My past FS wouldn't let me take more than 3 that gives me some hope that all I may need are additional patches and pills. I haven't used vaginal viagra but I may ask my clinic about it

    Thanks again for your input and can't wait to hear about you success at Serum this go.
    Definitely try the extra tablets and a patch every second day. On the cycle that gave me my son I was on 16 progy plus patches. It was a protocol first prescribed by my Aussie FS for a cycle at Genesis in Athens and I've stuck with it. People will say 'your body can't absorb that much oral progy' - and I hear what they say but it doesn't explain why on 4 per day for 2 weeks I get a lining of 4mm, but on 16 (or these days 9) after two weeks I'm between 9 and 11 mm.

    Yes I took 6 per day (4 vaginally and 2 orally at night) - I figure more can't hurt!

    Thank you ladies!!! I'm going to push for patches from day 3 and the pills. I've had 4 d&c's but I refuse to believe my lining is that thin. So encouraging to here that upping the dose helps.

    I think I've had 3 d&c's too (lost count these days, might be more actually, I think it's 4) - I would be surprised if that caused a thin lining though (I've had lining problems pre d&c)? Is that something your Dr suggested? I've always been told I just metabolise meds differently to most people - lucky me!

    @Vixjc, my FS thinks that maybe the scraping during the d&c has caused thin lining, I really don't buy it. I just had a lap and hysteroscopy done which came back all good so I find it hard to believe that it's a lining issue seeing as how my issue isn't implantation it's chromosomal issues and issues at the mitochondrial level with the embryos. Hope that makes sense .

    Also, what thickness does your clinic view as acceptable? Mine will transfer at 8mm.

    Hello Ladies and welcome AussieAmerican.

    I'm on to I think my forth day of meds for Serum. Just count the Clexane injection sites and I will know lol.
    @AussieAmerican I've got my lining scan on Saturday to see where I'm at. I just had a hysteroscopy and D &C so hope all is good. I've never had lining issues before but it's been 2 years since my last ivf so things may have changed. Peny at Serum has me on 4 progy. We will see how we go.

    Currently waiting to find out when Peny wants me at Serum. I think it will be a quick turn a round. Lucky I have the whole month off work. @Vixjc as you went to Serum Is it right that they work a bit different with the donor cycle. Does she have a couple of donors going at once and you get the one that is ready at the tight time and the other goes to embryo donation? I think that's what I read on the Fertility friends site ages ago. When did Peny give you the green light to book your flights and go?
    I'm such an organiser and this waiting game is a killer.

    Hope everyone has enjoyed the long weekend.

    @KitKat, if you don't mind me asking who do you have measuring your lining? I don't think I want to go back to my last FS because she doesn't think I need DE. I'm in Melbourne

    That rings a bell - but for us it was a couple of years ago now so I don't recall exactly. I thought it was that she had your primary donor selected but has a back up donor just in case. The back up donor is usually someone who hasn't donated before so they use it as a sort of trial run of the new donor to see how they respond to the meds and the quality of the eggs etc. Genesis clinic definitely had a swag of girls cycling and you just get whomever is ready. We went to Genesis first and I remember that when I went to Serum for my next cycle, Serum had a much more personal selection process than that.

    When we cycled in 2014 I just gave Penny a 6 day window and said 'I need to receive the transfer some time in that 6 days!'. She timed the whole thing and I received a fresh transfer on about day 3. I imagine you'd get between 5-7 days notice if transfer day? I think it's usually around 17-22 days from when you start meds? So you're on the home stretch my dear! I'm guessing you'll be in Athens for mid April.

    Just a tip, cabbies always get confused about where Serum is (it's on a narrow street parallel to a main road. It helps to have printed a map of that area. Or use her nephew for your first trip to the clinic till you get accustomed to the landmarks and can tell them where to stop.

    Thanks @KitKat! I tried to send you a PM but it wouldn't go through . I'll definitely be in contact with your FS, I was with that same clinic too. Xo
