To try or not to try? -WHEN is the real question!

We are gearing up start trying again. The big question is 'when?'

I'm waiting to get my cycle back with the encouragement of meds. Fingers crossed it is in late February and NOT in early March.

Timing is everything. When will CD 1 be?

I am consumed with all things 'when':

WHEN will my cycle come back?

WHEN will the provera work? -in a matters of days or will it be weeks?

WHEN will I be able to start Clomid (my first ever medicated cycle)?

WHEN will my Clomid stimulated egg(s) be at least 18mm in order to trigger?

WHEN will Clomid produce side effects? -the whole cycle or just the medicated days?

These 'when' questions are all-consuming because me and my husband will be traveling in March. Will this interfere with TTCing?

WHEN my cycle starts and how my body responds are all very important factors in determining if we will be sitting out this cycle or not. It has a lot to do with the fact that we have to be monitored via ultrasound which is especially important because it is my first go-round on Clomid.

It stinks.

I wish I had a Crystal Ball so I just knew when CD 1 will be so I can plan/discuss and decide.

Rainshower: Having to wait even longer to get started is disheartening especially since we have been at this since June, 2011.

Rainbow: The possibility of having to wait only one more cycle to start trying is a nice problem to have considering the alternative.


  1. We're in the same boat - provera, clomid, IUI. I'm on day 2 of clomid. Best of luck to you!
