I feel like I want to CRY! Please help...
This morning I went in for an ultrasound to make sure I have no cyst, and to draw blood to confirm my numbers are where they need to be. Ultrasound came out fine, and this afternoon I received a call saying that it was okay to start the meds on Thursday morning. I will be on the antagonist protocol (150 units Menopur (am), 75 units Menopur (pm), 225 units Follistim (pm), Ganirelix, Ovidrel, Baby Asprin and of course Progesterone), and have been on Metformin for the past two months.
I decided to ask the nurse what my FSH was and she said, with hesitation the number was 16.4!!! OMG!!!!!! I went into shock. The last time we checked my FSH, a year ago, my number was 12.4! After I hung up with the nurse, I had a panic attack, and could barely breath. I am too scared to go through this again with that number. I started to call the pharmacy to pay for my meds, but could not allow myself to dial that number feeling the way I feel. I called the doctor back and he was so kind to talk to me. He said that it was completely up to me, and I was the boss and I did not have to go through it if I did not want to. But if we wanted to have a baby we should not wait. The number will not change. Even if it goes down he still has to go with the high FSH. He feels confident. I really like this doctor. He has never tried to sell me and has been patient and kind with myself and my DH.
Ladies, I need you! I have been away from this board for the past two years. I am so terrified. I need that push...I need the support. Would you do it? Am I being silly?
