Melk: Hope you already heard the HB by now…
MRP rest up and enjoy PUPO!
Thanks everyone for so the well wishes.
StarfIsh, Scan is in 2 weeks time. No B/T between now and then required by the clinic.
PinkButterfly, what we have done differently? We had a few changes but don’t know if these actually made the difference in result. But I will do all these again if this cycle didn’t succeed.
The FS always says, “such and such have not been clinically proved to increase success rate, etc”, then we are not trying anything different? After a while, my principle is as long as it doesn’t do harm, we will try it.
Anyway, the different things I did:
I took supplements for about 7 weeks before cycling. I was on the following; I had a longer list but eventually stick to DHEA 75 a day, COQ 150 mg a day ( I read on US website that they have 800mg. I tried but feeling unwell),Fish Oil,Blackmore conceive well.
DH has always been taking Menevit but he also took COQ10 and no coffee and reduced chocolate consumption for 6-7 weeks prior to this cycle.
For cycle 4 and 5, I was on 2 crinone a day. AF came on Day 11/12. This cycle I was on 4 pregnyl shots, 2 crinone and 1 pregesterone pessary a day.
After EPU, during cycle 4 and 5, I took clexane and asprin but this time I also took predisolone, although no absolute problems detected from the investigation b/t.
My FSH in the previous 5 cycles were always around 7.5. FSH this cycle was 15.3. The number of eggs collected agreed with the high FSH. I had 4 eggs while 8-9 eggs in previous cycles. All 4 eggs are mature but only 2 fertilised. It didn’t look promising from egg side quantity wise, so maybe the scientist just happened to pick the right sperm.
