munchkin14 and sorry to hear about your 2 cancellations. Such a big disappointment when it's your main focus and you have invested so much energy and hope in it! For me estrogen was >8000 by day 6 and clinic was not happy to continue. I didn't think it was that high but apparently they never get good results if it climbs that high that early. I'll be on a lower dose this time (100 instead of 150) fingers crossed it works!
Damn you AF showed up right on time. Oh well, no natural miracle for us. At least now I can focus on getting prepared this cycle for a transfer in the next.
Nettz >8000 on day 6 does seem very high! I was 10,000 at the last BT before collection & I got 33 eggs! So I can imagine that if they had of let u continue it could have been worse (OHSS)
When will you be starting again?
Hi all, Hope you all don't mind me barging in this thread. I got my first ivf cancelled today as only one mature follicle was found. So I will be starting my second ivf cycle in Nov/Dec 2016.
Looking forward to sharing this journey with you all.
I *should* be starting next week but will depend on when AF turns up...FS put me back on the pill to settle everything down after last cycle (which I was not too happy about) and I can't remember anymore how many days past stopping AF used to come when I was on the pill. Last day of pill is Friday. Short version, hopefully CD1 on Monday! if all goes well that would mean EPU beginning of Nov but I'm trying not to think that far ahead. I am treading with much more caution this time due to the disappointment of last time
Hi ladies, CD1 for me today! It's my first AF after a mc in September at 9 weeks. If on Saturdaythe HCG is out of my system and the clot that was still there post surgery is gone, I'll begin injections Monday! We have 3 pgs tested embryos so hopefully we are able to transfer one in Nov. I often have thin lining so I'm nervous about the small amount of drugs I'm on...hoping they'll be enough to plump up my lining. Have been going to acupuncture the last three weeks too so hopefully that helps.
Good luck everyone xx
I get my scan and bloods today to determine if I'm in for this cycle. Fingers crossed the clot is passed from the mc and my HCG is 0, otherwise I don't think we'll be able to fit in another cycle this year as we're travelling NZ for Christmas (with all our spare cash ) Jokes... DH is from NZ so we do it every second year which we love. Just money's a bit tight, you all understand.
