So after a year of NTNP, followed by 7 cycles active TTC naturally, followed by 4 more months of TTC with all the poking and prodding that comes along just to get some freakin' clomid, I Finally get the "infertility" diagnosis checked off in my chart and the green light to start treatment. I started my first cycle in April. Cycle 1 (50mg) it was "borderline" whether I ovulated. So in May Cycle 2 I went up to 100 mg & I had confirmed ovulation with the blood work on CD23, and there were 2 follies present on CD 12 when I went for that sonogram. Unfortunately we didn't catch the egg(s). I've been spotting since Sunday, but the witch is officially here today... I call the doctor to get an appointment for my sonogram to start of the new clomid cycle and they are "booked solid", can't even squeeze me in if I sit there and wait all day, and thus they told me to SKIP THIS CYCLE. ummmm... WHAT? I called, begged, pleaded, etc. There is no way to fit me in, I asked and my doctor won't just write me another prescription without doing a sonogram, and basically there is nothing I can do but wait until next month. BUT! When I started Clomid back in April, I got 3 refills for 50mg. I refilled it in May before we started that cycle, but then they upped me to 100mg so I had to get a whole new prescription filled. That 50mg is sitting in my medicine cabinet at home. I know I have another 50mg at the pharmacy waiting to be refilled, and because my insurance doesn't cover it, I'm pretty sure I can just ask for the refill and walk out with the clomid no problem without doctor verification or anything like that. That would give me 100mg. Should I go through this cycle by myself? What would you do? sorry this is soooooo long. I know to some this might sound , but I really just want to start our family.
