No, We Ain't Gonna Take It

I guess my body didn't get the memo that the temp shift is supposed to go from low to high, not high to low.

After the conversation with my doc's nurse last week, she recommended that if I didn't get my period by CD35 (which since I didn't ovulate, isn't technically a "period" but whatever...) that I should call and get a prescription for progesterone to get this cycle over with.

I called this morning, but I'm not going to take it. Not yet, anyway.

Last month it was about 15 days from the day I started the pills until the cycle ended. If I start taking the pills now, I should get my "period" about six days before our RE appointment. Not good. I imagine the very first thing that the RE will do is order CD3 bloodwork (which my ob/gyn should have done when I asked about it last cycle) and if I'm already on CD6 at the time of the appointment, I'll have to wait until the next cycle (and Lord knows how long that will take) to start our testing. I don't want to do that, so I'm going to hold off another week or so before I start taking progesterone.

It's exhausing to have to constantly think about this stuff & be one step ahead, but hopefully, it will be worth it.

  1. IF is like chess sometimes. You have to strategically plan for the next move of the game! Fingers crossed that things work out in time for the RE appt!
