If my results come back this week I start norethisterone tablets then but if they don't then I will have to wait till next cycle. Which means November before getting my injections etc.( Try not to be too hopeful for next week.
How are u feeling about it all?
How long have you been trying ? Is this your first round ?

Hi! I'm Sarah. I got a BFP on my first round of IVF two years ago. When he turned one we went back to try for a sibling. We've cycled twice with BFNs,and now I'm on to my last try (insurance covers 3 tries per live birth). I'm DOR and have been using the estrogen priming protocol, but this time my doctor wants to try testosterone and estrogen priming. So I start with testosterone gel tomorrow. I'll start stimming next month. Good Luck to everyone!! Would love to keep this thread going for support and luck!

Sarah, I also am DOR and did estrogen priming and testosterone along with growth hormone (haven't seen anyone else using that in here yet). My AFC was in the double digits but don't recall exactly, we retrieved like 16 eggs. We did a freeze all and ended up with 4 embryos after PGS.

Lucy, what I found was all the meds was intimidating at first (and I'm a nurse) but after a couple of days you get real used to it. Just keep your med calendar handy. I got overly confident my first FET cycle and messed up my meds delaying transfer by almost a week. I found belly shots easy to do myself but used DH for my intramuscular trigger and progesterone shots.

Thanks MKaykes. I asked my clinic about HGH as I've heard it can help with egg quality, but they said they don't use it as part of their protocols. I do trust my doctor, so I want to believe she knows what is best for me, but part of me wonders what would happen if she let me add the HGH as well...

Can I ask how long you guys have taken your injections for ?before egg collection? Is it 2weeks ? I know I'm to take mine for a week and have my first scan and see how I am, just wondering how long I should expect to be taking them?

I started stims on a Friday and my retrievals have always been the next Monday or Tuesday. So 11ish days. But I think it's different for everyone!
