Re: Empty follicle syndrome?

I just saw this new reply to my post a year ago, and it still feels sad to remember how devastated I was at the time. As you can see from my signature below that it was a failed cycle after all as I predicted, but I did go on to learn some answers I think, as well as have a successful 3rd cycle resu...

Re: Tryin for number two!

It was a negative as I suspected. Have been pretty devastated and depressed. Had a long phone consult with my doctor along with my husband today-- it has been a very disappointing summer for us all, including our doctor. He says he expected us to be pregnant too. Anyway, he felt sorry for us and is ...

Re: cramping after 1st positive beta

I'm hoping that is the case-- it was 21 then 53 the first time. Just going out of my mind over here. :?

Re: cramping after 1st positive beta

It is somewhat of a relief to have found this thread. I have had mild cramping for a couple of days now. Yesterday, day after my first beta, I took a hpt, and it was negative. My doctor has a stupid policy of not releasing results until the second beta, and I got impatient. Then, after getting the n...

Re: Empty follicle syndrome?

I ask because for my first IVF I did not inject any antagon. Maybe it's bravelle vs follistim/menopur?

Re: Empty follicle syndrome?

Do you think the antagon disrupted the final maturing of my eggs then? I took it 27 hrs prior to the HCG shot, which I didn't have at all the first time. I know I felt different after that: less bloated, no more cervical mucus.

Empty follicle syndrome?

So I had my egg retrieval the other day, and I'm really disappointed to have only retrieved 4 eggs out of all the good follicles that were growing. Even my doctor was surprised. Background: I had an IUI converted to IVF 2 years ago on Bravelle. We got 7 eggs, 5 fertilized, 2 transferred, 2 frozen. A...

Re: Tryin for number two!

Lyd, do you live in a state where insurance covers your treatments? Otherwise, how do you afford it? I'm already in it over $24K. Well worth it when it's successful, but I don't know how much we have it in us if not.

Re: Tryin for number two!

Lyd, I'm so sorry! It's sucks that the best chances are only 65%. Did you have one embryo tansferred or two?

Re: Tryin for number two!

Lyd congrats! My betas with my daughter were only 21 and 53.

Transfer is tomorrow at 11. I asked to see if we could get them in today, but was told that's not done. I'm so scared!

Re: Tryin for number two!

Only 2 have made it so far. I can't believe this time actually trying to do IVF would yield such disappointing results. The first time we were going for IUI, which was converted to IVF. I got 7 eggs, 5 fertilized, 2 tranfered, 2 frozen. I thought (my doctor did too) that we'd for sure do much better...

Re: Tryin for number two!

Only 4 eggs. So many follicles empty. Disappointed.
