I'm the same. First scan today (day 7) and quite a lot of little follicles and only a couple of big ones. Upping my dose to 225iu from this evening. Strange how we all react differently! Still I know the hospital knows what they're doing so we just have to trust them. Good luck with it all!

I have my second scan tomorrow and I'm already on 3 powders a day. Tomorrow will be day 8 for me. All being well tomorrow and final scan on Monday I will be having EC on Wednesday. Feels surreal! X

Similar situation here...started on 3powders & went up to 6! It really boosted the follicles so sure it will for you too. Best of luck xx
