I had an appointment with my GYN today. Dr. T. up until today I felt like I had no idea what was really actually going on or what I was to do in the next cycles. I hate to waste the next four cycles of Clomid so I needed to discuss our option. I felt as though I was my own Dr during the visit. She did decide to start me on Glucophage (sp). 1 a day for 2 weeks, then 2 a day for 2 weeks, then 3 a day from there on out. I had so many questions so I will just number them and give you the answers I was given.
First, I told her all of the things we are doing now.
-DTD EOD until EWCM then ED until negative OPK
-4 mg folic acid (for the MTHFR mutation)
-baby aspirin (same as above)
-using Instead cup
-Clomid 50 mg days 3-7
Now for the questions.
1. What is better for me, Clomid or Femara?
-since I am overweight the Clomid along with glucophage(sp)
2. Should I try an IUI?
-she said she thinks that would be helpful for me (see last question)
3. Should I be having a progesterone draw at 7 DPO or CD 21?
-it should be done at 7 DPO instead of CD 21 like it has been
4. Do I need CD3 FSH levels done?
-no, that checks to see if your eggs are too old and I am just 24.
5. Should I have an HSG done?
-yes, that would be beneficial, let's do it next cycle between CD 7 and 10. call to schedule on CD 1
6. When should we see an RE?
-first she said to wait 4 months, then when I ponited out that I would be through with my 6 cycles of Clomid she said now. She said the RE is who I should talk to about having an IUI.
I was going to ask about an SIS, but I have no idea what it is, lol. I will also be waiting to talk to the RE to ask about a trigger shot and whatnot. I got an appointment with an RE for March 3. I feel like that is forever away, I guess because it is. It kind of sucks that I will be in the middle of a cycle. She also told me that I need to get some of this weight off. I am thinking of starting a weightloss blog as well, but I don't know. I need something to make me accountable. Poor T, I always try to get him to do it but I think he feels bad telling me no when I want an ice cream or something. Wii Fit, here I come!
In other, cycle related, news I am on CD 27 and 9 DPO. I am not having any of the cramps I have been the past few cycles before AF and I have lots of creamy CM. It's looking good I guess, lol.
