Jeff and I went to see a new doctor today. I'll call him Dr. Arrow, since he drew arrows on his notes the entire visit. By the time we left, his papers looked like a football play book. We kind of felt like he thought we were there just because we are impatient, but I think he realized we had some valid reasons after talking with us. He was very thorough and answered all of our questions, which was nice.
Basically, he was appalled that Dr. Wiz wanted to do injectables. Dr. Arrow didn't even like the he put me on Clo.mid. He said that one cycle (our first) of no meds and not ovulating was not enough to put me on meds. He said sometimes that happens, and that the Clo.mid was a premature step. He thinks we should do a few unmedicated cycles, just me and the sp.erm.
Now, I am sort of at a loss of what to do. I am 3 days in to 150mg of Clo.mid, and have already paid for our IUI cycle at Dr. Wiz's office. Do we cancel the cycle now, and get half our money back, or go ahead and finish out the cycle? According to Dr. Arrow, 150mg of Clo.mid is actually hurting my chances, since he says I shouldn't be on it anyway. I have no idea. Jeff is all for cancelling the cycle, but I feel like I should go ahead and finish the Clo.mid and have the sonogram to check for follicles. He has a good point, in that if we cancel after that, it takes another $200 from our refund. But I figure that if the Clo.mid is working and we cancel it, we lose our chance this cycle. I hate seeing wasted months.
Dr. Arrow did say something interesting today that kind of threw me for a loop. He said "Just to be clear, you've been trying for 21 months, but have really only had 1 opportunity to get pregnant?" He's right. We've had one cycle where we had both eggs and sp.erm. That thought really sucks.
In other news, I just finished the new Lynn Kurland book. If you've never read one of her books, go get one. Don't read them in public though. People look at you weird when you laugh out loud or spontaneously start crying.
