thanks ladies - you're right, it could just be the scan playing up!
AMH is taken from your bloods and apparently gives an estimate of remaining egg reserve. It is a bit like the FSH but can be taken anytime rather than at certain points in the month. From what i understand the lower the FSH the better, and the higher the AMH the better!
Thinking of you today Kazza - and hope you get Dr Tom.
Hubby didn't have to do a sample because they had the recent results from the end of September and they were analysied quite in depth at Chelsfield, so guess they thought he didn't need to do it again.
Assuming I still go ahead as normal then i'll be calling just after Xmas to arrange appt with nurse and starting sniffer drugs mid Jan.
Hopefully they'll have my AMH results soon to put my mind at rest 1 way or another!!
Kazza -let us know how you get on and whether you get Dr Tom
Fingers crossed for your bloods I'm just waiting for mine now!!
Sa done, scan done, very poly cystic 26 on each ovarie and should be 15! I've got dr reddy who said its not less likely to work but will be very prone to over stimming! will need to be monitored regularly!!
Need to wait to see if I bleed in next two weeks, if so then phone up if not then I have provera to take on the 16th then call up and take the pill on day 2 and then it begins!! Fingers crossed!!
Hi kazza, glad it went ok today. Very exciting to finally be in the process after months of waiting around!
Did they say how often they'd have to monitor you for over stimming? I'm quite worried about it as from what I've read it can be quite painful. What's provera?
From what the doctor told me on the phone (but I was a bit caught off guard so may not be 100% right) is that you take the bcp from day 1 of your period for 3 weeks & then start the sniffing drugs. Is that what they told you? I know you ring up on day 1 of your period to tell them, but do you know when you go in to collect your schedule?
Provera is a pill you take for 8 days to induce a bleed because I'm irregular. If I don't have a period by the 16th I will take this. I was told to call on day one of my period and start taking bcp pill day two for three weeks, then I got muddled think you start sniffing at the end of bcp. They said towards the end of stimming I might have to go for a scan daily, they will start me on a low dose of stimming at first and take it from there!
I think it's classed as long protocol but I didn't ask! Hope I don't over stim as they will abandon
