I know nothing anyone says can help right now.
Re progesterone, I am suspicious that there are different scales of measurement after reading some stuff on this. I was told yesterday mine was off the charts (which is good apparently) at 380. Have no idea what the unit of measurement is though. I have learnt from the last couple of days that the beta level is important, as is the oestrogen and progesterone but havent found any charts of levels, sorry.
Next time hun. xx
dancingbutterfly - Sorry to hear your news. I definitely think a glass of wine (or 3) is a good plan! Hope you're okay.
I don't know about progesterone levels - sorry. I've never been told them, although I assume they get them from the blood tests!
Unfortunately I cant help with this one. My FS kept me on the same dose of Gonal F this cycle and the last one (I was on puregon the cycle before). Because my ovaries are in weird places - very high and tricky to get to - they pump me along at the highest dose of FSH they can - 300 units. I certainly dont over produce and seem to be mild PCOS with a slight resistance to the drugs (yep, we collect "rare" categories me and my husband )
My FS's thoughts this cycle were to keep the drug protocol the same but let my eggs mature in me a bit longer and to be honest fewer developed (probably my age, who knows) and then they were let to mature in the lab for a bit longer too, before ICSI. Hubby's sperm was put through pentoxy as well and we got the 6/6 fertilisation.
Its all really a science experiment and sadly you cant tweak too much at a time because then you dont know what works and what doesnt. Being the impatient OCD Virgo I am, I was always thinking, just throw the works at this and lets get this show on the road, but they cant Risk of OHSS and the like. And even with my low numbers, I think that I have still had a touch of OHSS - just from the drug levels.
All I can say is you have to trust your FS and if in your heart you dont think its right, maybe a second opinion. My current FS is my second opinion.
Also, as Meshell23 said along time ago on here, its your body and your money...so ask lots of questions and put some scenarios to your Doc - I did it all the time
Good luck hun.
Nicsta - with your levels they dont need too
Id take that as a good sign hun!
Means you dont know the doubling rate, but that only seems to matter in some cases - like mine (please poppy, stay there!).
My scan is a week early as B is going on leave the week I would be 8 weeks and so we are in a bit earlier so he can do the scan - which makes me very happy
