Actually, not really. Not yet. The only problem is that I had to take it in the first place!

I called my head nurse today, a week since getting my blood pregnancy test done. She must not have my folder when she talks to me on the phone because she can’t seem to remember anything. For example, “Did your husband have his semen analysis done yet?” Yes. Results were good – “outstanding” even. She said, “Outstanding?” with a laugh. Yes – YOU were the one who told me that! Then she said, did the doctor ask for blood work during the cycle? I said no – just that I’d start Clomid at the next cycle. “Okay,” she said, “but he didn’t write any of that down.” Now, just so everyone knows, this doctor and the others in his office come very highly recommended. I know many people that have used him, and with success. Apparently they just don’t write things down.

Anyway, finally, FINALLY I was given a prescription for Provera to jump-start my period. Of course, when I went to CVS an hour and a half later to pick it up, the good people at CVS hadn’t realized the prescription was left on their voicemail and I had to sit in the parking lot for 15 minutes while they filled it. Oh well. Tonight, I take my first pill. I’ve been through Provera before – it kicks my testosterone into overdrive, complete with hair above my lip that actually needs tweezing, and enough acne to make me feel like a 13-year old. But other than that it’s fine.

10 days of Provera + 2ish days until my period comes + 3 days into my new cycle = 15 days until my first day of Clomid!!! Woohoo! So let’s see – that’ll be around December 28th, as long as my period comes when I think it might. Merry Xmas to me.

    Yay for a fresh cycle! I HATED Provera and now refuse to take it. I have heard good things about Prometrium, though. I have not personally used it due to my peanut allergy, but it is supposed to produce fewer side effects. I use Crinone and while the mess it makes in le’ panties is less than awesome, its side effects are not bad. You might want to ask to try a different type if you need another round, but hopefully you will get lucky right out of the gate!

    Thanks Belle! You know, I’ve only taken Provera one other time, last cycle, and other than the acne and other testosterone side effects, it was fine. I’m curious to know – what were your side effects? They must have been severe enough for you to look for something different!
