    Unfortunately, no good news on my end.

    Lining was only 4.7, which did not surprise me in the slightest considering I am STILL spotting. My period never ended.

    I also only made two follies, and they measured 5mm and 3mm respectively.

    Very disappointing, but I guess it goes to prove (for me anyway) that less is not more. Less is less

    My Nurse tried to talk me into continuing the Gonal-F and seeing if we can grow them up to size. I said that I didn't want to do that, as I wanted the follies to grow to size naturally in the 'normal time frame.' I don't want to waste $5K trying to fertilise 'aged eggs' if that makes sense.

    She was very discouraging about that but I stuck to my guns and said I wanted to cancel the cycle and try again next month. She said she would talk to my FS about it and get back to me with what he thought was the best thing to do.

    I rang DH and told him. He was in full agreement with me. He said we said originally we wanted three as a minimum for EPU. Even if there were two that were close to size (like 14mm) we could push on for a day or two, but he agreed trying to grow a 3mm folly up to 16mm was ridiculous and we should just try again next month. If it is meant to be it will be.

    I have requested my Nurse to tell my Doctor I want to do a cycle with as high a dosage as he can give me that is both within the bounds of 'legal' but not enough to kill me

    If that doesn't work I'd like to try a round with drugs we've never tried before, like Menopur (sp?) for example.

    I am disappointed in today but I still feel in my gut I have good eggs on board. I am going to keep trying and if my FS won't help (though I suspect he will do another round on a higher dose) then I'll go somewhere else!

    @Blossom74 - I'm sorry you didn't get good news. However I think you made the right decision cancelling the cycle. I would do the same. Much better to start a new cycle rather than blasting the two follies with a high fsh dose in an attempt to push them on.

    CD10 @Tahli. I should have reasonable sized follies by now. I have done 8 shots of Gonal-F in that time. Normally I would do 8 days and be ready for EPU.

    Yep, absolutely fair call there @Blossom74. It was worth a shot, doing the lower dose but as you said 'less is less' in your case. I'm so sorry. The up shot of course is now you will never need to wonder if a lower dose will work for you, you could cancel pre-EPU, and you don't have to wait a month to stim again if you don't want to. I hope you hear back tomorrow morning from your FS. Have you stopped the meds now? xx

    @Blossom74 that sounds like a good call and one I would make myself having been in that position four times now with only one or two follies. At least you've tried the low dose to see what happened and I think if you are willing to keep going and trying different doses, different drugs (I alternated puregon and menopur daily, and split the doses between morning and night injections) you will likely find the combination that works best and hopefully gets more than three follies. At least this way you are not wasting your time and $$$ at EPU and if you get a good month, you can just go for it. Wise decision methinks

    @Caesardust how come the men can't cope when they don't actually have to go through all the stuff we go through? So you have to do IVF, run staff, and deal with all the house and developer dramas? Men, pfffft.

    @Tahli thanks for thinking of me and hubby. At the moment things aren't so great. Hoping for a chat tonight, so fingers crossed we start making progress.

    @winsor OMG I am hoping and praying that your little embie is the golden one. I hope you are covered from head to toe in babydust from all that we're throwing at you! Good luck hon, you are in my thoughts.

    @Caesardust jebus chrits you HAVE got a lot on your plate, that sounds horrendous, take care of yourself. I was dealing with the lions share of the house moving admin plus IVF etc but at least work is fairly relaxed, I would have had a breakdown if I had to manage 8 people as well, so please delegate back to your DP as soon as he pulls his socks up!
    @Summer hope things get better for you, let us know how the chat goes, how has he been since the counseling?
    @BlondeinBrisvegas you have been very determined and strong, hope you have someone to lean on when it gets all too much.

    I'm very concerned about you all actually! Time for some luck to swing this way I think. *shakes fist at sky*
