Yahoo for a new plan! I always thought the same thing...I always broke down when AF showed, but then the next day I had to start thinking that I was at the beginning of a new cycle, and that really helped.
I think a little bit of an increase sounds reasonable to me, but of course I'm no expert

Sometimes MA is all a game of trial and error. Maybe you need to consider a different kind of injectable??? Talk with your RE about your other options. If he's not willing to up your dose, maybe he'll be willing to try a whole new drug and see how your body responds.
Good luck! I hope that whatever you and your RE come up with it results in a wonderful BFP to start off the new year!
Yet another wonderful siggy by HeatherW.... thank you so much!!!
A lot of it has to do with your ovarian reserve. When I was in testing, I did a clomid challenge test where I took a high dose of clomid to see how well I would respond. Well, I should have made 10-20 eggs and I only had 4 I think. This is how I was diagnosed with poor ovarian reserve. Anyway, my dose of follistim was always like 300 or something crazy high b/c I was such a poor responder. Actually my clinic said I was taking the highest dose they could prescribe. I forget what it was exactly. See if they will up your dose and hopefully that will help, good luck!
Thank you to *Kiliki* for creating the perfect siggy!
