We had our first appointment this afternoon!
He looked over all my labs and said that I'm not ovulating bc my FSH and LH levels are too low. If I do not start my period within the next week, I have to call and he will start me on provera. After I get my period, we are repeating labs, repeating DHs SA, and DH will have some labs too. If my FSH and LH levels are still low, we are doing and MRI of my brain to see if my pituitary is enlarged. For some reason my brain isn't stimulating my ovaries...he said it could be something with my pituitary, stress, or low weight. He said not to freak out about the pituitary thing bc it's fixable with meds and usually a pretty easy fix. He told me to try to gain 5 pounds or so over Christmas haha!

So after all this, our goal is an IUI in February. He has to decide if he wants to use injectables on me or not because I have a lot of tiny follicles on my ovaries and he is scared of over stimulating me.

So January is a testing month and hopefully we will really get somewhere in February!


Oh and my temps have been high every morning. I think I may have ovulated this month!? Crazy...the one month we take off from getting labs drawn, I get a positive OPK and my temps shoot up. Guess we will see...

I'm sorry, should have clarified that. If it is my pituitary, we will go from there and I guess fix that. If that checks out and the cause of my brain not stimulating my ovaries is something else, we will do IUI.

So great that you guys have a plan in motion! How awesome that your temps are high. Maybe you'll get a surprise BFP before January… A lot of ladies get PG when they're taking a break from TTC

Good luck to you hun!

Yay Its so nice to have a plan in place.

BTW if you don't mind me asking, how tall are you and how much do you weigh? If he thinks your too under weight maybe that's my problem? You don't have to answer if you don't want to. lol

It's ok I don't mind. I'm not underweight anymore, but my dr thinks getting my BMI up a little more will help. When I started TTC I was 5'4 and 105 lbs. now I'm 5'4 and about 108-110 lbs

You're a lot taller than me

I was about 110-112 lbs when I was having normal cycles back in high school. My dr said even a few pounds can make all the difference sometimes.
