Part of me hoped it would be cramps associatedwith pregnancy since its CD50 but no i am pretty sure its my old friend AF, we have a wonderful love hate relationships. Hate her when she comes because no fetus can make it through and love it when she comes so i can start my next round of clomid. I had contact the Dr. yesterday to tell her about my progression on CD49 with no positive pregnancy test, she got back to me and told me my body was probably thrown off by the first round of clomid and so she sent in a prescription for Provera– synthetic progesterone which is actually a hormone to sustain pregnancy just a little fun fact. Looks like i wont be needing it now!
Today i love my AF because i didn’t really want to take another pill/hormone although once before when i took progesterone i had an amazing text book ovulation the next cycle. I had taken it because my period randomly lasted three weeks, well it wasn’t completely random i had wedding stress that really through me off. By the way being on your period for your wedding and honeymoon is so not fun, though it brought my husband up to speed on having to make sure we had enough tampons and always had them on us while traveling (on the plains, on the dinner cruise, on the hop on buses, sight seeing….you get the point). Wow that was a tangent—-
This cycle my medications of choice will be:
(the links below are not a scientific explanations but a fellow blogger (stirrup queens) wrote them and i think they are a very human dictation very closely related to my interpretations of the medications)
- Metformin – 1500mg everyday for ever and ever
- Clomid – 100mg days 3-7
- Prenatal vitamins– 2 a day
- Trazodone – 1 at night (not for fertility for sleeping but also helps with depression)
While i love that AF is here i am not really looking forward to the side effects of the clomid. I am going to try and take them at night this time to see if it helps. Anyone fellow bloggers had any effectiveness with this? I would love to hear any advice about minimizing the side effects, like the crazy PMS like moods swings and the nausea. If fact i am going to try and go on fact finding mission to try and find something so i am prepared.
I am off and running today!
