It is SO worth it. I’m hoping for you that you don’t have to try for anywhere close to 20 months though. It was hard, but I would do it again in a heartbeat. My doctor only prescribed 4 months worth of it for me. After my last pill,  I called to see if he would refill the prescription. He said no, and that he would refer me to a specialist instead (I was just seeing my obgyn). So he put in a request and told me it could take about a year for me to get an appointment with a specialist (I live in Canada in a place with very few specialists). I was heartbroken. The day before my bfp, I had a complete meltdown and cried all day. The next day after work, I decided to buy a test and get the bfn out of the way and research IUI’S. When I saw that second line pop up, it was pure shock.

soontobemrsKB92615:  we had 5 larger follicles, my RE was on the verge of cancelling us. We had one at 18 mm and four between 12 and 17 mm and then a whole bunch under 12 mm! We had already decided we were ok with multiples so he said as long as we are comfortable with the fact we would most likely have multiples we could go ahead! Our 2 boys are due in 7 weeks and we couldn’t be happier. Although pregnancy with multiples is really hard (I went off work at 26 weeks and spend most of my days in bed) it is so worth it!

soontobemrsKB92615:  You’re so lucky that you didn’t have problems with the referral! There’s only 1 specialist in my area, unless I wanted to drive 1.5 hours each way. That could be why. At one point, I was considering the drive, but it would have been difficult with work. I really hope Letrozole is the difference you need. From my research, it usually happens within the first 3 cycles. 😊
