Outdoorsy, I haven't read the study, though I will now. In the meantime, what my doctor told me is that there is a higher incidence of ovarian cancer among women who take clomid, but some of that is likely due to the fact that women who are taking it are often dealing with infertility. Not giving birth to children also raises your risk of ovarian cancer apparently, and a significant percentage of women who take clomid for infertility don't ever get pregnant, and thus are at a higher risk anyway. Plus, those being treated for infertility (versus those doing it to better time insems) often use higher doses, again increasing the risk. Does that make sense? I haven't read the article yet, so perhaps it contradicts all of this. My take away from the doctor was that there is a small risk, but not a huge one. I will be taking clomid this next cycle for the first time, so I'm a bit nervous, but also ready to be pregnant.
Cananny, Thinking about you! Man, I hope this is it!
Carmen, Go EWCM!!! (Pre-ttc, would you ever have imagined getting excited about cervical mucous?!?)
Gelly, I'm really sorry about your BFN. I hope that your break is restorative and healthy.
Essenbee, Good luck with the end of your semester! I hope you have lots to keep you busy, and that the next month flies by.
Hopeful, Fingers crossed for you!
Invitin, I hope you're feeling better. Exciting to be heading back to the TTC train!
Nos, How are you feeling?
Soto, How's the caffeine detox going? I thought of you last weekend when, in the middle of WAY TOO MUCH family drama with my mother, I snuck away with my sister and drank a little bit of her coffee. Oops.:)
I'm sorry, I know I'm missing lots of people.
AFM, I have never been so impatient to get my period! I predict AF will arrive anytime between Friday and Monday, and then we can get started! I have clomid sitting on my dresser, a syringe full of Ovidrel in my fridge, and three vials of our new donor are flying across the country as we speak (type?). We have switched donors a bunch over the past few months (first there was the problem with DD's donor, then the problem with the donor we chose last cycle), so it feels like kind of a commitment to have three vials of the same one! But I'm tired of paying for shipping, so hopefully this one will work out. We already owned three vials, so that's how we chose that number.
In other news, we are at the absolutely crazy of the semester here, which means that I should be working, not MDC-ing, but I wanted to pop in and say hi. Happy Thursday!
