Preparing for next time

OK, I am trying to stay positive, but I am a planner and want to be prepared in case it doesn't. I need advice on how to handle back to back cycles. My RE is fine with it, assuming the CD3 baseline is fine. But I am wondering if I have enough meeds. Right now I have 3 vials. This cycle I started at 1 vial each night and moved up to 1.5 vials each night. Assuming I don't start at more than 1.5vials, then I have enough to get to day 5, which should be long enough to buy more meds.

Of course, there is also the issue of whether we will do a back to back cycle anyway. According to my best calculations, the IUI would most likely happen the week my mom is in town to visit. We are purposefully not telling my mom about our treatment because she creates too much stress for me. She would sit in the room during the IUI if I let her and tell the doctor what to do. I am not taking time off work, so I should be able to go to appointments without her knowing. And since we have a spare bathroom, I can probably hide most supplies from her. The tricky part will be to hide the ovidre1 in the fridge. We will have to hide it pretty well because she is not shy about rummaging through our kitchen to find something.

November is not an option for us due to travel. And then the holidays will make our scheduling even harder. So if this cycle doesn't work and we skip next cycle, we are looking at a break until next year. Hopefully this is a moot point anyway.


  1. I definitely hope this is a moot point but if you do end up doing back to back cycles have you thought about putting the one medicine which belongs in the fridge in a container for something else which she wouldn't likely touch?

  2. I hope that this cycle works for you, and you don't have to worry about the rest of it. I don't know what to tell you about hiding stuff in the fridge... but I hope that you don't end up on break until next you if you don't want to.
