Hi...

I am on injections now...i dont know how you count days? Dose was 300 but from today she reduced to 150. It seems i had only 3 follicle but very small size. Doctor has refused to freeze anything i feel she is not that hopeful of retreiving anything...

Its the last hope for me. Dont know how my mother got pregnant in her 40s normally....

Hi Neha, do you mind me asking how old you are .. i didn't understand your question about counting days? i am in the TWW of my first IVF cycle. My stimulation drugs (for about 7 days or so) were gonal f and Menopur (225 each) and they added certotide (25 units or so) in the last 3 days before retrieval. Currently I am on Progesterone and Lonopin.
Dont feel sad, there are so many of us in this journey of IVF/ IUI.. all of us have different causes/ reasons for starting this journey, but at the end of the day, all of us here have only one objective - to take a healthy baby home! May God bless you and give you the strength to undergo this journey successfully!

Hey Gem,

Thanks for reply and amen ...i hope

Counting days i meant in iui we had this iuidp1 ...so how do you count that in ivf?

I had my first scan after injections 300ml but now i m on 150ml next scan after 2 days...i dont know normally they imcrease dose but this doctor reduced....

Best of luck with TWW

Neha, i am from India (and coincidentally am also a Neha :)).. i assume doctor is calibrating your medicine basis your scan. Some people get over stimulated ovaries (OHSS.. you can read about it). the counting begins after they transfer the embryo into the body. i assume you know about 3 day transfer / 5 day transfer. so for example i am a 8dp 5dt (8 days past 5 day transfer).
i also had 2 failed IUIs and moved to IVF straight away. all the best! you can PM me if you want to discuss anything else!

In a fresh transfer, it is like one IUI cycle ( unlike IUI where they transfer sperm, here they transfer fertilised egg). If it is frozen transfer, it is equal to 2 Cycles. Neha, suggest you read up about IVF so you can ask your doctor what kind of transfer is she thinking for you and why, so you are slightly better prepared mentally.

Hi Neha,

Good luck on your ER on sunday - FX they get some good quality eggs for your transfer.

I had my first baseline scan yesterday and was started on injectibles (Gonal F - 300iu) and my next scan will be on Sunday and again on Tuesday to see how the eggs are doing and then they will be able to tell me when my ER will be.
