I think AF is coming tomorrow... — The Bump

I think AF is coming tomorrow...

...she's been teasing me all day.  I've been spotting, have cramps, etc.  It's only CD16 but I gave myself an ovidrel shot two weeks ago as of this Wednesday so I expected AF to come this week (albeit later than Monday...) 

I'm anxious because this means the start of cycle #31, the first cycle at a new RE's office, the first cycle I'll be using menopur so I don't know what to expect in terms of side effects, etc., and the first cycle I'll be on such a high dose of meds (300 units).  Lots to be nervous about.

Crossing everything I've got that this is it...

    Thanks!  This was sort of a canceled cycle anyway.  I had cysts after my last medicated Gonal F cycle which seems to be the pattern my body is getting into.  (One medicated cycle on, one cycle canceled due to cysts.)  My old RE had me do a trigger shot to force the cysts to go away and although they said to make sure DH and I had sex "just in case" one of those cysts actually still had a follicle in it we had no hope in anything actually coming out of this month.  So...onwards and upwards we go!

  • Well thats exciting you have a new plan that you are getting to put into action. I have one more cycle then I'm doing menopur and clomid so be sure to keep me updated on the s/e so I will know what to expect next cycle. I have taken clomid so I know what to expect from that but am I little afraid of the injects but excited at the same time.

    I hope everything works out for you this cycle! Good luck!
