    When are you getting it installed?? We're on a run of this sh!tful weather for the next 5 days or so!!!

    I see storms are starting to fire up on the radar!! Not sure what part of the GC you're on or if you're in the hinterland etc, but I reckon you'll get one for sure!!!
    I've been on BOM and the storms are passing us by! The thunder is rumbling but it is stinking in the house! Geez I wish we had air-con, unfortunately I need to work so have to be at home behind my computer with a pedestal fan full blast - doesn't quite do that job!

    @infinity888 it wasn't the vitamin supplements or DHEA / Melatonin I don't think that mucked up my thyroid - it was the "kitchen sink" approach with lots of different meds that I think sent it all out of whack. Alongside a bucket load of supps and those two hormones I was on Prednisone, Trental, Nitrodur patches, Piroxicam, Clexane, & Baby aspirin. Then painkillers because the patches gave me blinding headaches, and sleeping tablets because I had ridiculous insomnia.

    Then my stim cycles were 600iu of alternating Puregon & Menopur plus Orgalutran to stop ovulation, then hcg trigger shots every few days and Progesterone pessaries. I did four cycles with all of that stuff pretty much non-stop and got really, really sick. Not sure which particular drug affected my thyroid or whether it was just an overload and combination of everything - but I look back at pictures of myself six months ago and my whole throat and neck area was so swollen and I was very puffy and fluidy.

    So something went really wrong and it just wasn't managed properly unfortunately. I'm much, much better now and if I had more time I'd likely be doing cycles and slowly adding things in and seeing how I went, rather than loading everything all at once and not knowing which part of the protocol was knocking my thyroid out.

    If I do get the opportunity I'd like to do one low dose, minimal drug cycle to see if that yields better results as some of the ladies here have attested to

    There are also huge differences between FSs within a clinic. We had FS#1 where our chances were realistically 0% and we then have Wazza who we still have hope will get us over the line. Our clinic's figures are averages and include 20+ FSs. Couples also vary on the number of cycles and therefore the amount of tweaking that can be done to their protocol - a lot of couples give up after one cycle and some cannot afford or choose not to use all available treatments. Our first three useless cycles with FS#1 would contribute to our clinic's statsand drag them down. I also know a woman who did 26 cycles all BFN (starting in her 20s) and on her first cycle with Wazza in her 40s (27th cycle overall) she got her baby. We need FS stats, not just clinic averages.

    @Caesardust mine were week before EPU (I think 7-10 days before is recommended), then on day of EPU, and then day of ET (or day before if a Saturday at my clinic as they don't do infusions on the weekend) - then on BFP.

    So I'm starting to have second thoughts about my next DE cycle. First one was 9 retrieved, only 4 fert 2 at day 3 and none at day 5.
    My FS said on paper my donor was perfect, right age (32) perfect history, for me she is perfect also, by best friend and awesome person, we have similar physical attributes, personalities and interests. My FS is quite happy to use her again as it "might of just been a bad month"
    But I'm starting to stress already ( won't be cycling again until may)
    I feel like maybe it's all a bit to perfect! Catastrophising much?
    @MissDa can you have a minimum number of follies that you proceed to EPU with? At my clinic that will just cost the drugs... Of course it will also depend if your BF is happy to go through stimming without EPU?

    I'd wonder if you are catastrophising or grieving over the last cycle?

    @infinity888 I get really sick on the drugs too. I have other health conditions, so am used to managing medication and side effects, but Wazza's magic pharmacy can really knock you. My pharmacist was okay for me to take DHEA with thyroxine and I have those between 4-5am. I then take any of the other AM drugs with breakfast - it's generally recommended that CoQ10 be taken in the morning as it can disturb sleep. During TWW some meds are 4 times a day. Prednisone needs to be with food in morning, so I have it with breakfast. I take as much as I can at night, but have found I need 4/day medication organiser. I do have PCO/endo/aden, so that might increase drugs I need. Good luck.

    So in that case I've had mine much too early. I think it's because they would've assumed I would have a transfer on day 18-20.

    @Caesardust mine was done on day 6 (was supposed to be day 7 but they brought it forward, cant remember why now) and on BFP the day after my 7 week scan. I thought day 6 seemed early as my FET wasn't until day 23 or 24, I did mention it to the nurses and they said I might need to go in for another (before transfer) but they didn't get me in.
