Hi all, I am going through my first IVF (long protocol). I'm on day 9 of stimulation and so far I've managed to stay very positive and haven't really felt any side effects of the drugs. Today I went in for my scan, and the nurse didn't seem very impressed. She counted 6 follicles (all on the right side) and she said they were 'very small'. They have now increased my dose to 300 GonalF (currently 225). I have to come back in on Friday (which will be day 12 of stimulation). Does it mean I'm not responding to the drugs or is there still hope that the follicles will grow? I'm getting this horrible feeling again that my body just doesn't seem to be able to 'function' normally and can't produce the right eggs even with the help of drugs. I'm just annoyed that this managed to destroy all my positive thoughts... Sorry to rant a bit, it's just such an emotional rollercoaster!! If anybody had similar experience, I would be very grateful for your stories :)!
