I'm in the process of waiting for my donors scan and in the meantime I asked CFC what I need to be doing to get myself ready. My first instruction is to wait for my period to indicate that I need to start taking the Pill. Problem is my period is very unpredictable. Yes, I've peed on a stick. No, not pregnant. I fly back to work tomorrow and when I get back was hoping that we'd be getting ready to fly to CFC at the end of June. Does anyone know if a person has to have a regular period to get themselves in sync with the donor?
@Offshorechick I can't take the pill and have very irregular periods...if worse come to worse sometimes they will ask for a blood test to see if you have ovulated, if you haven't they will start you on the down reg drugs...if you have AF won't be far away or there is always provera as a last resort that brings on AF within 5-7 days. Do you have a FS here you're working with? Maybe ask for some baseline bloods E2, P4, and TSH to see where your hormones are at.
I told CFC that my periods were irregular and that also I may be experiencing premenopause. They suggested that I start the pill on the date that my donor is undergoing screening, so hopefully it will synchronize with her cycle as well. CFC gave me provisional date of mid July. All the best though with your cycle and journey.
