So long story short my IUI has been canceled. I am beyond upset but I have to trust the doctors know what they are doing. Basically I am/was having a flare from my dermatomyositis (I lost all strength in my right arm/hand and was having some joint pain) so the rheumatologist wanted to hold off on the fertility treatments until we got this under control. I had a consult with the RE on Friday and she agreed. I am having some additional tests done with the rheumatologist and neurologist so the RE wants to regroup after the results of those come in... so maybe next cycle but probably the cycle after. I still took the clomid from CD 3-6 (CD7 was the day we called off the IUI) so right now DH and I are trying to decide if we still try to time intercourse and just leave it up to fate. Right now I am leaning that way. I am still going to be lurking here and hoping for successful IUI's for everybody this cycle. FX for you!!
***Question*** I received the trigger shot Ovidrel in the mail on Friday and the RE said that as long as it stayed refrigerated it was good until the expiration date. Anyone know how long that is? I couldn't find an expiration date on anything.

@ErikaMG Good luck on this cycle. My fingers are crossed for you.
@kh87 Hope everything works out for you this cycle. I'm rooting for you I took Femara as well for my first and second and do recall having a couple of dizzy spells but that was it. Nothing major just a temporary feeling of dizziness. Good luck this month
