Well, I have a plan of sorts now. I start my second set of birth control pills today and take those until March 28.
I’m also starting Metformin (glucophage) today. I’m taking that because the RE is doing everything possible to make more eggs. Last time, I had 9 follicles and 5 eggs (4 fertilized and 3 made it to a 3 day transfer). The egg quality was good, but I want to have more. I’m also taking DHEA and have been since the failed IVF stuff back in September (or maybe it was October).
I’m a little worried about metformin because I keep hearing about the “upset stomach” it can cause. I really hope that doesn’t mean I’m going to be dying with stomach cramps for the next 6 weeks. If anyone has any information about this medication, I’d love to hear it.
My calendar so far:
Now until April 1: BCP and Metformin
April 1: Start stims
April 12: Expected retrieval
So, here’s hoping that April is a lovely month for my ovaries!
ETA: I just looked at the bottle of metformin and found out I’m not supposed to have any alcohol at all while taking this. I’m glad I had that martini last night, for sure!
