Not here

I have been on lupron thirteen days and off birth control for six days and still no damn AF. I kept hoping she would come during the day, but no dice. So it looks like I am going tomorrow morning to see what’s going on in there. It really stinks because tomorrow I have a conference right next to my house – literally a two minute drive. But instead of getting to enjoy that easy commute I have to drive into work where my RE is, get poked and prodded, and then drive back basically home for the conference. Maybe I will wake up tomorrow and she will show an then I won’t have to go in tomorrow.

The last time my period didn’t show in time I had taken prometrium for 10 days, waited two weeks and still no period. They checked my blood and scanned me. My blood results were fine, my lining was thin, and I had no cysts or anything bad so I got to start my cycle. I of course didn’t get pregnant that cycle though. I am hoping I get to start my injectables soon, but I am nervous. I hate not being able to start my cycle in the correct way. What if not having a period screws it up. I remember my nurse saying it wouldn’t mess anything up, but I just want everything to line up the way it’s supposed too so I have the highest chance of this working. I am so frustrated with this damn processes and my body.

I will update tomorrow with what happened at my appointment, what the plan is, and hopefully a better intro to iclw. I really hope she shows up soon. Damn af I don’t need this.



  1. Ughhhhhhhhhhhh, waiting for the period to show so a cycle can begin is THE WORST. I am so sorry LFL. I hope she arrives tonight so you can go to the work meeting without the drama of an RE visit. xo

    Dammit, stupid AF. Why does everything have to be such a pain in the ass? Hope she arrives in the a.m. so you can enjoy a short drive. Also hoping for another awesome cycle with an awesome ending.

  3. OMG how frustrating!!! Ughhh. You poor thing. I hope she hurries up and gets here ASAP!

  4. so annoying! I hope it shows up and you don’t have to deal with the drive!!! Good luck.

  5. heya — I was also told that having or not having AF after taking the BC during an IVF cycle should not affect it. This is my first cycle doing IVF — so I’m new to all of it.

    Also, I was told that the reason to take the birth control was for suppression and to get you in the right point of a cycle. Whether or not the AF shows has no meaning… it’s a precaution to take the BC to help prevent OHSS.

    I hope it shows for you at least to give you peace of mind… 🙂

  6. I’m sorry that the witch is being particularly difficult. Not that I would really wish AF on anyone, but I really do hope she shows up before the morning!

  7. Dangit! I hate waiting for that stupid period to show. It’s Murphys Law to the Nth. Whenever you want it to show it doesn’t and when you don’t it does. Sheesh! I hope it comes this morning and you can just enjoy that short commute!!

  8. i am willing AF to show up. did it work? of course nothing ever goes right, when you could have the nice 2 min commute your body has a different idea. i swear, it happens every time.

  9. seriously the worst. I hope AF shows up for you {that sounds weird to say lol}. Thanks for joining Team Hope 🙂

  10. Come on, AF, where are you?! I hope that she arrives soon and you can get this cycle going.
