Heartland Visit #2

Today we had our second appointment at Heartland. It was pretty uneventful. He told us it looks like the Clomid is working, and that he wants us to try it for three more months. (UGH) But he did add in prednisone, which I have never heard of using for fertility before, so at least we are trying something different. I did a bit of reading and it said that it helps a fertilized egg to implant into the uterus. It also helps reduce the amount of androgen (male hormones) in my system, which is a result of PCOS. If we are not pregnant by the end of the three more months, we will move onto something else. He didn't say anything about surgery this time, thank goodness, but he did say we would move on to an IUI.

I asked him about Femara and he said he only uses it if Clomid is not working for someone. And since Clomid is working for me, there is no reason to use Femara. He said it doesn't work any better than Clomid anyways.

SO.... I am not entirely dissapointed. I am glad to be adding in something else. I am in the middle of a TWW right now, and I am incredibly hopeful that this is our cycle. I guess we will see in a few weeks!
