Despite earlier extenuating circumstances that made this month seem like a no-go, here I am for another installment of my never-ending ttc saga. Sticking with the same plan as last time (with a few hiccups), here's the rundown of what's going on with me:
CD 3 - 7: Femara/letrozole 2.5mg for superovulation
CD 11: Ultrasound showed multiple follicles (17mm, 15mm, 15mm, two other smaller ones), but my lining was considered thin at 6.7mm
CD 11 p.m.: Start Estrace/estradiol twice a day for two weeks to thicken and support lining
*I am currently here*
CD 12 a.m.: Ovidrel trigger injection (to be self-administered -- yikes)
CD 13: IUI scheduled
CD 14 - 27: Infinite waiting
I have never had issues with my lining before (normally the techs talk about how "beautiful" it is), so that was a bit of a curve ball, and I have my concerns about adding yet another prescription hormone, but this is my last medicated cycle before my clinic will require a month's break, so I figured why not give the doctors the benefit of the doubt. Presumably they do this all the time and know what they're doing -- I mean, they are the medical professionals. I'm ready for my bfp or a break, though. These meds have not been fun, and I would kind of like to have my sex drive back. Here's to hoping! AF is due on Halloween. Trick or treat... hahaha.
I would appreciate any similar experience, wisdom, or well wishes. Sending you all my best.
