Norah - I had ovarian drilling (OD) done last June and don't regret it at all! We have an amazing thread in the LTTTC success stories section that is very long, but there are great women there! We've all seen positive effects from the OD and it's not that bad of a surgery. I would say go for it!
Forgot to ask you ladies earlier, when you have taken gonal F and it is a failed cycle, does your cycle revert back to its previous state or does AF come to visit around 14 days after the last dose? I normally have 46 day cycles and am planning on waiting it out until AF comes to visit.
I have to pick up my prescription for the next cycle next Wednesday, it takes a while for the pharmacy to get the meds in as well.
Clomid and trigger shot
I have a few questions about Clomid and the trigger shot. I'm on my second cycle of Clomid 100 mg cd 3-7. I went in for a scan on cd10 and had 2 mature follies so we decided to trigger since I wasn't having an LH surge and she was afraid that the eggs would over mature before I got my surge. I did the trigger that evening and continued to temp and it's indicated that I O'd cd11 but on cd12 I had really bad ovulation pain, almost exactly 36 hours after the shot, which is when they say the shot will cause O to happen. Im just confused about my chart. Could I have O'd twice or did the shot itself make my temps go up? so so confusing!! Thanks in advance!
A little background:
Two months post surgery for Endo, PCOS and severe scar tissue connecting uterus and bladder
With triggers I was told 24-36 hours is when ovulation occur. We can't really say if your follicles ovulated at different times, only if you would of have an u/s between the temp rise, and ovulation pain. Everyone is different. I would just to make sure you don't miss it!!!!
AFM: my e2 continues to rise we are at 102 today. Still no measurable follies. I have been looking at Cridge e2 numbers and mines to reassure myself. Mines is higher then hers, which has me on edge because she had tons of follies, and I don't want them to cancel me this cycle, I can deal with mutiples. Lol. Anywho I will post cridge numbers and mines.
Cd 4- e2 30
Cd 9- e2 60 no follies over 5mm
Cd 12- e2 190
Cd 16- e2 1700 (21mm, 19mm, 4or 5 15-16mm, a couple smaller 12-13mm follicles)
Cd 4- 53
Cd 7- 102 no mature follies
Cd 10- monday
Can I join you all? I'm getting ready to start my third cycle of injectables. I'm on Follistim, not Gonal-F, but they're the same thing.
Here's a rundown of my history...been TTC with PCOS since August 2010. I've done 5 cycles of Clomid up to 150 mg- got pregnant and had an early m/c on my first round of 150 mg, but no luck after that. My OB/GYN then referred me to my RE, who did 2 rounds of Femara with me with no response. I then moved onto injectables in October. The first month I was on Bravelle and Menopur, but didn't respond well so my cycle was cancelled. In December I did a cycle with Follistim and Menopur and responded wonderfully. At trigger I had 2 ripe follies. We did IUI that cycle and it was unfortunately a BFN.
Right before I triggered that cycle, my RE thought he saw a polyp on my u/s and said that if I didn't get pregnant he wanted to do a sonohysterogram to check it out better, so after a couple months off I actually ended up starting my period naturally at the end of February and had the sono at the beginning of March. Sure enough, it was a polyp, so I was scheduled for a hysteroscopy with polypectomy and D&C on March 20. The surgery went super well, I just had my follow up on April 3 and my RE informed me that the polyp was "huge" and he has no doubt that it could have contributed to preventing implantation.
So now here I am. I finished Provera yesterday and now I'm just waiting for AF. We're doing the same protocol as last time, starting at 150 iu of Follistim. I just want to get this cycle going!
