GirlX sorry to hear that, I think I will be doing same as you with the wine!
Mam that is awesome news that your follie is growing so well enjoy your BD marathon! We do try to BD regularly even outside the fertile window, our FS said it helps keep DH's swimmers 'fresh' and we enjoy it!
I'm so upset today AF is here, I did have a bad feeling it was coming, but it makes it even worse that was such a short luteal phase of only 10 days. What does that mean? The follies did take a long time to develop, maybe the eggs were no good?
Oh well, back to jabbing tomorrow!
I know it's so disappointing!! Onto next cycle though, all we can do is try try again!! Xoxoxo
Minipolly - sorry to hear AF has come! I used to have a really short luteal phase, and for me it was caused by the endometrium (lining of womb) being too thin - so it broke down really easily.
That has been fixed by having progesterone pessaries every night following IUI. My FS said that if I get pregnant then I am to continue taking them for the first trimester too.
Sometimes it can be low progesterone that causes it to break down too early. Other times I think the cause can be that your follicle doesn't produce enough oestrogen as it grows, so the lining of the womb doesn't thicken up enough. I'm sure there are other reasons too, but in those instances it's not the egg quality - it's just that the lining doesn't get thick enough and breaks down quickly.
Mam - you are right - we are very overdue a BFP!!
So sorry to hear AF arrived Girlx & Minipolly
Minipolly - I had a 10 day LP the first 2 rounds of stimulated cycles (yes,it took FS 2 cycles before treating it). Mam is right, they should give you something to support your LP, like a booster shot.
Nturnbull - good luck with your scan
Mam - already on the 2ww! Good luck girl!! Would be a lovely wedding present... babydust!
Welcome mumzie! Great thread to be in, especially for your first round. The gonal-f shots are not too bad, you get used to them.
Hope I didn't miss anybody!
AFM, I didn't have enough meds left to up my dose. Just enough to get through tonight. So, change of plans! I'm going to try and get in for a scan tomorrow and not bother with new bloods. If the scan shows no decent follies, will have to abandon this cycle. Will tell FS I changed my plans tomorrow when he gets the scan results lol. I figure it's only $80, which I'm willing to gamble after jabbing myself for 17 days!
Babydust to all

Thanks girls for the support. No I didn't have any progesterone support this time, so I think I will ask for some or will see if the FS suggests it. I am not sure why he didn't give me any, he may have wanted to just see what happened?? Anyway, first jab was this morning, starting dose of 50 units of Gonal-F this time, and first progress scan is on Friday (which is quite soon at CD6 but Monday is a public holiday so he wanted to check sooner than next Tues). SO hoping this cycle works, lucky #2 I say!!Lee did you get in for a scan today? Gosh I hope there is a good follie there, good luck! Let us know how you go. What will you do if you abandon this cycle? Are you going to have a break or continue on?Mam what drug did you use to trigger? I have Ovidrel but it is in a different dose from what you mentioned, is yours a different brand?
Thanks for your welcome hun!
sorry its taken so long to reply,its a little difficult for me to work out how to lol have the thread and emails come through to daily email as i thought it would be nice to keep up with everyone,but then Its been a pain trying to locate the posts LOL
DHEA is (I think) to help with fertility by tricking the chemicals in your brain! AIH is Artificial Insemination with my husbands magic LOL.
I'm hoping and praying I'll be given the injection pen,rather than the syringe,I'm sure I'll cope,case of having to ay!
nturnbull- Great news,everything crossed for your net stage! xx
Minipolly- will be thinking of you xx
Mam- Well done,everything crossed for you hun xx
AFM- so sorry hun,its horrid when you build your hopes up and then they crash, had a glass of vitimin C or two for you too hun it always helps. Everything crossed for your net cycle hun xxx
am hoping all this is going to come out now lol hope i haven't missed anyone,if so i am sorry,i know its a difficult place to be when TTC whilst having treatment,I think your all very strong and brave and are helping me to be strong,so thank you xx
Minipolly - really hope it is lucky number 2 for you! We certainly new to start seeing some positives in this thread
Mumze- good luck with your first cycle.
Mam- how are you coping so far! Fx
Girlx- where r u up to hun? Jabbing yet?
Nturnbull - good luck with growing those follies!
AFM - I had 4 x 12-13mm follies. No one wanted to take the lead, so we abandon this cycle - what a waste of 17 jabs! I have an appt with FS on Thursday to get a referral & I have made an appt with IVF Aus to see another specialist on 26th March. He is going to review my case and then where to from here I am not quite sure...
Good luck ladies, I will be following your progress! xoxo

UTD real quick!!
Minipolly- yeah I use pregnyl, think its just a different type of hcg but the name and doses are different! I have one to trigger and then a week later have one to offer progesterone support. I've never had a cycle without it so I have no idea what my cycle is like without the progesterone support!!????
Mumze- good luck when u start jabbing. They should give u a pen, either the paragon or gonal f... U will have to draw up the trigger shot in a syringe but the pens are so much easier!
AFM- officially in 2ww now! The trigger shot was fine at first but now getting pains and my bladder feels like its going to burst all the time!! Guess that would be what pregnancy is like!!?
Probably going to do IUI next cycle... I'm just not convinced that it's going to happen naturally!! Will have to talk DH into it though... He wants to keep going naturally... But it's me who has to jab myself every day and go through the horrid side effects!!! I want our chances to be as high as they can be!! I don't understand why he is not keen to do IUI!! Is it a male thing?? Haha!!
I'll try not to bombard u guys with desperate 2ww posts!!! Luckily uni is back and I go back to work next week so hopefully should be a distraction!!
Thinking of u all!!
