    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

They were peer-reviewed articles. I've discussed it with Wazza numerous times and am usually on 450-600 FSH. I am a bit of a go hard or go home kinda girl though.

Summer if anyone will be able to get 44yo eggs to work it will be you since your great response with natural cycles. fwiw my gonal-f ranged from 375, 300, 350 with 350 as my last cycle bfp/cp and 375 for cycles 1-3 (frostie). I wonder how I would have gone then at higher dose. what doses have you used previously? maybe the older eggs 43+ respond to higher doses (though I'm sure each person is different)
    Thanks guys! The reason I was looking at doing a lower dose cycle was because I did four cycles of 600 (split doses) with Wazza and didn't get more than one follie ever. It was a go hard or go home effort - he had me on absolutely everything but with my thyroid issues something (not sure exactly what) interfered with my thyroid function and I got really, really sick.

    So I kind of had in the back of my mind that maybe I was never going to produce good follies because I was so sick, so if I do a lower dose cycle without the whole kitchen sink, I might not get so sick and therefore *might* have a chance of getting a better result. Thought it was worth a try as anecdotally many people do say that they got better results with a lower dose. Long shot, but I would like to find out what happens

    I was always on low doses (150 to 170) and responded well but I have polycystic ovaries. Shame about the quality.

    Anyone have their own preferences of using one over the other??
    I prefered endomitrin x 3 as it definitely kept my period at bay and they are a lot less messy.

    @Summer would you cound 375 as a low dose? might be worth a shot
    @Charlie74, I think endometrin seems slightly less messy than crinone but still wear a liner for both as there is leakage
