Welcome to yet another infertility blog...

Greetings to all who come this way! Come, have a seat. Make yourselves comfortable. Mind the cat hair on the sofa. I've been reading infertility blogs and commenting on them somewhat frequently, so I figured I'd join the scrum since I'm about to start treatment myself. I'm Francie. I'm a 31-year-old lawyer living in the Northeast USA, been married for nearly 5 years, trying to conceive for since December 2007 (and "not preventing" since December 2006) with no success. Next month I'll be starting my first IUI with Clomid and Ovidrel. We'll see how it goes. The cause of the infertility isn't clear. After the first year or so, we saw an RE who discovered a large polyp in my uterus. Lap surgery done in April '09 and it was removed, along with some mild endometriosis as a bonus feature. We've been trying naturally since then with no success. I have never, ever gotten pregnant. My husband's first semen analysis came up "a little low" according to the RE, but I have never seen the results so I don't know what that means. We have started with a new RE, who recommended doing IUI's with Clomid and Ovidrel for 3 months, and see where it gets us. I'm excited but also very aware that it may fail repeatedly, so I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much. Thanks for reading!


  1. Hoping IUI#1 is a roaring success! :-)

  2. Welcome to blogging and the blog roll. I hope the clomid/iui combo works for you :)

  3. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
