@pingc383 - When you have an appointment wit Warren hun just run it all by him and see what he says my embryos usually have griw out until day 6 anyway, we are all indivudual cases, just see what he says. Yes my intralipids are booked in for next Friday and hopefully when I see Charlotte on Saturday I will get the go ahead to start meds. Good luck hun hopefully its a good cycle for you x
@pingc383 yeah I was surprised it came so quickly but happy the busty cycle is over!
Have you heard from Dr M?
@Grace1 yay cycle buddies, maybe we will go up around the same time!
@mummymaybe i know! Honestly I don't think I will meet another doc who does scan at 5/6am, how lucky I am to have him as my fs. Good luck with EPU and a decent number of good quality eggs!
@Heyside ohhh is that due to lucrin? I think I won't be asked to go anywhere near lucrin again lol. How are you going hun?
I will be flying up for scratch and flush around mid Nov.
Hi to everyone else
@Btae - Yes hun the lucrin acts by shutting your ovaries off therefore making you ovulate and bringing on af, the only way yo keep af away is by adding in a truck load of progesterone if you go to transfer. Unfortunately I have to use it a lot as I am usually at risk of over stimulation. Its worked well for you this time tnough as its allowed you to get started again asap. Not long to wait until mid Nov hope it comes around quick for you.
@mummymaybe - I love the early appointments even if it does mean I sometimes have to leave house at 4am to get there 😪. Had to laugh the other day my appointment for Saturday is 6.45 and DH's response was gosh thats early where as I giggled and said I thought that was late in comparison to my 5.30 appointments haha!!!
Mine is at 5:10!!! I do like the early appointments but hubby hates them. He is threatening to wear his pjs.
Just a quick update - We've been encouraged to do another banking cycle at my old clinic before testing day 1 embies we have as they suspect due to my age that we won't get any normals (they reckon on average 1/8 is normal, and less as you get older)... And we've only got 7 out of three cycles (our fertilisation rates dropped terribly in the past year maybe due to using frozen soerm )
So looks like might not stim with Charlotte til next year (unless we squeeze in one in Dec before they go on leave)... Little sad about that today, partly as the clock is ticking and also that will cost more in new year as threshold starts again and want to see what results their cocktail will bring!
I'm going be sneaky with my meds and give myself bigger doses (since Charlotte prescribed 600 units and I've only been on 300). If we do decide to proceed I will likely start in next couple days...antagonist cycle...
