Tj79 - first cycles are always a bit dicky. Some people are lucky in that they work all fine as per the text book because they are a text book patient. For the rest of us - the majority - its a game of trial and error.
125 is a low dose. Im assuming you are about 32yo and not knowing what your "diagnosis" re infertility is Im not sure why they started you on 125. I am PCOS and overweight so risk for OHSS was considered high so I started on 125 and my response was poor - one dominant follie. So first cycle cancelled. Second time they went to 200 and that was still too low. New FS knew from how I had responded that I am FSH resisteny PCOS (and maybe not even PCOS) so he put me straight on 300! (Max dose for my age and ovarian reserve really!)
So if you have one or two still in the game, Id say thats good for a first cycle. I got that far with cycle two!
Hang in there. Its all a learning process. Even the cycle you get pregnant on will be!
Clem - talk about pains. OMFG last night I cried from 8.30 til 11. DH sat with me and rubbed my back. My uterus must have been contracting or something. They pains are just starting again now. Seems to be an end of the day thing!
Other than that Im ok. Im still sad and angry and preoccupied with how unfair the world is, and want to be able to start again now. And Im scared that that might be the only time we get pregnant, that we will never get there and I cant bear that thought
So situation normal for someone on the IVF rollercoaster really!
Peonies - great follie numbers!
Back to Masterchef for me - and no spoilers you eastern states peeps LOL!
