love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
I had my cd3 appointment this morning and I feel really hopeful about my prognosis. She said I had a LOT of follicles which means I have a heightened risk of multiples, something I have always suspected. She said it also meant that I was susceptible to overstimulation with gonadotropins, so it was pretty likely that my last RE put me on a low dose that slowed down my egg production and delayed ovulation on purpose. All this time I was thinking that something was wrong with me bc I would only have one measely egg and was ovulating close to cd20!!
(Dammit! I’m writing this from my iPhone at stoplights and lost half of it. Let me rewrite it.)
Now I’m left wondering what the hell was going on with Dr. GAP. Did he do that on purpose? Did he just not tell me? Was he just trying to get me to give up on iui so he could rush me to ivp? WTF??
This also shows me why I felt so much anxiety about my experience there- the timing wasn’t right and that wasn’t the right practice for me. I feel REALLY good about my experience now. I’m officially dubbing my RE Dr. On-it!
