New cycle with Gonal-F
Here's to another cycle! I wasn't going to go the drug treatment route but decided we would give it a go for 3 cycles post my hsg dye test as that is our best chance. So this is cycle 2 following that, and this month my doctor has prescribed me Gonal-F injection dose 112.5 to start from day 3 for 10 days. It stimulates the ovaries to produce more eggs each month to increase our chances. I have to pinch a roll of fat on my abdomen, set the pen to my dose 112.5, insert the needle slowly into my skin and then press the button on the pen while keeping the needle in my skin for 5-7 seconds. I do 10 secs just to be sure. Then I take the needle out without letting go of the button. Once it's completely out I let go of the button making sure that the dose has now gone back to zero.
And that's it!
I decided that this month (and next month!) is an all or nothing month so we have literally been BDing since CD6. Yes I'm absolutely knackered, and yes I'm actually getting a little bored and finding it a slight chore to be honest. But we made it to my Peak Clear Blue reading yesterday (CD10) and my ovulation pains were so strong I'm pretty sure ovulation is immenent. So great news on the BD timing! Today CD11 I had a scan to see if I've ovulated. Scan showed a follicle around 20mm so I was given a gonasi 5000 trigger shot. Doctor said it looked like I would ovulate today.
We've magaged to BD again today and will try for tomorrow CD12. I'm away on CD13 and CD14 so have to hope we've done enough this cycle to catch the egg! I start the Progesterone suppositories again from CD13 nighttime and my doctor told me to do a pregnancy test 12 days after starting the Progesterone. I'm going to test out my trigger using Clinical Guard hpt test, and hopefully we will have some good news at the end of this cycle! xx
