I was wondering what the highest dose of stimms you can have.....I am apoor responder to stimms due to raised FSH and last ICSI cycle they had me on 375vials of Merional as well as steriods anyone had higher dose than this just to give me an idea. Every cycle i've had my egg quantity has deteriated. Any replys much appreciated.  :)

Hello,

I'm on 450 in total, 225 of merional and 225 of fostimon.  I had an abandoned cycle of ivf in March due to poor response (but was on a much lower dose then) - thought the same was gonna happen this time but looks like I might just make it to my first EC.

Hi,

Think I had 600 Puregon with mine but only ever got 4 eggs.  Made me feel pretty rough too but still not as bad as the evil Clomid!!! ;D

I'm on cycle 6 right now.  Cycles 2-5 on 450 Puregon or Menopur; Cycle 6 on 300 Puregon. Cycle 1 abroad: 600 Puregon plus some Repronex!  But my best success was Cycle 3...on 450.  My daughter, the One Egg Wonder!!

Don't worry!  Some people don't get ANY side effects from Clomid at all - I think I got 99% of them (didn't have the stroke!! ;D ;D ;D)

If you're only taking it for the cycle it's not too awful.  Have you tried DHEA (made me ill too!!!!)  it does work for some people as it's supposed to improve egg quality...it's cheap & you can get it on-line.

Good luck!
