What meds has your FS put you on to help control your cycle? I really wanted to skip IUI but correct we are in Melbourne and need to have at less 2 IUI failed cycles to qualify for Medicare rebate on IVF.

The first clinic we were at I was put on the pill and then when I stopped, I got AF.
The second clinic put me on Provera. It makes your AF come usually within a week or 2 of stopping (if you respond well to it, some don't and AF doesn't come because of it). Mine came 3 days later!
Then there was a whole bunch of IVF medications.

Thanks @Amy1926 - and hi to you too. I hope those side effects are manageable for you.
@BeautyOfTheSoul The IUI was so disappointing - but I also just wasn't coping well with the rollercoaster ride of trying and waiting and trying and waiting - but I'm in a better spot now.
It's a BT for a pregnancy test. AF was due Tuesday - but with all the hormones I'm just not sure how reliable that could be. Fingers crossed for a positive.

The first time I took it, I was pretty bad for a couple of weeks. It gave me stomach pain and nausea and things like that. Then my body got used to it and it mostly settled down. If I missed a pill though, it would all come back the next day.
I stopped during a stim cycle in September/October last year. I started again in March this year (I'd run out and didn't get back to the GP to get more so i could start again).
When I started again, I had no side effects at all! It was so good! Then with the stim cycle I did in April, we had a lot going on around the same time with our ceremony and everything. So I stopped it again because I was really bad at taking it. But I will start again soon.
I found it did help my cycles. They were slightly more regular. I also managed to lose almost 15kgs between that and watching what I ate. Then I put it all back on with the IVF
