IF Testing & Treatment w/o 10/7

Re: IF Testing & Treatment w/o 10/7

  • @bluetickgal I had an HSG done, not the SHG (these are very confusing so similar from what I’ve read though lol). I don’t know if the SHG will show your follies, but you should be monitored on the letrozole with ultrasounds that will show your how your follies and lining are growing, thats when they will determine your IUI (I think that’s what you’re doing this cycle, right?!) and if not, that’s what will tell them when you should have TI then. Usually they want to see you on CD 12 for the first ultrasound and blood work. 
    In General though, I am just so very glad you are finally back in the WTO!’ What a road
    you have been on. Your vacation couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! ♥️♥️♥️

  • @kpearse99 yeah...from what I understand the SHG & HSG are pretty similar, but the SHG doesn’t check tubes like the HSG does. As far as I know I’m not being monitored now (this will be the first cycle with the RE). I’ll verify on Thursday...but I think I asked at the first appt and he said it wouldn’t be necessary. *TW (loss mentioned) - he indicated that the fact that we have gotten pregnant twice but have lost both indicates that getting pregnant isn’t the issue with the current med protocol, but figuring out why we are losing them. - End TW* I was kind of expecting to be monitored once we switched to the RE, but I don’t think that's the case at this time. We are doing TI, no IUI unless we go another 6 cycles with no success. Thank you for all the info...maybe I should push for being monitored? Yes, vacation came at a perfect time!! 

    @keikilove thank you!! I’ve got my fingers crossed you get great news by the end of the week!! Gotta love the supportive to a fault H!

  • @bluetickgal I had to go to the doc yesterday because I need a note to miss work the day before a holiday and I don’t have the flu. They think it was an insane virus. For example, my temp was 98.3 and I had been sweating on my way there. They retook it 10-15 minutes later and it was back up to 99.5. It was 97.66 when I woke up today and that’s a huge drop from 103! 
    @keikilove I actually don’t have to do IUI at all before going to IVF. I just have to have two (abnormal?) SA on file.

  • @keikilove I can't believe how long it takes for you to get your results!! How do you not go insane?! I've got every single thing crossed for you though <3 <3

    @bluetickgal I feel like I don't know enough about RE's and fertility medications to answer but I kind a do think you should push to be monitored.  Did your RE just tell you to use OPKs then to detect O?  Maybe you can work something out where you call when you get a peak or high OPK and go in to check follie size and confirm O is about to happen, so you can really TI?

    @b_1029 so sorry friend...sending all the hugs! 💜 Hope the break helps! We will miss you, but totally understand!

    @kpearse99 I don’t use OPK’s, I just temp. I was thinking about starting OPK’s back just to have more clarification on O since I’m supposed to start progesterone 3 days after. I’ll talk to them about it all tomorrow though to see what would be best! There was confusion on whether we would be trying this cycle anyways, so I need to get that all figured out!

    @inthewoods23 EXACTLY!!! That's how I felt last night!! All day yesterday I just feel "different" or "off". I had this weird pressure-like or heavy sensation in my lower abdomen. (not cramps or anything painful or uncomfortable...) and then I swear I started to feel a little nausea.  This morning, so far, totally normal so I'm right back to "AF is on her way" haha The mind games are the absolute worst!
