Low AMH / High FSH Cycle Buddies - Part 6
« Reply #70 on: 2/02/18, 10:19 »
Unfortunately Iím out 😞. My clinic wanted me to take a hpt on otd and itís negative. I suspected as much when I started spotting. Iím feeling very sad, but determined to keep trying.

Rossss - iím glad to hear the bloating has eased. Cramps etc could be due to the medication. I continued taking pregnacare, 75mg aspirin, vit D, vit B complex, royal jelly and DHA.

    Babyhopeful and KatKat, I'm so so sorry to hear this. It's really hard after you get your hopes up. KatKat, I know you've done it many times before, but a little bit of you still hopes this might be your lucky shot and you must be disappointed. Your lining thickness sounds fine to me, I transferred on 7 last time and it was all good.  Thinking of you both right now and sending you lots of love, please be kind to yourselves this weekend and maybe indulge in a big glass of wine! xxx

    LXP this is probably a bit late, but good luck today! Hope you get a good hoard, it's a shame about one ovary but maybe it will stop hiding and be co-operative today.  Let us know how you get on xxx

    Tily anything central London is good for me. I come in from Herts to Kings X so most places are easy enough from there. Thanks for arranging and looking forward to seeing everyone next weekend! x

    katkat and babyhopeful: I'm so sorry... It hurts so much every time... I send you both big hugs...

    katkat: that lining sounds cushy enough... it likely was the embryo... Still, if you want to give the lining a bit of an extra boost, it wouldn't hurt... I'm sorry you're so tired of it. I totally get it, and send you hugs... Looking forward to seeing you soon, hopefully...

    babyhopeful: re. DHEA, have you tested your testosterone levels to see if you needed? Both of my REs have dismissed it outright, so I don't even know what tests are needed, but I've observed that for some women the response is indeed better on DHEA while for others it's worse... As for immunes, I'm sorry, I forget--have you ever had implantation? If not, I might test. Or just go straight for taking prednisolone... in the US they give you four days of prednisolone around transfer time as a matter of course... And CRGH prescribes Clexane to pretty much everyone. I'm feeling a bit cynical about testing for immune issues, and feel more like throwing the kitchen sink at every transfer makes more sense unless you have a reason not to... I'm planning prednisolone, intralipids, and Clexane for my next transfer, whenever that might be...

    Shady: it will be excellent to (hopefully) see you! I'm really looking forward... Some day I hope it will be in celebration rather than commiseration, but for now we will have to settle for comforting and encouraging each other...

    ross: keeping my fingers crossed for you... re. supplements, I believe in the 2ww you should still take a multivitamin like Pregnacare Conception, extra folic acid if you take it, Vitamin D most likely, and Omega 3.

    Briss: thank you! Ok, I understand re. bloods--I guess when the follicles start detaching from the ovaries they stop producing as much oestrogen... I hadn't thought about that... I'm hoping for a better cycle for you next time. You so deserve a break...

    LXP: how did it go? I hope your ovaries both made an appearance and you got a nice haul!

    Mac: how did the progesterone test go? I agree--it's funny how minds work, but if you know non-IVF-related relaxation helps you more, go for that!

    tily: thank you, that's very sweet! I hope I get to see you... Happy to go to "my restaurant" or anywhere else in London, really... Is the timing for your London trip working ok? You're going to visit Lister, right?! Incidentally, I've thought with apprehension of your hysteroscopy too--but I think you said your periods have, if anything, normalised a bit, so your signs so far are good. I'm so hoping you get that lasting BFP before you make that switch to DE...

    AFM: it's confirmed, the hysteroscopy is on the 19th, and I have to be in hospital at 7:30am, so I'm cutting my France trip a little short and taking the Eurostar back from France on the night of the 18th. Apparently that's the only day Mr Trew is operating at Hammersmith in February. I'm so tired of waiting... so tired of bending over backwards... It's so odd--I'm not even a little interested in collecting any more eggs while I wait for this surgery. I'm just done with that. I guess on the plus side, after all this if we don't get our bio-baby, the adoption process will seem like a complete walk in the park!

    One somewhat awkward question: I have a friend visiting from Norway next weekend--and so far it's sort of looking like Saturday Feb 10th is the most likely date we will meet (the doodle poll is here, for whoever else wants to join: https://doodle.com/poll/ycrq4b982t6756ir )... By some coincidence, she is also DOR, and she's TTC her second child... She's had a number of miscarriages so far... She's married to another woman, and now they've switched to doing reciprocal IVF (so, my friend's wife, who is not DOR, donates the egg and my friend carries...) She can absolutely entertain herself while I go see you, but if you gals think it's ok I think she'd find it interesting to meet you... She'd be a total stranger to all of you, though, so I'm on the fence about how good an idea it would be... Thoughts?

    Babyhopeful, I'm very sorry it didn't work this cycle. It's always heart breaking. What is your next step?

    LXP, 8 eggs!!! Brilliant! Fingers crossed for fertilisation.

    Klik, great that you have the date now. Shame that you have to cut your trip for this but it'll be all worth it in the end. Not long now.

    Rossss - thank you for your kind words. I havenít had a proper cry yet, but I think itís all going to hit me this weekend. Iíve gone into problem solving mode. Iíve booked an appointment with a new clinic for the 12th and had a long chat to one of the lovely nurses at our current clinic. All the nurses apart from one were brilliant and were really reassuring throughout the process so Iím a little sad to say goodbye to them.

    Shadywheat- thank you. I have a nice bottle of red lined up for later this evening and Iíve had the first cup of tea in four weeks this afternoon. I will definitely try and do nice things this weekend.

    Katkat - thank you. Iím sending you lots of hugs too. Having a plan D (I think DH are long past plan B now) has definitely helped.

    Kilk - when I had initial fertility investigations my testosterone was very low. Jan 2017 it was apparently back in the normal range, but Iíve had a few symptoms such as tiredness, joint aches etc. over the last year which have led me to suspect low testosterone. I think Iím going to start the DHEA this weekend and see what the specialist thinks on the 12th. Maybe they will suggest retesting my testosterone. Iíve never had implantation, but 3 months into ttc I had strong cramps and a bleed one week after ovulation. This has occurred numerous times when ttc naturally over the last three years. When I have brought this up with Drs they have always suggested progesterone issues and a luteal phase defect although progesterone bloods have never confirmed this. This problem never happened prior to ttc and pre pill (which I only took for 2 years from 2013 to beginning of 2015). Weíre planning to do IVF with the sister clinic of CRGH, so thatís brilliant to hear that they will let you have immune meds without having all the expensive tests.

    Iím sorry to hear that you have to cut your trip short for the hysteroscopy. I feel like Iíve postponed and rearranged so many social events on this journey, but hopefully it will all be worth it for us.

    LXP - thatís fantastic news about your ER. I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

    Briss - thank you. We have an appointment booked with a private clinic for the 12th. We used them for my first cancelled IUI and thought they were really helpful and friendly. Iím going to ask whether theyíre okay with me taking DHEA before my next cycle and whether theyíre open to trying an estrogen priming protocol with me and using immune meds.
