It's good to hear about your experience with acupuncture and Chinese herbs @tjuls. I've had mixed results as well but then I ran into a friend's friend and she was raving about Lily Liu - how she is Sydney's baby maker and that she knows so many people who have fallen pregnant after seeing her etc 🤔
Around CD10, my LH:FSH ratio was 1:8 and it was 0:4 by CD16. Acupuncturist and her GP are torn as to whether I ovulated! Hmmm...

@tjuls - thanks for the roll call Beta is supposed to be for Monday the 13th, but it's a public holiday, so I'm not sure if that matters? Of course, I'm secretly hoping it does and they push it forward to next Friday, but that would only be 9dp5dt - do they even do beta tests that early? I might POAS that day anyway - not decided yet.
@Worryingalot81 - nice to be PUPO with you you are a couple of days ahead of me....is the TWW driving you as nuts as it is with me? I'm only 3dp5dt and I'm already going crazy.....For what it's worth, I've been a little crampy too, but I find the feeling reassuring - same with the heavy boobs.

Sorry @tjuls, I just saw your second post to me. Yes, I've had my suspicions on the TCM as my surgery in Oct cleared out all endo (Dr Lamaro is one of the best surgeons in this field and advised me that only 7% of his patients with stage 4 experience endo again) and just 5 months later, it's back. That's why I went a bit crazy at my acupuncturist. She argues that her herbs have nothing to do with it and it only supports my body - even when I questioned how it actually supports as it drastically changes my hormone levels in order for me to ovulate earlier. She admitted that her acupuncture itself does nothing but relaxes you so if I wanted, I could skip the acupuncture and just do herbs. To be honest, I'm only with her this cycle to clear my cysts and monitor my bloods because my regular GP and Primary won't do it 😉

Yes @Mimimoo.. lily Liu seems to have a good reputation but I dont know hun... speaks volume if ur endo was cleared and now it's back in just 5 mnths! Can u get a second opinion from someone else? Have you spoken to Dr L about the cysts?
It's such a shame that Primary doesn't follow up or investigate on patients with abnormal baseline hormones. Hate sounding like a broken record, but I guess that's why they're low cost.
Are u currently on herbs with Vitex?

Just read ur post re: ur fsh and LH ratio. And I dont think ovulated on cd10. I would expect the LH to be alot higher if u were ovulating..
I'll use my case as an example.
I checked my BT this cycle at cd19 when opks from cd13 kept indicating no surge.
My BT results in cd19:
FSH - 30.4 IU/L
LH - 101.1 IU/L
That makes my FSH :LH ratio at 1: 3.3 Had ovulation pain that afternoon.
Isn't it reassuring that the acu and the Gp dont know if u ovulated or not? 😄

We we are on a roll with the BFP's!!!!!
beta last Tuesday was at 37.. Doctor said everything is looking ok but it will be weekly blood tests until my hcg hits 0-2.
feeling pretty good! The bleeding is no fun! Sorry for TMI but those clots... Omg.. It's an experience to say the least!!
Im going to make my appointment to see the specialist at Primary and start getting everything ready for the next stim, having three failed transfers I may even talk to him about the possibility of transferring two.
Have any other ladies transferred two? Just curious to know what the circumstances were behind it (when they may think it's a good vs bad idea)
sorry i I have been gone... My mother in law is here from overseas

That's fantastic to hear @MrsSingh :miliedance:
Gosh I got a bit of clots from last cycle.. ewww.. so I can't imagine the clots after a termination
I hope the FS will allow u to transfer 2. I can't comment on it because I've always had the 1 et. Other ladies can comment.
Does that mean u dont have to wait til September to start cycling again ?
Is MIL staying for very long? Does she know about ur ivf journey?
