    Default What would you do? (x-posted)

    I had my RE appt today. It's the first time since I've seen her since having DS with the exception of getting a second opinion regarding our miscarriage last fall. She did an ultrasound and said that I have a 15mm follie on the right ovary, but couldn't guarantee that I would ovulate from it. I'm also having tons of EWCM right now. Her recommendation was to start taking the prometrium tonight to induce AF and start a new cycle with Clomid and IUI. I'm sooo tempted to go for it knowing there is the possibility of O soon, but I'm already 40+ days into this cycle, and last time I O'd that late, it ended up in a miscarriage (trisomy 22).

    What would you do?

    This was a non-medicated cycle, right? If so, I would totally go for the prometrium and get started ASAP on a medicated cycle.

    The only time I was able to conceive on a non-medicated cycle, I miscarried. I didn't O that late in my cycle, and I don't know why I miscarried, but it has competely terrified me, and I don't even WANT to get pregnant non-medicated again. So... take my opinion with a grain of salt!

    But even without that worry, I would still want to get on with the next cycle. I would imagine you have higher chances of it working medicated than not medicated, so I'd go with that.

    Best of luck and baby dust!!

    My miscarriage last fall was from a late O (around CD41). The baby ended up being Trisomy 22, and my RE and OB said it was likely a fluke due a bad egg. I started the prometrium last night mostly because I'm 90% sure I now have a UTI that needs to be treated. I'd rather get everything taken care of and start from the beginning now.

    As long as you feel good about what you are doing, then you are doing the right thing. I think that you and your body (with the help of your MD) know what is best for you. Good luck!
