I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Roll with the punches?

Really? Cause I'm not sure how much more I can take.

FET canceled-lining isn't thick enough. Of course. I am just hovering around 6mm...which is technically enough, but, we need the best. Apparently during the fresh cycles my lining got around 10mm! So, on to another period-im stopping all meds today. What a waste.

Ill go back in June sometime for monitoring of a "normal" cycle or two to see where my lining gets naturally. If that doesn't do well and we can't try a natural FET cycle, the RE wants to try some other meds (stims I believe) to see if they help.

More of the waiting game. I am beyond frustrated and disappointed. I thought things were finally moving in the right direction!

What a way to end National Infertility week. Still infertile.

Don't give up hope. Listen to the RE, surely they wouldn't make you wait a few cycles for nothing. Thinking about you...

oh man, i'm sorry allison. i remember when my iui got canceled due to thin lining, i was DEVASTATED. after my lap and months of supression they switched me from clomid to gonal f and that did the trick. i hope you are able to find something that works for you soon.

Oh honey, I am so frustrated and disapointed for you. I hope that on a new cycle you can get a beautiful thick lining for your embyro to snuggle in to.

Have you in my thoughts and prayers - stay strong.
