Sara, you might get some more targetted help if you let us know which drugs are on the prescription. For instance, to downreg (eg. close down the natural cycle) I take Synerala (which is inhaled) but others need to inject their meds. To stim (start your system up again with increased dosages of what the body would normally produce and thus end up with more follicles than usual) I inject Puregon which uses an auto-injector pen which does all the work for you and doesn't hurt or bruise the stomach. Others use completely different meds which need to be injected in the bottom by 2nd person.

I know this is all a bit much to take in before you start. Have you had a look at Fertility & Conception by Zita West? she takes you through each tmt in clear detail.

hth and good luck,
Debra.

see Sara? I'm of zero help :oops: we don't use any of the same meds. I forgot to say my HCG booster is Profasi and following ET, I have to use Crinone pessaries.

I'm sure someone with more relevant feedback can help.

good luck

Hi Sara ..

Each clinic uses a different regime, therefore it makes it a little more difficult for us to compare ...

Cyclogest .. They are progestoroene .. I used them after I had had embryo transfater, and was waitinng for the 2 week period to see if it had worked (2ww)

Buserelin - I used this to downreg for all 3 of my cycles. For the first 2 cycles, I didn't have any sides effects at all. On the last cycle, I had terrible headaches

I didn't use Meopur, but used a different stim drug - Merional

Then I used Pregnyl (which is an HCG) 36 hrs before EC (egg collection). This releases your eggs ready for egg collection 36 hours later.


The Doxyclicline is an antibitiotic they give you after EC to ward off any infections. I've had Doxycline after last 2 ECs ..

Whatever questions you have, it's V. likely someone here has live through it ... !

Good luck !
