Tomorrow, R and I have an appointment with our doctor to discuss what happens next and to go over our options. We're lucky because we'll see Dr. A at 4:00 and she has nothing scheduled after that, so we'll have plenty of time to really talk. I'm so nervous to hear what she'll say, but I'm also excited and eager to get as much information as we can! (In case no one noticed, R and I like to be informed.) Also, we really like the staff at our clinic and we really enjoy seeing everyone.

Some of the questions we plan to ask:

  1. the benefits of Letrozole vs. Clomid?

  2. are there any drug combinations that work well in combination with Letrozole?

  3. should we use injectables instead? is that something Dr. A would be willing to do/monitor?

  4. how many more rounds of IUI before seeking out IVF?

  5. how many follicles would Dr. A like to see?

  6. nutrition/supplements? foods to avoid?

These are all I can think of off the top of my head, but I'm sure I'll come up with more. R will have plenty to say, too, I am sure! Is there anything else we're obviously missing??

If your doc is willing to do IUI with injectables, ask how many follicles is TOO many, and if they are willing to convert to an IVF cycle at that point if you are interested. My doc would cancel an IUI with injectables if there were more than 4 follicles.

Nothing i can think of off the top of my head, but good luck! This is an awesome next step, and will probably clear up some confusion you've been having about "what next?"
