I took a testing break over the weekend. I tested this morning on a FRER and thought I could see a shadow, but nothing that has me convinced. I'm 99.9% sure we're out this cycle.

ditmar- What CD are you? Are you going through a fertility specialist? My doctor's office is just prescribing the medication and doing a progesterone check after suspected O. When I had my monitored cycle at the fertility specialist, they said they would only do the trigger if my hormone levels weren't right when my follicles were ready. My insurance wouldn't cover it so I was happy when they said I didn't need it.

Sorry for the delayed response, I just saw this. Yes, I got pregnant naturally with my mc. This cycle with Femara is the first time I've had any medical assistance. My doctor wasn't willing to trigger because we never did blood work last cycle to see if I ovulate on my own, plus she was confident that I would release these 2 follicles based on the scan. I am now 1dpo. She agreed to trigger next time if this doesn't work.

I know what you mean, that it is difficult to find people to talk to about this...I belong to a few FB groups that are helpful and easy to use for responses. This feels a little more personal though.

Jules, sorry you feel you are out this cycle. But sounds like you still have a chance!

AF is here so on to cycle #2. The good thing is that it lines up with what fertility friend predicted, which means I ovulated on CD20 and af at 14dpo. I'm actually ok with seeing af and feel a little more relaxed since I know what to expect now. The only thing I'm waiting on is to see if they want to up my femara dose.

Sarah- Fingers crossed everything works and good luck! Are you an early tester or are you holding out?

Jules, sorry about AF. What dosage of Femara were you on? Do you plan to request any monitoring this cycle, or continue with what you did last cycle? I'm glad you are feeling somewhat relaxed now.

And thank you! As far as testing, I have done early and waiting until AF is due or late. I've tried everything to see if one way is easier on me than others. Turns out, it's all stressful! Lol. This time, I was planning on doing whatever my doctor recommends. She was telling me about a success story of one of her patients and I think she recommended beginning testing on 10dpo, but I'm not sure if I heard her right. I'm also not sure when to expect AF because I don't know if Femara is going to lengthen my regular 12 day luteal phase... My app is showing AF is due on 11/27. If it doesn't come that day, I think it would be fun to get a positive on 11/28 which is my deceased sister's birthday. Sorry for such a long answer--I guess I'm not too sure! But I'm thinking I will wait until 11/28.

Hi Ladies!

Mind if I join this conversation? Iím on my first round ever of Femara with Ovidrel trigger shot and have been finding it difficult to find other women who donít have PCOS/are on fertility meds to talk to and relate.

Sarah- I always say I'm going to wait, but part of me is just too impatient. I have gotten better at not staring at it for hours and throwing it away before getting line eye too bad though. lol I'm not sure what my luteal phase is usually so I can't help you there. I only know that this cycle it was spot on 14 days. Make sure to keep us updated!

Hi fx! Good luck with your first cycle. What CD are you?

Hi Jules! Thanks! Iím on CD 15. I triggered on Monday 11/13, so I was supposed to ovulate last night. Havenít really felt any different today, just bloated a bit (think from the trigger shot perhaps?). Is that normal? So I guess my two week wait starts today, supposed to test on the 29th. Fingers crossed but Iím not getting my hopes up since this is just my first cycle.

Ladies..... Mind if i join? I have PCOS as well and did rounds of clomids before plus fostimon + trigger. Unfortunately, we never conceived. 2 mos after stopping clomid, we tried Fertilaid and that's when we conceive. We decided to TTC#2 in July, naturally/unmedicate, so far no luck. So we decided to try fertilaid again and see if it will help my body to ovulate. Still waiting to ovulate hopefully between CD18-23.

mdscpa- Hiii! Good luck with the fertilaid. I've heard some good things about it! Fingers crossed it does the trick like it did the first time for you.

FX- I didn't do a trigger so I'm not sure. I knew when I ovulated because I was doing OPK's and had lots of side pain that got super intense then it just went away. I do remember having af like symptoms like a little bit of bloating and broke out. Hormones doing their thing I suppose. lol

AFM: Today is CD3 so I took my first femara. I'm also ordering my OPK's....kicking myself for not getting a bigger pack last month. I limited myself because last time I got so many then got pregnant that month so I had like 150 of them left over. I should have kept them, but didn't think we would be TTC anytime soon after that. 2-3 years seemed so far away then. No one told me how fast time flies!

Welcome, mdscpa! Iíve never heard of fertilaid.. is that kind of like a vitamin or supplement? Or is it a prescription? Do you know if you can take it in addition to fertility meds like Femara/Clomid? Sorry for so many questions!
