Why does it have to be so hard.

So as you all know, today was my monitoring appt for my second cycle. It doesn't look good. So far, everything is the same as it was last time. I have one follicle and it's measuring 14mm. I go back in on Saturday to confirm what I already know, I'm out again this cycle. This really sucks. There is a possibility that things may work out after all but my hope for this cycle is at an all time low. I guess if this cycle is a bust again it'll be more provera and a bigger Clomid dosage. When does it get easier? Rhetorical question folks, I know for some of us it never does.

So I'm having a pity party, gifts are not necessary but comments are welcomed and encouraged.

Hope everyone else is doing well.

    Shit. One follice? Get with it, PJ's ovaries!

    I'll bring chocolate. Dove chocolate.

    I'm so sorry. You know, I have no freaking clue why this crap has to be so hard. No clue whatsoever.

    Add me to the list - I'm so sorry. I just wish it didn't have to be this way for any of us. I'm hoping that your next visit brings much happier news.

    I'm so sorry. Clomid never worked very well for me, either. Hang in there. Can you talk to the doctor about trying something new next time?

    I'm sorry too. Clomid never did anything for me, either.

    Not to be a downer, but Clomid didn't work for me either. The good news is though, you always have other options (at least I think its good news). I didn't think 14mm was all that bad though?

    Hang in there! It does get easier eventually (or at least I'm told).

    I think there's a limit as to how much clomid you want to do in a row. You might want to google it.

    HOWEVER, don't forget, it only takes one egg...

    But, if this cycle doesn't work out, can you move up to IUI w/ injectibles? It's really not that hard to do after the second day.

    PJ,
    I'm bummed for you that Clomid's not working the way you want it to. You're not alone; it didn't get me a BFP either.
    Still, I think 14cm is not a total loss, and I will be hoping for you.

    I have no answers for why this has to be so damn hard. Let's ask the Magic 8 Ball.

    Good luck, girlie.
    -D.

    No results from Clomid for me either and we tried many cycles at different doses (and I also have PCOS). Gonal-F injections were my miracle-worked on the second cycle and now I have twins. Talk to your dr about options :) Thinking of you and wishing you much luck and a BFP!

    Sorry it's not working so well. But, like people say - it just takes one. I got pregnant with just one clomid egg.

    If you're not happy with clomid, I would ask your doc when s/he will think about moving on to an injectable cycle.

    Wishing you the best!

    You cannot have a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant.
