    Hi @pingc383 - my clinic's protocol is that hubby 'needs to ejaculate - not through intercourse' the same night as I do trigger which means the sample he supplied for fertilisation on the day of EPU was 36 hours old. We were also told to abstain from intercourse from about 10 days before EPU I think (I must admit, we didn't really follow that instruction though!). I think it's just being overly cautious in case any eggs pop.

    Ladies, with respect to intercourse and getting a good fresh batch on day of EPU, when would you say is the best time to cease intercourse? How many days before EPU? I asked the nurses and they said there are no rules.. I find that hard to believe. What r your thoughts?

    @nattie84 - Great that you can get started hun, hope you get lots of embies to test and the wait will be worth it to know you have PGD normals, we do the testing too but this cycle I will put an embryo from my last cycle while we test any new embryos.
    @pingc383 - Our old clinic use to say to abstain from intercourse for 3-5 days before giving a sample for ivf. Warren my current fs wasn't concerned about this last cycle with us doing icsi but we have decided to stick to this rule ourselves. As for your estrogen levels hun this is where it gets complicated with the number of follicles and varying sizes I am not sure how they work it out from here, can you ask your clinic I find they usually like to explain things like this?
    @positive vibes - Great result at EPU hun hope you get a great fert result. If you dont feel good for work hun definitely take some time off, I have to say every EPU has been different for me, follow what your body is telling you. Hope you recover soon x

    No I've never had any symptoms like this with puregon. I'm feeling a bit bloated and am on the toilet quite a bit...which is a change as I'm usually clogged up. Think Menopur can cause diarrhea from what I've read. Not quite there yet. Hopefully it settles.
    Lucky I'm not in class for this cycle.

    So I had my EPU and we got 33 eggs, find out today how many fertilized. Feeling incredibly sore and finding it hard to walk, much worse then last time. Hopefully it passes. Hope everyone is going well

    @lotsathoughts - I googled after uou saying about the gut issues on menapur as I hadn't heard of that, looks like I best watch out for the issue myself. Hope it eases for you and yes definitely good news you are not in class.
    @babypanda - Wow what a good haul hun, hoping for amazing fert results today. Hope you feel better soon, on my last cycle with 29 eggs I felt just like you bloated and sore, actually looked visabably pregnant but I never got OHSS it doesn't hapoen to everyone but obviously watch out for the signs just in case.

    @pingc383 - OHSS happens after EPU hun the empty follicles fill up with water causing bloating nausea and sometimes difficulty in breathing. Hcg can make the symptoms worse so sometimes a different trigger is used, obviously if you become pregnant the natural hcg will make things worse.
