I started my 2nd round of ICSI on Saturday. My first failed round ended in just 2 eggs being collected to which neither fertilised. The consultant mentioned poor egg/low ovarian reserve and I have also got low amh levels. I started taking DHEA in August 2019 alongside COQ10 Ubiquinol and also a LOT of other supplements.
I had my first tracking scan today to which they discovered 3 follicles up to where they should be and another 3 that could potentially grow over the weekend of stimms. They have upped my stimms from the last round. I am on 300 Menopur, 150 Gonal F and 250 Cetrotide.
I know I should feel more positive as this is more than last time, but if the 3 smaller ones do not develop then I have only produced one more follicle than last time and 3 is just such a low number. I am feeling so low. Have felt so emotional all week and very teary. I just don't know what to do now. I am due my egg collection on Friday next week but I just cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel and it feels exactly the same as round 1. I feel so helpless. Can anyone give me some advice? I have got the mindful IVF app but I just want to stop thinking about it for just a second. It is on my mind constantly. I am so worried that it is not doing me any good either for things to further develop. I just don't know where to turn to now. 😔😔😔😔😢😢😢😢
Thank you all in advance. Xxxxxx
