wanabe... charging the full fee for a cancelled cycle and day surgery fees if you did not get to transfer is not right.... there is a medicare rebate for cancelled cycle prior to pickup... sounds like they have done wrong for you... I would seriously question this bill and refuse to pay it until it is settled... as that charge is illegal and they are just profitering... my clinic does not bill you the full fee for a cancelled cycle... they can only do this if you went to egg pick up...if they say thats what they charge then I would get advice from medicare or patient advocacy or AMA (australian medical association)... also ring your insurance company and tell them..as they are producing fraudulent charges....they will be the ones to refuse to pay the day surgery bill if there has been no day surgery...
and yes I definately think that the DHEA has affected things.. interesting that since I stopped it my progesterone has dropped from 3.4-1.6 and I think things are growing better... all my last cycles I stopped it with DD... So if this is a bust I am only taking 50mg a day and I will slowly reduce it 2 week prior to starting my cycle and stop altogether a few days prior to AF. with DD I did not take 75mg only 50mg and I decreased to 25mg quite quickly..wheras this time I did not.
sunny... I hope you are having a nice stress free weekend and that lining is growing well... I still think you are well on track.
Leanne...oooooh the wait for the uss... the joy of 8 weeks is that the embryo will look a little like a baby...with little legs and arms..rather than a blob...
Fortitude..woohoo for pick up on monday.. cant wait to see how you go... sounds good this time...
well after my peanut M&M gluttony yesterday.. I topped it today with 2 real coffees and bacon and eggs... by god it was great... also had a lovely walk along the beach.

Good luck with your appointment!!! Let us know how it goes in detail!!
Micca- walk, maybe even have a glass of wine. You need it honey xoxoxo
AFM: EPU confirmed as 7.30am Monday. Trigger tonight. My estrogen went up another 3000 from yesterday- so now I know why I am feeling all the nausea.

Hi Micca and Fortitude - Maybe they've charged me the full amount because I cancelled at the point were I turned up at the day surgery for the egg implantation? I only did so because they told me that my embie was only a 2 cell that had stopped growing and it only had a one in 2000 chance of implantation. I thought cancelling would save me some money!Live and learn. I paid the bill on my credit card as soon as I received it. Dont know why. I will call the surgery and raise it with them. Thanks for your comments.
Micca - Don't be discouraged. The only thing that you have been reminded of this cycle is how &*@@# tough this process. Your dream WILL happen. xxx

wanabe.. if you did the egg pick up then the cycle will be charged in full..however if they did not transfer then they should charge you that fee. If you went to day surgery for pick up then that will be in the bill....
A cancelled cycle is classed as a cycle that is cancelled prior to trigger. with no pick up. Sounds like they charged appropriately if you went to pick up.
Fort... fantastic results on the estrogen...woohoo... sounds like you will have a nice batch of eggs there...woohoo... enjoy the trigger and no more injections.....just cruise.
no wine..lol... but had a swim today which was lovely... planning to go shopping maybe tomorrow.

Micca, chin up! looks like a rollercoaster for you at present! poor thing. You missed the snowy cr*ppy weather round here the last few days, coldest day since 1968!
I have been lurking. I am day 7 after AF, doing the long down reg, cycle #2. My system took 7 weeks from the AF after the chem preg to the AF last week. I did ovulation tracking between them as I have a friend who is willing to help me out with sperm but I gave up having BT's by day 28 and no ovulation evident.
I asked my FS about DHEA at my post cycle 1 review and he said he preferred to add in 100mg aspirin and prednisolone. So trying that, though on Micca's magic mix I took asprin last cycle :-)
Good luck this week!

hilarious fort..... so true.
Ive tried a new tactic as well... since Im on 600iugonal F which is 2 injections I have split the dose... 450 at night and 150 in the morning to get a more constant level of it rather than a massive dose...should have done this the entire time. I notice on a lot of protocols with this dose they split it to 300 and 300... might ask the FS about this one for the next cycle.
goldilocks... yay for AF arriving and being back on the train. After my chemical AF took about 7 weeks to arrive and it was an anovulatory cycle ... but the next one was pretty normal after that.
Yay for some prednisone..lets hope that it makes that little bit of difference
god a day to go for me and fort.... onwards ... slept not so good last night..few nightmares.... sign of a troubled mind I guess... beautiful day on the gold coast... of course DD woke at 530am QLD time - 630am NSW time (not so bad)..
