I have been quiet on my blog as you guys have probably noticed. I found that if I take a step away from my blog I don’t obsess over it as much and my break is a tiny bit easier to handle. I have read your entries, though I have been a bad commenter. I’ve just been trying to take a step back from having infertility in the front of my head every second of the day. I’m still a glutton for punishment and do things that I know might get to me, but that’s another story. I also waited to write because I had my consult with my RE today and I didn’t want my 100th entry (which will be next entry) to be a sad one. So here is my update.
I feel much better now that the consult is over. I was having visions of having to have a lap a day or two after christmas. My RE doesn’t think that I need to have one for at least two to three more cycles of things not working. It was also good to hear that he doesn’t think I’m likely to have tube issues. In this meeting we basically brainstormed what we would do next cycle. There are a lot of options and we didn’t really come to a conclusion. In the end he said that we should think about it and let him know what we decided. I am leaning towards one option, but I also want to hear what you guys think. So here are my options:
1. 150mg of Clomid
2. Femara for five days
3. Injectables (the smallest dose possible)
4. 100mg of Clomid and then a few days of injectables
I’m leaning towards #4. I did ovulate although really late on 100mg of clomid. Maybe the extra bit of injectables will do the trick and make things happen earlier. Or maybe I just need the extra push of a bit more clomid at 150mg. My RE said that Femara works for some people better than clomid, but there isn’t a huge group of people that it worked wonders for compared to clomid. Another part of me is like let’s just do this already and do injectables. I don’t know enough about femara so I have been googling. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about femara? I am feeling most strongly with #4, but I’m not 100% yet.
I asked about injectable monitoring so I would know how many days I had to be available in case I did get that position I was interviewing for. He said honestly not much more than you were already doing lol. I went in so much last cycle since it lasted so long. My second interview is tomorrow morning so we will see how things go. I am going to bring up that I am seeing a doctor for something and that appointments can pop up with little notice, but that I’ll stay late or come in early to cover my hours. So we will see how that goes.
