Twofer at the gyno!

Posted on

Today I got a pleasant surprise for an infertile anovulator who constantly seeks vaginal health opinions and attention: A last minute appointment at the gyno! Not only was I able to get my annual PAP smear taken care of lickety split, I also got a fresh pack of BCPs to kick off Operation Screw It, These Ovaries Are Getting Medicated. A twofer one if you ask me!

The plan is to go on the BCPs for a month starting tomorrow, and then kick off my artificially induced hormonal “period” with some Clomid CD 3-7. I have not gotten an HSG test yet, but my gyn said that unless I have had a history of PID or chlamydia, he would recommend I wait a couple of cycles to see how I respond to Clomid. Insurance doesn’t cover my HSG unless I have a history of endo.

Stand back, ovaries. I have a prescription for 50mgs of Clomid in my hand right now, and I’m not afraid to use it.

All in all, aside from needing meds to do what most women can do in a few months of drunk horney boinking, today felt like a good day for fertility overall. It feels nice to finally feel like I’m going to be jump starting something. I don’t know what it is exactly…but at least it’s something.

About Sunny

I'm a happily married, 31 year old gal who is just starting her journey to conceive. I also have ovaries that may need a jump start. This blog is an attempt to channel my obsessive research on my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome into something a pregnancy test. That would be awesome. I also hope that other women with this condition will find support in this blog. There are a lot of us out here! Happy reading, whatever your journey may be.

  1. Woo hoo for a new plan! Congrats girl!

  2. Hey-that’s wonderful!! Congrats on getting things moving! As someone who also did not ovulate prior to clomid, I’ll be interested to see how your body reacts to it! And your comment on my blog totally put things in perspective..i suppose occasional ovulations are better than none! Thank you for that reminder 🙂

  3. You last paragraph just cracked me up! Ain’t it the truth? 🙂

    I have been feeling lately like my cycles immediately following a progesterone induced period are the best ones. Good call!

  4. Sometimes it just feels good to get the pipes moving again! Let’s go Oves!
