@Gagingi best of luck for EPU, 20 eggs is mammoth!!
@Caesardust thinking of you and sending you luck for today too. Sounds like you've prepared yourself for bad news but Im really hoping its a surprise BFP. Sorry to hear about the mess up with progesterone, In saying that though, Ive always been given either pregnyl or crinone/pessaries, as the pregnyl should trick your body into making the progesterone so its weird that it hasn't worked for you. BUT in saying that its negligent of them to have not been monitoring you, that is until you suggested it. Very bad form.
@Precious40 hope you're feeling better and you can start to recover emotionally
about the doses of FSH, I agree with Blonde, that more is not proven to be better, my FS and other colleagues of hers all say that going over about 300 is supposedly just giving money to the drug companies as theres apparently only so much that your body will actually use. Now I have always disagreed with this as my BFP and better cycles have been with 375, but in saying that Ive always had mixed results even there. For me every cycle is always different, and it seems that the cycles later in the year yield more eggs for some weird reason. Ive often wondered whether its lifestyle factors as nov/dec always involve more alcohol and less good girl/boy behaviour!
But whenever they have lowered it I've always had the worse responses, so I think it is a very individual thing. They won't however go over 375, although Im tempted to ask if we can try 400 to see if it makes any difference.
Higher amounts are given in the US aren't they and from what Ive read it might give you more eggs but not more embryos or quality embryos.
