I am in my 2nd fresh cycle, max dose of Gonal-F, and follicle development is going very slowly! Am on 16th day of stim!
I have a quarter of the follicles o had last year, and they are growing at half the normal rate (norm is 1.5mm/day).
I am on the wrong side of 40...
And I have needed breaks in treatment, to cope with the losses (failed cycles feel like miscarriage to me - bitter disappointment)... but now facing being cancelled before EC feels almost as bad.
We are going with "we only need one egg, one embryo"... (We're paying - doubt NHS wud allow continued stim)
....if you have any choice about when to get a fresh cycle, don't wait. xx
