First appt with RE

So today I had my first visit with an RE. Basically my DH and I just talked to him about how long we have been trying and then he performed a transvaginal ultrasound (my first). He said everything looked healthy and that there were lots of eggs in the ovaries. Then both my DH and I had blood work done. MY DH is dropping off a semen sample to their office in the next day or so and I was supposed to have my HSG test tomorrow but the only time the radiology dept could squeeze me in was at a time when I absolutely can't make it. So, it looks like I wont be able to do that until my next cycle but the nurse told me I should still be able to go ahead and do IUI next month even if the results from the test aren't in yet. My doctor and I both feel like my inability to conceive is due to the LEEP procedure I had in 2008, although he said my cervical scarring is not that bad from what he could see. Anyways, hopefully IUI will help us have a baby. I am so thankful to have this support group because no one I know in real life can relate to what I'm going through.

Thanks for your words of encouragement. I would say we've been actively trying for 5-6 months using opks but we've never prevented in the 2.5 years we've been married. I've never been on birth control.

The doctor didn't mention any meds. I ovulate and my periods are regular, just a little long at around 31 days for my cycle. We will be going back to the doctor on feb 1st to go over our blood results and my husbands semen analysis. Hopefully we will have a better idea of our next step after that appointment.
