CD 3 u/s today: doctor said everything looked ok said he thought may have small cyst on right leftover but was not concerned about it enough to cancel this month. As for my updated plan this cycle we discussed clomid vs femara and he felt that we should try to do one more month on clomid since I wasn't having too many side effects from it but to up dose to 100 mg days 3-7 and scan me at cd 10 since my follicle last month on cd 12 was 33 mm. I work on cd 10 so he felt cd 9 would be better than cd 11 so I scheduled for cd 9 and will start opk on cd 7. Then we talked about this timeline of my cycle and I asked about growing follicles too early in cycle. He agreed this could be an issue and said sometimes it can be indicative of low egg reserve. Although they felt I had a lot of follicles prior to starting treatment based on u/s and hormone levels looked ok they had not done ORA score. I guess it is like an egg retrieval score and can show if your egg reserve is low due to age which can cause body to grow follicles too quickly in the cycle. So I had that b/w drawn today since I was on cd 3. They send it out so won't have results for about 15 days but if this cycle is unsuccessful and depending on score it will help to know if we should be more aggressive and consider ivf sooner. Ughhh, I can't believe I am at this point already.

Here we go again.......
