Quoting brodyzmom:" Your 35 day cycles are unmedicated, right? I bet you O earlier on the femara. Yay for a cycle buddy! :D"


It's hard to say. My cycles in the past have never had any rhyme or reason to them. After getting on metformin they started to be 5-6 weeks. With clomid I had one cycle that went for 7 one that was under 4 then the last was 5 and the unmedicated was 5. So I guess I have no clue lol. I think the metformin just really started working for me. I've been on it for 8? Months now. My periods have gotten more regular in the past 2 months and my face has cleared up quite a bit. I guess we will see what happens.

Maybe you'll have better luck on the femara. I never O'd on the clomid, but the femara worked for me last month. Hopefully between it and the metformin you'll be a perfect little 28 day'er. LOL

I had my 3 day blood draw today and it was a student which I'm 100% for helping out but I think she did it wrong because my arm is swollen and it hurts to extend it. It was uncomfortable while she was doing it but I just figured she was new and nervous.....

I'm so sorry sweetie! I know what you're going through. The week after my m/c I had 4 friends find out they were pregnant or post their first US on FB. It sucked big donkey ones.

Swollen? How swollen? Does it look bruised at all? Where did she draw from? The A/C (bend of arm)? Definitely ice it.

yes, the A/C it's noticeably swollen and now it is starting to bruise. It feels like I have a 3 in lump in the bend of my arm. I think she stuck it in too far, or at least that's what it felt like.

Ok, as long as it's just swollen where she punctured you and not the whole arm, you'll be fine. I'm sure she just blew the vein. Ice it - 20 min on, 20 min off.

Bengay around the area not directly helps too! I helped teach a few classes and let 1 student try on me and they blew the vein, just watch if you get a bubble and call your family doctor, it may have to be drained. Bengay helped more than anything.

Hopefully with my next AF (mid April) as long as everything goes through on time with insurance. They take weeks to approve each IVF cycle :( Guess I can't complain, we're lucky to have coverage but waiting is tough.

I wish anything was covered with mine, PCOS is barely covered.

It is, we're very fortunate! Mass is one of the few states that mandates full infertility coverage. Its been a HUGE blessing for us. IVF would not be in our cards anytime soon (if ever) otherwise.
