calypso75 - sorry to here about the arrival of AF. I think you always need to let the dust settle on bad news before deciding what to do next. I often change my mind between the day of getting the bad news and a few days later. I had EPU yesterday 16 collected but already down to 6 as only 10 were mature (worst maturity rate so far maybe due to the lucrin trigger rather than HCG trigger) and only 6 fertilised.
6 out of 10 with ICSI is pretty good Luv!! I'm sorry there weren't more mature one's among the haul Yep, it could've been the Lucrin trigger or just a sh!t Cycle for you??? Hard to know really.
and prayers being sent for all 6 making it to Day 5!!!
Are you feeling allright???
welcome back @skye76. I think we can all understand the slightly obsessive state we get in during ivf cycles. it's good to have a break. glad to hear things have calmed a bit for you
enjoy your driving lesson @Bongley
& day off @midnite01, lucky you
so sorry to hear @calypso75 I was hoping for a better result for you this cycle.
yes, stay around @Molros, it will be nice to have you hear. sorry to hear about the health issues with your relatives. congrats on your BFP! could it be twins?
speaking of twins, I just saw this article - turns out the FSH is involved so it explains why there's often a higher chance during IVF
Genes behind increased chance of having non-identical twins identified
going slowly at EDA. I got excited when I received an email from someone but they were just saying hi which was nice. at least it confirmed the message function works. I pop in every day or so apart from when I was away, but don't feel that comfortable there yet. will see how it goes. could take a while I guess. I've never been that good at small talk. and for some reason my threads don't appear in 'recent activity' link even when they've had posts. so probably flying under the radar if anyone is watching anyway. I just want to be pg again & have the healthy bub. all the waiting & out of my hands parts is hard to manage. at least when it's OE you can set the timeframe so that's one part you can control even if the result is out of your hands
@calypso75 I hated going for post AF HCG tests too. Hugs sweetie. When the dust settles let us know what your next steps are. I think some ladies here will have some ideas on meds to keep AF away if you are going to cycle again. Someone mentioned Luteal Phase defect (? @tuxcat) I think that's what I had. I ended up getting a script for crinone from my GP and upped my own dose but there are better meds than that the ladies can advise you on. Ah, but I am getting ahead of myself. For now:
