Never happened to me before. Dr. T started me on Femara today and I go back Friday, to see if anything is happening. Only thing I can think of is that I took acu herbs for about 9 days before my US. Nothing else different. Needless to say, I think I'm done with acu herbs. Also going to stop most supplements, except BA and inositol and melatonin, I'm thinking. Very unhappy and thinking this is almost the end of the road for me and really wondering if I should start adoption process, but very hesitant. UGH. I know some will want to give me a pep talk, and Alli had triplets with zero AFC, but she was 30 guys... come on, it's not the same.. (((((. Oh, and my bday is in 19 days. Not happy.

and having your next step(S) lined up in this game.
We did the full adoption prep while we were thought we were just gathering information and deciding our next steps and before we knew it we had been picked and the baby was due.
That scenario ended disastrously, but that was just terrible luck on our parts. But what it did do for me was open up my mind and my heart to find my baby. (I have a 9month old DD via DE now who just blows me away with joy...).
My fave book on my decision making process was called "Be My Baby", by Gail Kinn.
I know only too well how gruelling such news as 'there are no follies, sorry', can be.
And you've been working so hard for so long to make your baby, as I had.
As intelligent beings we can only take so much of one experiment before we must move onto a new way to stay sane. We all have different lengths of rope, and different timeframes of what we can endure.
Only you will know when you need to try something new.
The godsend is that there are other options available to us.
I"m sorry you've had this news.
Hang in there.

and then ones with many follies after. I can never predict which way a cycle can go. So, I wouldn't say this is the end for you. In terms of looking at other options, I think that is always a good idea as Lauranz said below, just for our sanity. Choices are good! Oh and I hear ya on the Birthdays! Mine is tomorrow and I'm totally being on the down low about it! B'days have become real downers while on this journey! Oh and as an aside, co-worker who is pg. knows my B'day is tomorrow.....so why did she have to grab me on the way out to drop that bomb on me! ugh!

I'm so sorry BD - do your best to hang in there til Friday until you go back in and remember, next cycle could be much different. Wondering if anything could have suppressed you? Maybe with your shorter cycle this month your body needs one cycle break to get back "in the groove"? We're all cheering for you. SMRC

I had the day off today, so that was great! I usually did get at least one follicle eventually......would just have a stall at the beginning and then finally O. I have had a few annovulatory cycles where follicles just wouldn't grow. I usually bounced back the following cycles.
