Setback.

March 12th, 2012.  CD4.

So I had my cycle day 3 blood work and ultrasound this morning (a day late, I know), and the news is not great.

I have a few leftover follicles from last cycle hanging out that never resolved, and they seem to be causing elevated Estradiol (E2) levels.  The study guidelines won’t allow a participant to move forward if their level is above the mid-90s, and I am at 128.

Ugh.

This means that I cannot have a medicated cycle or IUI this month, and that I can basically sit on my hands until Aunt Flo shows her ugly face again.

The only good thing about this is that I think this is the nail in the Clomid coffin.  I never had these types of reactions to meds when I was taking Femara, and thus I assume my mystery meds are the evil Clomid.

Boo… you whore.

    Ick! This sucks! I’m frustrated for you. Any chance that leftover follie will make you ovulate on your own this month? Fingers crossed something good happens soon…either way!

    Yeah, basically I just have to wait until my next cycle starts back up and then call the clinic to start all over. So… probably at least another month. Maybe more. Just depends on what my body wants to do…

    Which, apparently isn’t much, lol. Stupid lazy follicles.
