After a long time of lurking on this forum I thought I'd ask for some advice.
i just completed a stim cycle which resulted in one egg but no embryo. I've tried to make a follow up appointment as we would like to go straight into another cycle but was told my FS couldn't see me until August!
I feel very let down by the whole process and very much just like a number, certainly not a patient.
i am being treated at Monash in Melbourne. I stimulated for 14 days, on day 8 I had 8 follicles on each ovary, averaging 10mm. By day 14 only 5 'or maybe 6' had grown sufficiently (total, not per ovary). That same day I received a call from a nurse I had never dealt with before saying that we wouldn't be doing a transfer this month due to 'elevated blood levels'. She wasn't able to tell me what was elevated or when the transfer could occur... To say she was vague would be an understatement. I had to follow up the next day with my regular nurse to try to get a proper explanation of what was going on. Obviously I was devistated with the low number of follicles and then being told we wouldn't be able to transfer.
At no point was it suggested to cancel the cycle due to the low number of follicles. Then at egg collection only one egg was able to be picked up which didn't fertilise... Another blow.
With such a disappointing outcome I would have thought I could see my Dr sooner than in two months time! I've never warmed to him and find his office staff rude and at times unprofessional. I don't know if we should just start again elsewhere? Any advice would be gratefully received.
