So..bad news today.
I had my 14 day ultrasound and was met with the news that the clomid did not work. I had no follicles that were over the size of 8mm (they like them to be over 10mm). So basically, I won’t ovulate this month. Which means that I spent about $150.00 this month to assist my body in doing what it already does on its own — not work.
The nurse mentioned injectables, but I think I will ask to be put back on letrizol (femara) because I at least know that medecine gave me two follicles back in june.
As to why the Clomid didn’t work, the nurse thought maybe it was because I had been off of the Metformin for about 3 weeks when I ran out, or just that Clomid won’t work for me. I felt stupid, so I didn’t tell her this, but I think it may be because I started taking it too early. I didn’t really hear Dr. M when he told me that the first day of my cycle is not the first day of spotting. I always spot for about 3 days and then go into a full cycle. So I called in and told them my first day was on about day 2 of the spotting — so maybe, just maybe I may have screwed the whole thing up by my own actions this time. That being said, that is why I do not want to take injectables yet. A kind commenter told me not to be scared of injectables, but I can’t help it. I just really pray that I don’t have to get that far.
So, thats that. I will keep you posted as to what decisions are made after I start my next cycle. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and gets some good rest and maybe some BFP’s (big fat positive pregnancy tests)!
