Appointment went better than I was expecting, I have a ton of follies (happens with PCOS).

Good luck, Erica! I know it's been a long road for you. Here's hoping only a few of those take the lead and grow grow grow!

Good luck and hoping that only a good nuber of follies decide to be true leaders.

Girl, I know how you feel - last cycle I had 20 measuring over 10 and 10 over 14. Another 15 or so measuring under 10. How I managed NOT to get pg is beyond me!


I know it sounds like I have PCOS but I don't - I just responded really well to the Bravelle. I never had that many on Gonal-f and def not on Femara, Clomid or on my own. I do have a "string of pearl" ovaries but that's it. I have perfectly normal cycles and O on my own every month plus my insulin is right where it should be. Kinda pisses me off - if I had PCOS at least we would have some kind of an explanation.


I am glad your appt went well and I will have my FX for Wed!

Ann - Thanks...;)


Michelle - Yea...I don't know what my RE will do if I have more than 5 mature follies...it is dumb for me to worry about it now, but I want to go ahead and bd anyway.

Well, you *know* how I feel. As hard as it is for you and I to get pg I think it's well worth the risk. I had 5 mature and another 5 possibly mature and not a single one fertilized.


As far as SR you know I would do what I had to do to keep myself and my babies healthy. I am not going to risk my life or the lives of all my babies to have 7 instead of 2 or 3. With that said, if they could tell me there was not a great medical risk carrying 7, then I would carry 7! Regarding IVF, if you can afford to keep them frozen and plan to have more children via FET later down the road, then go for it. If not you can have them destroyed or donate them to a woman who cannot use her own eggs or afford IVF on her own. I donated my eggs right before my first injectables cycle and to this day I am so glad I did.


For me, there would be no question - I would donate them. There are wonderful, loving women out there who cry themselves to sleep every night because they can't have children. I could make their dreams come true.


Anyway, sorry I got into all this.
