And the Results are In

HSG was a normal study

TSH is normal

I am immune to reubella (I am not sure why they test for this)

I have to wait to hear from the the Doc about my LH/FSH results. The nurse wasn't sure what they are supposed to be and didn't want to tell me if they are normal or not. I should have said are they a 1:1 ratio? That's normal if not, then no it's not normal. But apparently the Doctor will call me today. Yeah, I am not holding my breath for her phone call.

Still getting negative OPKs (shocking right???) Today is CD 16- if I ovulate this month it will be a surprise. I'll keep taking them though until I get to CD 35 and then I am calling the doc for more provera. In the meantime I've amassed a lot of pee sticks on my night table. They all look exactly the same, they aren't getting darker or lighter. I honestly think I don't even need to hear the results of my LH/FSH tests--clearly my LH is HIGH otherwise I wouldn't see anything on these tests. Bleh

The best I can hope for at this moment is to talk with the doctor about it. My guess is she wants to do clomid which, I think, is a mistake and a waste of time and money. I personally would rather go to something else like Femera which I hear works much better on PCOS folks than Clomid does. I am nervous about doing any kind of injectable treatment because it can cause ovarian hyperstimulation in PCOS patients, cause multiples (not that I care about that) but worse it can cause nasty cysts which are painful and require the pill to treat. Thanks, but I'll pass on all that.

As for Ray, his results are in already too but he's waiting to see the Doctor before getting them (on the 27th). I am really hoping that these results are much better than the last results we got. If not I think he'll be scheduled for an ultrasound to see if he has a severely twisted vein in his scrotum. I don't think so, it's probably all the mountain dew, bike riding and tight underwear he wears LOL. I think we'll try and treat with supplements rather than surgery if the vein isn't really impeding him. Only the Uro will be able to tell him that.

That's all from here. As soon as I have the other results I'll update again.

Reubella is extremely dangerous to a fetus if you were to contract it during pregnancy - if you weren't immune, they'd suggest vaccinations.

Femara can be a bitch to get by insurance for off-label purposes, because it's an expensive drug. I used it (for suppression, not stimulation), and insurance was not pleased.
