We now have approximately 5/6 follicles in the running..with a few more lagging behind. This is fairly shocking news for me – this is the same kind of response I have gotten on max stims. There is a theory out there (Dr. Schoolcraft in case you are wondering) that says more medication makes poor egg quality in older women. I am doing this IUI instead of an IVF to determine how my body would respond on fewer med dosages and so far we are seeing that perhaps I don’t need all that extra medication..and maybe even the high dosages have been hurting my eggs. I don’t have a great deal of faith in my husband’s sperm, however so this was always going to be an experiment. However! His sperm quality has dramatically improved (to the point where he is now considered a normal, fertile male rather than sub fertile). He has huge volume, motility and 14% normal forms (up from 5% a few years ago). Poor C will look forward to the day when he is allowed to sit in a bath again.
Looks like I am triggering on Saturday night…
I tried to vote today in Georgia but the line was about five hours long…and so I will wake at the crack of dawn on Tuesday and cast my vote for the only candidate in my lifetime that could inspire such action.
Up very soon – IVF #4, 5 and 6…..
