@clucky_duck I just had my internal us today and it was fine. The "implement" is reasonably narrow, plus because I am so close to O I have a lot of CM to help it along . If it's really painful, they might not be putting enough lube on it.
@sydney1980 I'm so sorry Hun.
@Mahalia27 I'm on my first tracking cycle which has cost me $385 (I think I will get about $180 back) and it includes all my blood tests, appointments and u/s this cycle. If I need medication next cycle, I will pay approx $385 again plus whatever the meds cost. This will again include all the bloods etc.
AFM: u/s showed a good sized dominant follicle, got my first +ve OPK today and the LH surge was backed up by the blood test. I have been "ordered" to have intercourse for the next 3 days, my poor V is going to feel so bruised
