@Chiefsgirl - I would say yes to quality even though I wasn't successful. My first round I got 1 egg out of 4 follies but seconds I got 7 out 9. I came so close - just a single chromosome out - very disappointing.
I think the 10,000 iu pregnyl trigger made a difference too. That's a Dr Sher thing as well.
i was lucky my FS was willing to give it a go as they don't seem as open to it in Aus.
I will ill keep you posted on the results this time - I've also added in ubiquinol and inositol for quality.

Nereid, hello and welcome!
Bertie, I've long since stopped contributing to the monthly (and lots of other) threads too, it just seems a bit pointless. Good luck for your upcoming FET
Chiefsgirl, I'm sorry to hear about your last banking cycle. I hope you get better results this time
Jem, hope the AACEP works its magic this time too
leyshoja, looking forward to hearing more about your DE cycle.
Faith, hope the scratch has been done and you are recovering well.
Petal & Bongley, will be thinking of you both for your next cycles.
Em, BiB, Kelly and anyone else I've forgotten
AFM - I had a major "lose my marbles" episode last week, that involved a lot of screaming/ yelling, tears and a huge adult tantrum. I feel so bad because I was so out of control that part of it got directed at DD, and it wasn't her fault at all. I managed to get it back together with a bit of counselling at the clinic, and getting back into my normal routine. I've even started doing non-TTC things again and enrolled in a few long overdue work related courses.
So DH wants me to wait until early next year before doing any more transfers. I'll be reading and cheering all of you along, though I probably won't have much to post.

I think we can all relate @SpringRain. I have had 4 months off and I think DH needed the rest as much as me. I have had many a meltdown (including crying and yelling).
AFM I had my clinic appointment to plan the next cycle today as well as my endo scratch. The clinic appointment went well but the first dissapointment was that there is no change to the meds. I'm stuck on Gonal F. It was supposed to be half of what I had before (300) but it's only down to 250. I am already thinking that this cycle will be a failure. There has been little change to what we did last time. The scratch did not go well. I had to lie down for 20 minutes after nearly passing out. Apparently it's not uncommon

Faith - I had the same experience with my scratch, was my first one and I had no idea it was going to hurt so much. I didn't come close to passing out but it was pretty evil. Sorry you're not happy with the plan for your next cycle - that's the worst feeling. Did you not feel comfortable raising it with your doc?

@Kelly70 The last time I went to see the FS I asked if there were any supplements I should take. Well, that was a mistake. The doc frowned and said there was no evidence that any supplements help and not to bother with them. It was the same when I asked about other alternative therapies. Instant shutdown. I figured that questioning him about the stims was just going to cheese him off. There's something about having someone stick needles into your ovaries that makes me not want to annoy them. I will be stalking on the other thread to see how you go on the elonva. I heard from another hubber that the elonva worked for her (I think she got 16 eggs)! Maybe if this round is a no go I will talk to the doc about it anyway. Incur the wrath. Can't be worse than the scratch!

Yes I had a similar response re supplements from my old FS - I wss only started on melatonin shortly before my third cycle with them. New FS Lynn B couldn't believe I hadn't been on it from the start. She also said q10 very important. Dhea she said they'd had high hopes for it initially but that it hadn't quite shown the results they'd expected. When I asked my old FS about dhea when starting my first cycle with her she said, oh I've heard of it I think, but that was all she had for me. Any chance you can switch to a new FS? Easier said than done I know.
Wow 16 eggs, she must have had good amh. With my almost non existent amh, I really have no clue if it will help any. I will be super nervous for Friday's scan.

Wow. I've never had an endo scratch thankfully. They sound terrible !!
I have a small update on my donor cycle - donor has done 1 previous cycle at the beginning of this year, they only retrieved 3 eggs !! and no pregnancy resulted. Eek, this stresses me a LOT. The nurse told me that she believed they had only been going for a small amount of eggs on that cycle - why on earth would you go for small numbers ??? Doesnt make sense to me
Suddenly I'm stressing about this cycle. I know its all a big gamble, but I think I have gotten my hopes up and I should know better than that by now.

leyshoja aw gee, I can understand why you are stressed. You have a lot riding on this cycle. I hope they can get more eggs this time around. Perhaps they were playing it safe as she is young (I assume)?
So gals, I have an endo scratch sometime in the next few weeks. Any tips on how to handle it? Paracetamol and codeine by the sound of it?
