Sorry ladies....nothing good to report. I didn't test again after my BFN on 12 DPO. I'm 15 today and AF will start today, no doubt, so I'm on to January (when/if that board ever pops up).

I'm going to do IUI #2 this month, but admit I don't have high hopes for it. I know my RE wants us to try 3 of them, but we're out of pocket on all of this, and if this second one doesn't take I am going to have to seriously consider whether we try and third or just start looking into IVF.

I'm surprisingly not depressed--I haven't cried this cycle. But, I'm just TIRED. This is month 15. I'm so tired of thinking about this....

(((((HUGS)))))

I understand the feeling of being tired. I'm emotionally, mentally and physically drained from this whole process. I hope your next cyle is the winner. Is your RE going to change anything for your next cycle?

No, no plans to switch anything up. Ovulation isn't my issue, so I don't need much in the way of stimming. I ovulate every month, pretty regularly, so they just use the clomid for a little boost and control. My issue is because of the endo and scar tissue--don't know if those eggs ever make it where they need to be. So........not so sure if IUI is really ALL that helpful, because while it's nice to have the sperm there, makes zero difference if the egg isn't. My tubes are clear....but 15 cycles and no pregnancy means something is amiss, for sure....

((HUGS)) I can't imagine how frustrating that must be. I hope they're able to figure what's going on quickly so you can get your BFP!

I'm sorry Erin. So frustrating. I'm hoping that somehow AF isn't on her way and you have a little bean inside!

I see, Erin. Will they at least switch up the timing of the IUI? Maybe do two back to back? Sorry....I don't mean to ask so many questions...I guess I'm just really rooting for you. Smile

No problem! Smile The timing should be better this time around. The first time was a bit of a "guess" since they didn't know how I would respond to the drugs and were worried about overstimulating me. This time around I will be monitoring and OPK'ing and go in the day after the first positive OPK test--so, typically, that is O day for me.

I'm glad to hear that you'll be monitored more closely! I'm going to keep everything crossed for your next cycle! Biggrin

Erin I am so sorry! AF is starting to enter the building for me as well which will put me at cycle 15. It is absolutely a horrible feeling. Know that I am thinking and praying for you hun, and I hope everything works out real soon for you!

I'm sorry to hear AF is on her way...I cant imagine how frustrated you must feel, I really hope that you get your BFP very very soon. It's still only been a few months since your endo was cleared, is it two cycles? You never know your BFP could be just around the corner and i really hope it is!! I have heard it can take a few cycles after the lap...
