Re: AW: First RE appointment today **UPDATE IN OP**

  • Bring a note pad, if you aren't already, to make nots & jot down questions. Ask all the questions you have, even If you think they're silly so you can make the most informed decision about your treatment. Good luck!!! And keep us updated.

    Me: 28  MH:35

    Married September 2012. TTC since September 2013

    June 2014 - Dx w/ significant PCOS and referred to RE.

    July/August 2014 - Testing complete: Testosterone & AMH very high, FSH slightly high, Vitamin D low, tubes and lining all lovely. DH SA: A+

    Cycle 1 (Nov 2014): 2.5 mg Letrozole/Ovidrel/TI = BFN

    Cycle 2 (Dec 2014): 5 mg Letrozole/Ovidrel/TI - BFN

    Cycle 3 (Jan 2015): 5mg Letrozole/Ovidrel/TI - BFN

    WTF consult scheduled for 1/29

  • I agree with PP, bring a notepad. We walked out of the appointment completely overwhelmed and our heads spinning. After we had time to digest and talk it through, we felt better.  The biggest thing that helped us was that we went in with a united front on wanting to use the least medically invasive procedures possible and gradually progress if needed. We felt like our RE wanted to rush right into IVF, but we are standing our ground. GL

  • Glad you have a plan!!

    I wonder why your RE said you would need to use more Femara if you don't have maturing follies by CD10. Did he mean a higher dose for the following cycle? It's normal not to have follies over 10mm until a later cycle day.
