    Default IVF/ ICSI cycle - with calcium

    Hi all, has anyone had better fertilisation rates with an IVF/ICSI cycle when the embryologist adds calcium?

    Mine didn't change. Scientist told me that those that are lacking calcium it would help, but if you're not then it won't do anything so I figure you've got nothing to lose.

    Hi booboo. I don't have any experience with calcium, but my first round of ICSI we had very low fertilisation, 1 out of 8. I guess i just wanted to let you know that even without changing anything (except increasing the gonal f dosage) the next 2 rounds we got 3/8 and then 3/7. So what happens in your first round doesn't necessarily dictate your next few rounds. Good luck.

    gl appy, fx for a bfp very soon. Thanks Maggieme, Im praying we just had bad luck last time, so scared. Glad to hear u were more successful next time around. We had a review apt and they will up my dose of puregon from 200 to 250, they r also changing my med from orgalutron to a synarel (nasal spray). What dose have u been on? Sending lots of luck

    I started on about 100 gongal f in my first round, then around 350 in my second and this last cycle 450. My FS is trying to get more eggs each time, but my body seems set on 7 or 8! I have been on synarel each round. I'm glad your FS is trying new things, hopefully you figure out the right mix for your body soon

    During my first 2 cycles my doctor increased the dosage after my first scan, I guess once she could see I wasn't over stimulating. It's worth asking your FS about, but I'm sure they must have their reasons.

    I had a blastocyst transferred last week and my test is on Tuesday, I've never made it to the test though my period has always come before then Our other 2 weren't good enough quality to freeze unfortunately so if this doesn't work I will be jabbing again in a couple of months time.

    I really hope you have better luck next cycle and this one was just an anomally
