    Do you think if I take Gonal F 450 to produce one more mature follicle that might get me to the 6.5mm? Actually I could add some Clomid. That's what I did on my OE cycle and I got 2 mature eggs at EPU.
    Update: I just spoke with Warrens nurse. She's asking if I can do the above and getting back to me today. Fingers crossed.

    So...it's the same the Luv whether you use E2 or not???

    Close enough to 6.5 mm's too I reckon

    Has your lining previously responded to Clomid when growing the extra follicle???

    The only way you're going to know is to try it maybe next month and see what happens I guess???

    Have you time to do that before you Cycle again????

    @greenlady, yes my plan is 10mg Valium & 2 X panadeine forte @ 0830! I'm not particularly anxious yet. Though that will probably change tomoro morning. But I AM worried about the transfer being painful after my previous experiences whenever a catheter was put thru my cervix (HSG & saline flush)... But I'm hoping it was more the liquids that caused the extreme cramping & pain. LB last year when I told her how painful that stuff had been offered to do a quick transfer trial run.. We went into another room & she popped a catheter in and it was fine, pain free. I'm just praying it's the same tomoro. But I'll have the Valium & pan forte on board anyway regardless. And I'll be having brandy straight after!

    Question Wazza girls.. Remind me if there's anything else..

    *sex tonight
    *valium etc 1 hour before
    *brandy after transfer
    *valium again 4hours post FET
    *sex again day of FET, (my DP is a legend by the way.. He's not even put of by the disgusting crinone! )

    Anything else???

    Sounds good to me Luv!!!!

    Yep, @BlondeinBrisvegas my gut instinct was right but I also had the benefit of 7 cycles worth of stats. I don't respond to estrogen. I haven't tried Nitrodur, Neuprogen and Trental though.
    On the Gonal F and Clomid cycle my lining was 6.1mm on cd12 which was my worst actually. So the extra mature follicle/egg didn't help. Thanks for drawing my attention to that!! Sh*te. I'll call Warrens nurse back now. I'm on hold as I type.
    I'd just go for it. If I get the thumbs up today I'll book my flights and accom.

    Thanks @jazzabelle I can't do intralipids as I'm allergic to egg - but I never had a pregnancy at all during IVF cycles. My longer pregnancies (6-10) weeks were all natural & well before I knew anything about any of the support things I could have used. Since stopping all meds over a year ago I've had five chems.

    I know the Trental & Nitrodur are used for opening up your blood vessels which will maximise blood flow around your body as well as to your ovaries/uterus and lining.

    Blood flow to your lining is one of the necessary factors needed to make it grow so those two things *may* make a difference in terms of helping it to grow. One of those things that you won't know until you try. The Nupogen will suppress your immune system as you know Luv (is that for the Adenomyosis??). Oooh...I found this about Neupogen enhancing uterine lining/implantation. Just not sure if it works the same if you have it as an injection or you need to have it as a uterine wash???:

    Neupogen:
    Neupogen is a medication that causes the body to generate neutrophils, a type of white blood cell which plays and important role in the immune system. An individual may benefit from Neupogen if they have experienced multiple miscarriages or failed implantation with IVF. This medication is also useful in many cases for the purpose of improving egg quality and improving the tissues of the uterine lining. The most commonly observed adverse reaction is mild to moderate bone pain after repeated administration and local skin reactions. Neupogen is administered either in injection form or as a uterine wash.
    Neupogen is increasingly utilized for other conditions including the treatment of recurrent miscarriage and/or implantation failure. Neupogen is not yet approved or disapproved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for these conditions or diagnoses.

    Yep...I agree..Just go for it!!! It's bloody close enough to 6.5mm's!!! I don't think your FS over in CT will have a problem transferring at that measurement. He's already said he will hasn't he if I recall correctly???

    You could do IVIG if Dr M thought it a suitable substitute Luv but it's frucking expensive!!!!

    @BlondeinBrisvegas Re the Trental and Nitrodur, can't I just pleasure myself ALOT, surely that'd have the same benefits without the migraines?!!
    The Neupogen looks great. Ta heaps for the link. I bought 2 teeny tiny vials for $200 off Warren. @Summer Have you tried it?
    I have it in writing that my CT FS will transfer if I get to 6mm but Warren said not to get on the plane unless it's 6.5mm. 6.4mm is bloody close enough!!
