im about to cry. They said they want to call the RE. WTF? They have nothing to do with this. When I went in there I was on lupron at the time. We already decided that it was from the YI. So now they are saying it was from the lupron. I said no it's not. I havent been on the lupron in weeks and I have taken it a million times. You cant say it's something that is not. She said they gave me the highest dosage and they wont treat it again if it didnt work the first time. Said I might need to go to an OBGYN. I said I cant suffer like this all weekend. It burns so bad. I just need those pills. What do I? I want to cry. I'll come in after my period. Just give me some relife.

Hello everyone!

Jenny - I just wanted to let you know that when I had my d&c, I bled heavily after about 2 weeks afterwards. Well, it would be light and pink one day, then profuse and thick the next... In total, I bled for 19 days including spotting afterwards. I hope it's not that much for you. In total, my cycle that month lasted 36 days, then I got my normal period again. I hope that helps. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better. My heart goes out to you.

Tracy - I am so relieved to hear everything was OK. I think I would have totally flipped out. I psyched out when I started spotting after my IVF, so I can't imagine all that blood at 11 weeks. I'm so glad it turned out well, though!

Mere - Sorry about the BV being so bad. I really think you need to get that taken care of, whether you feel better tomorrow or not. Sorry DH doesn't want to deal with IVF anymore. I'm sure that's really hard on you. The good thing is that he still doesn't mind if you continue, so I say, go girl!

Jules - can't wait to hear from you today!

Yaya - you are too funny! It would be awesome if the IUI did its thing! Now that the trigger is leaving... You never know! GL!

Quinn - I'm so glad everything worked out for you yesterday. I can't wait to hear some good news!

Lorrie - You must be getting anxious... One more week until testing! Do you think you will test early? I imagine a HPT will work soon!

Friday night - I woud LOVE LOVE LOVE to get together with you all for drinks tonight!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Mere, have you tried baths like Cathy suggested. I have never had BV, but I have a couple YI per year and in '04 I got one that caused residual burning AFTER it was treated. I ended up thinking I had something but I really didn't. Eventually I was given cortisone but what happened was that my pelvic muscles went into spasm from the pain and I had to do physical therapy to loosen them and stop the tension. I am not saying that is what you definitely have but this area can be tricky. When I get pain or infections now, I make sure to soak the area and keep my muscles un-clenched. Esp. if you say it burns, because that was the primary symptom I had at the time too.

stboom - I'm sorry I missed your post! You wouldn't "do" something to yourself, would you? You know we're all here for you, and if you need to talk to someone in person, please PM me and I'll send you my phone number. We're all behind you, honey! I'm glad DH talks to you about it all and your mom too. We'll get through this!

Cathy - how's the Lupron going? I'm on it sooooo long this time! I start stims Oct 23rd, and I'm on Lupron until then, but stop it completely once I start stims to try to get more eggies this time! I've been feeling fine so far, but not looking forward to the Lupron headache that is sure to attack at any moment.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I won't be in touch because I'll be in Boston, but I'll be checking in tonight and look forward to catching up on Monday!

Love to you all!

Pam - I missed your post. No, I don't think I would. Does it cross my mind, sometimes. I just hate thinking about this everyday of my life. It doesn't help that my friend at work is 28 weeks. She is good about not talking about it to me, but I just want to be pregnant. I just can't even imagine my life without worrying about this everyday. It would be great!!

hi pam. thanks for checking in. you always have such a positive attitude. you are such a sweetheart.

stboom - if your betas go down on your own then does that mean you don't have to worry about ectopic?

Does everyone want me to start our official new group? I would be happy to. I am alone on the couch all day can you tell. lol

Mere - get that Vagisil test kit and see if your PH is elevated. That will give you a clue that it is definitely the BV again.

Thank you girls. I was seriously crying cause Im in pain and to go all weekend with no relief in site made my cry. I just dont need this right now. I called my RE and they will help me. Thank god for them. They are so nice. She looked at my past and said that it might not have been gone the last time and sometimes it take more then one treatment to be gone. She said that it the hormones could have caused the reocurrence of it caues it messed up your PH balance. She said if this doesnt work then I will use the cream after AF is done. She said the pills are what im taking now again. She is calling it in to my pharmacy and just needs the RE's ok. But she said he'll say yes. I told her I was crying and thanked her so much. She said she can understand and to use desiten by the opening and by where I pee to help with the burning. She said the area is very sensitive and irritated and PH balance in urine is high and it's like putting acid on it. I said yes that is what it feels like. She said you dont you want to go pee do you? I said no it's horrible. I wish I would have call them before but I didnt know they would help me. I

thought my family doctor could get me in and then do a sample and give me meds. They told me that I was on the highest dosage and if it came back it could be something else. I said it's not. She said it's the lupron I said no it's not. I know about all this stuff. They are stupid. What kind of doctors are theese. She is not budging and will not give you anything. You need to call an OBGYN and we will not be able to help you any further. That is how they treated me. She made it seem like this is an STD and it's beyond them. They tested me for it last time and said it shouldnt have came back. But my RE nurse said it's common to come back.

sorry to go on. thanks for listening.

Stboom- I hope they call soon. I know you cant wait to know what is going on.

pam- Have a great time in Boston. I hope it turns out to be a better anniversary for you. Gives us all the details on your returnt.

quinn- Wow that was horrible about the cordisone doing that. Crazy. I hate going into bathtubs. I know it sounds weird but they seem dirty to me. I just get grossed out laying a bath tub. Just happen the last few years. Is that weird or what? I'll see how the pills help first and if not i might do it. Plus AF on top of this. UGH.

Mere - no it was the yeast that caused the burning, not the cortisone. The cortisone treated it. I am glad you got your meds. I hope that is the end of this for you.
