    For those who may be interested....

    So I spoke to my Nurse today, who in turn had previously spoken to my FS. She advised me that my FS agreed this cycle was a bust and was not worth pursuing. He has formulated a 'new plan' which is in fact my old plan - the one that yielded three follies and resulted in one fresh transfer and one frozen transfer that gave me my BFP

    The Nurse said that my FS doesn't think I will have a bleed for quite some time. That would require me to ovulate and I have two stale little follies that are not doing much even under the influence of Gonal-F as they are/were. So the recommendation is that my cycle will need to be manipulated to make that happen.

    I have refused to use the OCP (I swear, it puts my ovaries into hibernation) so will instead start 7 days worth of Primolut from the 18th February. Once I stop those I should have a bleed a few days later, at which point I ring my clinic for approval and then start stimming.

    This cycle will be 100mg of Clomid (I like Clomid, I feel good on it and as I said I did use it in my successful cycle) and 400iu of Gonal-F - double what I was on this cycle. We'll see how things go on 7th March when I have my first scan.

    If that doesn't yield sufficient follies I'd like to try some new drugs/combinations, and if THEY don't work I'll start advertising for an egg donor. I'm not going to throw the last of our money away on follies that don't come up to size in a 'normal' time frame.

    So it's in the lap of the Gods. If we can somehow get 3 follies out of my crusty old ovaries we will proceed with those and what will be will be. If none fertilise we are out of money, and the only option I will have is to find a sperm donor and try to self-inseminate. It would be a low-cost-low-chance-of-success option, but I would feel I've done everything I could. It would also be an open ended way to leave things for me. Just never giving up but not losing money either.

    So that's me. I feel like I have a concrete plan and I won't be swayed from it. I'm off my meds as of tonight and will enjoy the next two weeks of doing NOTHING

Part of me feels very nervous about the idea of going anywhere while this virus is on the loose.. Especially if we're lucky enough to get preggers.
    Yes it is awful. Those poor babies and parents. Apparently North Qld has the carrier mozzies. I wouldn't be keen to go anywhere it might be, but it sounds likely that we'll get it in Australia too...

    Evening ladies. Another damn pregnyl question. There are three vials in the box and I've only been prescribed to have two. One on 4dpo and 8dpo. I can't help but feel that I should do that last one as its in that box even though I double checked with the nurse and she said no the schedule says just twice. Should I push it?

    not sure Caesardust. I'd just do the two like they suggested. you might break one (like I did, shattered one then the spare) and need to use the spare.
