Can I be moved to waiting to O? AF arrived yesterday. We met with the RE Wednesday to chat. She can be rather scattered at times, but that day she was calm and clear. Sometimes we feel more confused after we talk to her than before, but this day we felt like we had gotten some good information and had a good plan in place. She suggested we do a hysteroscopy to look inside the uterus with a camera to see if anything is going on we couldn't see elsewhere. I couldn't get it scheduled for this month so we can do it next month if we don't have success this month. She also suggested metformin even though I don't have PCOS or blood sugar issues. She said it has higher success rates than Clomid, and that everyone prescribes it because good research came out about it so everyone tries it. She basically confirmed that fertility treatments are more of an art than a science. If a study comes out that says something works, everyone tries it until a new study comes out with some other news. Oh well! I might try it. What the heck! I'll try just about anything. I do bloodwork today and pick up my Femara to start tomorrow. I have an ultrasound on Monday to see what's happening and then I can start the shots. We still need to decide on a donor. DW is not conviced that we should switch since we don't know that the swimmers are the problem. That's a talk for this weekend.
Fingers crossed so tightly for you Outdoorsy and easttowest! Everything sounds good so far. Waiting is good, but I like testing on a weekday so I don't have to go to work afterwards. Cycle does not always permit that though.
Jenny - Fingers crossed tightly for you too! I'm glad you're refraining from POAS for the most part. Take it easy for the next week.
SanDiego -- I'm so sorry this cycle is not working out. That's frustrating and confounding. At least you know what's going on so you don't waste any expensive sperm. The shots are not bad at all. The needles are tiny. I do it myself. The first time my DW tried, she put the needle in and pulled it right back out because she was so nervous. I'm more calm so it's better if I do it. There seem to be a lot of ideas on when to do the acupuncture. I was told once a week. My acupuncturist said I could go on cycle day 10 and about 10 days after O when I needed to cut back due to the cost. This month I thought I would go less than 10 days after O to encourage implantation earlier. We'll see how it works.
