Let’s Play a Game!

Do you have unexplained infertility?

Have you had some kind of blood test/treatment/procedure or taken some kind of supplement/vitamin/shady internet herbal tea that helped you diagnose or improve your issues?

If this sounds like you, then please leave a comment below!  My insurance is currently being super accepting of all of this testing I keep asking for, so I am willing to have just about any and everything done to explain my unexplained infertility.

I mean hey – why not, right?

Here’s a brief rundown of what we’ve tried so far:


  • Natural cycles… hahaha…


  • Thyroid blood work – normal
  • Thyroid u/s – normalHSG – tubes open and clear
  • Semen analysis – normal on all counts
  • Clomid (TI, no u/s monitoring) – ovulation confirmed w/blood work
  • EPO + baby aspirin – umm… yeah.  I was an uninformed victim of Dr. Google.


  • CD3 E2, LH, FSH – all normal
  • CD21 Progesterone – good
  • Antral Follicle Count – good
  • Femara + Ovidrel (TI, u/s monitoring) – respond well


  • Semen analysis – low morphology (2%)
  • Clomid + Novarel (IUI x4) – respond well
  • Femara + Menopur + Ovidrel – respond well
    • (BFP, MMC at 9wks)
  • Chiropractic & massage


  • Repeat semen analysis – all great, morphology up from 2% to 12%
  • AMH tested – low-normal (2.5)
  • Thyriod – low-normal (.80)

Scheduled tests for next week:

  • Vitamin D3
  • DHEA
  • Planning to ask for a full thyroid panel at PCP visit on Tuesday…


I swear I’m not a whack-job.

I just love this community, and trust that many of you have tried things I haven’t.  I’m willing to consider and research many options, so please feel free to suggest away.  If I have to be reduced to a reproductive science experiment, I might as well be an online public guinea pig, too.  😉

Thanks, friends!
