Just waiting to hear hopefully we do epu on Monday!!!!! I don't seem to have as many eggs as last cycle but hopefully my quality is better..... Stress levels are starting to rise....
Hopefully.... good luck with EPU on Monday. There's nothing you can do now, so don't worry about the number of follicles you have. I've heard a number of stories over the years of follicles that were hidden on the ultrasounds, and that more eggs were picked up on EPU. In any case, it's about the number of mature eggs, so a small number of mature eggs, is always better than heaps of immature ones that grew too quickly.
Does anyone know if the IVF clinic in South Africa (CFC) does IVIG infusions, as well as the Intrallipids that they do do?
MGC Bertie - the clinic called and my fs wants me to continue and do another scan on Monday and hope some of the smaller ones caught up... If we do epu Wednesday it's day 17 and I'm scared it's too late... That and I'm going to lose my big ones as they will die off so freaking out my small ones won't grow!!!! I am upset tonight (and I am not 100% so it doesn't help) my first cycle was cancelled due to poor response so I just have that fear
Hopefully....unfortunately in some cases you just have to go with what your FS recommends. My cycle lengths ranged all over the place, but one of mine was also 17 days, and out of 5 decent follicles on that cycle, he got 2 mature (and 2 immature) eggs, so I wouldn't say all is lost. Those 2 eggs did both fertilise and both looked good on 3dt, so anything can happen.
Of the 4 cycles, it has been, different I suppose. I am on high dosage of stimming meds, 450 menupor, the last time.
I've got a blood test tomorrow, to see if I can start on a long down regulation cycle. The previous ones have been antagonist.
And yeah, I know we have to be realistic as to whether my eggs are up for it or not.
How did your cycles go if you don't mind my asking?
Overall, thank you girls for sharing your stories.
Hi Hope, my cycles the last 18 months were 1x grade 1 embie day 3 transfers (twice - not on immune treatment so both bfn) then 1 follie twice & eggs didn't fertilise so we stopped & found a donor. From age 37 to 39 I got 1 or 2/3 follies & 1 or 2 embies for 4 cycles & had my bub on cycle 4 - had 2 miscarriages with previous cycles both around 7/8 weeks. Blocked tubes, loads of fibroids and high FSH.... VERY blessed to have our bub.

Can I ask those girls who have taken dex before what dosage you were on? Thanks!
