I said well bring it on then!! LOL, I know it may sound funny but I’m happy to know what’s going on with my body and to know that there is something I can do to help.  I still believe that regardless it will happen if it’s suppose to and if it doesn’t well then….Life goes on and I just live it the best way I can.

 

Peace and Love,
