Three months was enough time for me to forget these damn whole flashes that Letrozole brings with it.
My RE has a long waiting time for appointments. I had one for the end of December. Last week when I called to restart the medicines, I asked them to please check for any new openings. I was lucky enough to get one appointment for this coming Thursday.
Last year, just when I was supposed to start the treatment for the 1st time, a major hurricane came and it was really hard to get the medicines. Now, another one is coming. The irony…
Anyways, I’m hoping that we would be able to do an IUI this cycle but I have so many questions:
- Is it a good idea to do it in the first month back on medication after my break?
- What happens if I have the LH surge on a weekend?
- What happens if I don’t get the smiley face on the test? How would we know?
It is very scary because I know the success rate is only between 10-20% and I would be a huge financial cost for us to try each month. I also don’t know how much we will have to pay for the medications, ultrasounds, procedure, etc.
I found a very affordable place for IVF in upstate NY. If anyone needs the information, please contact me. That’s the next step for us. But for that, we would have to wait.
Ay ladies, this is so hard.
