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!

We are quite the topic of conversation

Or, so with my Reproductive Clinic it seems.  I got a random call from one of the nurses last week and she said that we were discussed at "conference" on Weds.  Conference is a gathering of minds in the respective field to go over "tricky" cases or to get mutiple opinions on courses of treatment.  I told her I felt quite special that we were presented.  LOL.  Mostly appreciative, really.  The discussion was on how to get my lining to thicken up, especially in the wake of my newest, short, weird cycles.  Verdict?  Prep as almost as if we were doing a full blown IVF, but, with just a transfer procedure at the end.  So, essentially, a few more drugs in the normal FET regimen.  I'll start out with BC (well, for me, Aygestin), then Lupron, Gonal F, etc, etc, etc.  I need to talk to my insurance company to see if I have any more drug allowance.  That'll really be the deal breaker for us.  We've already paid up front for a normal FET cycle.  With a few more ultrasound vists and more drugs....I just need to make sure that aspect is covered.  So, not sure when, or if, this plan will take place.  But, it's nice to feel thought of.
