Oh my gosh this thread is in SERIOUS need of some good news! What the HECK?!
Indie- Sending you a HUGE hug- I've been there on the crying/second guessing myself for days. I don't even feel like crying this month, I'm frusterated, but in a non-emotional kind of way. It is sad it gets to this. I agree with sherry that I don't think you are pre-menopausal. You will be glad you get answers at your RE appt. I promise you will be glad to have answers. My opinion was, if IVF is really my only option (low ovarian reserves, double blocked tubes, or whatever). I would need to do a LOT of soul searching. In a way, 'unexplained infertility' is just as trying, there is no answer. But, we are all here to help you along. My advice, bring a list of questions, a lot of them will be answered before you ask them. Ask how you contact the DR if (read- when) you get home and think of something else. I never did this, and I still don't know how to ask things... I usually call my nurse, but I wish I knew how to actually get through to my doctor.
stasi- I don't know anything about Provera or cysts, but that does seem like a lot of meds for a long time. I hope those cysts go away. Do they have any idea why they are showing up? Do you have PCOS?
gtree- WTH on your body not ovulating... Why are they keeping you on the same Clomid again next time if it didn't work this time? I giggled at your math equation. It is nice to have that control over things though so you know you can be home and DH can be home. Can't even try to make a baby without the right parts!
sherry- in your medical experience- what is the benefit of metformin with no PCOS. I have mucous stagnation common with PCOS but no PCOS and was thinking of trying NAC which is natural and works similar to metformin and is used as some sort of mucous mover... I'm not sure if I got all that right... but I don't want to try it if it can scew up anything else. Seriously, I'm like, ready to try anything (as if I don't already take a whole pharmacy of pills recomended by this person or taht person), but I'm more curious after what you said earlier about the kidneys and met and whatnot.
AFM I am heading out for my beta- it feels like an embarrassment at this point to have to draw the blood and wait for the call and how sad (ie. fake) they sound when they say 'I'm really sorry, your beta numbers were negative'--- no sheet, I tested at home, I've been waiting for AF for 3 days. She isn't coming today though, looks like I'll have to wait til tomorrow, no cramps yet.
