Hello Ladies.. I am pretty new to this but I need to find some friends and support out there. My names Andrea and Ill give you the background story of everything and maybe someone is having some of the same issues as I am. Im 26 and overweight. I was getting my period for a consistent 4 months at a time and had been shuffled from doctor to doctor. I finally got to my current OB GYN and he suggested that I see a GYN Endo. So I did and wound up I had polyps in my uterus. Had them removed the very begining of July and was told that this was the best time to try to concieve. Only problem at that point was that my body produces too much estrogen and not enough progesterone as well as the fact that I dont ovulate on my own.
Cycle 1 started on August 6th. The doctor them started me on 50mg of clomid on Day 4. I took it Day 4-8 On day 12 my levels were rising and the folicles were growing On day 17 they canceled my cycle because everything then came to a stand still. My insurance had put waaay too many stipulations on my treatment and would only cover a natrual cycle. So I guess I have to chalk cycle 1 up to a learning experience.
Once they cancelled my cycle I was instructed to do a 7 day series of prometrium 200mg a day to bring on another period. I am very nervous about going through the tests and ultrasounds again.
I was told that this time I will be doing clomid 100mg ovidrel and an IUI.
Has anyone been through this procress and do You have any words of wisdom or advice for me.
Wishing you all the best!!
