I would look into a fertility acupuncturist. If you can swing the payments, they can do wonders for your lining and periods. They may have you take some Chinese herbs, but you would need to stop these before starting your stimulation drugs. I would try to go to one at least 2 months before starting ...

On all of my pregnancies, I have only used Progesterone shots. Ever since it worked on my first pregnancy, I didn't want to change. But, my clinic now, will start with the shots, then after your first ultrasound, if baby looks good, you can switch to other forms of progesterone...

Question about stopping PIO and delestrogen shots...

This question may not be in the right place, but didn't know where to ask it... I am 10 1/2 weeks pregnant today from IVF. Have had 3 ultrasounds so far and the last one was at 9 1/2 weeks. Everything looked great. I was instructed to start weaning my PIO and delestrogen shots starting at 9 1/2 week...

Thank you for the article! It was really good. I am 6 weeks tomorrow and I have been in a panic about not having any morning sickness. Just last night and this morning, I've started to become a little nauseas after drinking water and when I'm hungry. But, that's it so far. Tender bb's, a little bit ...

Beta question

Had my first beta on Monday - 326, today's was 633 - is it a problem that it didn't completely double? It's close, but not completely...Just worrying like always!

Thank you Ghost for the recommendation! They upped my dose to 112.5 and my estradiol has gone up. On this past Friday, I have 5 follicles that measured at 10-11mm and about 8 that were at 8-10mm. I am hoping that those will catch up. My next u/s is on Monday morning. My lining has gone from a 5.2 to...

Yes, they do, b/c I got bad OHSS with being on 150 units on my first IVF. This is my second IVF... Well... I guess if my levels are still not going up tomorrow then we will know more. My thoughts are if this is not going right, I rather stop everything and start over in January/February. I have pray...

HELP! Low estradiol levels after 4 days of stims...

So, I'm on 75 units of Gonal F. I have done 4 shots so far. On my u/s today, showed 12-14 follicles growing. Estradiol was 25. They are upping me to 112.5 units. Am I going to have a problem with my estradiol? Will they cancel the cycle?

Forgot to prime the Gonal F!!!!

Last night was my first dose of Gonal F and I completely forgot to prime it. I just gave myself the shot. I have NO idea if any went in, b/c my dose is only 75 units and that's just a small dose.

Should I prime it tonight? Any ideas?

TIA!

Thanks girls... I did leave a message for the clinic yesterday afternoon.

I did go home and took my last bcp and have not had anymore red tissue come out. Maybe my period will be start in 1-2 days instead of the normal 3-5 days after you end bcps? Who knows???

Need Advice...

Hey! Okay, tonight is supposed to be my last day of bcps. I've been on Lupron for 4 days now. My AF is supposed to come in 3-5 days after I stop the bcps. I just used the restroom and it looks like some tiny pieces of red tissue have come out when I pee. This has been happening the last couple of mo...

Caffeine - Coffee with IVF?

What is the acceptable amount of coffee/caffeine to take during IVF? I have cut down to one cup in the morning. Just wondering if I need to stop it completely.

TIA!!

I'll take that! If it will get me thru transfer - I'm a happy duck... If I'm pregnant, I'll deal with the OHSS at that point. I really have a feeling that I will get a mild case of OHSS, but no where near what I had before. My RE is really trying to stay on top of this for me. I hope it all works ou...
