The HSG went well. It took a few minutes for the dye to spill but in the end both sides are clear.
Honestly, I'm actually disappointed. If they were still blocked then my insurance would kick in immediately and the plan for what needed to happen next was clearly laid out. I know that IVF is not anyone's idea of a good time but it was the path my brain was already half way down. Now I feel like I'm back where I started 2 years ago and I'm unsure what the next step is. I want to start trying this next cycle in order to take advantage of the fertility boost that an HSG can give but I'm not sure if I'll have all the details in place in time. I have maybe 3 weeks before I ovulate again but I haven't decided on a donor or where to go for the IUI's. Paying for everything? Yeah, that's another detail made more difficult by the fact that I just got laid off. I was at my now former job for over 10 years so I got a pretty decent severance package but now isn't the best time to be taking on the additional expense of trying to get pregnant. Postponing really isn't an option for me. I'm really feeling like I've already waited too long and the fibroid detour has already taken up too much precious time.
and how did it go with my mother? She came with me and asked if I wanted her to be in the room for the test. The first time I shouted 'Absolutely Not!' wasn't enough to keep her from asking 2 more times. She was just so pleased with herself for being there.
Next step: find a place to do IUI's that won't cost me a fortune.
