lies, damn lies, and ovulations

Good thing I was thinking about getting ready to go back to the clinic, because back to it I am going. Probably tomorrow.

My temperature took a dive back to normal pre-o levels, so I either had a feeble 5 day LP (unlikely) or my impending ovulation failed to materialize (expected, in fact, predictable), or this is a mid-LP estrogen surge (possible?).  I have NO idea what is going on, so I’ve called my RE, and will probably have to go back for another ultrasound and blood work.  I think I could just get estrogen and progesterone monitored and define if (ha) I have ovulated or if there is something in there working on popping, but I know my RE, and an ultrasound will be ground zero.  Annoying financially, but whatever, I’m annoyed already.

Arg!  This game, the did-I-or-didn’t-I game of marginal temperature rises and fluctuating CM.  This game I did not miss.

ETA: I have toddled off and gotten blood drawn for progesterone and estradiol, as per my doctor’s choice.  I’m surprised I don’t have to go in for an ultrasound immediately, but I’m pleased since this is the free option for getting some more information.  Should have results by late today, early tomorrow, so we shall see.

    Ugh. That sucks so much. It is the only good thing about being so PCOS that I will never, ever ovulate on my own- at least I never had to monitor cycles.

    Oh, that is annoying. Thank goodness for modern medicine though, in providing some clarity when our bodies wind us up!! Hoping you’ll get some satisfactory answers tomorrow.xx

      It is nice to have a crystal ball now, to accurately see what’s going on! The year I spent hoping to ovulate was awful: so much suspended belief!
      You are in a rest cycle this month, right? I hope it is giving you time to enjoy the things around you that are not medically relevant!
