I have a 20mm cyst- most likely Corpus Luteum Cyst to be exact.
I say most likely because I am on Clomid and Clomid is known to make Corpus Luteum Cysts.
This morning my doctor and I discussed how much pain I am in right now and then he did my ultra sound. That's when Big Bertha was located
Dr. S said I needed to have my blood work done. If my new friend Big Bertha was producing hormones this cycle was to be cancelled until Big Bertha left. So off I went to get blood work and fret for over 6 hours about whether or not this cycle was a bust prior to even beginning.
Dr. S and I also talked about my progesterone- or rather lack of progesterone. Dr S. has decided that I will start progesterone vaginal suppositories after IUI.
Thankfully I just received word that Big Bertha is non hormone producing - so ding ding ding we are go for Clomid Round 3.
150mg days 3-7- however since I wasn't allowed to start Clomid today I will start tomorrow -technically my day 4.
Dexamethasone until I am pregnant .25 mg daily.
Progesterone Suppositories after ovulation.
Metformin was discontinued.. I don't think I ever wrote about my fun side affects due to this drug- needless today it wasn't working out and we parted ways.
*Please. Please. Please Please be the magic mix of medications to get us our happy ending*
Dr. S and I briefly touched on injectibles today. Basically I will have a much more in depth lesson and meeting about them if it comes to them.
More than likely we will also have to take a break cycle after this one because I'm producing a lovely Big Bertha and they are afraid I may continue to produce Big Bertha's siblings.
Since Im returning to happy- optomistic- begining a new cycle Kasey- lets not start to think about that right now. IUI # 3 is gonna be the cycle. 3rd times the charm mi amigos!
In review- my ovary feels like I'm being stabbed because of Big Bertha. My uterus is shedding a 10mm lining. And I am about to start another round of 150mg Clomid.
Ding. Ding. Ding let the fun begin.
What Big Bertha probably looks like right now- ya know in case you were all wondering about my ovaries today..
