And I'm back!
Well, there's bad news and there's semi-not-so-bad news.
Bad news first: I've already had all the tests done, including the 7DPO b/w. I kind of had a feeling that I had... Dang my shoddy memory! As for the post-coital, Dr. G said it's basically been proven useless except in extreme cases, such as if you've had cone biopsies where the CM has been effected. So, not gonna happen.
Sigh... And I was so excited about having 50% coverage for diagnosis! I guess it's a good thing though, considering all my tests were 100% covered by my old insurance.
Dr. G started yammering on about how this is only my second C since the lap, and when I told him I'm not getting any younger he actually rolled his eyes at me! Punk. I like the guy, but he pisses me off sometimes too. ;) He said to keep using the OPKs and give it a few more months to see if the lap did the trick. Well I told him there's been a cycle or two (and I think this might be one of them) where I never did see a positive OPK, and that my EWCM has been MIA a few times as well... Which leads me to...
The semi-not-so-bad news: He gave me a prescription for Clomid. 50mg, CD5-9. No, it's not going to be monitored, and Dr. G wasn't too concerned about that when I asked. I'm a little nervous about it, but I'm also a little desperate. If not for the fact that I haven't seen a truly positive OPK this C (and another recent C too) - and that the lines are now getting lighter, and that I still haven't seen any EWCM - I would seriously consider not taking it. But I think I'm going to go for it. I know there are risks to using it unmonitored - multiples, thin lining, cysts, etc., but I'm thinking - it's only 1 C. Hubs is going out of town at the end of the month, which will be around O time next C, so I probably won't even use it until the C after next.
Feel free to verbally abuse me for my irresponsibility. (Just kidding, please don't abuse me, verbally or otherwise. I'm sensitive!)
I do have this nagging feeling I should get the b/w redone... But I also wonder if the reason I haven't seen a positive OPK lately is because I've been taking them later in the day, almost 8:00, when before I always took them at 5:00. They did get darker and darker this C, very nearly as dark as the control line the other day, so I'm wondering if I may have just missed it? Plus the tests I'm using now are the SUPER cheap ones, and I've even had some complete duds in the batch. Still doesn't explain the lack of EWCM, but I don't feel inside, I just wipe and check. There's been no problem with lubrication...
Ugh. Do you sometimes feel like you just know WAY TOO MUCH about all this stuff??? I kind of miss being ignorant.
Okay this is getting ridiculous and I actually do have some work to do before heading home. So I shall wish you all a good day and a wonderful weekend!
