    Default Long cycles suck!

    So I reached cd44 after my m/c @5w3d and still no O! I called my RE on Friday, and finally got a prescription today. I have never gone this long without O. Ugh.

    Once I get AF I will get some testing done and then start meds that same cycle if everything goes well! I can't wait to get this show on the road!

    So what are your experiences with provera? I am on 10mg for 10 days. When should I expect to get AF?

    Hey honey! I have taken Provera for 10 days about 3 times and tried the 5 day regimen. With the 10 days I started 3-4days after the last pill but sometimes it's 14days after the last pill but I only had to wait 14days from the first pill all times. I pray it's 3-4days and it moves quickly for you!

    I've never done provera, but I've done prometrium for 10 days more times than I can count. Usually AF comes within a couple of days of stopping the last pill. This last time she took a little over a week, and once she didn't come at all, and I had to go to the RE for a progesterone shot :/

    Thanks for the support ladies! I sure hope AF comes when I want her too, I feel like she owes me after coming all those times when I didn't want her too!

    Also I was having pretty bad cramps this morning. Does anyone know if it is possible to get AF when I am still on provera?

    I think its one of the side effects, I had cramps and tender boobs the whole time, ended up getting PMS symptoms too. I hope it comes early for you though!

    Thanks for the info ladies! I just took my 4th pill (out of 10 days- only 6 more left!!)

    Is it weird to have EWCM while on provera? I feel like the progesterone in it should be enough to counteract the estrogen?

    Thanks, me too!!! I just found out that another person at work was pg today, that makes 2 ppl announcing their pg at work since I had my m/c. I am very happy for them (and you!!!!) but I really want to be pg again soon! I think one of them must have gotten pg at the same time as me, bc she just announced it.

    I hope you are doing well, and your u/s on the 9th looks absolutely perfect!!!

    Yes. This happened to me on the cycle following my D&C. AF came when I had three pills left to take.

    This happened to me this past cycle. Pretty sure I O'd even after starting the prometrium since I had a 15mm follie there. I had lots of EWCM for the first couple of days starting prometrium. Since AF didn't show until a week after I stopped taking the pills, I'm pretty sure I O'd despite the prometrium.

    I'm just a wealth of prometrium info tonight.

    Thanks for the info gator! I am not sure if I will o, since I have been having EWCM on and off for the past month but it is good to know that I could o- I kinda hope that I don't though (for once!) so I can get finished with the work up and start treatment sooner.

    BTW your chart looks great!!!!

    So i had my appointment today! My tubes are open and my uterus is normal!!! And she was totally up for us doing IUI with a trigger instead of just a medicated cycle! So we are starting femara today for 5 days and then I have a u/s next Friday! I am hoping that everything goes well and this makes me ovulate and at a normal time in the cycle! (and get pg too!!)
