I usually get some breakouts, but not many.. I do have some big pimples I don't usually get, but it could also be stress.. It's not that bad, they only last about 4 days and go... But I have one in the middle of my nose that's huge
But in any case I'd look into it further. There's other tests you can have done - bloods. Perhaps see if you can have some further tests done? The ultimate test is a biopsy of your intestine that shows damage to the vili.
The only thing you can do about it long term is to have a gluten free diet. But the testing needs to be done while you are still eating gluten. Catch 22 there. I've looked into it a lot myself, so can find out more if need to.
I'm gluten free but because I am sensitive to it. Gluten is a very hard part of several grains to digest, it's the part that makes dough stretchy. If we are coeliac or sensitive to it or have any digestive issues then put body starts attacking itself, the lining of the intestines where all our nutrients are absorbed. Coeliacs usually have bowel issues, loose weight etc.
I've learnt to go without and don't feel I'm missing out most of the time as make delicious replacements. Talk more soon.
I'm intrigued about the other result too - and that its increased apparently due to stims.
-175iu Gonal F
-Cetrotide blocker injection (1x Needle a day)
-Prednisolone 10mg from CD8, which is then increased to 25mg day of EPU (although I'm following Dr M's recommendation on that which was 20mg from CD1 before moving to 25mg after EPU.
and tomorrow I will be adding Luveris (which I had never heard of until today) as it seems as though the blocker (to stop me from ovulating) is working a little too well as my LH levels are a bit low. So apparently Luveris is supposed to help with this...
I must say, Dr Gee has certainly looked at my results in a way that no other FS has. I'm so impressed that they even picked up on that.
I'm thinking if all continues to go well (as in, doesn't get cancelled on me - because we all know what IVF is like!) EPU will be early next week. I hope so because i'm already feeling full!
I was going to go with Dr Gee, but then I got an appointment with Wazza and felt he knew the protocol for older women better than Dr Gee, otherwise she was going to be the fs I chose..
Good luck hun, I hope the protocol yields a lot of good quality eggs!!!
@pingc383 and @ange1111 I've got the same gene for celiac disease and I consulted with my GP who said only 1 in 30 people with that gene have celiac disease and if I want to be sure I should get the biopsy. I chose the other option and just stayed off gluten as I also have endometriosis and gluten causes inflammation in the body. It was initially very difficult for me as so many foods have hidden gluten in them but now I'm more comfortable with the new eating habits. I love buckwheat pancakes and crepes and rice is my all time favourite
Hi lovelies, for those of you that took Neupogen/Filgrastim with your stim cycle for egg quality, can you tell me what dose you were put on? For my upcoming cycle I have been give a dose of 0.5mcg/kg of body weight which comes out to be 26 mcg per day. My other FS thinks it's a very low dose and recommends 60 mcg per day for egg quality. I am confused about who to listen to and seeking info here. TIA
Pregnant for the first-time?
