You need to see an ob/gyn to be evaluated for causes of infertility.
To AJD it sounds like you have been managed quite well. I wouldn't pay much attention to an u/s tech and comments about infection. That was based upon what? Talk to your doctor...you have been receiving wise care.
Have you tried taking your temp each morning to find out when you ovulate? There are alot of trying to concieve sites out there. What methods are you using to try to get pregnant? You should go to the Dr. though. They can check and see what is going on. There are soo many reasons that it could be. Only with testing can you know for sure.
I am well over 40yrs old and pregnant with my 3rd child. A week ago after getting very nauseated after a plane ride, being late for my period, I took a pregnancy test and to my surprise it was positive. On Monday, I called my doctor and his nurse made an appointment for me to come in Tuesday for a HCG test. The test was positive for pregnancy, low HCG levels (397). So, my doctor ordered another test in 48hrs, this test showed that the HCG doubled. I have another one this coming Tuesday. However, in the meantime, I started bleeding. At first it was medium like a period with small clots. I called my doctor and he said that I may be miscarrying and that I should watch that the bleeding does not get too heavy with cramping, call if this happens. Well, with bed rest all this weekend, the bleeding is lighter, but still bleeding, only when I urinate (dark red). I have been bleeding now for almost a week. About an hour ago, I am afraid that I am having a miscarriage. I am trying not to worry, but it is difficult. I want to have this baby. Has anyone had a similar experience and still went on to have a healthy baby?
Well, since I posted my question, I have been to the doctor every 48hrs to check my hcg levels. At first, I was having increases, but still not doubling. My highest was 2300 and on the next blood test a week this time, my numbers dropped to 1100(last week). Well, I was called into the doctor's office and told that with the light bleeding and drop in numbers, I was surely miscarrying the baby and I should experience heavy cramping and bleeding before and during the miscarriage. So far, I have not experienced any of that and the bleeding has stopped, with just spotting when I wipe after using the restroom. I was scheduled to return to the doctor to follow-up of hcg levels...doctor's thoughts were that the level should be close to zero in a week. Well, to his and mine the levels had increased to over 3000. He immediately scheduled me for a sonogram to see what is going one. According to the sonogram, the sack looks abnormal and empty. He said the shape should be round and mine is not, kind of oval in shape with a wavy side. Also, by may calculations, I should be 7wks (last per Mar 8), but the sack measurements are for 4wks. His concern is the shape of the sack and not heart beat. I will have another sonogram in a week. I am still praying for a miracle.
After my second sonogram(5/8/08), there is little change and I am still spotting. The doctor asked if I still want to allow things to happen naturally and I decided to wait on nature. However, the ultrasound tech, told my mother that she detected an infection, but nothing was done to treat it. I learn about this a few minutes ago after talking to my mother. Should the doctor be treating the infection since this may be causing the bleeding?
