Hey girls! I started my estridol today, and this time I'm taking a pill 3xa day instead of an injection 2-3x a week. I can't remember this being a side effect last transfer, but do any of you get really sleepy after taking estridol? I took mind this morning, and I could hardly keep my eyes open at around 11am, so I told DH I was going to take a little nap...and he woke me up around 4:30, asking if I was ok, and if he should let me keep sleeping! I felt fine, I was just quite sleepy!! Anyone else?

Just came back from egg collection and they only got 5 eggs, 4 of which looked mature :( I am so bummed I was hoping for at least 8....also DH sample was "a bit slow and sluggish" so embryologist said they would do ICSI instead of IVF where they inject a single sperm into the egg....needing prayers that at least one fertilises :(

Hope everyone else is doing good xxxx

My ovarian reserve is on the low side they said for a 29yr old but didn't think it was that low! Just you read about other ladies having 15+ eggs but with us its literally every single one counts....i think if they do another cycle I will ask for them to up my stimms - I had 14 follicles but only 4-5 eggs xxx

I understand,did they said if the rest of them were empty or just not mature?Is something you should ask at ur appointment.
Don't think about another try,think positive.

They said that yeah some of them didn't have an egg in them, so from what I'm thinking, the 3 20mm ones must have and maybe 1 or 2 of the 18mm....to be honest ai was just thinking whys it so low and will it work lol i forgot to ask anything else....she said they may do a 3 day transfer if some fertilise which is fine by me the quicker theyre back where I want them the better in my eyes lol xxx

Just think positive and remember it only takes one!!
I was suggesting you should ask at ur next apoiment bcs you will want to know if they were empty or just not mature enough,in case they were empty you can blame it on ur low reserve but if they weren't mature enough blame it on the protocol the doc choosed for you but ofc im no doctor and i can't possibly know what happened!
Take a moment to calm down and relax and then you can think about all this!!

Hi ladies, do you mind if I join you? I'm part of a buddy group, but it would be nice to chat with others that are going through the ivf process. I'm a bit behind you all, looking like we will have a January transfer.

A little about myself, we've been trying for over 3 years. We had 3 natural bfps and early losses in 2014 and 2015, 3 unsuccessful iuis and decided to move on to mini ivf. I have dor, so I don't produce more than 1-2 eggs at a time, so we decided to do egg banking, where we do multiple retrievals and freeze the eggs until we get a batch and then we will thaw, fertilize and transfer. We just attempted another egg retrieval today, but unfortunately I ovulated early through the lupron. We have decided to attempt a transfer with our 4 frozen eggs. We have a follow up next week to discuss a plan, hoping we can do the transfer in early January. From our previous discussions with the RE it looks like he will start me on delestrogen injections on CD 1 and continue until he is satisfied with my lining, then start pio injections.

Danaa - you are so close, I've been keeping up with your story on the other board and wish you all the best!

Puddles - it looks like you were able to get in for December? That's great news!

Amouna - I'm sorry you're disappointed with 5, but the good news is with your age, the chance is higher the eggs will be good quality and it only takes one! Fingers crossed and prayers for good fertilization report.

Furbaby - I'm sorry about the polyp but hopefully it won't cause a delay.

Johnny - Did you have an appt today?
3 early losses (natural bfps)
IUI #1-3 - BFN
IVF #1 - transferred 2 3-day embryos - BFN
IVF #2 - converted to IUI - BFP! - MC at 5 weeks
IVF #3 - 1 hatching 5 day blast transferred - 4 frosties
5dp5dt bfp :D
Beta #1 10dp5dt = 264
Beta #2 12dp5dt = 699
6w5d - HR 129 Image
8w2d - HR 174 Image

Hi keeptrying :) and welcome! Thanks for your kind words, I know only takes one but I just don't even know the quality of them yet :( ah i guess i'll know this time
Tomrrow! Thats actually a really good idea to do multiple egg retrievals, we are having IVF on NHS so we have two fresh cycles and 2 frozen funded for us- which I am so so grateful for but if we have none to freeze then basically we have two goes....so emotionally draining the injections were definately the easy part of this process I think!
Good luck on your frozen transfer! And sorry to hear of your losses- do they know why you had them? Hopefully we all get our take home babies :) I have low ovarian reserve too, to be honest I was pretty naive and didn't thi it would be this low in terms of eggs, because my clinic didnt seem too worried about it they just said low ish for my age but not considered diminished....anyways we will see,all we can do is hope and pray :) xxxxx
