Eh, it is what it is.
Rest assured, however, there are no gruesome or scandalous details today.
Sorry to some, and you're welcome to most!
Mid-second cycle currently, the hormones are raging, and I'm officially feeling like a human pin-cushion now. (The first 6 months of Lupron injections probably has probably contributed a smidge.)
First cycle wasn't eventful, aside from being our initial go with meds. Other than that, a "(Clomid x 5)+Repronex+(Fostamin x 2)+Ovatril+(RX of 7 days of sex)=Fruitless" equation went down.
Had 4 follicles that cycle, but none were the gladiators we'd been hoping for, with the largest ones weighing-in at 11mm & 13mm, respectively. (For the record, Repronex is THE itchiness damn shot in the history of the earth. And Fostamin is like Miracle-Gro for follicles. In case you were wondering, of course. If you weren't, too bad.) For reference-sake, 14mm is ideal. So, close but no cigar that round.
Let it be known, however, that despite the fact our 1st cycle didn't yield the results we were hoping for, the 7-day RX is Mr LKP's most favorite prescription ever & my doc is his most favorite doctor ever too! (And that's saying a lot since Mr LKP avoids prescriptions & doctors like the plague, lol!)
THIS round, however, the equation is currently a little different. More like "(Clomid x 10)+Repronex+(Fostamin x 3)+(Fostamin x 3)+Ovatril+(RX of 7 days of sex)= ...we're not sure yet." Well in actuality, we do know that my chances are greater (aside from the fact that more meds usually=better chances).
This round I have 5 follicles, and the biggest ones weighed in at 18mm, 20mm, and over 21mm! Even better, both of the smallest follicles measured at about 14mm each!
So even though one ovary is apparently an under-achiever, our hopes are higher than ever before! Which is kinda scary, hoping again; and all over something microscopic like follicles.
When that realization came down, I won't lie, the room started spinning a little. But if that's in our family cards, then bring it on. (My lady plumbing cringes a little at the idea of 5 little stressors, but whatevs.)
So there you go. Because obviously, enquiring minds want to know!
::fingers & legs crossed... lol, well kinda::
