HSG Decision

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the sweet comments and advice on my last post. I seriously couldn't go through this journey without you ladies!

After some discussing, we've decided to do the HSG, just not this cycle. The hospital where I would get the procedure done has an out of pocket cost estimator on its website, and it estimates that the HSG would be $2,968 plus the x-ray which is $684. Total, we're looking at $3652 out of pocket if our insurance doesn't cover anything (which we're assuming it won't.) However, I'm still on my parent's insurance (for what reason, I don't know,) so my dad suggested that I call up that company to see what their policies on infertility procedures are. I'm going to do that Monday and see what they say. I'm not holding my breath because it's insurance from Missouri, and we're in Mississippi, but we'll see what happens. It can't be any worse than the insurance from Michigan that we're currently working with. If neither insurance will help with the cost, then we're going to have to move some money around and get close to $4000 ready for next cycle.

As for this cycle, we're just going to continue doing what we have been. Like Mrs E said, we've only had a few ovulatory cycles, so hopefully we just need a few more and we'll get pregnant on our own. Maybe this cycle will be it!

Again, thank you for all of the support. I don't know what I'd do without you ladies!

  3. I'm glad you have a plan =) I hope (and hope and hope!) that you get pregnant on your own, and you'll never have to bother with the HSG. Also, just know that your feelings--especially the upset, frustrated ones--are so normal, and you're definitely not alone! No one should have to go through this, and I'm so sorry you are. I think you have a great attitude though. Just keep hoping, and know that we're all here, cheering you on (and ready to support you if you need it!) Have a great weekend!
