Re coq10 I must say I am afraid to take high doses of things...though I am known for being a worrier. Last week was having a problem with a burning face and mum suggested it was too much niacin and im like mannnn what???? Tooo much now??? Being so healthy and feeling bad. Not that she is right but cut down a bit and no more flushing maybe coincidence..
Putting it down to hormones...yest was 28 days since implanon removal and no AF which surprises me as I have been so foul and angry and just want it so that the crap feeling will gooo and I can maybe have a better idea of pinpointing ovulation.
I didnt know it was possible to be 40 and have amh in the 20s being that mine is 5.3 sheesh.
As for donor eggs, makes me very sad that it might come to that as the family line is important to me but having said that even though im lucky to have young sisters I almost feel like I would rather it not be a close relative as a reminder...to her and myself..though who knows how I will feel when it comes to the crunch....
I dreamt the other night that my husband I think it was did an embryo transfer on me hah...and I was wondering does that mean I am pupo! R
Told hubby this morn he was not as amused as I was at all

Panda, congratulations on your little girl and the very low risk factors. Would be great to see you hanging out here still.
Octoberbaby, will be thinking of you for your next scan, hope it will reduce the worrying
Sunny, hope things are going well. This cycle was always intended to be a freeze all due to the CGH. At first my FS wanted to have the option of a fresh transfer as a backup, but after retrieving that many eggs, I was told it wasn't an option any more.
Twocam, glad to hear you've found a MW you like!
Em, hope you have a great day 3 report.
Hi Fort Kenta, Mrs P MrsErinR Bertie, Luca Stillhope and everyone else
Butterfly, MrsMac, Myheart - here's my take on the supplements. When I first started on this journey, I was only taking the ones I was using when I conceived before, ie Blackmores preconception, fish oil probiotic and vit C, so for the first cycle, I wasn't really on any egg support. My results were OK, but I've had better since: I got 10 eggs, 9 mature, 7 normal ferts, by day 5, 5 were still hanging in there, with the best one transferred, and 2 were good enough to freeze frozen (later resulted in M/C and BFN). By the second cycle things seemed to improve once I'd put myself on CoQ10. But I didn't really know what dose, so I took 300mg. On that cycle 10 eggs, 6 mature, 5 normal ferts, and out of those 4 were frozen at day 5 (1 later became a BFN, 1 a chem preg, 2 still in the freezer).
This cycle, my FS went all out on he testing (the whole lot, thyroid, immunes etc ) and the supplements: I was on 600mg CoQ10, fish oil, probiotic, prenatal multi, Vit C, L Arginine 2gm daily and inositol 4gm daily as well as melatonin 3mg. I was given the option of DHEA, but as I already have polycystic ovaries, I decided to decline once it was explained that the idea of this was to make ovaries more polycystic . I think it was this plus using elonva that got me the big haul.
I've received my day 3 report just now - out of the 12 normal ferts, I have 4 at 10+ cells, 3 at 9 cells and 5 at 7-8 cells, plus one little straggler at 6 cells. So I guess it remains to be seen if all those supplements have truly made the difference. Am still very sensitive to walk around but have been able to cut back on the pain relief a bit which is great.

Panda - go team pink...!!! Well done...! Your journey is inspiring, thank you for sharing
Springrain - thanks for the information. i am on most of those but there area few I had not about so I will ask my fs...!
MrsMac - the donor decision is very hard. Each transfer I thought this could be the one, then the result came and once again it was not to be. I am PUPO at the moment and I have some hope but it is fleeting. I have been back and forth deciding should i go to donor eggs or try one more time with my own eggs. Time is passing and women who started TTC when I did are having their second baby. Genetics is important to me. My DH has twins from his previous marriage and he constantly mentions that they look ad act like him. I think to myself, I would love that but then again I would love my baby even if it was not my genes.
I know a young lady who had 22 transfers with her own eggs. She is only 33 years old and has a great amh. Nothing worked. Her 23rd transfer she used donor eggs and is now pregnant with twins and she could not be happier! It is a very personal decision but the lovely ladies on this forum can help with advice and support.
