Trick or treat?
30
Thu, 10-30-2008 - 10:22am

The answer big trick.  I went in yesterday for my CD10 follicle study to find that my follies are no longer follies.  They hemorrhaged and are now considered cysts.  There is less than 1% chance there is still a viable egg.  So my trigger and IUI have been canceled for the cycle and next cycle I will have to be on BCP again to relove these buggers.  My acupuncturist worked on resolving them for me and maybe I will be cyst free at the end of this cycle, but I am taking the blessing in disquise forced break and going to work on my diet (I cheat a little and really need to be 100%), my health, and my sanity. 


I was really bummed about it yesterday and even had a hard time coming to the board.  I am doing much better today now that I have come to terms with it.  I will be sending all of my baby dust your way and hope that one of you if not more see your bfp this cycle.

DH and I are 33yo.  Been together since March 1994, Married in September 1999.  TTC since February 2002.  DX:  Graves Disease->hypothyroidism and functional ovarian cysts or unexplained ovarian dystfunction.  DH DX:  can seed an army. Currently:  Femara for cd 3-7, follicle study 10/29, HCG trigger likely 10/29,  IUI likely 10/31- yup Halloween- will it be a trick or a treat?  It was a big trick.  My follies hemorrhaged and are now considered cysts.  The cycle trigger and IUI are cancelled and I will be on forced break again (BCP) next cycle.

hi terri,

(((((hugs))))) i'm so sorry about that nasty trick. it's such an awful feeling when it seems that your body betrays you. i'm glad you have a plan to resolve those cysts to have even better conditions for the next treatment cycle. i'm here to "talk" whenever you need!

thanks, terri! i KWYM. i'm always so happy for any pg's for the ladies here, and for anyone dealing w/ IF. it's a blow when i hear of others getting pg w/ no problems, especially if they don't want it so much and/or take it for granted. the past few days i keep looking at jennagreen's last post. she's gone through so much and has a similar story to mine, and has a healthy twin pg. i hope your BFP comes in what, a cycle and half? i'm sending you cyst-reduction vibes!!!! (that makes me picture the ultrasounds some physical therapists use to break up muscle adhesions and stuff, wouldn't that be great?)

Hi Terri:


Thank you for your support of our military! It is so appreciated!


DH will be home around the second week in December! I am not sure if he will make Dec's cycle or even Jan's. He has to travel back to CO to clear our last post, so it just depends on when everything hits. Luckily, he won't be gone too long (maybe a week or so). Then I get a couple months in before he goes to school in TX this summer (for 8 weeks) but that isn't too awful. After the TX school, he should be home indefinately!


I'll keep you and Ana in my thoughts!


Best wishes,


Gabrielle

We may not all agree with the reason our soliders are sent over to Iraq, but I know we all support our troops.

I am sure you are aware that a few mini support groups have been made.
