CD1: now what’s the plan?

Well, my period arrived as expected – right about 5 p.m. yesterday afternoon.

Today is CD1. First cycle of IUI with meds.

I am scheduled for my first follicle monitoring appointment on December 6th or CD10. Isn’t this late to be starting Clomid? 

I am so fucking confused right now.

Mr. Google tells me one thing. I know my body does another (and clearly the doctor too). 

I called the Doctor’s office back for clarification, but the receptionist told me she wasn’t really sure and I should just come in for my appointment and wait for the IUI clinic to call.

How am I supposed to figure out my schedule for the next month?

When will I be done my meds?

When will I take my trigger shot?

When I can expect to have to drive the 2+ hours to the IUI clinic because my lovely city doesn’t offer the procedure?

Oh yeah, I forgot. (In)fertility treatments mean you have no schedule! You can’t plan beyond the next week.

Time to let go of my need to plan. Grrreeat. You think I would have realized this sooner.

I tend to ovulate naturally around CD 19-20. The doc said this will be a medicated cycle with low dose of Clomid and a trigger shot, but does it make sense to start Clomid on CD 10?

Can any one out there help me? If not, I guess I’ll be waiting until my appointment.

I have a reiki session this afternoon that I am SO LOOKING FORWARD TO. I need some grounding right now.

Calm that brain down, Lindsey. Relax. A week wait isn’t that long. Throw that need to plan out the window. 

You can do this.

  1. I think CD 10 is really late. My RE says between CD 3-5. Maybe it’s because you have long cycles, but Clomid has made me ovulate way earlier, so it could do the same for you. I used to O on CD 18, and with clomid it’s 14. I would call your RE and get an answer before your appointment so it’s not too late.
