I feel like crying I have never got to ET. this is my 2nd ICSI cycle, as the first was abandoned cos of OHSS 2nd FET abandoned cos all 12 frosties didnt make it and now this.... Please if someone can help me  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

    Thanks Paula,
      They havent changed the doseage of puregon at all though I was on 150 for my first cycle I am on 200 now.....

    Hi Tinks

    I don't have any advice for you as I've not had your experince but wanted to say good luck and hope you find a way to keep calm. This tx stuff is so hard and the added hormones in your system are going to make you feel even more erratic than normal.

    You will find a way to cope, but for now try not to give up - there are many girls who wait a long time for their follies to play ball, and get there in the end. ^reiki^

    Take care
    Caroline

    Hi Tinks

    On my last cycle I was stimming with Menopur. I only had three follicles on day 6 and was told if there were no more on day 10 they could cancel. They increased my dose and on day 10 I had 8 follicles. Stimmed for an extra two days then had EC. Got 8 eggs!!
    Good luck

    Tiknks, there was someone on this site recently at argc who was doing either ivf or icse (can't remember which...maybe icsi??)  anyway instead of cancelling her tx they converted to IUI - she only had 2 follicles i think.  anyway she tested positive.  surely that is worth pursuing rather than just cancelling (if it comes to that)?  the name of the post she wrote is called something like "success with IUI at argc" and it is either on icsi or ivf thread if i remember correctly.

    anyway, hope you dont have to cancel.  M

    Thanks Ladies,

    I am feeling a bit better today as my right ovary is aching which is encouraging!!! and if they dont produce enough, well there is nothing that can be done is there.... just get back on the ride next month....
