July 2014 – Stop taking Metformin because it’s causing my liver function to elevate.  Joe gets an SA to rule him out as a factor.  His numbers were 4.1ml and 869.2 million.  So happy we don’t have that to worry about!

November 2014 – Stack 150mg Clomid with the previous round. No mature follicles. Failed Clomid cycle.

December 2014 – Meet with RE for another consult.  Options are injections or IVF.  Decide to try injections but not starting until January.  On break for the month.

January 2015 – Bravelle injections. Stim for 3 1/2 weeks. Increase from 75iu to 225iu. No mature follicles. Largest is 10mm and estrogen never gets above 100. Cancelled cycle. Start making plans for IVF next month.
