Yes, AF showed up this weekend. Saturday morning to be exact. Unfortunately, that wasn't the worst of my weekend.
It all started on Friday. I decided to be proactive and call the RE nurses to see if I needed to do anything prior to starting the gonadatropins, particularly if I started my cycle this weekend. So, I left a voicemail and they called back.
This is when she told me that I would need to take a training on injections and that the only give the training 1-2 times per week and only 1-2 couples per training. We were number 18 on the wait list, so if we were lucky we'd be able to get training in within a month, but most likely not for a couple months.
Needless to say, I was stunned. No one had mentioned any type of training particularly with a wait list. Had I known, I would've called 2 months ago and been put on the wait list. I even asked the RE at our last appointment if there was anything else that I needed to do before the gonadatropin cycle, in case this cycle of femara didn't work out. She said all I needed to do was sign a consent form which states you understand the side effects of the gonadatropins.
I emailed my RE and asked her why she didn't tell me about the training and why I'll have to wait probably another 2 cycles before starting the gonadatropins. She emailed back that I shouldn't have to wait that long and to let her know when the first day of my cycle is. I replied back and so far no answer.
Now I'm waiting for an email back for the RE and a phone call back from the nurses because if I can't start the gonadatropins, at least I want to start the femara and today is CD3. This is BS to the umpteenth degree. Just give me the damn meds.
Do genes matter?
