Lovlies, someone posted on another thread here that Vit E is great for lining but damaging to eggs, Don't use for stim and as soon as eggs collected then take high dose.
Now I'm really frukin worried, as I've been taking Vit E on all of my cycles, I thought it was good for both?
I'm going for my cd9 scan today & will ask my nurse but I'm really freaking out now
Precious40 congrats, sounds like a good healthy sticky bean, looks like this is FINALLY the one for you.
Welcome back @Maxwellsmum I hope you can locate some meds cheaply. I think its very hard when a donor round fails, took me three FETs but lining issues really suck. XXX
@Maxwellsmum - I will have a look in my fridge later and see if I have any Gonal f left over. I know there is a box of stuff at the back of the fridge but it might just be left over ovidrel. If I have some Gonal f you can have it.
@tegs26 ahhhhh isn't it the most amazing place!!! You get so lost in all the little alleyways. Enjoy!
@Maxwellsmum so sorry you are in a bad way, its so frustrating especially when you think moving to donor eggs will be easier (that's where my heads at!!!). I really think this is just a hurdle and you WILL get there, but I understand your anger and sadness at it all, it really is frucking unfair, theres no two ways about it. Sending you a huge hug, vent as much asa you need to if it helps you get it out. I too have a little bit of gonal f in two pens in the fridge but not sure it would be enough and the refrigeration element is kind of tricky in sending it to anyone. Can definitely look into it if you need it.
@skye76 I wouldn't get too wound up about this kind of talk, people say all kinds of things, Ive never heard vitamin E to be bad for eggs, and always took it which I think did improve my lining but who knows. Im pretty sure its in all the pre-conception vitamins so I wouldnt think there was any major issues with it. Not worth worrying about IMO.
Thanks for the offers of gonal f. I will hopefully hear today from the clinic and find out what Warren's next plan is so will let you know if he decides I need to use the gonal f.
@skye76 I think it should be okay I thought that vitamin E was one of the supplements on Warren's stim cycle vitamin list. I might be wrong though it has been a while since I stimmed but the list is on the wazza thread #1 at the start of the thread.
I think it was me who posted about stopping vit e 1000 once you get a BFP as it has been linked to heart problems in babies. That was LBs advice. I'd get your own FS to clarify. @tegs26 Pregnant and in amazing Venice! Most jealous!! My tip for Venice...because it's so expensive live on gelato instead of real meals. Challenge yourself to try 6 new flavours a day. It's worth it!!
