dear clomid

Dear Clomid,

A lot of my blog buddies have been writing you letters lately. But the reason for my letter is a little different. You see, I'm writing to break up with you.

Now, you may think I didn't give you a chance, but I did. In two months, you produced one "okay" follicle and one really strange looking follicle and gave me no baby. Then, during the next month, you gave me one ginormous follicle and didn't give the other one a chance in hell to catch up. You've thined my lining so badly that I have to stick estrogen pills up my cooter and argue with Wal-Mart pharmacy techs about it. And because of the estrogen pills, half of my panties are stained blue. Happy yet?

Oh, and not to mention the chronic ovary pain. As if it wasn't bad enough to have constant pain in my left ovary before I started taking you, now I have pain in BOTH because of your STUPID CYSTS. Thanks for making my ovaries feel like they could burst at any moment.

You are a complete bastard and I've just had enough. I think my new relationship with Femara will be a better one and, if not, then there are plenty of other fish in the sea. But I know one thing for sure: there will be no Clomid babies in this household.

Yours truly,

Katie

Good for you! Doesn't telling off Clomid feel so good?

Good luck with Femara! :)

Good luck with the Femara; I did much better with it when I took it at night. It made me feel much crappier than the Clomid--just sick in general, but when I switched it to PM, I did a little better. Hopefully you will tolerate it better than I did! I definitely doesn't have the thinning effects on the lining.

Yay I'm glad you broke up with that hoe! Good luck with Femara!

I also moved on to Femara after Clomid failed me (but discovered mid-cycle that we have severe MFI and hence the BFN from that one). I found it much easier emotionally than clomid, so hopefully it works better for you in every way!

Jessica said...

I don't know why I haven't broken up with the b*tch already. What am I thinking with 7 tries? I'm obviously hard headed!!

Good luck with the Femara! Yea for Novartis Pharmaceuticals. (Little plug there since my SIL works for them).

Ugh, sweetie. I totally agree. And, I'm SO sorry. I HATE HATE HATE HATE Clomid. It gave me SO much pain and craziness and giant cysts and a non-existent lining. Femara was much easier for me - I was a little on the hyperactive side, but it went away more quickly and didn't cause so much pain. I've yet to see if it worked, but I will never go back to Clomid!!

There are definitely other fish in the sea! :) I hope femera is a much better partner-in-making-babies!!

I am sorry that you had those side effects. But your "love letter" to clomid made me chuckle. Your a funny girl miss thing. I hope that the mew meds work better for you and you get a better end result!!!

Tina said...

Good luck with Femara. I really hope that it works better than Clomid!

Katie said...

Good for you! Good luck with your NEW relationship!
