MY FIRST BLOG!! WELL, MY HUBBY AND I HAVE BEEN TTC SINCE MAY O8. WITHOUT THE HELP OF FERTILITY DRUGS, I DON'T OVULATE. I HAVE BEEN ON BOTH CLOMID AND FEMARA, BOTH TAKEN WITH PROGESTERONE AND DEXAMETHASON. IT ALL MADE THINGS A LITTLE BETTER. HOWEVER, I STILL DON'T HAVE FOLLICLES LARGE ENOUGH TO PRODUCE IMPREGNABLE EGGS. I WAS GETTING ULTRASOUNDS DAY 10 OF EVERY CYCLE. SO LAST THURSDAY I HAD AN ULTRSOUND. THE NEXT DAY THE DOCTOR CALLED BACK. IT WAS A TOTAL SHOCK. SHE SAID THAT THE TREATMENTS SHE HAS GIVEN ME ARE NOT WORKING FOR ME AND THAT IS ALL SHE CAN DO. SHE SAID SHE WON'T BE SEEING ME ANYMORE SINCE SHE CAN'T HELP ME. SHE REFERRED ME TO A SPECIALIST AND SUGGESTED I START FOLLISTIM INJECTIONS. AT THIS POINT I FEEL HOPELESS. SHE'S BEEN MY DOCTOR SINCE I WAS 15 AND NOW IT SEEMS LIKE SHE'S GIVEN UP TOO. I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT FOLLISTIM. BUT I DO KNOW IT'S EXPENSIVE. WE ARE JUST VERY NERVOUS AND DISSAPPOINTED.
