    Thanks love. Yes, the round that resulted in Blossom was a Clomid cycle too. I am very comfortable with the drug, despite hearing some people who say they struggled on it. I will be taking 100mg a day.

    I know nothing of why I only ended up with 2 eggs. I have had worse ov pain on a normal cycle. I haven't seen the FS since cycle ended due to the clinic closure. Im back on 18th Jan for our FS appt and will be asking alot of questions. If anyone has anything specific I should ask about, please let me know. I just didnt seem to respond well to the single slow release Elonva injection that lasts 5-7days.

    Isn't it!

    As you know my DH had a vasectomy. Every month when AF rolls around I actually find myself looking at men I pass by in the street and wondering if they have good sperm.

    It is especially worse when I know I'm about to ovulate. It must be a primal thing. Not that I'd ever jump a stranger, but I've made the comment more than once to DH that "It's so frustrating I can't get pregnant because I'm ready to right NOW." Poor DH.

    Just dumb luck! My first cycle I did 7 days of Gonal F and Luveris, got my scan and they said I wasn't ready yet, and to do three more days of Gonal F before triggering.

    The second cycle I did 7 days of Gonal F, went to scan, and was told to trigger that night.

    It was pure luck I didn't ovulate early. But I KNOW my body, and there is NO WAY I could go 10 days on Gonal-F without ovulating. Hence the Orgalutran.

    ETA: You might remember with my FET I did a low dose Clomid with the hope of being able to ovulate naturally in preparation for the transfer? And I ovulated early and everyone missed it, lol. That's why I did 2 months of Clomid prior to my FET! Thank God it happened then and not when I was doing my stims for EPU....

    Definitely ask for the egg reserve count if your FS will allow it. Mine doesn't do them - he said they are too 'open for interpretation' but if given the chance I would still get it done if he agreed to it. At least that way you know where you stand.

    @Blossom74 I have had it. My AMH result was 9.4 I think (Im 38), so I was given my protocol based on that fact and that we are male factor IF. Now Im the bloody problem!

    @Precious40 hope your spotting has stopped. Praying it was break through bleeding.
    Wahhh there is nothing I can do about the @rse grapes now boohoooo. My GP just rang to say there is no point giving me a referral as they won't do anything - not even banding - when I'm UTD !!! Oh. My. God. I'm going to have to put up with this indefinitely.

    @Blossom74 that is exciting that you're getting a new cycle underway! When I did my cycles I used the Orgalutran for about three days prior to what would have been EPU had we gotten more than one follicle to the right size. And then we triggered so we could DTD or we did IUI to hope for a conception. It was no drama, if they're scanning you regularly they should know when your follies are getting closer to the right size and get you started on it to prevent them popping!

    @Tahli I feel your frustration! If we lived closer together I would be tempted to offer you my DH's sperm! He is quite keen to be a sperm donor in the future (and he makes BEAUTIFUL children), but I did say to him that would be pretty hurtful right now when we don't have our own child. Once we do have our own family (fingers crossed) I would be fine with it though

    AFM I woke up New Year's Day with Bell's Palsy, likely from a virus I got just before Christmas. Geez I can't take a trick with my health at the moment. It's not a severe case, so I can leave the house without a balaclava, but if you know me, you can see my drooping eye and weird mouth when I smile and I can't talk properly and my eye is permanently watering. So back on the prednisone today but not IVF related

    I just booked in to my FS next Wednesday to get started on my next cycle. AF is due the 15th, so I'm going in to talk about doing a low dose cycle, and hopefully I can pick up my meds and get jabbing in about ten days time. I'm not particularly hopeful at all, but I guess like BIB has said, I have to leave no stone unturned and now that it's been six months off all the meds (and I was doing better until I got freak-face syndrome) I want to do a cycle before I turn 45 just to know in my own mind that I did try everything possible with my own eggs.

    Then I'll see if I can pull my super out to do a DE cycle and get moving, I'm so over my life being in limbo and putting things on hold "just in case" I fall pregnant. We're planning holidays later in the year and I'm hesitant to pay deposits as "what if I'm due around then and we have to cancel?" but I've been doing that for nearly three years now and I just want to be able to plan things properly and not always have in the back of my mind "what if"...
