Can I get some follicle growing vibes!!

Girls, I could use some positive follicle growing vibes!

This is my second cycle on Clomid and I had the dose increased to 75mg. My body is not co-operating though.

My E2 (estrogen) is WAY INSANE high (over 2500) but my follicles aren't growing. I do have a cyst, but it's not the kind that produces estrogen (they think). The doctors are baffled where my estrogen levels are coming from. I had 4 follicles at 9, 9, 10, 11mm but they didn't grow from CD11 to CD12. I had a break from ultrasound today and go back tomorrow for status.

I REALLY want at least one to grow (maybe two) because I don't want to throw away this cycle. The docs are already saying that they think that the follicles won't grown and I'm screwed.

So, if you guys have it in you, could you send me some positive follicle growing vibes??

Thank you girls. We shall see tomorrow what the status is. I really hope at least one has grown. Friday was not fun at work when I found out something might be wrong, so if it's still not working tomorrow, I'll be fighting tears at work all day.

GROW FOLLIES GROW!!!!!!!!! Good luck Rachael

Question- Since everything worked so well last time with the fertilization why are they changing around your treatment?

Angela - no idea. I think they like to have more than one follicle and I only had one on 50mg Clomid. They were hoping I would get two instead I think. Instead it screwed everything up. Sad

Unfortunately the only thing that grew was my cyst at 3.5cm now. Sad

Waiting on the call from the clinic some time today but the cycle is probably a bust. There is a small chance that there is a follicle in or right near the cyst that they can't see but they don't want to waste my $ on an IUI for a "just in case". We can try on our own if we want though.

Now I don't know what to do!! To I do the IUI when there may or may not be an egg (they said there has to be one if I had an LH surge). THey cannot even say if it's under mature, mature, or over mature if it's hidden by the cyst!

GRRRRRRRRRRR.....

Sophia - no IUI or anything until at least July if I miss this one, as I have a road trip to Florida with my DH and my parents that will be smack dab in the middle of my next two cycles (end of the next one and beginning of the one after). I think that's why I'm so antsy.

Question: If there IS a great follie behind the cyst that they can't see, How will the cyst affect it? Will it block it from actually releasing? :confused:

I say if this is your only shot for a few months, then go for it, but I would be with you.. $350 on a chance is kinda of big hard to decide...

LOL I just asked DH - "would it stress you out massively if I tell you I want to skip the IUI and we will have to DTD tonight, tomorrow, and Wednesday?"

His response - "Immensely."

(we work together and have a company version of MSN so we can message each other back and forth)

Still haven't decided what I want to do and I have about 30 min to cancel the appointment.

Thanks everyone for the vibes and whatnot. I cancelled the IUI. I'll try and get DH in the mood but no guarentee it will work.

Oh well.... maybe they will give my BCP to shrink the cyst and I can have a period free vacation on the beach in June.

Sorry to hear that but I'm sure it's for the best. I think we honestly know how bodies sometimes better than doctors. Maybe once that cyst is removed, your eggs will flow freely down those tubes. I hope you get some special time with your DH, it's hard being the only one who's actually active in trying to make a baby. I think most of us had been there once or twice before. Hugs:bigarmhug:

I'm so sorry you had to cancel but I think you know yourself well enough to know whats right for your body.

I hope your DH can get some lovin' in so you can catch it on your own. Good luck!!
