Scan today did not go well. I was mistaken when I said the follicle was 14mm, it was actually only 12mm and it has not grown even a little since the last scan. On top of that my lining is pretty much non-existent. They could not even measure it, it was so thin. So pretty much this cycle is done. There is no point in doing a HCG shot or IUI if the follicle is not growing and I have no lining to support a pregnancy. My regular doctor was actually not in (which I was pretty unhappy about) so I have to go back on Tuesday for a final scan and to discuss our options.
I have decided that I am also most likely seek a second opinion. My grandma has a neighbor she is close to who is a fertility doctor. She is going to talk to him and see if he would be willing to look over my file and give his opinion. I wish I could be treated by him since he has great stats and I think it is good when the doctor is a little personally invested, but they live in another state. I am concerned about my doctors refusal to consider Femara (although I am going to try to get him to reconsider on Tuesday).
I’m pretty upset but I was expecting this. I just really did not want to have to do injectables if at all possible but it looks like that is where we are headed. They scare me because I have had two different doctors tell me that based on how many follicles are on my ovaries that I will make a lot of eggs on injectables. So maybe it will get me pregnant but I am extremely nervous about multiples.
If anyone knows of a good fertility clinic in the Irvine/Southern California area please let me know. I am going to be making some phone calls and see if any other doctor can give his or her advice.
