Lining: 8.5 (he said this is good...)
Follies: 18, 18.5, and 22 (small for me, but good all the same)

Now for the bed part. This is pretty much it for us. This is our last month on the Clomid; he will not give Femera; and we cannot afford injectibles. If this IUI doesn't work, we're our of realistic options.

Thanks ladies. Dr I won't give Femera because of a black box warning even though he KNOWS I know the "risks," have done my own research, and don't care. In fact, he agrees that we wouldn't likely have any issues, but *still* won't give it to me.

As far as finding another doctor, the best OB's office in the area has told me I'm beyond their help and he's the only RE. A friend told me about an RE clinic 2.5 hours away, but they also don't do Femera.

Femera has a warning that states it may cause birth defects (but hasn't been studied in depth). Personally, I am not at all concerned about the warnings for the following reasons:

* Femera has a short half-life meaning it doesn't build up in the body like Clomid. Realistically the Femera would be completely out of your body by the time the baby implants.
* There's no information about if the women with the issues were infertility patients or breast cancer patients.
~ If she is a breast cancer patient then, how do we know it's not another one of her meds OR how do we know it's not a result of the drug combination?
~ If she is an infertility patient, who's to say there wasn't an underlying genetic issue anyway. (Even with all the genetic testing possible, my RE still feels ours is an undiagnosed genetic issue.)
~ There's a lot to be said for coincidence, too. Birth defects DO happen without a "cause." A friend of mine has lost two sons due to different birth defects. No meds, no genetic issue for her or her DH in testing.
* Lastly, since this hasn't arisen from a study there's no way of knowing how many women reported birth defects and how many had healthy babies.

I should add that my RE agrees with my logic, but still refuses to give the med.
