Can I use both of these interchangeably? Maybe we had to go through that. Maybe that's what we had to go through.

Hi Sinem, your picture is a perfect representation of those two phrases. Both are correct, but I would tend to add the word 'just' with the meaning of 'just one of those things that happen' When speaking these phrases, the word 'had' would be emphasised (said a little louder). - Maybe we just had to go through that. - Maybe that's just what we had to go through.

Yep. They both sound good to me.
