hi guys. I am so happy that i found this message board.
i am new to all of this...infertility, though, prolly had it all along.
i am so, so scared. just want to share my story and see if anyone has any thoughts.

i had my first appointment with the RE 3 days ago.
I don't understand what is wrong with me. I had regular periods all my life, until these past 2 years. now, periods every 3 months, and my current period has lasted 3 months now.
today, i went and had 12 vials of blood draw, have a hsg and sono hsg scheduled, husband will do his sperm analysis.
i had one ectopic pregnancy in 2007.
1 chemical in 2008, 2009, and again in 2010.
since 2007, i have had a TON of weight gain...used to be 120 pounds. am embarassed to say how much i weigh now.
hubby and i have been married for 4 years how.

i am so scared to find out there is something wrong with me, that i am broken. or that i cannot have a baby.
can't tell any of my friends, they don't understand, and then, culturally, i will become the center of all of their gossip.
this is so painful. :(

First of all, know that you are not alone. Millions of women share experiences of going through fertility treatment, and that's why this forum is so brilliant, we can be there for one another. In the short time that I have been a member here, this forum has given me much strength and endurance to keep going. I pray it will help you as well. I wanted to clarify but did I read that your current cycle has lasted 90 days? Are you currently taken on any meds? I would hope the doctor can provide some insight and give you some much needed answers, but we're here too if you ever just need someone to talk to.
