Not great news. I really though this protocol would make all the difference and grow these eggs together at a consistent pace but nooo, same news as last cycle. Only 8 follicles and sizes ranged from a 4 all the way up to 11. This is the alternate doctor and he was asking all sorts of questions about my last cycle - he said he would call after my E2 comes back and let me know what he is going to do to make the most from this cycle

I am pretty bummed right now. I don't see how any more follies will be able to catch up at this point which means we will be lucky to even get the same amount as last time (6 eggs, 4 mature).

Yuck, I forgot how much I hate that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach while you wait for the 'next' phone call.

maybe some are hiding? I'm hoping Stina!

Don't be bummed yet - Even if it's only 4 eggs, that still 4 eggs closer to a BFP I'll keep praying hun!

And it gets worse...E2 was only 203 (55 in US measurements). I barely moved after 4 days on stims. They are not changing my dosage, just go back on Friday. It's not looking good.

I am trying but all these freakin hormones make me cry at the drop of a hat It's hard not to think the worst with my E2 being that low...I mean with 8 follies the size they are, it should be higher (like triple). I just feel so deflated - I really thought this change in protocol was going to make the difference.

So much for sanity.

Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry that things aren't going the way you had hoped. It is still early in your stim process, though, so don't lose hope yet! We'll all keep our fingers crossed for you for lots and lots of good and EVEN follies.

Stina... I'm sorry that you didn't get better news at today's scan. I too was really hoping this new protocol would give you some better results.

Try not to get too discouraged yet though because you know a lot can change in a couple of days and you just may have a much better picture at your next check.

I know it's hard and the waiting is so awful but do your best! We're all here for you and I am definitely pulling for you and your follies to whip into shape over the next couple of days!

Okay calmer today. I have a theory...I think the Letrozole I have been on (last pills last night) is maybe what's causing the low E2. I am hoping anyhow. I have read a ton since I got home yesterday but in a nutshell, Letrozole "has been shown to reduce estrogen levels by 98% or greater". It also is supposed to have a huge estrogenic rebound effect when you come off of it so I would see that in the next day or so. More details in my blog if you are interested. For the time being I am holding on to the hope that all is going as it should be. Thanks for all the support my friends

I hope your theory is right! Hopefully your next E2 will be through the roof!
