We had a follow up on Friday with the new RE. All the tests came back normal… well, not exactly normal, but as good as could be expected under the circumstances. 🙂 So we were cleared to start the IUI protocol. Woot!
And the big surprise… he says that there is a good amount of evidence that for pcos and iui… that statistically the most successful thing is to start right into the oral fem.ara. Usually they make you wait while they give you prog.esterone and then force a period. OR you can wait for MONTHS until nasty old AF shows up on her own, then start meds on CD3. But, as long as you’ve had a period in the last 2-3 months and your lining is the right depth… they are now finding the most success just jumping in and getting you started right away. So I left Friday night with my prescriptions and took my first dose THAT night! WOOOOOOOT!!!! 🙂 And even though it was really CD50 something, they are calling it CD3 and we’re just moving forward. Oh that’s music to my ears! (And if you’re wondering, I spotted for 3 days and dried up. No AF. Must have been spotting from the hsg.)
So I have 2 more days of oral meds before we start injections. And if everything goes well, we “should be” doing the artific.ial insem.ination by Valentine’s Day. In fact, they think it will be actually on the 14th. lol. No way to be sure of course, because it depends on how my ovaries react… but based on my profile, that’s their best guess. 🙂 What a romantic date! Haha. “What are you doing for Valentine’s?” …. “Oh we’re making a baby… in a doctor’s office… through a long plastic tube… we’re kinky like that.”
Crossing our fingers and all prayers appreciated! 🙂
