    @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.

    I'm tempted to self prescribe a higher dose!

    Cycle 1 Gonal-F = 300 1 egg, failed to fertilise
    Cycle 2 Gonal F = 400 (7 days) & 450 (2 days) 3 eggs, 2 fertilised sucessfully
    Cycle 3 Gonal-F - 200 No eggs able to be retrieved, two follies but way too small
    Cycle 4 - Have been prescribed 400 Gonal-F, but I have some spare in the fridge.

    So bl00dy tempting to knock the dosage up to 450....

    There's no way they could find out I'd done a sneaky on them, is there? And no detrimental effects in doing it? I'm going to be doing 100mg of Clomid as well.

    Geez it gives me the sh!ts that we basically have to arrange our cycles ourselves. I mean, what are we paying these people for?! It's like when I asked my Nurse "What happens if I bleed early?" and she just said "Well, maybe we should push your cycle forward a week." No-one would have said anything about it if I hadn't.


    In other matters, it appears that all of my hair is falling out. I mean, I still have some of course, but when I blow dry my hair it looks like a small dog has disrobed on my bathroom floor. Hair everywhere. There is hair on the pillows in the morning too.

    Hormonal perhaps? Anyone else have this issue? Anything I can do to avoid going bald?

    @Blossom74 hmmm id be careful there..I have been tempted to do this too but always chickened out. If I was going to do it I would only notch it up by 25, as then it might make a slight difference but it wouldnt do anything too radical. The thing is if you do take it up a lot you might fruck up the whole cycle, then what if after monitoring they say to take it down as things are growing too fast? Have you ever done the clomid with it all before? If you haven't I wouldn't change anything because you have no idea how thats going to change things. The thing is that cycles are all different, so you cant rely on the fact that everything will be a repeat of the last time you did that same amount. HTH

    @Charlie74 I'm on one endometrin pessaries a day (at night) though the box says 3. they were $68 for a box of 21 (100mg). my script is for 5 repeats. there's a little applicator that you reuse. each pessary is a little tablet. I started the friday night before my monday transfer if that helps

    sometimes I pop another one in during the day (though my p4 level dropped a touch since I did that. only twice so far)

    Yeah, I've used it too. 3 x a day kept my period away, unlike 2 x crinone. Think it was 120 for 2 boxes. Can't remember when I started it sorry!

    Yes, I've done the Clomid in the last two cycles. My bet is I will chicken out anyway

    @Blossom74 could you discuss the doses with your FS/nurse and see what they think. I'm not sure about changing the levels either as I don't know what impact they all have, like @tuxcat said. 400 worked well for you before didn't it
