The first thing the Reproductive Endocrinologist at the fertility center wanted to do was a hysterosalpingogram. This is an imaging test where radiography technicians instill a dye into the uterus, then take x-rays of the abdomen to see where the dye goes. It can be helpful in ruling out structural problems that may be a cause of female infertility. I wasn’t able to go with Molly for the test (I had to be out of town), but luckily her mom was able to go with her for support.
Unfortunately, you can’t do an insemination the same month you do a hysterosalpingogram so we had so miss a month of trying. While that’s frustrating, we both know the imaging study is a necessary part in figuring out the way that will maximize our chances of becoming pregnant.
