@tjuls yeh day 9 I really really hope the levels catch up! It's such a trial and error thing. That is possible, they never really told me why they used menopur. I do like when you think out loud haha
Sorry to hear that @StephyG, I am surprised that the levels have gone down! I would have expected them to at least creep upwards a little. How strange. That said, I am no scientist like Dr @tjuls is, so I can't tell (didn't know what my levels were and didn't bother to ask to).
Hope it catches up and your cycle gets on track!
hi @tjuls bloating has ben the least of my problems, i think. ive caught the dreaded ohss. Very sore pain 😭... The only thing that works is 2 panadols and 2 nurofens.. I dont think i can ever put my body through this again. Nurse said if its severe pain she can speak to FS to arrange something e.g bloods, scan or hosp. I asked when can i feel normal again and she said when i GET MY NEXT PERIOD.. Im really confused i dont know if this pain is normal
Oh no @hopefulangel1987 😔.. I'm so sorry to hear that ohss might be setting in. can they give u something like provera to induce af? I'm not sure if they prescribe that to ohss patients but no harm in asking right? I really hope u get some relief soon hun..
@tjuls What is provera? All she said was if it gets worse to call back or pretty much suck it up and keep taking pain killers lol
I finished AF 2days ago, she said id need to wait for second AF...
Idont think I told you guys, 6 embryos made it for our frozen cycle
@hopefulangel1987 provera is a med that has progestin ( similar to our body's progesterone). I've read it's been given to women with irregular cycles to 'reset' but also to induce af when it's a BFN but no af. You have to be on it for a week I think and then coming off it brings af.
Silly me, i got the impression u havent had ur 1st bleed yet coming off stim cycle. In that case I'm not sure if taking it would be good since u want ur hormones to balance not add more in. I'm sorry it's not what u were hoping to hear.
Ladies who have had ohss, any advice for our gf @hopefulangel1987?
I'm sorry I'm no help hun.. 😕
@hopefulangel1987 I'm so sorry you're in so much pain. Id call the nurses and head for hospital. It could get worse before it gets any better. I wasn't in much pain so I rode it out and after I got AF was back to normal. It's so unpleasant, please make sure you don't put up with the pain xx
And congrats on your frosties! Xx
