He had already lowered my dosage after he saw my baseline ultrasound and now i dont know what hes going to do. He said because of my PCOS he wanted to go slow and get to where we need to be slowly rather than stay the course and over stimulate which could result in canceling my cycle altogether. Anyone else experience this? Will he lower the dose more or take me off them for a few days?


I know when I was doing my second round of IVF my doctor backed off my dosage because of my stimulated reaction was a little more than she would have liked. When I went in for the transfer (looking back) they should have cancelled my transfer. The day of the transfer she found fluid in my uterus and said it was ok. I wish she would have been more pro-active like your doctor.

So I did a no-no and tested early in the middle of the night last night and got a BFN. I was just shy of 7dp3dt. I have been so bummed out today. I know that it was early, but my first beta with my daughter was 425 so I feel like I am one of those people who has high betas, and thought it probably would have registered by now. Do most people that have high HCG levels once always have them, or does it vary cycle to cycle? I know it's early, but I am just feeling negative now.

I know that for 3dt - day 7 is early, but I so understand the temptation :x . I don't know how the numbers can fluctuate but I do know it happens. There are stories that some women had great numbers the first time and numbers climbed just as they should. Then with the second pg the numbers started low then slowly climbed and was still sucessfull. :lol:

Pauleen, a new beginning sounds just like what you needed. Hope you like the new clinic and doctor.

Caydens Mom, the doctors know what they're doing. I'm sure they're just being cautious. I've heard overstimulation is relly painful.

BRMommy, yeah I am a POAS culprit too. I will be POAS in the morning and it'll be only 6dp3dt
But we did put 6 in lol! When is your beta?

Me, well I'm hanging in there. We've had lots of family staying with us and it's been a nice distraction from myself you know?

What do you all do for a living?

Okay had another ultrasound today and I have about 40 eggs in each ovary. Two days ago some of the eggs were 6MM and today they were 8MM so its slow and steady but getting there. He said he will not let me overstimulate. He said he felt bad it was taking so long but I told him no worries Id rather go slow than not at all!

Cayden's mom-wow! That is a lot of follicles! Hope there are lots of good quality eggs in there.

Tortilla chip- my beta is Saturday. I am in technology sales. How about you? Cant wait to hear your POAS results!

Pauleen, thanks for the support. I hope this new doctor has a fresh approach that will work for you!

Afm- I am teetering between trying to be positive and not getting my hopes up. I feel completely normal except for an occasional twinge which could be completely due to my ovaries getting back to normal. I wish I had journaled last time to compare notes! I read on the nyfertility website that hcg only starts to secrete on like day 8 or 9 and isn't strong enough to be detected on hpt until day 10 or 11 but I see lots of posts to the contrary. Oh, to simply do the deed and voila!

Tortillachip - That is a very good distraction, family will make the time go by. I'm an Operations Manager for a Military Valve Company. What do you do?

Caydensmom - WOW girl.......... that is sooooo awsome. You really have alot to work with. That is great to hear keep us posted before the transfer. :D

BrMommy2b - It's so hard to stay possitive going through this whole process, however if we don't try then there's no result....good or bad.

AFM: Trust me I have such cold feet right now and it's like I am in yet soooooo scared of the outcome. I keep telling my body to work and accept this little life. I so want it to be my time, years of TTC and nothing! I know if I don't try then for sure it will never be. It's so hard even writing down talking to you ladies. Big hugs to everyone and a ton of baby dust!

Im brand new to this forum and recently just did my 3rd round of IVF. We miscarried at 6 weeks last time so this is an emotional round. Went very agressive only to get the lowest results yet. Unfortunately my egg quality sucks. Kind of feel time is not on my side somedays. I live with a non curable or treatable disorder called Ehlers Danlos and my physical health slowly gets worse as time goes on so the doctor tell us our time is now. Too bad my body thinks other wise :) We did our ET on 9/10/2012 and the 2WW is dragging. We find out on 9/21/2012. Fingers are crossed

I'm soooo sorry! Are there any frosties from this cycle? I know you were in same boat as me with the finances but a FET is more affordable than the IVF. Big hugs!

No, and that's the worst part. If we had frosties it would be soon and inexpensive. Now we have to save up and torture myself again for a full cycle. :(

Been talking/crying it out with my one female coworker. It helps to talk. I encourage every one to talk to at least someone face to face. I can type stuff and hold it together, but when I actually speak the words, the emotions come flooding out. I started crying this morning as I was doing a voice-to-text message to a friend telling her it was a BFN. I had known all morning and not cried, but when I said the words, the flood gates opened.

Beta is 2.5, which my clinic considers positive, but not viable. They want me to come in for a second test Monday. Told me to continue meds but prepare for it to not make it. I started light bleeding today.

BRMommy2B - I am so sorry to hear about your beta results. It's good your clinic does it's due diligence, but seems like they have prepared you for reality. Nothing helps, but know you are not alone. (((((((big hugs to you))))))

mommyto(may)be - baby dust to you! hardest part of the 2ww is staying positive - you can do it! :)

caydensmom - holy cow, that's a lot of active follies lady! slow and steady is the way to go - you get better quality eggies. :) how long have you been stimming?

I am having my FET on Monday, Sept 17th. This is my first FET (after three fresh cycles) - it's so weird not to go into the office for all the b/w and ultrasounds. Am still getting used to the IM needles - DH has been doing the injections, but I need to learn to do it myself. Seems kind of awkward to stick my backside - I'm not that flexible! ;)
