Angry Well Im back from the doctors......

and I don't know how to feel about it all.
I talked to the doctor and he doesn't really know what could be happining since I have two living children (from previous marriage). I suggested....yes I suggested having dh and I tested for choromisones (sp?) He said sure,but doubts there is anything wrong with me since.. again I have two living children.
He suggested to get a saline ultrasound done to see if there is anything in my uterus (fibroids,growths ect).I agreed,heck couldn't hurt.
He however doesn't want to do anouther hsg since Im getting pregnant there is obviously no blockage,though he did say that ALL of my pregnancys could be getting caught in the tube,but the hsg wont say if or why
 
(dnt agree but hey who am I)
Then after that he said we could try to get pregnant on our own and when I get pregnant take Heprin. NOTE: my blood tests didn't come back saying I have a clotting disorder but he says there so many different kinds that it could be an issue.
 

Then he said if that doesn't work then we can do IVF!
Umm ok but we don't know why I cant stay pregnant how will doing IVF change anything? Just me thinking outloud.
So thats it....that is all I got out of him!
I don't know what to think,I cry I get hopefull but all in all I really don't think there going to figure it out...I really don't!
Oh and I even suggested the test that Deanne's dh had done and he said its not conclusive and he wont do it!
 

As you can tell Im not really happy about the answers I got today,I wasn't expecting a mirical but maybe a more aggressive approach besides this and IVF!

A lot can happen in 10+ years time! Is this the only specialist you can go to? It sort of sounds like he's going past everything that could get you answers and into the big stuff. You have no problems at all getting pg, its keeping the pg after its started. While it could be on your end, it could also be on your DH's! He doesn't have any children correct? With his line of work I'd think they'd look at him first as its much easier to do a sperm analysis then anatomical stuff on you I'd think.

Are there any lifestyle changes the two of you could do that would increase your chances of a healthy baby?

Dh doesn't have any children.The doctor said that since his sperm analysis back in 1/08 came out fine. The test that Deanne mentioned is more complicated then just a sperm analysis and it costs over $5,000 and our insurance doesn't cover it.
As for another doctor there is another one closer but not has recomended as this one,so I can only imagine what he would say.
I'm trying to loose weight (doctor mentioned that too) and we are both on Multi vits. I excersice and so does dh.
I just don't know what to think really...

Sorry to hear that you didn't get any concrete answers. I think that Laura might be right, it might be a good idea to see a different specialist if this one is not taking the aggressive approach you want. No harm in looking for a second opinion, right? Doctors can be really frustrating because they don't always listen to everything their patients are saying
