Post-surgical update

I had my 2 week past surgery appointment.

And the only freaking thing I talked about was the medication protocol he put me on! I had a big list of questions (ie: will i have a higher risk of m/c now? If I conceive, will I be consider high risk for my pregnancy? etc) but I'll just fax them to the nurse tomorrow and see if she can get him to answer them for me. I can't believe I just ~forgot~ to ask!

Anywho, I'm 2 weeks past surgery. I have to take the estrogen for a total of 4 weeks, so only 2 more weeks. Then, in another week, I have to start progesterone for 12 days, which will overlap the estrogen for 1 week. He said I will probably cycle on my own when the estrogen stops, but it may take a few days to a week after the progesterone is finished, which anyone who is familiar with provera knows. Upon getting AF, that marks cd1 of C11 and I get to TTC again! Yay! So, this is good.

From LMP to induced cd1, it should be around 6-7 weeks. Not quite the 2 month break that I was expecting, so it's great that the best case scenario is what I'm getting. Amazing. It's weird to keep getting ~good~ news in the ttc department. Now all I need is the best case scenario of a BFP to round it all out! Okay, I'm getting ahead of myself.

I plan to take C11 as a natural cycle and not start any procedures just yet. I have NO IDEA what will happen. Will I even ovulate without growing a cyst? I hadn't been able to do that before without triggering ovulation. So we'll see. I have some hope that I'll have a normal cycle, but I'm not basing that upon anything. I sure hope I can finally be normal again.
