I’m not too heartbroken because we got a grade 2 embryo last month. So now we have two.
I am anxious about whether if I ever do get pregnant my adenomyosis will allow me to take the child to term. Very anxious. Anxious to the point that I have scoured forums for success stories of women having children despite severe adenomyosis. The prognosis on a lot them is not as comforting as I wish. Many did have children, but their children were often born early. Not one of them was able to take their babies to the full eight weeks.
However, surrogacy is illegal in Japan so we have to risk it next time we try again.
As for this cycle, apparently it’s a bust. My E2 is over 250 on Day 5. I wonder if I really went through a true period when I bled.
They extracted an egg that divided into an embryo. From what I saw on the ultrasound the follicle it came out of looked very solid — round, good shape, and thick walls. Did it not produce enough proesterogene to suppress a new follicle from growing?
Apparently, it did not.
I matured a new follicle. I have been noticing pain in my right ovary for days, but I kept thinking, ‘nah, can’t be. I’m in the luteal phase’. Wrong.
A follicle did grow, but it’s really likely to be bad quality since it grew not long after the other guy got taken out. I think I have a proesterogene problem. (In fact, I can’t even spell that word).
So they want to skip this cycle and wait for my cycle to return to normal.
The doctor assured me that these things happened, especially in women over thirty. (Thanks, doc )
So who knows what will happen this month with a wily follicle that grew out of turn because my hormones failed to suppress it in the luteal phase. And the little jerk is hurting my right side.
I imagine I’m going to have a super short cycle if this one ovulates. I just hope it doesn’t turn into a cyst. Those things can take a couple months to go away.
Here’s hope the next cycle is a go.
