Hi, I had my first blood test today after taking Menopur for 4 days, 300iu dose which I know is high. My AMH levels had reduced which I had expected as I'm 39 and so was not a shock but obviously still a worry. My consultant has said to increase to 375iu until next Weds (have another blood test and scan this Fri and Monday so know this may change). I'm just freaking out that my ovaries aren't responding like they should be and then I got home and cried and I thought I'd been really positive. I just know the leaflet says about dosage being 70-300iu a day and now I'm on more than that. Trying to be practical and logical and say 'what will be will be' but today isn't that easy. Does anyone else have experience like this please? Xxx
Increase in Menopur dose and emotiona... - Fertility Network UK
Is the medication to help increase ur amh count? I was told my count was 2.4 last April and that nothing could be done to improve it!!! I have another appointment with seemingly the best surgon in Ireland next month.... I might mention this if it's an option....any nasty side effects? I had to take prostrap injections after my first lap (stage 4 endo) and I swore never again side effect were terrible! Perhaps it's my endo which means they don't think prescribing this would help..any idea?
I was in 450iu for 2 days (split into 2x225iu doses, one in the morning and one at night) and then on 300iu for the rest of the injections stage (an additional 9 days). My amh is 5.07. I've had very little side effects this round- just been feeling tired generally.I'm on round 3 - got 5 eggs and currently on 2ww.
I was put on 375 menopur as I have low AMH (5) and it was upped to 450 mid-cycle, I’m now 16 weeks pregnant.
When you have low AMH, there is a low risk of over stimulation from the Menopur, hence the higher dosages (I believe), they just want to give you the best chance.
I know how overwhelming it can be, just try to take it one day at a time. All the best xx
I was on Merional and was on a whopping 600 a day (8 bottles per injection) for 13 days. Dr said it was the highest dose a woman could have in the UK. Boy did i feel it. The first day after my first injection i was breathless just walking into work from the car park. The swelling to my belly took 5 and a half months to go. Collected 7 eggs. Starting again in a few weeks time. God help me! But were tough and can smash this! X
