my background

So my DH graduated in May from law school. He doesn't have a job yet, but that's okay, he'll find one. So we decided we're 'ready' for a family ( we think ) and are going to start trying. Of course we know I already have 'issues' so I had to check with the OB to see what's going on. He calls it amenorrhea (not having cycles normally). I'd already talked to him back in April about this after my last doc couldn't figure out the cause either. Best guess they are giving me so far is that it's related to taking DepoProvera. But I'm not so sure, I've never been exactly normal in that arena, even before any drugs.

Anyway, he says we've got to be tested in three areas 1-sperm, 2-eggs & 3-tubes/uterus.. this results in a blood test & a HSG for me plus a semen analysis for DH. So we're off for tests & will see where we get..
