So last week I had my baseline scan - all good, lining the correct thickness etc, good to go! I started the short protocol with 0.3mls of Suprecur that night and then the next night as instructed started on the 1200 Menopur at 300iu. So it's now 8 days later (7 on Menopur), I had a scan this morning to check everything is coming along nicely aaaaaaaaand...it's not.
The nurse said I had one follicle that was slightly bigger than it should be, and the rest (about 4 or 5) all smaller than they should be. Basically they should all meet in the middle somewhere on her chart, but they don't. The one big follicle is stopping the others from developing quick enough (or something like that - you know how you basically forget EVERYTHING they've said as soon as you get home, esp if it's bad news) She said that as I was already on a high dose of Menopur as my AMH is ok, but low for my age group (10, I'm 33 - I didn't know this until today - waah!?) they won't up my dosage today but just carry on with the injections as normal until my scan the day after tomorrow.
I was just wondering if anyone else has had this and gone on to produce enough eggs for EC? I'm on the short protocol so will they keep me going for longer on it? My EC was tentatively scheduled for next Monday (today is Wednesday) so will that be put back to allow me more time for the follicles to develop, or will they just abandon this cycle altogether?
We're having ICSI as my husband has wonky sperm, my reproductive health and levels have all been absolutely fine in all the tests we've had done, so whilst I know anything can happen it's a bit of a shock to today suddenly be faced with me not responding properly to the drugs.
The nurse was wittering on saying this wouldn't be classed as a 'cycle' of IVF if cancelled but if I had another go and it did the same thing there isn't a guarantee I would be eligible for another cycle which has freaked me out a bit. We are NHS funded and have 2 cycles available to us, so to hear conflicting info about that this morning from her has also been a bit of a kick in the nuts!
Anyway, just wanting some feedback and wondering if anyone else has been in the same position?
