well i called my phrmisist tonight & asked how long i should get AF after stop taking provera & she couldnt tell me but she assumed I should have it by now as in the past i have gotten AF around day 3 & today is day 6 so she said the best thing to do is call my gyno but that will have to wait until thursday as wednesdays is his surgery day. I will be POAS tomorrow morning though just to make sure & if i get my BFP then the phone call thursday will be 1 to make an appointment to get it confirmed .
Testing on the 10th... Can someone please add me?
Can I please be added to test on the 2nd May?
I came off of implanon a couple of weeks ago and am yet to have Af.. But I think I may have O'd in the past couple of days Ee! So exciting!
Hi can you please add me to the 15th May. Thank you.
All updated Ladies.
Had EPU today and we got 24 . Now we have to watch out for OHSS.
Doing IVF you stim (inject FSH = Follicle Stimulating Hormone) for up to 2 weeks to grow as many follicles as healthily possible. A good number is around 10-12. You are monitored all the way through, it's hard to tell exactly how many follicle you have until EPU (Egg Pick UP). FS can only guess. Mine guessed at 16.
Any thing over 10-12 follicles and you are at risk of OHSS (Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome). It can make you very sick and put you in hospital. It can cause painful stomach (from enlarged ovaries from stimming), vomiting, swelling caused by fluid & shortness of breath.
If you go to TF and become pregnant the symptoms get worse. I have had a mild dose of OHSS and it wasn't the greatest.The way to prevent it is to eat lots of protien and drink roughly 2lt of water a day. This doesn't alway help.
Because I have PCO I am at a greater risk of over stimming so normally we are conservative in my FSH doses. In saying that some ladies over stim on a low FSH dose.
Does that help?

WOW - so much to know! Thanks for the run down... I guess the positive was how many you got but you need to watch for the OHSS. Will they try and fertilize all 24 (eggs I am assuming?)
all works out perfectly for you and that this is your cycle!
