Another Cycle...

AF arrived yesterday for me, but I am surprisingly not too down about it.  I'm feeling more numb than anything.  And anxious.  I feel like there are so many decisions to be made right now about treatments that it is kind of overwhelming.

I think as of now we are on track for a Femara cycle with IUI... our first IUI.  I'm feeling kind of ambivalent about it.  We will do that for 2 or 3 cycles, take a month or two off if I feel like I need it, and then dive into injectables with IUI.  Come on, something, WORK!!!

I also decided to start acupuncture.  I'd been thinking about it for a while, and took the plunge last week.  The session was kind of relaxing, but afterwards I felt tired and out of it for a while.  Nothing too bad, though.  My period arrived with less cramps than usual and with more of a normal red flow (which I think is better than my usual super light, spotty flow).  I was telling my husband that in the 2 years I've been off the pill, I have never gotten through CD1 with this few ibuprofen.  Maybe the acupuncture is already doing its job!

I hope the acupuncture continues to be helpful for you. I hope this cycle goes well, too. I know what you mean about anxiety over multiple decisions about treatment. Good luck!

Ive had periods of ambivalence also, I think it is our subconcious way of protecting itself. Take it easy, enjoy the good things and be ready for the next rollercoaster ride. x

Were cycle buddies. AF showed her face at my house last night also and I'll be doing my second IUI this cycle. Best of luck and I'll pray you end up only needing this one IUI.
