Finally on to another cycle

My last cycle was a resounding failure, followed by a no show from af.  So after taking meds and a 50 day cycle, we are finally on to a new cycle.  Although, it started out fairly rough already.  I have very light and short periods (2 days of light flow), this period was even lighter and I wasn't sure it was starting when it did, so I didn't call my RE on day 1 and after the weekend it was day 4 already.  So I called and they wanted me to come in for a baseline appointment right away, well I couldn't make it in that day, but convinced them to let me do it the next day.  I was supposed to start meds already(day 3), but was told I could start day 4.  Well when I went to pick-up the meds, that were supposed to be called in, they weren't there.  I went to my car and cryed my eyes out, called a friend, calmed down and went home, thinking this cycle was going to be a bust.  I had some left-over clomid from DH, and figured it was my only way of saving this cycle, so I took it.  Went to my baseline appointment on day 5, and said that they forgot to send in my Rx, and they said I could start it that day.  

Now I know I shouldn't have taken the meds without talking to a Dr., but I was desperate to make this cycle still a possibility.  I also chickened out about telling my RE that I took it. My protocol for this cycle is Femara and monitoring, then IUI.  So I took 100mg of clomid on day 4, and am taking 5mg of Femara on days 5-9.  I googled clomid and femara together, and apparently some doctors actually prescribe the 2 together, or even back to back.  So I think it should be okay.  Feel free to blast me for doing something stupid, but you all know the desperation.  Anyway, we are hopefully on our way to IUI #3.

  • Bless your heart!

    No judgement here on the clomid thing! You did what you had to do and I would have done it too! Who knows!? That could have been the magic recipe!

    Good Luck!

  • Eh. I personally wouldn't think about it. You only took it for one day, it's not like you took the whole 5 days worth of Clomid and then started the Femara, you know? If it is really bugging you, you can always call your Dr and get some input from them. 

    Good luck this cycle.
