@Blossom74 Monash's was $500 when I had to cancel because I only had one follicle. I'm not sure what other clinics charge I'm afraid. $500 was 'good value' actually because that included all the meds for the cycle too.

Hi goils, @Blossom74 yes I would have thought there would be a minimum follicle number that the clinic would expect before proceeding.
So I had my bloods and scan today, my lining was 7mm which is fine (their minimum is 6 too) but my largest follicle was only sixteen. Up 3 mm from 5 days ago! All the other follicles seem to have shrunk back. So I'm peeved that I'm not triggering tonight and I'm not sure how long this will take and I'm running out of drugs (don't want to have to pay for more!). Ah well. Come on lone ranger, fatten up.
good luck everyone

Tahli, that is a lot to think about !!!
I'm concerned that you are not starting your PIO. You are supposed to start that on 'ovulation day' so at a 5 day transfer you have a 5 day lining. I thought this was pretty critical ? I could be wrong, and maybe someone else has more information, but I'm worried that you shouldn't be leaving it that long to start it.

Refresh my poor memory @Bongley, are you triggering for EPU or triggering ovulation for a frozen transfer?
If you are looking at EPU, would you consider it if there was only 1 follie?
I know that sounds like a stupid question, but it's something I've been thinking about a lot lately. As you all know my first cycle I only produced 1 follie and a single egg which failed to fertilise. I felt like the whole cycle was a waste of time. My second one, I had 3 follies and 3 eggs, 2 of which fertilsed. I had a fresh and later a frozen transfer - ie: Two shots, if you will, to get pregnant from that cycle.
In my mind I think of 3 as the minimum I would like to pick up. I fully appreciate though that I am lucky to get 3, and my FS did suggest to me that I should proceed with 1 at pickup if that's all there was, lest it be the elusive 'last one.'
I feel like I still have more eggs in me yet! The two 'practise cycles' I did (I took a low dose Clomid only) saw me make 6 and 7 follies respectively, albeit not up to size. It didn't really matter though as I only needed to ovulate in order to be prepared to accept my frosty. But in the back of my mind I thought "Well, I'm sure they could have given me other drugs to extend the growing time for the other follies...."

@Blossom74 Well within your rights to both ask the FS what their stance is on cancelling an EPU due to low follicle numbers & what that number is & to inform them that you'd want the option of cancellling if you had less than ×-amount of follicles.
Good luck at your appoint tomorrow & have a beautiful day off doing whatever the hell you please!!!😁👍

Julie, just a thought....
Is there the opportunity in your house for you to swap your current bedroom for a larger room?
Our master bedroom is smaller than our spare bedroom due to there being bigger cupboards in the master. But if we needed extra space at a push, we could easily just swap rooms.

Thanks @BIB At the moment 'whatever the hell I please' seems to be trawling through BH, but I'm sure I'll move on in due course!
Might even start compiling a list of stuff I need for the Christmas baking. Oh, and I have to do my nails this weekend, so I'll scope out some pretty nail designs for that too.
Oh, the opportunities! I don't have enough time!
