An unfortunate update. My nurse called me back and I started asking her some of the questions I had about estrogen/testosterone priming and when we would need to begin. In the process, we uncovered that in fact I can't actually cycle in November because in order to do that I would have to have my Day 3 blood work and HSG done before my next cycle begins. Since I'm already on Day 12 of this cycle, that's clearly impossible.
We might be able to get away with not doing the HSG yet since I only need that pre-transfer, but definitely not the day 3 bloodwork. Argh.
I asked her to check with Dr. S just in case he was okay with assigning a priming protocol w/out day 3 bloodwork, but I'm highly doubtful he'll say yes. So looks like we're going to be waiting until January after all.
Meh. Not a tragedy, but meh.
