Clomid!

We saw our doctor again yesterday, and went in knowing we wanted to try Clomid and not willing to leave without it. We re-explained our situation, emphasizing our unwillingness to ask our donor for sperm for another year (as doc suggested).  He said giving us the Clomid was no biggie, but he doesn’t think it’ll do the trick for us since I’m already having regular periods.  Thanks for shooting down my hopes doc! 😉

However! He went above and beyond and called a Reproductive Endocrinologist for us to find out more info. So we have a referral and a scheduled test! (The one where they inject the dye to see if there are any blockages. I can’t remember what it’s called. Which apparently you only need if you’ve previously slept with boys. Stupid boys… 🙂 )

I started the Clomid today, and I am so excited! Trying not to get my hopes up too high, but I’m just so happy we’re finally DOING something other than the “wait and see”. I have a feeling this one will be the longest two week wait yet!

    Glad you started the Clomid! Even if you are having regular periods it still changes things up a little bit. It facilitates ovulation and can help more eggs to produce which increases your chances of getting pregnant. The Clomid also gives you a gauranteed ovulation date….it was like clock work exactly 7 days after the last day I took the Clomid. Thinking of you two and wishing you the best!

  2. Hi there, Just started a blog for the same reason as you (wanting to connect with others on the lesbian ttc journey!) and wanted to stop by and wish you luck for this month. My partner and I have just got our first referal to a fertility clinic so going blog reading crazy while we wait until the end of this month to see the doctor for the first time!
