You are a stronger woman than me @littlesparrow74
@Kelly70 I dug out my last round of results for your interest:
Day 4 scan 2 x 7mm follicles Left ovary only
Day 9 scan 3 x follicles 1 x maybe - scan with FS so no details but she did mention some VERY small follicles that would 'be useless'.
Day 11 scan 11mm and 9mm follicles right ovary, 19.3, 16mm, 15mm, 13mm, 11mm and 10mm left ovary - what a difference just two days made suddenly!!
Day 14 scan Another one popped up on the right side making 3 - 15mm, 14.5mm, 11mm. Left side 21mm, 21mm, 19mm, 16mm, 16mm, 14.5mm
EPU at Day 17
It really does show you how much can change - I seemed to be responding poorly until day 11- I was lucky FS decided she want to give the larger follicles a couple of extra days to grow or we might have missed all the littlies.

Hi guys. Kelly 2 follies are great persevere and don't worry if its a long stim I know it's a pain but sometimes the ones that grow slowly are the better ones. Sparrow stay strong and don't test at all if on pregnyl. I always used pregnyl during 2ww and it lasted a full 16 days in my system you don't want a false positive. When I got pregnant I was 18 days past transfer with no AF and was still too soft to test ! Jem where are you at ?
Thanks @Jem70 - I could only dream of having that kind of result but it's not possible with my bogus amh. I will be thrilled Monday if I still see two follicles and they have grown.
@littlesparrow74 - I am feeling your nerves right now!! Tuesday is not so far away now. Sensible thing to do would be to not test til then - although I would be tempted to the day before as I would prefer a heads up. Stronger girl than me too!! I will be dying to hear the result Tuesday - keep us informed. I'm feeling pretty positive for you with 2 in there.
@Helsbaby - I've not tried a gentler, longer stim before but makes sense in this age bracket I reckon... Interested to see how it pans out for me. it's going to mess me up next week at work as I start Oncall Wednesday for a week - I don't know how I'm going to get out if it if EPU occurs late next week or over the weekend! Kind of hoping I have to keep stimming another 10 days or something so I won't have Oncall to juggle.
Hi @Helsbaby how is Angela doing? And how are you? I'm ok - just getting the nerves for first scan on Monday. I'm still really worried my stims are too high for my age but FS doesn't seem responsive to that conversation. @Kelly70 no point getting hopes up but just keep at it - your other side may jump on board which would be very exciting.
At least no migraine today thank goodness so the stims have settled - just how to hide the ugly bloat tonight!
@Biscotti71 how are you out there - I'm guessing you're are still feeling a bit low?
Back on - but phone now 4% - will charge up.
See y'all soon✨
@Jem70 - what dose are you on? Is it gonal f, I can't recall the stim drug in your protocol.
I'd be overjoyed if the other side jumped on board - I still find it odd that the side that's produced follicles this time, my left, did not respond at all in previous 3 cycles. And the right side has now gone quiet. I'd love it to fire back up again but I'm pleased the left hasn't shut down altogether like I thought.
Yay @Biscotti71 back in the house.
@Kelly70 I had only one side first round. Apparently it can switch from side to side - it's weird. I don't think anyone has a concrete theory but it does switch sides - it's not uncommon in the over 40s because we don't respond well to stims so the response is similar to our natural cycle of just one side.
If I was you I would stim as slowly as possible to give any little ones a shot.
i have a theory that I'm a slow responder rather than poor responder. I think my FS pushed too fast in my first cycle - but the results this time could prove me right or wrong
