    Default Starting IVF cycle

    Hi all, I'm new to this format amd just wanted to say hi. I'm 39 amd have just started my first ivf cycle. I unfortunately have had my scans after my fsh injections and only have 3 follicles still not of the right size after 10 days. I go back Monday. Wanting to get other people's experience. Would you proceed with only 3 follicles. My AMH is only 4, so even if I try again it may be the same result of minimal follicles.
    Any advice is appreciated.

    Hiya,
    I've got an Amh of 3, and have done an IVF cycles with four follicles and four eggs collected. I'd probably proceed with the cycle.

    @Wishingandhoping77 congrats on starting your first cycle. I dont have too much info but didnt want to read and run. My FS said they dont proceed unless they have a 'cluster' that look ready to go so they must have some faith in the follies you have. Is there any chance they'll increase your dose for you? I just finished my first IVF cycle, I'm 28 with no tubes and am now 4 +6 weeks pregnant i think how your attitude is leading into a cycle is crucial, it might not change the cycle but will help you deal with it all. I hope this cycle is your successful one, its quality not quantity 😊

    Hello! First cycle can be a bit trial and error, and your FS will be learning things about you from this cycle.

    What does your FS say?

    My last collection was for 3 follicles, my FS found 4 - and i just got a good strong BFP! Waiting on second blood test to check it's going ok.

    Ps i was given the option to cancel a cycle a few years ago because of low response. I went ahead and now have a 2yr old DS!

    See what your FS recommends.

    Hi ladies.
    I'm gonna right a little history of mine.
    TTC for over four years
    My age is 27
    DH is 34
    My AMH is low and DH has poor swimmers.
    I have started my ICSI treatment last month and now I'm the TWW period,which is killing me.Its my first cycle and I'm extremely hoping for a positive,as I have no frozen Embryos left either.Any success stories for the first cycle or ways to help me keep calm.
    Baby dust to all.

    Thanks everyone. So I am on a high dose already so they didn't want to increase my dose. I had my 3rd scan today after 12 days of needles. The 3 follicles I have are now 18mm and I have 2 others that are 12mm. They said that I can go to EC and I do the trigger tomorrow. I'm hoping the smaller ones will grow a bit more before Thursday.
    Thanks for sharing your stories. It gives me hope.

    what dose have they got you on @Wishingandhoping77 ?
    i have to be honest to you and say it didn't matter if i was on 250 or 600 goal f or menopur - my egg count at the end was always small. Our bodies can only do so much with low amh

    I was also 39 when I started IVF. For the first four rounds they had me on 350 Gonal F and, in order I got three eggs, two eggs, no eggs and one egg. Only had embryos to transfer round one and two (one embryo and two embryos respectively). Then on round five (at 41) they switched me to Menopur - five eggs, five embryos - transferred two and am now 22 weeks with our much awaited baby girl. Have three more on ice for later.
    Sometimes a change in protocol will be the magic bullet you need but you need to go through the motions to see what works and what doesn't.

    So I had my EC today, they got 5 eggs, 2 more than expected, so that was good news. They said the eggs looked good and were mature. Will find out if they fertilise tomorrow.
