Cycling again...where do I post now?

Warning: DS mentioned below.

Hey girls! Here is a quick recap of my history:

Perhaps you remember me as the girl who had the worst possible case of OHSS pretty much ever. :( 

I was on IF (before this board) for a long time. I keep up with lots of girls on here and on the private FB boards. 

I have PCOS. I never ovulate. I take Provera monthly to bleed.  

Summer 2009- Clomid a few times- never produced a follicle.

Nov 2009- Tried to do an injectable IUI- but produced over 20 follicles, so it was cancelled. 

Jan 2010- Fresh IVF cycle. Severe OHSS. Three blood clots. Drained several times for the OHSS. In the hospital for almost 2 weeks. Out of work for over a month. Was on Coumadin for 6 months. Seriously almost died. Had to wait to do FET until all three clots were gone. Had frosties. 

Aug/Sep 2010- BFN

Sep/Oct 2010- chemical pregnancy

Nov 2010- BFP which led to my son.

No more frosties left.  

DS will be 11 months old this week. We are doing a fresh IVF cycle starting the end of July, starting meds around his 1st bday. 

DH has always been fine, but the recent semen analysis showed that his morph is terrible. Urologist and RE both said we would have to do IVF because of DH's problems anyway. He also has more varicoceles (which he had years back before we tried for kids). No surgery this time on the varicocles though since we are going to do IVF anyway.

I LOVE my RE. LOVE. I know I am in good hands with him, but because of everything that happened with me in the past when I did the fresh IVF cycle, I am pretty terrified. Not going to lie.  

We have another RE appointment tomorrow. We met with him a few times for discussions. I also met with my hematologist again recently. Tomorrow, we will get everything squared away and all my meds set up, etc. 

So where do I post? I am on the SAIF FB boards, but there isn't too much action on cycling on there. Can I post here? I understand if I can't. I really don't want to offend anyone. But I would love to be able to post here. It really feels like home to me. Please tell me what you girls think.

  • Welcome!  Nice to read someone else's storyabout severe OHSS (although I am truly you had to go through that).  It makes me feel like less of a freak.  I didn't have any blood clots but my kidneys did start to fail and I had almost 20 lbs of fluid drained the first night in the hospital.  I had to wear a drain from my side for 2 weeks and still have a nice scar.  Good times.

    Best of luck with your next cycle! 

    After more than 2 years of fertility treatments, FET did the trick!
    IVF March 2012 - BFP! - Severe OHSS = 8 days in the hospital in kidney failure

    Holy Moly. We could write a book together. LOL. OHSS was worse than pretty much anything ever.
