My IVF cycle is currently delayed because the BCPs did not supress ovulation. I took them for two weeks stopping last Sunday. They told me to call if I did not get a period by thursday. Of course, I don't ever get AF when it's supposed to come anymore. They did bloodwork on Friday which indicated that I had ovulated. So no stims for me until I get an AF. When will that be? I have no flipping idea, but I'm guessing late next week at the earliest if I have my typical LP.
I'm mad at my RE's office because apparently I had a lead follie (about 10mm) at my ultrasound last thursday and they never said anything about it, like maybe I should stay on the bcps longer to dissolve it. And I had to call them on Friday, 10 minutes before they closed to get my results. Apparently they are too busy to call me these days. My RE had already gone for the day without leaving instructions so the nurse had to call him and then call me back. They now have me taking Estrace twice a day until AF comes to keep me suppressed. Hopefully, it will work but apparently my ovaries are so awesome they ovulate even on BCPs. So why am I not pregnant yet, if they work so well? Or they'll probably work too well and I'll end up over supressed.
To top it all off, today I learned that they are posting that job I was up for online. So I don't think I'm even going to be considered. It just pisses me off that my supervisor would even talk to me about it if they were just going to look for somebody from outside the company. Unfortunately, there is some sexism that goes on at my company and they definitely prefer men in the "positions of power". Plus, they know I'm TTC from when I asked for the IF coverage, so maybe they don't want to give it someone who could be taking maternity leave (not that I'll ever get that lucky).
I've been wallowing in self pity since last week and just can seem to find the bright side in any of this. I thought once I started the BCPs for my IVF, that things would move right along. They never told me it was even possible that the pills wouldn't do what they're supposed to, and they made it sound like it was OK if I didn't get AF after because not everyone does. Only special people get to start stims without having an AF though, and I'm not one of them. I'm so sick of waiting for things to happen just to have one delay after another. I could just scream. Why can't I at least have the delays of a just few days? Why does it always have to be weeks & months?
