    hey starf1sh - how's it going with the jabbing? You're on 250 puregon this time? Your recent post suggested you might be feeling a bit poorly on the drugs. All OK? When is your first scan?

    I'm doing an antagonist cycle for the first time, on 175 puregon (down from 300 gonal-f on the last stim - on new FS's advice) and 150 pregnyl every second day. Will start on orgalutran tomorrow to stop ovulation. Had my first scan today (day 4 - very early!) and not surprisingly just a bunch of <10mm follies, with one larger one. Next scan and bloods on Thursday. At this stage of the cycle feeling pretty chilled with it all. So nice to have all the drug-taking compacted into a short period of time.

    Hope all's good with you. Would love to hear what the plan is for your cycle.

    Hi ladies,

    Sorry I've been MIA - plenty of action, see below...

    Starfish - you asked ages ago about long term effects of DHEA - I remember Drmummy saying that you need to monitor your cholesterol levels for a reason I can't remember. I made a mental note of that one and haven't done it myself as yet....

    Fiona and Swede - thanks for popping in - it's nice to know that life is sweet after IVF is over, regardless of the outcome, and always nice to know you still care about us all

    Melk - wow, your pregnancy has gone by so fast! Thanks for your continued support to us all too

    AFM
    - My period finally came after 2 months - basically I skipped a period. This may have been a good thing, cause my bloods on Day 1 were good for me - FSH 11 and prog 3, so they let me start on first ever short cycle. IT's a public clinic and very conservative, so my dose is meant to be 375 gonal - a joke for me! So I'm giving myself 450 from my stash in the fridge left over from my last canned cycle. I'm now day 6 and had my first scan - and DIDN'T get cancelled!!! I wanted to break out the champagne to celebrate, but was a good girl instead Back for another scan Wed....

    Mum4nay – Awesome news, will keep that champagne on ice for you!!! Good luck for Wednesday, sounds promising!!

    Starfish – how are things going? Sending positive egg growing vibes your way!!!

    Slinky – good luck for your cycle, the addition of pregnyl sounds like a good plan, seems to be more popular to do these days. Keep us posted on how you go.

    Hello cycle buddies Slinky and Mum4nay!!! So awesome to have some company!

    Slinky, yes still having headaches off and on (I blame the lucrin). Last week my acupuncturist put some press tack needles in that I wore all week and it seemed to improve but this week they are back with a vengeance. Interesting, they seem to be worse on days that I work! Thankfully I only have 3 more days at work and then I am off for almost 2 weeks

    I am trundling along with my 3 injections (lucrin, puregon and saizen) not much tenderness or tingling yet but my ovaries are just going about their business quietly! I am up to 250 this time, highest dose I have ever been on. Just curious why your new FS has put your dose down? I have also had the pregnyl injections in the stim phase before but only tiny amounts. Hope it moves things along for you.

    Great news that a few fab follies have already been sighted! Hopefully for your next scan on Thursday there will be a whole follie family! I am having a bt tomorrow and 1st scan isn't until Friday. I am tracking towards EPU for May 27th.

    Mum4nay, great to hear from you! Have you gone back to WFC for this cycle? Wooo hooo for cycle not getting canned, off to a great start Hope your follies also come out to play for scan tomorrow Let us know how you go. I also read your fab news re: ED's EPU!!! Unbelievable!

    Pink, are you joining us soon?

    hey starfish - yay for going on holidays. Great you've been able to arrange it like that. It's tough fitting a cycle in around work - sounds like you've timed things perfectly. I hope so so so much that this is the cycle for you. 3 injections/night is quite full-on isn't it? I've got 2 and 3 on alternating days. Takes quite a bit of time to get through them all!! My FS lowered the FSH dose because she said that the higher doses can end up being toxic, particularly in older women. I got 6 average-quality eggs last time around on 300 gonal-f. She reckons I might get about the same on current protocol, but that quality could also be higher. Only time will tell.... It's cool that you have some certainty around when EPU will be. Nice to be that organised! Everything crossed for you honey.

    Mum4nay - how exciting that you're doing your own cycle! yippeeee!!!!!! hope tomorrow's scan shows lots of follie growth and what's this about donor EPU? Is that going on at the same time??

    Melk - thanks for popping in with your lovely words. Trust you are getting lots of robust movements. Bliss....

    PinkB - where are you up to gorgeous? thanks to you also for your lovely thoughts
