Futurebabyg - ugh, so sorry about the cysts! If you don't mind me asking,by your size do you mean less than normal weight or more than normal weight? I have PCOS and am overweight, wonder if that means I need injectables too.

Sugargully can I ask why you didn't stay with the RE? If you have been TTC that long you would be better off with an RE who has more experience. Is your doctor doing any monitoring? I'd be concerned for you having thin lining or other issues and the doctor not catching it.

Sunny27 the TWw is hard enough without worrying about something, so I feel for you.

Waiting - did you have a poor response to femara and decide to try clomid again?

AFM its CD11 and I'm waiting for an ultrasound tomorrow. I had a terrible experience getting the trigger shot via mail order pharmacy and next month will probably do more expensive local to save the stress and aggravation. I'm worried that femara won't do anything and am trying not to get my hopes up, but I really want aNovember baby!

Minuet- yes I was on clomid 3 months with side effects horrible. RE said let's do femera. We did it for 3 Months. No side effects! But with first iui last month only had one mature follicule. He said normally with femera you aren't going to get more than one (some girls on here have though!) Back to clomid. All though today's pain makes me remember why I went off of it. Oh well sucking it up for 2 cycles and then we are done.

Minuet I use to be on the low end of the weight spectrum for years but before trying to conceive I worked as hard as possible to gain 30 lbs. I finally did it and I am at a healthier weight. The doctor says i am small or petite stature. I hate the word petite. Anyways she wants me on injectables because of my size. She says for bigger women she likes oral fertility medications but will try injectables if no luck with orals.

Yes, it's mostly due to finances. Going to the RE is equivalent to making a double mortgage payment each month.This isn't the end of our journey but sometimes we have to try less expensive options. My hubby and I plan like it depends on us and pray because it's up to HIM.

I'm not looking forward to the side effects of the Clomid. I'm very vulnerable to hormone therapies. Just hope I can keep my sanity and happiness!

CD12 ultrasound shows no response. Largest follicle was a 10 on the left, and lining was only 5. It's nice that femara has been giving me ovary pain for days now, making me hopeful like Clomid did, only to crush me with reality.
Going back CD16 to see if any growth, but I know there won't be. This is exactly what happened with Clomid.
I'm crushed to have a third cycle in a row without even a CHANCE of ovulation, not even a 15% shot at pregnancy. Just a big fat zero chance like my natural anovulatory cycles - only this time we're paying at least $500/month for the chance at nothing.

I'm so sorry minuet- at least it gives you more information. Has the doctor said anything about injections with clomid? They have a high risk of multiples but my re said do clomid and injections. Plus trigger and iui. Makes for a very successful iui!

Hey ladies, how is everyone doing? AFM, went Monday for my progesterone test at 10dpo my results were the highest they have every been 29.62 ng/ml. I am currently 12dpo and will probably test Saturday or Sunday if AF does not rear her ugly head.

Sunny keep us updated! It is so hard to wait! I have cd13 scan tomorrow to see how many follicles and when to trigger for iui! Hoping since I switched to clomid I will have more than 1
