Thread: This may be it...

  1. #1

    Default This may be it...

    Finally heard back from my RE, who outlined my options:
    1) Continue with 150mg of Clomid + 75 iu shots of Follistim (this gave me one follie last time- no difference from Clomid alone). I still have one vial of Follistim, so no new additional costs than there were last cycle.
    2) Scrap the Clomid all together and just do injectibles. This would up the cost as I would need and additional $800 worth of meds plus $400 for each additional ultrasound (she said there would be more ultrasounds when doing just injectibles).
    3) Continue with the Clomid + injectibles but up the Follistim to 150 iu.
    4) Move to IVF (not an option for us financially or religiously)

    So, I opted for #3. We just went into contract on a house and need to be budget conscious, but I feel like this might be it for awhile if I don't get my BFP. We can always try naturally again, but I don't ovulate well on my own so this might be the end of the road of TTCing #2.

    I could really use some prayers for this cycle!

    Thanks!

    Sending prayers to you sweetie! The house stuff alone can be SO stressful (we're currently renovating a house) and when you add TTC into the mix it can be just plain overwhelming. Good luck and FX that this cycle is the one that works and gets you your BFP!!

    I am sending so many positive vibes your way! I really really hope this is what does the trick for you! Can femara be another option? It is cheaper that injectables

    For whatever reason, my RE is extremely hesitant to try Femara. I think it is because the long term effects are still relatively unknown. I've often wondered about Femara since I never seem to respond well to Clomid.

    I looked it up and saw this: http://www.fertilitytexas.com/femara...ty-treatments/

    Maybe your RE isn't willing to be innovating in trying relatively new therapies?

    I hope that you can convince them to try it.
