Follow Up Doctor Appointment to BFN

Feb 10, 2011 - 4 comments

I went to the Doctor yesterday (Wednesday, February 9, 2011) for a consultation regarding my BFN. I was holding back so much not to cry in front of him, but he could see my disappointment. He said he was very disappointed as well but he's not discouraged. Now he knows what he needs to do to make this work even better. He suggested I take a few months off to recover physically and mentally. At first I said I don't want to wait but he said that it's going to be better and safer for me if I do. So now, I will take this time to take better care of myself and relax a little more.

May will be my next cycle. He will have to change my medication and up my dosage. He suggested to AVOID LUPRON altogether. He has another plan and we both have faith that it will work the second time around. I'm not a bit discouraged but still a bit sad; but I know I will get over it eventually. I'm just excited to start again but impatient to wait until May.

Well, that's all for now.

I think a break is sometimes necessary.  You've been through a lot and you do have to give yourself a break so you can come back with a great positive attitude.  May will be here before you know it!

Yes you are right. I didn't think it was alot until the doctor explained everything to me. Then i realized the break is a good thing. I'm just so anxious for May to show up, but what I need to do is just chill out and enjoy the break!

Well after having some trouble with communication and billing issues at my RE's office, I am hoping that we can get past that and move on.  The other day my surgeon actually called me to talk about it which I was surprised about.  Also on Monday we have a sit down with his associate about the very same thing.  

My surgeon asked me to consider doing another retrieval to try to get one more good embryo.  Although I really didn't think about doing anymore I'm leaning more towards going for it at this point.  I like the idea of having two more embryos to work with rather than just my one frozen one.  But I do have to get the billing and insurance issues straighten out too.  They submitted a failed cycle to my insurance company and I didn't want them to do that.  We are trying to pay for the failed cycles ourselves so we don't give up the chances of insurance paying for the successful cycles.  We've used two already and the last failed one they submitted in error (ugh) so technically that is 3 and insurance will only cover 4.  I want the last one retracted so we are waiting on that.  It annoys me because they took away one of our chances so I'm hoping this isnt going to be a problem.  

But speaking of breaks I will tell you this.  My only frozen embryo was from a cycle I had two months of rest on.  So I think it had a lot to do with it.  I didn't have any classes (I'm in college) I went on a vacation and I was stress free.  I think that is why I honestly got a good embryo.  I'm hoping since I've had a break the last few months that if I do another retrieval it will work that way again.  So that's why I say take the break, you never know!

Anyway,I'll let you know how I make out on Monday.  You relax now - you're in Florida right?  Enjoy some of that nice sunny weather, wish I could lol.  
Take care, Joann

OMG!! So much drama with all this, I'm so sorry you have to go through it. I think you should go for that one more retrival, it might turn out to be THE ONE! But yes, get that billing issue straigtened out, that's usually a pain to deal with, hopefully you wouldn't have much of a hard time. I got the plan that give me 2 IVF and 2 Frozen, but this first time I didn't have any to freeze.

I believe you are right about taking this break. I do think that it will help me out alot. I have started exercising and reading again, so that calms me and takes me away from thinking about this as much.

I really do hope it works for you this time too!  Yes, please let me know how your consult goes on Monday. My Doc said that they will do IVF in May for me, so keep me posted on you.

Yes, I'm in Florida!! So I am enjoying the nice weather ALOT  lol.
Take care and good luck, Vanessa
