My last post about pregnanct attempt was on May.. so this is the end of august..lots of things happen and it is hard for me to put it all here..ok here goes..
after 1st attempt of clomid and injection failed, we try to make another appointment with lppkn. however, my doctor was not around for the whole week! so no treatment can be done with her that cycle. me and husband was so frustrated as it is crucial to follow your cycle day in order to start treatment. for not wasting any time, we decided to switch doctor. and after consulting few friends, we choose Dr Adilah Ahmat from Pantai Medical Centre, Bangsar. Making appointment with her is easy. just call her nurse, Nurse Ida and try to pick a date that suitable for you to meet her. but it is recommended to come on the day before your ovulation date (which is day 10-12).
We are so excited at the first appointment as she is a consultant in infertility and expert in ivf! and she is pretty too! xoxo..
that appointment date we met, she reviewed all my data from lppkn and some of it she feel irrelevant and not precise. but as the test were new, she had to trust with the results. that cycle we done nothing much except she ask for blood work for vitamin D level. and the result came very frustrating. my level was very low and this can mess up with infertility. Vitamin D is crucial for development of follicle. and it is usually found on sunlight, as we muslim women seldom got enough vit D as we tend to cover ourselves more. so, doc presribe me with 1000iu vitamins D to be taken twice daily until the level reach normal value. we wait for the next cycle to start our clomid journey.
the next cycle, doctor prescribe with 100mg clomid only for 5 days. doc refuse to give along with injection as lppkn does because she wanted to see my ovary respon to clomid only first. however, that regimen for that cycle fail. no follicle were big enough for ovulation to occur. so the next cycle, doc prescribe 100mg clomid for 7 days and to start early (usually clomid start on day 3 of period, but this regimen, we start on day 2) and the result looks promising! we got 1 15mm follicle size on day 13 of period. we were so excited as this is the 1st Big follicle i had! doc said that maybe it is because of the long regimen of clomid or it is because of Vitamin D supplement that i took for almost a month!. so we wait for another 3 days for the follicle to fully grown to 18mm and above. however, after 3 days, the 15mm follicle didnt grew at all. doc assume that maybe because of the small cysts i got around my ovary that block the growth of the follicle, no space for it to grow. doc cant do much to enhance the size, so we pray for it to grow and we try to conceive naturally again that cycle.
on the next appointment, we asked her the treatment option for me as if we continue taking clomid, we still expect for the same result as no room for my follicle to grow. she said that the best option is to do ovarian drilling. this drilling will help to minimize the cysts around my both ovaries and she also can see clearly what happen inside. however we dont have any insurance covered for that surgery as it will cost about RM15-20k T_T.
but, my optimistic husband said that money does grows on tree, we can find that 20k! inshaAllah. so, for now we stop treatment for a while and focus on saving for my surgery. huhu.. sapo nk boli kete den, roger k.. ahahaha..
let's do the best and hope for a miracle to happen.
May Allah ease our journey. we need your du'a guys!
