    It's also no wonder so many people pi$$ off o/seas where it's cheaper and the Clinics are just as good and in some cases, even better than here in Aus!!!

    I most certainly will enjoy it Luv!!!
    I feel completely ripped off by the local clinic I used. They lied to me about costs and what I'd get😒 and I ended up with 2 three day transfers of a 4 cell and a 3 cell that were obviously inferior. I am going to Greece in March which is cheaper than local and I get more for it! A lot of these clinics really don't care how we get this money for them at all. I have drawn down from my mortgage twice now for IVF and will probably never pay it off now😦

    @Charlie74 I was 42 starting with Wazza. I have PCOS, endo/aden and DH has motility and morphology issues. Whilst we are all different - we were quoted 5-10%. I think it's the extra eggs that increased our chances. Not sure if Wazza would give us the same chance now...

    I went through a float stage years ago and found they are very relaxing. My stepmum finds them claustrophobic, but they said she could leave the door ajar. I get slightly claustrophobic, but was okay. My DH goes into lala land and needs a few hours to come back to earth. DH and I also went in a double tank one time and that was good, but not as relaxing. Make sure you put Vaseline on any cuts, even the tiniest scratch as the water is very salty (surf X 100) and they will sting. Are you having a massage as well? I hope you love it.

    Love this!!!

    Also, a question for the group re Gonal-F doses. I've heard of some people being offered 400iu and their FS won't go any higher. Then others seem to get 600iu. Any ideas on why FS's are hesitant to prescribe the higher doses? I am going to check my supplies and bump my dosage from 400iu to 450iu for my next attempt, but just curious....
    FS#1 wouldn't go over 300 and argued it could decrease quality. Wazza then starts me on 450 and then increases to 600, or just has me on 600 all the way through. He does 3-4 scans per cycle. We've had better results with Wazza and I'm getting older not younger. The lower doses reduce the risk of OHSS and I suspect that is why the cheaper clinics use lower doses to reduce risk of complications. I know QFG monitors the number of cases each FS gets of OHSS and they get in trouble if they have too many. Wazza also splits the daily dose into 12 hourly. I don't know if other FSs do? It makes sense to me as most medicines are more effective with a steady supply, rather than a burst.

    Good luck!

    @tuxcat in terms of patterns with embryos our best cycle was a back-to-back and was the 5th in 6-7 months. Knocked me about, but embies were better. We didn't down-reg that cycle. We very rarely drink, I've put on weight since starting IVF, but don't eat sugar/carbs as a rule and only break in that was this week as comfort eating after poor result. Never smoked/done drugs. Exercise has lessened since starting IVF as I react badly to many of the drugs. DH does love his carbs and coffee, but that doesn't worry Wazza.

    @Tahli I'm on diabex too. 2000 a day - I built up 500 per week, but now have after breakfast and after dinner. I'm often nauseous, so if I cannot eat have a sustagen mixed in Thermomix and then diabex and that is okay. Progynova makes me hideously nauseous, so I'm on Stemitel for that, but will switch to Maxolon post next ET as doctor says it has safer rating for pregnancy. Have you got a good GP who can help you juggle your FSs?

    I hope you feel better soon.

    @Tahli is your cat on prednisolone or Predinisone? Mine is on Pred-X and I thought I'd give her my leftover pred as it is cheaper, but they googled and found Pred-X is prednisolone, not prednisone. Vet meds are so expensive!

    @Blossom my fs has me on 450 but the first time i was on 450 basically it fried my eggs i over stim and my eggs didnt fertilise. My next cycle i was down to 300 with clomid which was successful. My last 2 cycles have been 450 as i was 2 years older and its what i need.

    As a poor responder, who took 400 for her successful cycle, I think there is zero risk I could over stim! And if my eggs were ok at 400, I reckon they should be fine at 450. I'm making the executive decision - my dose is now 450, not 400, for Monday. As long as AF arrives, of course. Hello? AF? Where are you...?
