    @Tahli,

    All I can say is that for AGES now you've been saying you want to do a final OE cycle.

    I think you owe it to yourself to do it - and frankly, the sooner the better. Time is of the essence my sweet, and I suspect you would be absolutely kicking yourself if you missed the opportunity.

    I say, do whatever you have to do to make that OE cycle happen. Then you can say you did your best, and have no regrets.

    Thanks @Blossom74 That's what I needed some-one to say I think. Even if I only get 2 follicles, which is likely as I don't respond much to the FSH, then at least I'll know I tried.
    That would mean I get a month 'off'' as such. In a couple of days I'll do LB's blood tests (she's testing for 15 things), then get Dr M's blood results back, then have a lining/follicle scan during my off cycle to see if I produce the same amount of lining/follicles as when I pump myself full of IVF drugs, then have LB's hysteroscopy (I'll get her to do a scratch too), get AF a week later & start my OE cycle (providing the hysteroscopy doesn't reveal anything nasty).
    Not having a partner to chat these things through with really is a pain sometimes. Thank goodness I have you girls!
    I thought I needed that OE cycle money to pay my solicitor but he's suggested I pay him at the end of the legal process so that freed up my final savings to do the OE cycle. But it really is all of my savings as I have to pay $11k and then wait for the Medicare rebate.

    Are they unopened? Could you offer them to any of the single ladies ('social' ivf) who might not have access to Medicare and have to pay thousands and thousands of dollars for their IVF meds, compared to us who only have to pay $36 per medication?

    @Tahli do you know how one organise that? We keep them in the fridge and they take up a lot of room...

    @Bongley I hope you don't mind my asking? But you've mentioned thyroid issues a few times... (If anybody else knows I'd welcome your input too) .

    I have hypothyroidism which is medicated, but also have a history of silent thyroiditis where it fluctuates between over and under active. It's stayed underactive for a couple of years now, but I've recently had some symptoms which are reminiscent of my experience of hyperthyroid phases (shakes, tachycardia, increased insomnia, tender goiter). I'm going to ask FS to check it, but won't see him until CD6 of upcoming stim cycle. Do you know if fertility and thyroid issues are related to egg quality/stimming or post transfer issues? We're hopefully banking this cycle, so if it is post transfer then they'll be time to address it, but if it effects stimming then I feel I should get it checked sooner. Potentially I think my symptoms could be related to medication detox from last cycle as timing has coincided and therefore nothing to do with thyroid, but I don't want to jeopardise our cycle. My GP and FSs have used different ranges historically, so I try to leave this to my FSs, although imagine I'll need to go back to Endocringologist if it's gone too off kilter. Your thoughts?

    Hi @Gagingi as far as I know its related to higher miscarriage rates but I'm not certain that it isn't related to any other issues. I see my endocrinologist every few months and she has given me a bloods test form that I can get done and sent to her if I start feeling weird for any reason and she will call me back and let me know if its looking ok. She seems to take care of all that side of things rather than my FS or GP. I've gone from hypo to hyper (graves) and back again. I developed graves when I got pregnant and they think it that may have something to do with my sons tachycardia in the womb (he is fine now) If it were me I'd see my endocrinologist before the cycle to make sure all the levels are ok but she is always my first port of call. I have to see her next week as my instructions with a BFP are to up my thyroxine dose and to see her 4 weeks after a BFP.
