All Clear

Well, today I had my hysteroscopy (4th one since March) and endometrial biopsy. All I can say is holy s**t it hurt...the biopsy that is. I felt some cramping but apparently that was only the fluid that they use to get a clear look into your uterus. Just as I was thinking that it wasn't as bad as I had thought it would be, BAM, I think I jumped about a foot up off of the table despite being medicated. It didn't last long but boy did it suck! On a positive note everything looked fine. I also had a second set of baselines today and everything looked great. My estrogen was up to 366 after 3 doses of Estradiol Valerate. My FSH dropped from 5.7 down to 0.6 so I am adequately suppressed. Another great thing was my lining. At my first set of baselines last week it was measuring 3.46mm, today, even before starting stims, it was already up to 5.58mm. For me this is great. I just hope it keeps thickening as I would like to get over 8mm for a change.

So now the fun begins. Tomorrow I start the regimen from hell. Here is how the next 12 to 14 days are looking:

6am
25mg DHEA
100mg Co Q10
5mg Terbutaline
25mg Vaginal Viagra
Align

12pm
25mg Vaginal Viagra

2pm
5mg Terbutaline
25mg DHEA

6pm
25mg Vaginal Viagra

9pm
5mg Terbutaline
600iu Follistim
125mcg Ganirelix
15mg Prednisone
25mg DHEA
100mg Co Q10
81mg Aspirin
CitraNatal
DHA

12am
25mg Vaginal Viagra

**I also continue on the 4mg of Estradiol Valerate every 3 days until my follicles are over 12mm and on Tuesday I will add in 37.5iu Menopur daily until trigger.**

As awful as this looks, I am happy to be starting again. I am not happy that I have to do this again, but it is nice that things are moving along and I am not sitting around waiting because something is wrong or my body isn't cooperating.

  1. Great numbers and great results! It's a good thing that you are pleasantly Type A. That medication schedule would be seriously daunting for mere mortals, but it is you...so I know "you got this." You are on some medications that I have no experience with but, as always, please know that I am always here to help out with info if I can. I'm so excited that things are starting off so wonderfully for this cycle.

  2. Wow - that is one heck of a medication schedule. I'm hopeful that this is the right regimen for you. I'll be following (in a non-stalker way). Fingers crossed.

  3. Wow, hearing your experience with the hysteroscopy/endometrial biopsy makes me really glad I was knocked out for mine (had one back in January)! I'm glad the results were positive, though, and wishing you all the best this cycle!
