@Mongol i do acupuncture i believe it has assisted me with lining and egg quality for the little eggs i was getting.
@Mongol I tried chinese herbs and acupuncture but found they didn't help me. I have endometriosis and adenomyosis though so I think only conventional treatments of surgery and drugs were going to help.
@Mongol Im so sorry. Im happy to see you are taking charge and looking to design your own protocol. Im at a "homebrand" clinic, and we do BT's day 1, then 2-3 more before EPU.. Plus 2-3 scans as well. Id be demanding that much attention at least. Thats a late trigger with EPU CD15? Our clinic seems to pull eggs by CD12 average from what Ive seen from others at the clinic. You seem to stim longer. I too was on Luveris but it was added 3rd round and was my best cycle. I hope you find a golden protocol, that leads to the golden everything else xx
In saying all that we react differently to the protocols. Id be asking if they pull ALL eggs or only a percentage. LillyM and I have a FS that pull 50% or so. But my FS has never been on duty the day Ive had EPU, so Ive had amazing egg hunter FS's who get more than predicted.
We had an IVF fight tonight. We aren't even in a cycle ffs. I think the lack of knowledge & support for the male element (Im peeeeed off so thats what Im calling him) is pushed on us. We have never done a FET and he is freaking out he is not needed. Tried to explain he did a good job and he has days off but its not sinking in.
Do you know if I can take Inofolic if I don't have PCOS but have impaired glucose tolerance? I just googled and read about this product and it sounds beneficial.
@Billie2 thanks hun, I figured what's done is done, I can't change it so better move forward.
I did ask my nurse to do BT earlier but she said even day 9 is too early! I was like huh? My last clinic did bloods at the start of the cycle and then every other day towards the end. And this time (new clinic, new FS, new city) I only had 2 BTs and scans throughout my stim cycle. I found them to be too casual and not really realising how important this is for me. It costs a lot of money and theres lots of pain involved. I'm definitely switching FS and have an appointment booked in with my new FS (I saw him last month but had already started stimming by then).
Not sure what's the optimum time/day for EPU but that's something I'll ask my FS. Did your FS add Luveris after monitoring your LH levels? Mine added just because I enquired about it. In fact his rooms asked me 'what do you want to do'? I said ummm I don't know that's why I'm asking the doctor! And they said ok take it.
Thanks, I'll ask them what percentage of eggs do they pull. I'm surprised that I had a lot more mature follicles present at the last scan than the number of eggs retrieved.
Oh hun sounds like you're having to deal with a lot more than drugs and IVF. Hang in there and keep explaining, it will eventually sink in.
Mongol but I'm not sure... Impaired glucose tolerance is common with PCOS, so from that perspective I imagine Inofolic is safe. I also have endo and aden, so it's fine with those conditions. It's hard to know. It would be good if you could see Wazza or Charlotte...
@Mongol im a poor responder so i needed all the eggs from follies i could. I was usually on elonva then topping up with menopur last cycle 450. I usually only have 1 scan on about day 7 but i trust my fs. I usually start orgultran about then as well. I usually do double trigger to mature follies. I was getting 100 percent maturity rate which was good.

Good morning everyone!
I finally got an email back from the clinic in relation to my donor - it turns out she has had 4 successful cycles resulting in real live squishy babies, so I am feeling super relieved...
Now I'm just waiting, waiting for a treatment plan so we can book things.
So hard watching the accommodation options disappear and the flights going up, up up @tuxcat - what an exciting time for you.. I'm following closely! @BlondeinBrisvegas thank you for that AMAZING list of supplements! Going shopping today. @Caesardust - been thinking of you and hope you are feeling ok X
