What ratbags on here are calling me out @MissTilly and @VickyP ?? Got the email note you tagged this Billie goat. I am not even going to attempt to read and catch up. I still get fed through info from some spies I planted in here. So congrats to the graduates with success. Always here to support @tjuls and @LillyM xx
And news from me, well we are pregnant naturally..... Bahahahaha as if! My cycles are chopping and changing still from Feb cycle. I was at Primary only 2wks ago with my final BT for my blood count and I am fully recovered from the blood loss. I believe iron tablets, steak, greens and red wine were the key. I went from a blood count of 97 and now in May I have a count of 132! Better than what I had before IVF.
I learnt from this thread that even to get to IVF can be a massive journey. Then once it starts it can bring your dream to reality, or your fight may be a little longer than others. But everyone has shared the same pain.
Im still around, still lost, but still dreaming..xx

Oh wow, so so nice to hear from you @MissTilly and @Billie2!
Congrats on being halfway there @MissTilly, the cake idea is awesome! Wished I was that creative!
Those blood count numbers are looking awesome @Billie2, it's great to know that you are back to a healthy state and recovered!
Sorry to hear about your experience @Cassidy. I hope you get some insights when you speak to your FS.
Don't worry about the venting / rant @OneOfTheseDays! That's what we are here for! It's amazing what we can learn from each other just from sharing and ranting! I do hope you get answers from them tomorrow - keep us updated? We will be eagerly waiting for TWW news if you are willing to share.
Oh, @hopefulangel1987, how are you feeling hun? Did you get yourself checked? Is the pain now gone? Thinking of you!
Awesome roll call as usual @tjuls. My EDD is 21 Dec 2016.

I've locked my next appt with Dr George next week to discuss our 4th fresh cycle...
I'm investigating further things we could try to boost the chances of the miserable poor responder that I am...
Been looking into estrogen priming, and also DHEA... anyone tried those or heard of those? Been reading in others forums but I'm finding different opinions... got me a bit lost.
Wondering if Primary is open to those things...
Also I've heard of assisted hatching... not sure if Primary does that either....
Planning on asking questions at my appointment but any inputs from you ladies would be appreciated! .... Dr@Tjuls?
@Billie2 - definitely a subject you might be interested in I suppose...
Will hopefully have some answers soon and will update X

Id never use aspirin again, I couldn't chance it, but Id like more info about lining.
And what else can men take? Menevit is the usual but anyones husband on something else?
And yes, Id kill for another go, but have to plan my marketing on DH before I do so. 😣

A happy update from me Just called Primary in Melbourne and by chance Dr Nick was there and able to call me back straight away. He was happy to arrange the prescription I was waiting on and confirmed that what we had agreed on wasn't written in my treatment protocol for some reason but he's fixed it now.
For those that have also questioned the 1x crinone a day vs 2 - he said the TGA has recommended that the dose only needs to be one, but when I said I was more comfortable with twice daily (as I was on a lot more with my previous specialist) he said 'you can't overdose on it, so if you have enough, I'm fine with that'. @LillyM - I wouldn't be classified as a poor responder, but my first cycle i had a lot of eggs that were terrible quality (17 collected with only 2 fertilized which were frozen at day 3 - a long story for another day!). That cycle I was on Gonal F/Orgalutran and Pregnyl Trigger - and not much else to support. The next 2 stim cycles I down regulated with the Pill (first one also included Syneral), then stimmed with Menopur (one triggered with Pregnyl, the other Ovedril). Both these cycles were supported with Melatonin, CoQ10, Vit E and the usual prenatal/multi's. I got less eggs, but way better quality and higher fert rate.

@billie2, I've added your questions onto my list. You do know that Dr G. is not a big fan of questions asked right, so even though I will not move until she does answer, don't expect productive informative answers... most of the time the best I get is vague answers that are besides the point. So frustrating. Drives DF nuts lol. But I'll push.
@OneOfTheseDays, thanks for the interesting info.
I've been on: Prenatal/multi's, Maca, CoQ10, Royal Jelly to name a few.
Does it help? No idea. Does it make me feel better because I'm kinda "doing something"? Yep. So I keep going.
DF has been taking: Multi's, acid folic, zinc, CoQ10, fish oil and now starting maca so at least we're horny together bahahaha.
DHEA and Melatonin (the proper one), are not sold over the counter though, need a prescription for those. So I'm planning on asking as I'm pretty sure it can't hurt. Need to take those for 3 to 4 months for getting the effects so I might as well start asap. :P
