TTC after 35

Onto IUI :(

well this month of clomid, triggers and timed BD didn't work AF came today. It couldn't wait one more day, my temp went up this AM so I was hopeful but glad I wasn't going to have to deal with AF AND present my thesis tonight for my masters degree......boy was I wrong. I would like to shed a few tears but I don't have that luxury today.....at least now I can drink during Christmas.....feeling very sad.

(edited to add) and the worst part is knowing we can only do 2 maybe 3 IUI's depending on insurance, so by about march I will be done with this process.....

Re: Onto IUI :(

  • Soooo sorry - that really stinks! But at least you are getting closer to a "normal" looking cycle and with PCOS that's a HUGE step in the right direction. Fingers crossed that 2013 is a good year for all of us!!!
    Me 39 & suspected PCOS, DH 42. Went off BCP when we got married in 11/11, seriously TTC since 3/12.  Six cycles of clomid = BFNs.  Suspected endometriosis & HSG showed both tubes blocked.  Sept 2013 IVF 5D transfer of two perfect embryos = BFN.  Started acupuncture and taking time off to drop some pounds & get healthier before FET in April 2014.
  • Thanks, i didn't know I had pcos untill last month! which probably explains my BFN's, but not only do I feel my age ticking against me but money as well....very frustrating. But yes i think 2013 is going to be a LUCKY year! if for nothing else I am finished with school, well I will be in about 8 hrs.

  • Oh no, I am sorry.  I was hoping you would have good news this cycle & not have to move on to IUI.  I will be joining you with AF in a couple of days.  I am on my slippery slope down. 

    Good luck with your thesis!!!

    Me 42, DH 34 - TTC #1 since June 2012.
    9/12 3-day testing: TSH 3.76, T4 Free 1.1, LH 6.1, FSH 7.4, Prolactin 9.0, Estradiol 56. 12/12 HSG done & my tubes are clear!! 1/22/13 3-day testing: TSH 6.2, FSH 7.7, AMH 0.86, Estradiol 54, Prolactin 10.5. Thyroid almost doubled (hmmm), started Synthroid 2/4/13 and also 15,000 of Vit D 1/wk. 2/26/13 RE says I am in great shape, but DH has MFI - extremly low count along with morphology & motility issues. RE said IUI would be a waste, that IVF with ICSI is what he thinks we should do. Insurance does not cover IVF.... :(
  • ladies thank you very much for your support, yes my presentation went well, except when I read from one paper to the next in my notes and realized the papers got our of order, didn't panic took the moment to regroup and forged ahead LOL! It is completed and for that i am ever grateful!

    Yes we will be jumping right into IUI, I called the RE yesterday nurse will be calling me back today with the details. Fourteen days from yesterday will be my 40th birthday so that would be nice to have a BFP for my 40! as I will be IUI probably that week and with my Masters done, hopefully I will have released any residual stress by then, lots of yoga in the next two weeks!!
