Such great news mam!!
I got bad news today. My e is not doing anything so i have to go in tomorrow and they are adding another drug in, what could this be?!? In such a dark place at the moment :'(
Awesome news, Mam!
21andtrying - I don't know what drug it could be, but I hope someone else can help. How frustrating for you! It's such an emotional rollercoaster, isn't it? Hope you can take it easy tonight and have a quiet evening. Sounds like you could do with a nice cup of tea (glass of wine??) and a bath, or something similarly relaxing! Keep us posted.
No im not sure maybe metformin?? Im not on that yet :s what does that exactly do??
I'm not sure why they would just start it midway through the cycle though, usually they start it well in advance. My doc got me to start 6 months ago..?? We shall see tomorrow!! Let us know!!! Xoxo
Metformin can also (through the ways mentioned above) help you to lose weight. I'm taking it too, even though my weight is within the healthy range. My FS explained that some women's bodies are designed to ovulate at a very low weight - almost underweight - and that while he wasn't advocating losing much weight at all, it can sometimes help the process along and make your body more sensitive to the hormones you're taking. (I don't have PCOS, although have had polycystic ovaries before - if that makes sense).
Hahahahahahhaha oh girls you will never guess!!!!! AF arrived with A VENGEANCE this morning!!! But I started injecting last night!!! Aaaahahahahahahahaha!!!
I should have listened to u 21andtrying! Hopefully it will be fine, my FS said to start taking it as soon as my period came so I'm sure 6 hours won't make a difference... And I was spotting for days anyway... Will probably have to inject for extra days anyway cause of my stubborn ovaries!! I will give them a call..
How did u go today 21andtrying????
Hahaha oh well mam at least she came
So went to the clinic today and im not on metformin, they gave me a HCG shot. I will also have one on sunday. Its aparently used as an absorber for the gonal f, just a booster they reckon, so fingers crossed it works.
Now hearing about the metformin i want to go on it. Is it only a script? I might ask when i go in on monday.
How are the rest of you coping? Any side effects??
Fingercrossed this cycle is ours!! Xx
Go for the slow release tablets and take them after dinner, to minimize the side effects. They usually start u on 500 for a few weeks, 1000 for a fee weeks etc. I can't handle more than 1500! FS said that was fine though.
Ah HCG!!! Of course!!! Hopefully that will get things moving for u!! Fingers crossed!!!
How is the jabbing going minipolly?? Had my first one last night, it was like riding a bike!! Haha
