Trying to be positive

I have been trying to stay calm and collected about everything, but this morning I started to get concerned that I hadn't gotten AF yet. I started lupron on day 21 of my cycle (13 days ago).  Last time around the nurse told me I would get my period within 7-10 days of starting. Still no signs of AF.

It just happened the nurse from my clinic called me this afternoon to change my appointment time for Friday. I used it as an opportunity to ask her about getting my period and whether that was necessary to start stims. She asked if I regularly get my period and I told her I do. She then proceeded to tell me I should have gotten it by now and that there might be something wrong. She asked if I could be pregnant (I took a test and am not) or said I may have a cyst. I am so worried about having a cyst (especially with my lovely cyst history), and am having a hard time staying positive. 

At this point I am just trying to make it until Friday at 9:30 for my appointment. The good news is that my RE will be doing the scan rather than the regular sonographer. I will be able to get answers at the time of the scan which will be good. The bad news is he is not as gentle with "wandy". 

I am really hoping AF shows by Friday or sometime close to that time and that I can still do IVF this month. I am really hoping I don't get my cycle cancelled before I ever really start. I am so frustrated that I don't seem to be able to get past the lupron stage of IVF. Please send some positive thoughts my way. I am trying to stay positive, but it is getting difficult. 


  1. i hope she shows up soon and that it's not a cyst! good luck at your appt! i hope this cycle goes more smoothly from here on out.

  2. Positive thoughts heading east! Good luck. Let us know how this works out. I've had cysts and it sucks; however, sometimes its nice to have a month off from this stuff.

    Wishing you all the best.

  3. ***positive thoughts...positive thoughts***

    come onnnnnn AF!!

  4. The same thing happened to me. AF was two weeks late from when they told me she should show up after stopping BCP etc... Everything turned out fine for me, I was just starting much later than planned which ended up interfering with a vacation that we had planned. I had originally wanted to be on vacation during my 2WW but I ended up being on stims while I was walking around Spain...not fun. I hope it is no big deal for you. Hopefully she is just being stubborn like mine was. I will be prying for no cysts for you!

  5. I'm sending all my positive thoughts your way. I really really hope it's just a little delayed, and there's no cyst. You deserve to continue with this..fingers crossed for you xo
