So I started taking the pill yesterday and I will be taking that for four weeks with my last pill being 29/5.
I start a nasal spray (which is to stop the extra follicles dying off) twice a day ie.6am and 6pm from 26th May and keep taking that for a while. I will get my period a couple days after stopping the pill.
I start my fsh injections Thurs June 4th and will have an u/s Fri June 12th to check on follicles to see if they are ready(the right size). At this stage I am still going with the nasal spray and injections. If follicles aren't ready, they will scan again a few days later.
Once follicles are ready, I am to have a trigger injection to simulate the LH surge(this is when I stop the nasal spray and fsh injections).
Then 36hrs later is when they do the egg retrieval in the hospital and DH has to provide the semen sample the same day at the hospital.
Five days later, IF we have successful fertilisation and development, they will put one back in and they try to support it with progesterone supplements(I think she mentioned a gel I would insert vaginally).
I am feeling very emotional already as my last scan during the week showed not many follicles, which means low egg reserves(probably due to age) which could mean treatment could be unsuccessful and my body might not respond enough(which could cause them to cancel my cycle).
Even with all of the risks, I want to go ahead and try this and am praying for a miracle.
It's really hard to feel positive and I want to keep my emotions in check to also not get DH worried.
I am having a crap load of blood tests and DH has already given a semen sample for analysis and he had bloods taken too.
What a journey! Thinking of you all 😘
