    Hey @Caesardust Warren had me on about 400 Gonal F. Originally he was going to do 450 but we lowered it before I started. Genea had me on 175 for one stim then 200 for the next and Monash my very first clinic put me on 250 (all Gonal F). It is a funny thing as Warren uses high doses of stim medicines to get a bigger response yet Genea used lower doses to get more of a quality response. With the lower doses I definitely got less eggs at EPU but I still got BFN's.

    Hi Rockalee welcome and good luck with cycle #2.

    Morning to everyone else My hormones are already charging up last night I broke a plate I was once again annoyed at the DH and I put it down that hard on the counter it broke in half with my dinner on it, so I had a hissy fit and threw it all in the bin.

    @rockalee welcome! I have added you to our April group of cyclers.
    With regard to drug doses there seems to be 2 schools of thought on this. One is the more eggs the more chances of a 'good' one. The other is that lower egg numbers = better quality... hence why some FS's go for lower doses of stims. Anecdotally what we have seen on here is that some ladies do better on high, some on low stim doses. It's a trial and error thing about what works for you.
    I got good numbers but few blasts at the end of it. My dose was 225 Gonal F. Six cycles in we finally got our BFP.

    Welcome rockalee. I am also 40 and a few days behind you. I do my first injection tomorrow and will have my first scan on Friday. It is my first go. I am on different meds though. I do Elonva tomorrow and menopur later in the week.

BFN (on Christmas Eve) of course. I'm on a much higher dose of gonal f this time and seem to be responding better. 4-5 even sized follies at my first scan on Friday. How on earth do you ladies do this month after month after month? I have such admiration for you all. What sort of response do you tend to get? I was told 4-5 is average for my age but obviously was hoping for a much better response this time.

    Welcome @rockalee.....


    and prayers being sent for a Golden Egg amongst those follicles!!!

    @BlondeinBrisvegas please help. Af arrived today 3 days bloody early so now i have to do a mad dash to tfc in the morning to get all my meds. Anyway i cant remember how many progynova to take and im supposed to satart them today. Somewhere in my brain i thought it was x2 2mg 3times a day but arrrh i dont remember. I have left over pred so ive taken that and i have now stopped dhea as well. Damm it i cant believe its shown early.... i guess due to scratch and flush.

    I reckon 375IU is around the medium dosage when you look at the average that we on this thread as a collective whole have been prescribed.

    I've been prescribed anywhere between 225IU-450IU. I seem to have a better response on the lower end of the dosages. Also, FS's have to take into account whether you're PCO/PCOS, a "Poor", "Normal" (which was me) or "High" responder when deciding on what dosages to give.

    In addition to (as already mentioned) whether they want to really push the ovaries with a higher dose for egg numbers with the hope of getting a few quality one's among the many or take a more gentle approach with a lower dose to aim for quality over quantity.

    Hi to all the the lovely ladies. @Calypso i believe we are cycle buddies.

    Thinking of you @Tahli
    Yep...2x2mg's tabs 3x a day Luv and whack a couple of those up your VJay Jay if you feel so inclined

    Don't panic about the meds. It wouldn't matter if you couldn't start your stim's until Tuesday anyway. I've started them on Day 3 in the past. Yep, the scratch/flush will be the reason no doubt.

    Everything will be ok Luv

    and prayers being sent for a BFFP Cycle!!!!
