Unmedicated and unmonitored...

My best friend is visiting from California, so I won't be posting for a couple days, but wanted to give an update on this cycle.

I called Dr. M's office on CD1 and left a message asking for a call back to discuss the plan for this cycle. I got a voicemail a couple hours later from the doctor saying that he thinks I should just do an IUI with no meds and no monitoring because he thinks it is a male factor problem at this point and the Menopur was mainly to help with my CM, which doesn't matter with an IUI of course. I don't really think that is a great idea since my time is so limited with this doctor. I did the math. We have only this frozen cycle and then one more cycle when the Husband comes home. That's all. Then I have to start all over in a new place with a new doctor. And I don't know if I can do that again. I am exhausted. How can it be this hard to get pregnant when some people just look at each other and get knocked up?

It's not fair.

So I called and left yet another message asking him to call me to discuss things further because I don't want to feel like I am wasting a cycle. I don't have the time or money to throw away. I am turning 28 tomorrow...I don't want to keep waiting.

Needless to say, I have yet to hear back from him. And it's now CD5, so it's almost too late to start anything at this point anyway. Lovely.

I'll be back in a few days with a post, and hopefully a new attitude. We shall see.


  1. Oh man! I am thinking of you! Sounds like a really frustrating situation! Happy early birthday!!! <3

  2. Ugh that sucks. Thinking about you. Have a great next few days. Hope it's a good distraction for you!
