Started Stims

Did you know that it is okay to start stims even if you never got a period? Apparently they just check to make sure your lining is thin enough before giving the green light. In fact, the RN told me that it happens pretty regularly!

Sure wish someone had told me that because I almost passed out in the mall, so giddy with relief I was to find out that we can move forward. (I actually had to sit down with my head between my knees! Mind you, I didn't get the call until 2pm... and I'd been worrying myself sick all morning. I was convinced I'd have to postpone this cycle.)

So last night, 75 of Gonal-f and this morning was my first ever shot of Menapur. Does that Q-Cap thingie really make it easier for you guys?? It seemed to be more difficult than a needle to me... Of course, I freaked out a little when I couldn't get the damn thing off the vial of fluid! In the end, I think it worked out alright. I go back in Tuesday.

I'm just really hoping that the third time's the charm.


  1. Yikes, I'm sorry you had to worry all morning for nothing! So glad you got the green light to start though :) I'll be rooting for you!

  2. Yay! So glad you were able to begin stims! I'm really looking forward to this cycle! =)

  3. YAY for getting started! Good luck. I HATE the Qcaps too. You are not alone!

  4. Yep, I've stimmed w/o a period. I dont naturally produce enough estro/prog for a period or lining so they only thing that lets me ovulate are the drugs (and my only bleeding for the last 4y has been after m/c or pregnancy).

    GOOD LUCK!!!

  5. BEST OF LUCK!!!! Praying for you this cycle ((HUGS))
