I had my first scan yesterday on day 5 (day 4 of stimms) and they located 2 follies on each ovary measuring between 7.6mm and 9mm. Whilst the sizes sound good I can’t help worrying about numbers and whether we’ll make it to ET. I’ve very low AMH of 1.1 and my last antral follicle count was 5 so I had no expectations of getting more than 5 follicles growing during my IVF cycle especially as I’m on a mild stimulation protocol (mini IVF) but it just scares me that we won’t necessarily retrieve 4 eggs at EC and then there’s the hurdles of fertilisation and embryo development to get through...the reality has kicked in. I’m trying to stay positive and I’ve been taking supplements to improve egg quality for a few months so I’m hoping that despite my age (41), the eggs will be good enough to make it and we get to transfer. I’ve read loads of people having success with low numbers so I’m hoping and praying I’m one of them too.
Also sonographer said my lining is quite thick at this stage as it’s 9.3mm and asked if my period was ok. My periods have become lighter since end of last year and even more so after I had a mc (Managed via ERPC) in Feb so I wonder if I’m not shedding enough of my lining, if anything I thought my lining might be too thin. If it continues to thicken, is this anything to worry about, i.e. is there a point at which it’s too thick for ET?
