Well I just wasted $400 on a follicle scan cos I had already ovulated.. Grr and my lining on ovulation day, being today, was 7mm. She did say that even tho I ovulated, she couldn't find the follicle i ovulated from and there wasn't a follicle with the usual shape and sound it normally has if I had ovulated from it.. Which means I'm thoroughly confused and now I'm wondering if I'm firing blanks!
No explanation from nurse why my lining is not too good. I'm to increase Progynova to 8mg per day and then re scan Thursday, I hope it grows!!
@Flower78 how annoying that happened to me last cycle too but my lining was much lower (started at 4mm and dropped to 2mm) I am on Vitamin E and Viagra pessaries to help this time. Vitamin E is worth a shot and easy to get- I take it morning and night but stop day of transfer. Hopefully your lining will boost up soon.
AFM I have my next blood and scan on Wednesday which means everything is tracking as it should. Fingers crossed my lining us behaving unlike last time!
Well at least I'm not the only one having lining issues @Flower78. My FS himself phoned me this afternoon and mine is 6.3mm.
He gave me the option of attempting transfer tomorrow, with the risk of it failing (which I guess it can regardless of lining), or freeze all with the risks that freezing and thawing carries for the embies. I opted to attempt transfer since I should have a couple of good embies (I'll find out again tomorrow).
He said his preference would be to attempt the transfer as I may have a naturally thin lining, but of course it was my decision. He also said that because I've successfully carried a pregnancy before to term that that works in my favour!
Of course I was upset but this fertility game is full of twists and turns as I've worked out. I have a beautiful acupuncturist who was seeing at the time I got this call and she's going to try a few new things for next time if this cycle fails...which it won't!!! I'm optimistic!!!
How much Vitamin E @julianicholson? I will try it! Hope your lining is good this time.
@jess8383 I've heard stories of people getting pregnant on a thinner lining too so I hope it works for you! I'm hoping it's just thin because I had heavy AF after the scratch and it's all nice new lining building up now. Gotta keep positive!
@Flower78 I take 500mg twice a day (1tablet morning, 1 at night) apparently pomegranate juice is meant to help too, I haven't tried that though. Both my FS and acupuncturist suggested vitamin E.
@jess8383 good luck with everything, at the end of the day if your FS is happy to go ahead then I always feel more comfortable.
@Ashjay sorry about your BFN it sucks. We have 3 embryos left and we are considering doing a double next time. We are just worried about what might happen to me if they both stick as I have recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease... Single pregnancy is ideal for us but double is tempting. Fingers crossed this cycle works and we don't have to think about it for a while...
@jess8383 good luck with your transfer, being optimistic helps in my book!
@Flower78 good luck getting your lining thickening!!
@pingc383 sorry about your confusing scan! Why is nothing straight forward!
@Ashjay sorry about your BFN, fingers crossed for your next cycle!
AFM, I've got my first of my 4 Ovidrel boosters tomorrow, just have to remember to do it!
Hi Ladies, stimmed for the time last night for this new cycle. I am on 137.5 of Gonal F. Fingers crossed this is the lucky month for each of us!
