Wish I would have stayed on the progesterone longer lol!

Here's what I wrote my Dr and I hope it makes sense:
Hi Dr W----,
I figured I would message you before I end up confusing the front staff. I figured maybe you could pass this along to Annie?
So i started spotting tonight. Meaning that CD 1 is tomorrow I guess (or tonight depending on what you go by- I have read if you start after 5pm it counts as the next day).
So CD 13 is on a Sunday (or best case scenario, Saturday) and I tend to have really large follicles by CD13. So i have no idea when to book or what to do
Maybe Thursday (18th) afternoon appointment again and then IUI on Saturday if it looks good? And just hope they are mature enough?
Or I can delay the HCG and do my trigger 24 hours before the IUI if I have to if they need a little bit more time.
Or maybe depending on the follicles do the IUI Monday. I really worry about Monday being too late and having those huge 24mm follicles on CD13 so by 14 they would most likely be too big.
What are your thoughts?

Sounds great Do you think that maybe taking Femara 4-8 or 5-9 would help any?

I wish I knew more about Femara. But I like your email and I like you being an advocate for yourself. You need to.

I'm sorry you're on a new cycle.

Thanks ladies
I swear I annoy doctors LOL! I over think and then advocate

Thats good to hear Sonica! I will try it then!
I have an apt with the new clinic tomorrow so maybe they will take me on this cycle and this will all be moot. JIC tho I have this going on with the OBGYN.

I also O'd later when I took clomid from 5-9 compared to 3-7.

Hope that fixes the issue!

I O'd on CD12 with Femara and CD16 with Clomid....I do think Femara bumps you earlier....I think your email is great! More people should be so proactive with their healthcare...infertility and otherwise.

Best of luck to you Lucy...I was really hoping you wouldn't have to start another cycle.

I'm sorry I didn't get to look at the stats and info you posted up on the IVF Board...I'll look at it tomorrow and give you some feedback. I drive an hour and a half each way to my clinic. Sucks. Especially next Monday and Wed for a simple BETA! ...I chose my clinic, because it was the closest. I didn't even look at stats, to be honest!
