BUMP (aka Cancelled)

Courtesy of Google Images
So there is yet another bump in the road on the way to my baby bump.  My ovaries are not responding and my follicles are not growing and estrogen is not rising... they are all 5mm or less, one is 6mm and one is 10mm.  I am cursing the damn Birth Control Pills... which I didn't want to take in the first place as a lead in to this cycle.  I'm f*&ing OVERSURPRESSED.  Not that my doctor used those words, but I have NEVER had issues with follicle response and this protocol worked beautifully during IVF2 (without the BCP lead-in).  Yes, I am a bit pissed.

I was given the option to continue meds and convert to an IUI (which is what I was thinking would be the best option) or stop the meds and start a estrogen/progesterone to stimulate the receptors on my ovaries in order to lead in to a new cycle.

I am electing to convert to an IUI because this was to be my last IVF locally.

I'm in the midst of a quick cry due to disappointment and hormones... but I've already contacted CCRM to get the ball rolling.  By my estimation I'll head out there for initial testing at the end of July.

Happy 4th everyone!!

  7. Damn it! That just stinks, especially (like you said) you didn't want to take the last month of BCPs.

    That's fantastic you've already started the process of going to CCRM. Despite the cxl'd cycle, you are still moving forward.

    When are your friends coming to celebrate all the big birthdays?? That will be so much fun :)

  8. Sorry you got such disappointing news. :( I hope that everything from this point on goes smoothly, from the IUI to switching to a new clinic.

  9. Lame! Why did they do BCP if you didn't do it last time? UGH how frustrating! Good luck, hopefully you won't need the next IVF!

  11. Grr, I hate when they put us on BCP when we know our ovaries won't bounce back. So frustrating. I am glad you have a new plan!!

  12. As another single, I follow your blog. Unfortunately I got oversuppressed my cycle too and didn't want to do the dumb BCPs because I got blood clots on them before. Live and learn! Fingers crossed the IUI is fruitful!

  13. O.M.G. Are you serious??? This really sucks, but it sounds like you already have a great plan for going forward.

  14. That seriously blows! I think making the decision to convert to IUI was a smart way not to loose a cycle. I've heard great things about CCRM so I think your plan is spot on. Keeping my fingers crossed from you!

  15. Trust me I know the cancelled feeling!! I am beginning to feel like a night time drama on ABC! Know that this is for the best and I pray the CCRM is your answer but hey, you never know...this IUI could do the trick. My fingers are crossed!

  16. Oh, I'm sorry. I have one blogger friend who was devastated to have her IVF cycle converted to an IUI and then ended up with twins. So here's hoping you could be another "urban legend" like her. ;-)

  17. Not good news to read. Have a big cry. Keep hopes up with that IUI. I hope ccrm is not needed.
