    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*

    Sorry to hear that @Blossom74. Less is not more for me either, and I think you made the right call too. Some months are just duds I think, it happens and cancelling is the way to go not flogging a dead horse when you know in your gut that it's not going to work out, even though they take a different view. You want to make the most out of every dollar so good on you taking the stand.

    agree we need some good news in here!

    i thought precious scan is tomorrow. Good luck @Precious40 I will be thinking of you.

    @Blossom74 I also think you've made the right call there for sure and I commend you on your assertiveness in telling the clinic how it will be. Sometimes they just keep pushing on like they are lemmings or something. Sometimes you'd think they get commission or something sick like that.
