Response to Not a bad idea at all
I definitely think it would be quite disheartening to keep taking the meds if I got a negative p/t. I am very committed to taking the meds now, and although I know I would take them because I would have to (and yes there have been some false negatives), I believe I would do it grudgingly. Now I do it willingly. Okay, we all know they are not fun, but I know what our goal is, so not taking the shots is not an option.
I too am not a person who has highs or lows during this process. Don't get me wrong. I am believing the best, and I am an optimist with a realistic flare. Although I can be an emotional person, when I am finally put in a situation, I tend to deal with what is and make decisions from there.
I LOVE the ladies who do POAS. I think that it is incredibly brave and and I think it does give some sense of control over how and when you get the information. But because there are so many variables when it comes to getting an accurate test (time of day, number of days past transfer, type of test, human error in testing, etc) I just don't see myself doing it. After the beta, I might...but knowing me, I doubt it.
Now as I'm saying all of this, keep in mind that this is my first round of IVF ever, so who knows - if there is a down the road - what I might do.
