    Now that I have my DHEA, any tips for the newbie? Are there any common side effects I should be aware of? How did you all feel whilst taking it?


    Blossom
    These are some of the possible side effects Luv:

    Side effects. Most side effects are mild, like headache, fatigue, insomnia, and congestion. Because DHEA affects hormone levels, it can cause other symptoms. Women may have abnormal periods, acne, or mood changes. They might also take on masculine characteristics, such as facial hair or a deeper voice.

    I can tell you that they made me pretty damn moody in the beginning..there were quite a few moments of "hulking out" where I lost my sh!t at DP or fellow motorists (road rage/car park rage anybody??) until my body got used to them!!!

    They also gave me a bit of insomnia/occasional headaches. Don't worry too much about the "facial hair/masculine voice"...that's a really rare side effect. I took 75 mg's a day too.

    Good luck with your appointment too next week. I understand why you're going back. You have to do what feels right for you. Yes..definitely make sure you tell him what your terms and conditions are in respect to going forward with EPU etc.

    I don't think you can do PICSI/HA with TESA'd sperm. Couldn't when I Cycled because I tried. Don't know if things have changed since though??? My understanding is that you need mature sperm to use which TESA'd sperm isn't though I do know with PICSI they can use sperm that's been PESA'd or MESA'd.

    I wonder if IMSI would be an option?? Though there is some debate as to whether using high magnification to select the sperm before injecting into the egg gives better outcomes?? Unfortunately, options are limited with TESA'd sperm.

On one occasion I started cramping and had to sit down. My god did I feel guilty.
    Because it was 30c plus on the way back I didn't wear compression stockings and my feet and ankles blew up like a pufferfish. When I noticed all I could think about was DVT. I 'slept' with my feet elevated lastnight and it's helped abit. Anyway, there's not much I can do about it now.
    Before my transfer I asked Dr W how the 2 blasts were looking and he said "good. I'm happy to transfer them" and I said "good?" and he said "ok then, very good". And gave me a look to say, whatever you need to believe that helps you.
    Immediately post transfer he confirmed he doesn't believe in immune issues and there isn't anything that kills off embryos. Also that beside the Progynova for 10 days and Viagra for 3 there isn't anything else that can boost your lining. I asked what would happen if my lining stayed thin and he said the embryos just wouldn't stay implanted. And here's the kicker. He finished that sentiment with "we can only help 90% of woman and the other 10%"...he shrugged his shoulders. So I'm in the 10% of women with thin lining that he can't help.
    Its more than a tad hard to shake his comments.

    Well... Merry frucking Christmas to you too Mate!!! I knew he was a non-believer regarding Immune Issues so am not surprised to hear him say that. As for your lining, you had it in the ideal range before you left/upped the Progynova and added the Viagra (did you end up using the pessaries??) so don't be worrying about that either.

    If the lining was too thin to begin with, the embryo's would have a buckley's to none chance of implanting which is why Cycles get cancelled when that happens as it's a waste of embryo's and $ trying. For all his "Bah Humbug" ways, I do believe he would've cancelled you if he thought it was going to be an exercise in futility!! Take no notice Luv ok?? As far as I'm concerned, he can stick a candy cane or 2 where the sun don't shine and keep his negative hit commentary to himself!!!

    Had to LOFL you POAS already!!! Am and sending prayers to the Universe for 2 lovely lines over the weekend!!!

Are you starting next cycle or letting DHEA settle in for a couple of months? Are you doing ICSI/PICSI - our results were so much better with PICSI, but only necessary if you need ICSI of course.
    @Bongley - Glad you have a date! I'm in TWT - beta 19th (on boosters so no point in POAS - hopefully I'm not breaking the forum code here - I know you are loud and proud stick w****s ).
    @Summer - a natural conception would be a dream!
    @Tahli - hope you are traveling well.

    Baby by dust to all

    @Blossom74 don't feel bad about going back to your previous FS. I agonised over changing FS's. The opposite to you, but my mate who is seeing the same FS#1 as me, thought I was stark raving mad for changing as she loves FS#1. It's fine for us on the boards to have opinions, but it's you who has to go through it. You just do what's right for you, we are all here to support you through the journey that you choose, no matter what. Also I'm massively excited for you that you have a plan and a way forward!
    @Sue77 good luck for your fresh transfer tomorrow!
    @Tahli hoping you are home safe and sound and frosties are bunking in well.

    AFM, well actually not me, but my mate who you may recall got 3 blasts, transferred one and got a BFP to then have it go down to zero again on blood test #2. Well she got her PGD results back on the other two today. Both abnormal, one a trisomy, one missing a chromosome. Randomised results. She was really sad to get the news of course, but is thinking of cycle #6 in March after working with a naturopath for the next couple of months. So yes it's cr@p, but she has a way forward. And i think she is thinking that if cycle #6 is not the magic cycle (if she can get some to PGD test again), then it's onto DE for cycle #7.

    Hope everyone else is doing well out there. Looking forward to some POAS action in the next week or so from you gals ������

    Oh, I am sorry to hear that for you friend Luv

    the Naturopath works some magic on her and she gets lucky next Cycle

    Hello Lovelies............

    Just popping in while I have the chance to catch up with you all. It's the usual story with me but just wanted to touch base to say hello and let you know I'm still loitering on the sidelines and thinking of you all

    I'll drop by throughout the day when possible. Have a good one Lovelies!!!!

    P.S... @Charlie74 The Valium deal is what I call a "Wazza Special". He gives it to you an hr before transfer (10mg's) then you get a take home pack of 10mg's to have that night. He also encourages you to have a stiff drink/brandy too

    The Valium is taken to prevent the uterus contracting after transfer.

    Far out, some of these FS's might be smart but they have absolutely NO sense of empathy for their patients! I know it's hard but I really do think positivity goes a long way, so try and put his insensitive comments to the back of your mind for now love. Just focus on those two little embies, snuggling into your lining and making themselves a nice comfy home.

    Yeah, I guess at the end of the day luck has a lot to do with it. we get one or two good ones.
