Side Note

Does anyone else find it funny that my cycle has stretched on long enough to confuse my MedHelp widget?

It's CD 64, if you were curious.

Ramadan and New Treatments

Ramadan Mubarak! :) This week signaled the beginning of Ramadan,which is a pretty big deal in Islam. It's been a week filled with with food, fasting, friends, oh, and the infertility clinic.

I had my post-op appointment on Tuesday, and it went okay. The doctor told me that I healed beautifully, and that that could not have gone better. She discussed what happened in the surgery a little more. Apparently it was a congenital hydrosalpinx which was all twisty and such. So, that's gone and things should be perfectly back on track. Well, kinda. The doctors in the team have decided that it's on our best interest to move on to IVF. The only issue is that the hospital I would have to go to in order to use my insurance is not able to see us until January. The doctor said that this would give us time to start figuring out how to pay. They also decided that we should try Femara IUIs in the mean time. She said there isn't any reason for them not to work, otherwise it wouldn't be suggested. So, I'm crossing my fingers, yet again.

Right now I'm on Provera to induce my cycle, and then I will start taking 7.5 mg of Femara on cd 3-7. Has anyone else used Femara? What were your thoughts?
