I found out some pretty cool news about my insurance coverage. So I called my FS this morning to find out my progesterone results and they were 14.3 on CD23 so that was good and made me happy because last time I had my progesterone checked on CD 23 it was 9! So definitely improvement! Well, I told the nurse that I didn't want to do another round of clomid since I only grew 1 mature follicle and that I wanted to move onto injectibles, well she told me that most insurance companies require that you do 3 IUI's before moving onto injectibles and so I called my insurance company and she told me that's true with my plan, so I have to do 2 more clomid + IUI cycles before I can try injectibles. I said to her, but I only have 4 IUI's so that doesn't really make sense, am I going to have to pay for 2 out of pocket before they let me move on to IVF, since they require that you do 3 and 3 before getting the authorization to do IVF and she said oh honey your IUI's are unlimited. So I can have as many IUI's as I want before moving on to IVF. I thought that was GREAT news. I feel relieved although I'm still annoyed that I may not be pregnant!
Lisa - it's so true. I told my FS that I'm on a site for support for people dealing with infertility and he said oh man! And I said what do you mean and he goes, great now you're going to feel like certain things are more common than they are. He goes, there's lots of women who have trouble conceiving but have success on their first IUI but aren't part of a site so you don't get to hear their stories! And he said the same thing about clomid side effects because I was kind of freaking out when he told me he was going to prescribe me clomid, he goes, Ashli, people who don't have side effects aren't online posting about it so you're getting a false representation of how many people actually suffer the side effects.
EXACTLY how I feel!
