Clomiphene Citrate Challenge Test (CCCT)

WOW!!!  Big words and yet another test that must be done before we can proceed with IVF.  Actually, its the last test that needs to be done before we get started (with the exception of our psych evaluation- uh oh).  This test is going to measure your Mom's ability to produce eggs.  Up until this point most of the testing and numbers have depended on your Dad- and I've pretty much been ignored.  Now its my turn.  Today I head to Shands (sans Dad since he has a fertilizer bill up that he needs to testify on) for blood work and other work to measure hormone levels.  Tomorrow I will start some mild hormones and stay on those for 5 days.  Then next week head back to Shands to see if my levels are acceptable.  No one seems to think it will be an issue- but I am terrified that it will be another problem that we have to deal with.  If my levels aren't correct- we will not be able to proceed with IVF and will be left with very few options to have you.  So I am praying and praying and praying that my hormones are normal.  Off to couple of meetings and then making that long drive to Shands for the CCCT
