Round 3 egg collection

Hi everyone, so I started round 3 ivf this month and had EC today. First round 5 eggs all fertilised - bfn, round two 8 eggs, 7 mature, 5 fertilised- bfn. Nothing to freeze either round. Round three, 11 eggs! They have increased the dose for each round and I started on ubiquinol, royal jelly and DHEA on round three. My eggs seem to be poor quality and I have endometriosis so I’m hoping we have 2 to transfer this time or something is good enough to freeze. We have only had one blastocyst before which was a day 6 grade BC so they wouldn’t freeze it. Wishing everyone luck wherever they are in the journey xxx

Hi luv, how are you feeling? 11 eggs is awesome. I had 9, same as last time but hoping most of them fertilise 🙏🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 wishing you all the best in this round. Just feeling a bit sick now but it’ll pass hopefully. I can’t remember if they told me to use a pessary tonight or start tomorrow though 🤔😂 xx

Yeah, I’ve come up with a lame excuse to work from home tomorrow so I can take phone calls 👍🏼

If this doesn’t work, any idea how long it is until you feel less bloated? I really feel like I could explode from within

I think it took about a week for the bloating to go but it starts to go down a bit wash day. Prob is that for me it was then negative test so I started to bloat with my period. Bloating completely went after my period but I suppose everyone is different.

Good luck tomorrow 🤞🏻for everyone xx

We are starting our 3rd Round in July, I have a good amh but a slow responder, I just thought if i tried something different I could get more eggs. Did u use those stimms ur last 2 times aswell? I haven't heard of them.

Reply
penny24

Yes I did. I used 225units for round one, the 300units for round 2, 450units round 3. I also have a high amh but I’m a slow responder. I introduced ubiquinol, DHEA, royal jelly. Also got my thyroid checked, iron levels, vit d levels and omega 3 levels. Good luck with your next cycle, hopefully it’s 3rd time lucky for both of us xx

Very similar to me I was on 225 first then 300 second but increased to 375 half way through. Who'll b in 375 from start this time. I take dhea also 75mg and 100mg of ubiqunol, how much of it do u Take? And what strength of royal jelly? I have underactive thyroid also and I'm on 125 of thyroxin.

I was on DHEA 25mg three times a day, ubiquinol 300mg once daily, royal jelly 500mg once daily and omega 3 twice daily. My oh is on condensyl as well. Not sure if it’s the meds or the supplements that has improved things. 🤞🏻 and good luck with your next cycle xx

Thank u so much I will up my ubiquinol then an order the royal jelly then. I take omega 3 also but once daily so will up it too. I also take vit d3 an pregnacare before conception. Hubby takes well man conception, zinc and omega 3. Fingers crossed all this works for both of us . Take care and good luck xx

My acupuncturist said pregnacre max was better but not sure why, the consultant said he has had fab results increasing sperm quality /quantity with condensyl. U need to be on meds at least 3 months to have a full effect

Have my fingers crossed for u xx

Well no point hubby starting condensyl now then for this round prob. Hopefully this thine will week but if not I def will get this for him too. Spend a fortune on vitamins and acupuncture on top of everything else, just hope it all worth it. My acupuncturist made me up some herbal Chinese drink I had to drink to build my whole system up as he said it was low. Def going back to him again soon.
