PinkB - can well understand that you're feeling a little apprehensive about your upcoming cycle. To balance things, can I be a bit excited on your behalf that the DHEA WILL have worked its magic? Looking forward to hearing some fantastic results for you as the cycle gets underway

tryingfortwo - have you started jabbing yet sweetie? Have everything crossed that this is the cycle for you. And sorry - only just noticed your PM tonight. Will reply separately to that.
AFM - FS confirmed yesterday that clinic policy is to wait 3 months until stimming again. We've decided that the best thing to do is try two IUI cycles. FS had recommended last year doing 3 but we only did one then decided to cut to the chase with ICSI. The ICSI cycle has given us more information about the quality of my eggs (OK) and on the basis of that, and given we'd just be waiting around anyway, think it's worth giving IUI a go in the meantime. So we can get underway when my next AF arrives. Do any of you lovely ladies have any advice on what type of vitamins/supplements (other than folic acid) I could be taking to increase chances, bearing in mind I have no real known fertility problems? Thinking I should perhaps get some advice from a TCM specialist.
