When DH and I went to the doc at first and had blood tests, I came back with high FSH, and the doc explained what that meant in detail. DH and I both went home feeling like we had been given an explanation for WHY I had not become pregnant and had been encouraged to go straight to IVF.
When we went back to the doctor, we ended up seeing a different doctor that day at the clinic who told us that the high FSH was not the reason WHY we weren’t getting pregnant, that it was still unknown. And I said ‘Don’t we want to investigate further why?’ The answer was no because the solution to whatever they find would be IVF and we were already doing it.
I’m annoyed with this aspect of the treatment. I want to be pregnant as soon as possible, but sometimes I wonder if it wasn’t something minor that could have been fixed before doing IVF. And then there is the lingering feeling that even if IVF works, there is still something ‘wrong’ with us that is still unknown and what if this presents further medical complications down the road. Also, the idea of going through IVF for a second or third child is daunting. This experience has been trying enough.
Did anyone else feel this way or did you all get solid diagnoses?
