OK, too much information .... but it's my blog. If you don't want to know the particulars ... read someone else's blog. I'm pumped and I want to share ....... :)
Part of my problem this year is that my medicine, Provera, wasn't working. I was supposed to take 10 pills over the course of 5 days to induce a period. The period is supposed to start 3-7 days after the last pill has been taken. The first time doing this it took 12 days. The 2nd time it didn't even work so the Dr upped my prescription to 15 pills over the course of 5 days. Then I got pregnant, then I miscarried, and this is the 2nd cycle since my miscarriage. Last cycle it took about 10-14 days again ... and I figured that as long as it took less than that ... we were headed in the right direction.
This cycle the stupid pill only took 4 days to work! WAHOO!!! I'm a girl!
I've had the question asked many times ... when do you take the clomid. You can't take the clomid (ovulation drug) until you have a period ... that has been my whole hold up to date! So because my period started this month I can finally take my clomid, which should help next month start up a bit easier too.
Unfortunately for me, just because I have a period, doesn't mean I ovulate. I will need to go in on day 21 to see if I ovulated. If not, I'm sure my Dr will up my clomid from 100mg to 150 (I started at 50. The highest they'll let you go, that I know of, is 250, but since clomid has some gnarly side affects .... we're hoping 100 is enough!! It is for most.)
For me, this small thing is a miracle. A small step in the right direction. I'll take it!
