I'm on my 3rd IVF cycle which is a short flare. Our first was a long protocol with about 16 eggs of which 8 fertilised but only 2 got to day 5. The second one was a shorter protocol with Luveris and we got about 12 eggs but only 6 fertilised with 4 getting to blastocyst.
We are starting the whole process again from scratch after our FET ended in a missed miscarriage with this being our final round. We have changed from Luveris to Menupor. I went for our first scan today and there are only 6 follicles in total. Although the clinic have always stated that it's quality over quantity this has totally freaked me & hubby out!
The clinic have now upped my dosage of Menopur and told me to take it in the evening with the Gonal F. They hadn't previously told me a specific time to take it so I'd been doing it in the morning alongside the Burserilin like an idiot as I'd just been told it was to help egg quality!!
I'm so worried that (a) I've buggered up the process on our final go & (b) we could end up with no fertilised embryos!
I know it only takes one embryo to make a baby but I think that's more positivity than I've got at the moment! 😣
