TTCA35 Weekly check-in 8/28/17


Re: TTCA35 Weekly check-in 8/28/17

  • @Labluver2 sorry I can't help with that question because I only did Femara for my IUIs. I don't remember any noticeable changes in my period though, except I really felt ovulation cramps a lot more.

    @ELeighMay welcome to the board! I'm so sorry for your loss, I can't imagine what that feels like but I know how I feel when my RE has called after each IVF to say our fertilized eggs didn't make it to the 5-day mark. This journey is emotionally exhausting and it's different for each of us. As for your question on MFI, my DH had low motility just a bit but good enough counts so he's been put on CoQ10 and vitamin D plus a multivitamin and encouraged to watch his caffeine and alcohol intake. But for us I think it's my age and egg health that's our biggest hurdle.

  • @Labluver2 Sorry, just catching up.  I haven't done IUI, but AF after my first IVF this year felt worse than the egg retrieval did for me (granted, I had the benefit of twilight anesthesia then norco the day of ER).  But it was bad (normally I'll take midol/pamprin for day 1 and maybe day 2 to keep from whining, but it couldn't touch this pain).  I use a menstrual cup and had to change it more frequently than usual.  I didn't remember that from my 2012 egg freezing cycle, and AF wasn't that bad after my last two IVF cycles (luteal lupron - first one was antagonist), so I don't know why.
