You're so lucky your insurance covers the meds! I'm sorry you have to convert to IUI though, I know that's soooooo disappointing. :( IVF is often very much trial and error. Your RE will change your protocol for your next cycle.

Quoting Amelia Margaret:" Yep I got the paperwork for both the ECC results (atypical cells) and bloodwork yesterday and spent ... [snip!] ... just baby aspirin and prescription folate but I'm not sure what my RE will recommend. That's IF I'm able to ever try again. :?"


I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so sorry to hear about the results. I hope that you get to try again and get the baby you deserve and have waited so long for.

Maybe we'll get lucky and not have to she'll out the money for ivf! And I might ovulate on the weekend which is when DH is home so I think we're just gonna go old fashioned. She's keeping up the same meds and I'm coming back for another scan thursday

So I got my 7dpo progesterone levels back... 1.6. It looks like I didn't O. I'm just waiting for AF to show.
DH is really, really upset. He says he doesn't want to even try again. Honestly, I'm kinda leaning that direction. I think I want to give us a few more cycles and if we don't get it then I guess it wasn't meant to be with the donor. He's going to have his surgery probably later this year or early next year. Maybe his sperm count will go up with weight loss. Who knows?! Maybe it's just all a sign for us to stop doing what we're doing.

So, so sorry! Maybe a trigger is all you need for everything to work. I can only imagine how frustrated you are though...

It's never happened to me. All I want to do is cry. That was a waste of sperm and money. It just sucks. My RE isn't going to be in until Thursday... the nurse sent her a message so we could figure out a plan. It sounds like monitoring and a trigger as we originally planned.
I'm so upset we wasted this cycle... on the bright side at least I won't have another tubal this month, I guess...

That just sucks. Why in the hell did your body decide to do that?

Sorry that sucks! Here we thought this month was gonna be the one for both of us. I'm a little disappointed I don't get to do ivf but at least I'm not waiting anymore money! And maybe Ill get to keep my savings and just get pregnant. Remember we got to stay positive!

Before you give up, I would ask for closer monitoring and clomid or femara, IDK I have a hard time giving up and would look into other things you can do, and to make sure that these cycles are successful.



But correct me, when I did monitored cycles, wasnt anything over 1 ovulation? It has been awhile. I thought low post ovulation p4 was a Luteal Phase Defect?



I am kinda push it to the limit type of person, I would rather toss everything at something then go half in. IF sucks already, why delay what we want?
