Thank you everyone for your support and advice.
I’ll definitely weigh the pros and cons before deciding on the Lap. I specifically asked for a less invasive procedure (HSG or SHG), but my doc recommended the Lap. I didn’t get to ask him why exactly, since he was too busy to speak to me. I will follow up with him at some point.
I think my doc is hoping that there is some Endo or perhaps a polyp or fibroid or SOMETHING that would get in the way of implantation, causing all these chemical pregnancies. The nurse said he thought it would be best because they could find and remove any abnormalities. Although, there might not be anything there – so I am hesitant to do it.
I am leaning toward getting the surgery. One reason is that I would probably always wonder if we should have done it, if we don’t. I would rather not have any regrets or suspicions. Then again, it IS surgery, which is serious business (no matter if it’s minor or major) and it’s costly.
I don’t have to decide anything yet though. And who knows, maybe my test results from Dr. Sher will actually reveal something new and important. Or maybe I should speak to a new RE to get a fresh perspective altogether.
We may not ever find another reason for my numerous early losses. It may very well be poor egg quality. I guess I want to exhaust every avenue before either giving up, using donor eggs/embryos, or whatever other paths we could go down in the future.
I’m going to do my best to relax for awhile. Someone asked if I had tried acupuncture – yep, we have tried it all 🙂 Although I should be doing acupuncture more regularly, I can’t afford to right now. Another person asked about IRH in Cincinnati. I think they are pretty good for the most part. I got treated a lot better during my IVF cycle than I am now. I’m consulting with Dr. Sher because he is one of the best docs in the country – and it’s free 🙂 (except for the testing) http://www.haveababy.com
Oh, and someone commented on one of my recent posts about understanding that doctors (Dr. Sher specifically) are very busy. I know that, and I don’t mean to sound ungrateful for their help and expertise. It’s just right now especially, I’m so desperate and depressed about my losses and failed cycles. I don’t have much patience left. I have also paid out a TON of money for testing and other things lately, so that also adds to my frustration of not being able to speak with anyone.
