My initial visit was yesterday and I met with Dr. Combs and Dr. Retzloff. I thought it was just going to be like a "hello, this is what our program does, these are the further tests you need, etc" but it was completely different! First we went over our history of TTC and then our past and current medical issues. Then Dr. Combs said "Okay well we are going to take you next door to do an ultrasound to take a look at your ovaries" What?? I didn't know we were going to be doing that! It was a good surprise because I definitely want to get going. And I was shocked that they focused more on me than DH. I thought it would be kinda equal since he has a low sperm count. Anyway, that's when Dr. Retzloff came in and talked to us for awhile. So, after the u/s they both came back into the other room and talked to us about starting with IUIs for 3 months since they feel that DH is in the moderate range as far as low sperm count. I'm happy but scared at the same time because I want to start the process but the odds are not in our favor for IUI. They said after 3 months we could look at IVF. I told them we would be interested in doing IVF and are ready to go whenever we can get in! So they left us with saying, call us once you start your next cycle so we can start monitoring! I have never wanted my AF to come so bad in my life!
