Sitting another cycle out
13
Wed, 09-15-2010 - 10:33pm

After talking with my acupuncturist tonight, we decided that I'm going to sit out another cycle. Crap. This cycle I was out due to the cyst, but we both agreed that I need another month back on the herbs and going back to 2x's a week before jumping back into the IUI's. I only have two more chances left using Clomid and we aren't going to make the move to injectables or IVF, so I want to make it count. I took two cycles off the herbs due to the RE and I regret that decision because I was really making progress. I can tell the changes back to how I was prior to the herbs and it's just frustrating.

So as much as I hate to sit out again, I think it's best... Ugh - TTC sucks so bad sometimes.... Will still be here lurking and supporting all my girls - would love to see some action in the BFP section - been kind of quiet lately....

Hugs and babydust to all!!!!

Sorry, I know sitting out a cycle for any reason Is hard and frustrating. I wish I could wave a magic wand for you and the other ladies and get us all BFP's.(((((hugs))))))

Of course Im not sorry I asked. :)
I like to hear everyone's perspective. It sounds similar to my thoughts. I just dont know if I can stick to my guns about it.

If I could find a clinical trial for IVF Id do it in a heartbeat, I think. Too bad Im not technically considered infertile anyway. Except of course by my ins. co that doesnt want to pay my bills.

I just think if I delve further into assisted fertility I will drive myself more crazy & be so disappointed when it doesnt work, esp. doling out cashola. If I had better insurance it would be a different story.

She would like to see me have another month on the herbs to really prep myself since I was off for two cycles. I've always said I wouldn't do injectables - nothing against them because I know they work but for me personally and for DH, its just something that would make this ride more crazy. With IVF, I am a practical person and to spend 17K for something that is not guaranteed for me (41 yrs old, AMA, etc.) is just something I can't do. We've always said we will try for a year and if we can't get pg, then it wasn't in the cards for us... doesn't mean my desire for kids has wained, but if its meant to be, it will happen somehow.... sorry you asked? ;)

Ann - I'm sorry to hear that. TTC is frustrating in and of itself, and so much more when you have to be sidelined to sit a cycle or more out. At the same time, it sounds like it is the best choice for you to make right now. I hope that the time off goes by quickly for you and ultimately pays off.

Hugs, girlie.

Hugs Ann. I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision, but I would have done the same thing. I hadn't realized you stopped taking the herbs these past cycles, but I think its great you're going to start them again. Especially since you made so much progress with them. I hope after this cycle with the bc that those herbs can work their magic!

Have a great time this weekend girl!

Sorry Ann, how frustrating.
It sounds like its best to wait to give yourself the best possible chance though.

Im freaking that Ive been off my herbs for almost a week now. I think I was allergic to mine though when I left a message they said they dont think that was problem. Dont know what they mean as I dont see the women until Sat.

Im still too hot & too damp. Ive cut out almost all dairy and cut way back on sugar. Why did your acupuncturist say to wait?

If you dont mind me asking, why did you decide against injectables or IUI? Just curious as Im trying to figure out my next steps in advance.
