  • @pom9207 happy IUI day!!!! 

    @misshelen86 so glad the lesson did not grow!! That is wonderful news and such a relief! 

    @shoogapoff happy birthday, my friend!! I hope you get spoiled! And YH’s count is AMAZING! Holy heck!

  • @shoogapoff hope this means you'll have a successful IUI!

    @misshelen86 thank goodness the lesion hasn't grown. Can that cause issues even if it's not growing?

    @NYTino24 FWIW, when I had done OPKs during IUI cycles they were never close to positive either. The first one I did have my IUI around the same time as my usual ovulation on CD17 but the last 2 I was triggering on CD12. With the injectables though, I don't think they will make them grow faster, but you'll have more follicles growing. Maybe I'm wrong though. I'm very curious to see how that would play out when you respond just fine the oral medication. Usually injectables are only used for IUIs when there's difficulty growing any follicles.

    @inthewoods23 Yup, I know that and I wish my RE would try to press that issue with insurance or maybe I can. Trigger tonight and IUI the next two days... I don’t think they want to risk having the 17 and 16 get much bigger. FX. 
    @nitnat007 Well that probably means we will be beta buddies, too... but I usually know what’s up before then. Good luck!
    @shoogapoff Happy birthday!!

  • @misshelen86 fx for your HSG!

    @nitnat007 glad that the extra push of medication did the trick!

    @NYTino24 Yay follicles!
    I didn’t get a positive OPK & my LH level was only at 11.9; but they still triggered me on CD12.

  • @pom9207 We still need to meet with the urologist in 2 months to see if there’s anything we can do to improve DH’s count. In the meantime, we are getting things in order so we can move forward with IVF. That is our only option unless his count significantly improves in the next few months. We have an info session/counselling appointment next week so we can learn a bit more.

  • @keikilove and @NYTino24 doesn’t the trigger shot MAKE you O anyway? Even if you weren’t going to O on your own or even if you weren’t close to O? That’s always been my understanding of it. So then the timing is the IUI would be spot on from the trigger, right?

  • @NYTino24 I get so stressed about timing meds etc, so I can relate to that anxiety. I got so mad at MH on the day of our IUI bc he could not make himself HIO that evening like we were supposed to. We did get a +1 in,  but still....I'm working so hard to time things just right. His job is comparatively easy, and that's frustrating to me.

  • @NYTino24 Sorry YH didn’t realize that this whole bar crawl scenario would upset you. I’d be furious. Sorry you had to wait so long for the IUI this morning but FX that everything ended up being timed just perfectly! Also WTH to your earlier post about your RE’s office & the whole insurance debacle. Glad they’re trying to quickly clean up that mess for you. Sorry for the headache! Really hoping this IUI is successful & all these recent annoyances can become a distant memory for you soon!

  • Diagnosis (if you've been): PCOS

    Status (WTO/TWW/TTA): WTO

    What are you doing this cycle? (Testing? Treatment?): I’ve been diagnosed via a few tests with my MD and I saw my naturopath yesterday and she’s suggested doing further testing to get to the bottom of my PCOS, I have enlarged ovaries but no cysts were seen but symptoms wise I’m spot on so we’re going to check my androgen levels and HOMo (insulin sensitivity) if my MD will agree to order the tests (I have no private insurance so to order through my naturopath or on my own would be so expensive) 

    How are things going?: I am happy to finally have a diagnosis. Sad that there is something. Even sadder that I’ll have to make some dietary changes (I struggled with a mild eating disorder and have finally found balance and with PCOS it’s recommended to do low carbohydrate high fat to help hormones) 

    Any questions?: how did you get diagnosed with PCOS/when, what were the treatment options for you all? 

    GTKY: what's your favorite side dish for Thanksgiving? Sweet potato casserole hands down!

    I’ve been lurking and I’m sorry we are all here! But happy to have everyone here at the same time TB ladies have been a huge help for me so far in my TTC journey

    @tryingktogku sorry that you find yourself here. I don’t have PCOS so I cannot offer my experience. I hope additional tests help you find the answer and your doctor comes up with a plan for you soon!
