No O again this month. :(
Thu, 02-04-2010 - 5:06pm

So second month of clomid (this time 100mg) along with ovidrel as a trigger and no ovulation (progesterone was still 3.31, same as last month). 

On to Femara 7.5 mg as soon as my period comes (hopefully it'll come without having to use Provera). 

If we have good response on Femara this month and I actually ovulate, we'll repeat the Femara along with an IUI the following month. 


I'm still pretty frustrated though... my husband has also been suffering recently from "performance anxiety" the past few times.  Including the day we triggered, so maybe it was a blessing that I didn't ovulate, huh?  That's why we're thinking the IUI may be our only shot. 


Me (36) DH (38)- me-unexplained IF/hypothyroid -DH-counts good, but volume is low; Married in 2006, off birth control pill. Started officially trying in March of 2009.
2 rounds clomid/ovidrel 2009, 1 round femara/iui, 2010, 2 rounds follistim/iui 2010. Weight loss surgery 2011.  Back to new RE 2012: HSG normal, AMH 0.43= DOR; IVF with microdose flare protocol in February 2013.

Hang in there and I wish you the best. I didn't O on 50mg, 100mg or 150mg of clomid, but my first cycle on femara, 5mg, I O'd and got my BFP and now my daugther is almost 4 months old! I hope Femara works for you!!!!

Keep your head up!!!

Also- I've heard of not telling your DH when you're triggering or when those special days around O are and then he wont' know to be anxious. Just an idea I've heard.
