Yesteday I had my 1st appointment at our new IVF clinic (antral follicle check)! The RE is nice and I felt comfortable with him. He said I have 8 eggs on each side, which apparently is a good number. This is my first appointment since we lost our pregnancy about 5 weeks ago. I started the Pill and the plan is to start injectables next month and if all goes well, egg retrieval mid November. I'm very excited, and praying we have a successful IVF!

My CD3 #s:

prolactin 5
FSH 5.2
LH 1.5

I got these numbers just today - does anyone know if these are good?

Best of luck Lisa! I don't know what the other 2 mean off the top but your FSH (egg quality) is great! It's suppose to be under 10 so you are well in that window! I can't wait to hear the success of your IVF!

Your LH is a bit low, like mine.. but I'm still not totally sure what it means.

Lisa,
16 total (8 x 2) is an awesome number for an AFC u/s! This number shows great resting follicles - good potential for each of those to develop an egg with stimulation!!!!!!!!!

As for the bloodwork, I refer to this website all the time.....(I have it bookmarked!)

Congrats on a wonderful appointment!

Hi ladies, thanks all for the warm wishes!

Norina, hi sweetie, congrats on week 10!!!!!!

Astrid, blinkie in!

Kim, I don't know what it means either, but I don't think low is bad (ratio of high LH to FSH would be bad I think) So you're ok!

Michelle, thanks so much for the link!!! Awesome link!
