    @Summer You deleted your pic before I got a chance to squint! Was it hard to see the second line once it was posted?

    @Tahli I just know that I was prescribed it as it helps insulin levels in women with PCO which in turn helps fertility. I'd really lower the dose until you can speak to your doc, pretty sure you shouldn't be that sick on it. I'm on 1500 but I have to space it out over the course of the day, if I took two tabs at once (1000mg) like you I'd be stuck on the toilet with explosive diarrhea!

    @Charlie74 You've just made me well up. Why didn't I post my concerns earlier. You've absolutely explained how I feel. I didn't know how to explain it. Thank-you so very much. What a relief to know what's happening to me. It sounds like I've been hypoglycemic for a week. I was cm's from a full-on car accident yesterday. I just didn't see the other car. I'll follow your advice to the letter. I'm crying. Big hugs, xx.

    @Bongley Do you do 3 x 500mg per day? That would make more sense given how I feel. I don't have PCO. Dr M just said they'd had some success with it. He didn't elaborate.
    @Charlie74 The Diabex has robbed me of my chocolate addiction. I couldn't even read the girls posts last weekend about food. I tried but the actual food words made me dry-retch! Ridiculous!! I have some frozen smarties in the freezer. I'll try to get a few in to me.
    I want to try the glass of pomegranate juice for my lining as per your suggestion but that's aiming too high at the moment. I was determined not to actually vomit so I could keep the Progynova in. I thought I was going to have to resort to administering them vaginally. All I care about is my lining!
    Gosh this transfer can't come quickly enough...exactly 3 weeks to go.

    No idea love. I've never used anything but Gonal F - in fact, if this next round fails I'm going to ask about Puregon and Menopur as an alternative. I'm sure your FS has a reason to put you on one rather than the other

    Yes, I started on 500mg per day for a week. Then 2x 500 the next week, spaced out over the day taken after food, then 3 x 500. I can't take two tabs any closer that 5 hours apart or I would poo myself into orbit. I'm sorry but your dry retching at the food words made me laugh.

    The first day or two it was horrible runs with painful tummy cramps (thankfully @Chiefsgirl had warned me about that bit), then the next two days I couldn't even stand the smell of tap water to take my medication. I just kept dry-retching. And now there's still big issues around eating any food. I'm guessing this is where the possible weight loss could come in.
    But I'm just zonked out. So ridiculously tired and not sort of engaged. I'm trying to keep life as simple as possible so I can just get through. Usually I'm a lot crabbier/short tempered on Syranel but it's like I've been sedated. I'm on so many meds this cycle I feel...weird, floaty, can't take in many details.
    I started Dex yesterday, a few days early, to try and help with my asthma (a hang-over from my 'hit by a truck' virus that's settled in my chest).
    I've cancelled my w.end away and have hired four Call The Midwife dvds from the library. That's about all I can handle...and broth soup.
    I'm a calm zombie.
    PS: Huge apologies that I haven't kept up with every-one this week. Hopefully the above explains why. Sorry and hi!

    Awww Luv.... Am sorry to hear you're so ill

    Hope you feel better soon

    @Tahli, sorry you're so sick hon.

    Could you try some lemonade maybe? That would get some sugar into you, and maybe pep you up a bit?

    Sending you big hugs
