So sometimes no news isn't good news.

I had my HSG today. I was so worried that it was going to be painful, but being a pharmacist, I knew to load up on naproxen. It was a totally awkward thing to have to do (I will save you from the details), but I have to say, it wasn't so bad. Would I want to have another one? Uh, no thanks, but it could have been a lot worse.  That is the good news. 

The "bad" news is that everything came back normal. You might scratch you head and ask why normal is a bad thing. And I guess it isn't really, but I was hoping this test would find a problem and be able to fix it. Not the case. So, I guess it is back to the drawing board. But I just feel like we have searched for all possible answers and that there is no explanation to why this keeps happening. 

The only ray of hope today is that, I have heard anecdotally, women who have an HSG tend to get pregnant a month or two after the procedure. I have heard that it could possibly "flush out the lines" if there was a small blockage in the tubes, and that sometimes it can aid in fertilization. So I guess we will wait and see. Maybe the doc has some aces up his sleeve that I am not aware of.  I will follow up with him in a week or so.

Thanks again for all of your love and support. Keep it coming and I will keep you all posted. :)
