RE appointment tomorrow! A little nervous....

Postby 10thtimearound » Thu Feb 21, 2013 2:37 am

I am pretty nervous about see RE...last time she wanted to do injects and I was 39. My hubby and I declined and got pg on our own 7 months later. I am hoping she thinks clomid or femera will be a good first place to start this time. I will be paying out of pocket and injects with monitoring will run about 2,500 a cycle...so really hoping for clomid :)

Don't you worry, you'll do fine! Although Femera/Letrazole is not made for TTC, it is used by REs if you sign a waiver. This does not stay in your system (out of your system before you O) so there is no harm to the baby. Plus the side effects are nothing compared to Clomid. If your RE suggests injectables perhaps ask about Femera first as an alternative prior to injectables .... Wishing you the best of luck!

Yeah!! No injects! Start with Cd 3 hormone Panel.Then Clomid with natural cycle and then if no BFP She wants to start IUI with Clomid. I am so relieved!
