    @beachbunnyxo123 Taking cytotec to dilate for the purpose of a test sounds really weird to me. TW I have used cytotec to mc and it's not a very pleasant drug, I only took one dose vaginally and I had a lot of stomach upset and it did it's "job" very quickly. end TW Just sounds very extreme to me to use cytotec for the purpose of dilation.

  • @beachbunnyxo123 Do you have a patient navigator you could speak with do explain that you want to switch doctors? You should be free to switch if you want.
    @JuneRoseRuby hugs, I am sorry for everything you are going through. I love that you are skipping the holidays and having a vacation though! You deserve it
    @KariAnn323 FX your happy next Wednesday goes well and you can start treatment soon!
    @dpjennifer  'letting go' is also NOT in my vocabulary, for better or worse. I am so sorry the biopsy was so painful. Hugs

  • kiwi2628  and tamalahoops Thank you.

    laurad75  Wow! Amazing!

  • @50Wife after I [email protected] post I agree too for some reason I thought you were unexplained not male factor. Sounds like if your OOP it would be helpful to put the money towards IVF. Glad you’re starting to feel some more clarity towards a decision! 
  • @laurad75 Yay!!!

    @50wife I agree with putting the money towards IVF. You will have a much much better chance- a better bang for your buck, so to speak.
  • @adirat oh wtf?!  

    @darkstar42 I'm sorry.  I know my first BFN after an IUI was the hardest.  I think I had put so much hope into the fact that it would be our solution so when it didn't work, I was crushed.  My first two I only did the trigger shot. My last two he wanted to bump up my side of thing so he had me on clomid. But those were the only changes made.

  • @beachbunnyxo123 Your response is 100% reasonable and I'm glad that you wrote to them. I know it can be so hard to advocate for yourself, especially when you don't want to bother or upset anyone. However, you are not asking anything that's unreasonable and you have every right to speak up in this situation.
    @adirat ughhhhh. I hope that the bump is just nothing/not serious and this doesn't cause you further delays. Why do bodies do this to us?!

  • @darkstar42 ugh, I am so sorry. My BFN with my first IUI was so painful. I had my hopes up SO HIGH and the crash was horrific. Hugs.

    @darkstar42 I had 6 medicated cycles and 3 of those were IUI. I did 2 IUI's with 100 mg Clomid and one IUI with femara (2 pills, I can't remember what mg dose that is). My doctor didn't change my protocol besides that since I am unexplained, young, and based on BW and u/s, I was ovulating 2-3 eggs each cycle, so upping meds would only put me at risk for HOM. They did offer me injectables after cycle 4, but I declined...if I am going to injectables, I want the increased benefit of IVF.

    @adirat I am hating 2017 for you. I am so sorry for everything you have/are going through. 

  • @Redpuma119 Higher Order Multiples- aka triplets, quads, quints etc...
  • @darkstar42 so sorry for the bfn. They never get any easier. we did 2 ti cycles and 3 iuis and increased the letrozole each time until I was at max dose. 

    @adirat 2017 has been a real beast. My everything is crossed for negative results.

  • I have heard you may want to avoid rrl after confirming o, and hold off on that in first tri, especially forbthose with a history of loss.  But great for uterine muscle tone and lining growth! @purpleg8r 

    @darkstar42 came to check for your update..... so sorry it wasn't your cycle. (((Hugs)))
