    Tammy88 that's great news glad things are moving along for you.
    I was hoping to get an embaby frozen as it seems like your body gets a little extra help for 10-12 weeks. I figured anything would help my body catch up by then the placenta takes care of majority of hormones.

    What's the next stage for you guys? Hope you are able to try again xx

    Hello everyone I'm new too to IVF. Started stimming on Tuesday. I am using synarel too and my AMH is 5.2 and I'm in early 40s. I was told my eggs aren't as good, so very worried how this cycle will go.. I'm on 450 Gonal f and Luveris, but synarel made my period late and I'm worried that I was over suppressed when I started.. Very worried.. Prior to choosing my FS, I saw Dr Lok at Genea and he was very rude and told me IVF can damage eggs in the process and I should do iui..... So many differing opinions... I really just want to pull my hair out..

    Default First time IVF/ICSI October 2016

    Hi #fairyfloss7676
    How is your treatment cycle going so far? What type of cycle have they got you on? I am doing a flare cycle, so had first lot of bloods and ultrasound on day 9 then every second day till they where happy with the follies and also the thickness of my lining as it has been to thin.
    I was on syneral spray & prednisolone tablet morning and night, melatonin, inositol, elevit, cardiorin, puregon injections and estrogen pessaries at night.
    Did my overdril trigger injection on Thursday and egg collection was on Friday. They got 7 follies and we where doing ICSI so out of the 7 we ended up with four successfully fertilise, last update was on yesterday which was day 3 and all four where still alive and doing really well. They like them to be between 6-8 cells and had 1x7 cell, 2x8 cells and 1x9 cell so am happy with that! Our egg transfer is tomorrow lunch time but nervous because I don't get another update from the embryologist until tomorrow morning so am anxious about how our little eggys are.....
    since egg collection I have stopped syneral spray, melatonin and inositol. Still taking cardiprin, prednisolone, elevit, estrogen pessaries as well as progesterone pessaries which I have to take both pessaries morning and night which is slightly unpleasant but hey what ever helps!!

    Hope everything is going well for you

    Hey Hun, unfortunately things aren't going too well for me. I've been on synarel for 3 weeks, so I am very over suppressed.. My ovaries are pretty much asleep and difficult to arouse.. I had 5 follicles a week ago that were 8mm and now after 7 days of stimming they are only 9mm!!!!!!
    I'm worried there will be a cancellation of the cycle.. My next scan is on Saturday so I'll know more then.
    They have me on a long down reg cycle, where they give me synarel after ovulation and then start me on 450 of Gonal f on day 3 of my period..
    Those cell numbers on day 3 sound great! Do any of them have some fragmentation? If not, you're in with an excellent chance!! You should be very happy with that!
    Wishing you all the best for your transfer today! I am on the same things as you, but haven't started progesterone yet because I may not have a transfer if my 5 follicles are still too small in 7 days.. I may convert to iui

    Oh Teena80 that's great news that you are going to try again maybe your body needs a well earned break too and you never know what the new year will bring you

    I am currently on day 8 of my tww and today the cramps where the worst they have been, they seriously feel like period cramps so it's hard not to be a little paranoid but I also know it could be a good sign. Have my blood test on Monday to find out if we are pregnant been so hard to relax and not let your mind go crazy thinking the worst. Not sure what's harder the 5 day wait between egg collection and egg transfer or the tww? Either way they both suck lol

    I found the tww worse for sure, but I had laproscopic egg collection so spent most of the 5 days either feeling sore or at work. Good luck for your blood test, ive got my second scan on Monday (8.5 weeks) got to see the heartbeat at the last one which was amazing. Sending you all good luck for what's to come. Xx

    Nervous86 congratulations that's awesome news.
    Through your tww did you get any spotting or bleeding? I've read that can get implantation bleeding, I haven't had any yet but had really bad cramps on Thursday which lasted most of the day. I really hate how the progesterone gives similar symptoms to being pregnant. Almost over two days to go did you have your blood test in the morning and the clinic calls in the afternoon with results? That what my clinic does I normally get a phone call around 2:30/3 from a nurse with results but in this case I will be at work on Monday and kinda don't want to take THAT call. Also thought it would be nice to have DH with me when we hear the result...

    Well got the call on Monday....BFN
    So devastated, I knew there was a high chance of the first fresh cycle not working but still hoped it would.
    Think it has hurt more because I did a pregnancy test on Saturday and it came up positive which was completely unexpected so I did another to double check and that was positive too. So went into the clinic Monday morning for my blood test nervous but quietly confident then to get the call to say we weren't pregnant hit me hard my HCG level was only 6.6 and they said the positive tests were probably caused from ovidril still in my system, I didn't know ovidril could do that.

    Got told to stop all meds and to wait for my period then call the clinic to make a day 21 appointment with the dr. We still have one frozen embryo we can try but the thought of having to go through all that again and the fear of "what if it doesn't work" aarrrhhhh this whole journey really sucks, as if not being able to fall pregnant naturally wasn't enough then having to go through IVF which isn't fun at all and for it not work and have nothing to show for it is hard. My family new we where going through this and they were so excited and we're so sure I was pregnant
    Think next time we will keep it quiet until we have something to tell.

    Oh well have to see what the New Years brings us
