    Hkiegal I was thinking of you and I am very happy for you! It's a very good result and hope that, in 2 weeks, you'll have even bigger news!
    Tomorrow I have my first scan after these 5 days of injections, so I will be able to tell you something new. Good luck to all of us!

    Hi girls! I went for my scan today, after 5 days of jabs. During the scan, the doctor said I have 3 follicles on one ovary and 3-4 (maybe more) on the other, still small sizes. So she prescribed me Gonal F of 450 IU ( I was on Gonal 300 IU) and started the other injections (for stopping an eventual spontaneous ovulation) which I cannot remember the name (cause I choose to make them in the hospital). These for today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. On Thursday I will have the blood test and another scan and maybe on 14th of March the ER. What do you thing about it?
    Wish luck to everybody!

    Hi Adrianna
    It's brilliant if you don't have side effects...especially since as your scan shows you are obviously producing follicles.

    The tentative ER date of 14 March makes sense. You will have a couple of blood tests to monitor your estrogen levels and scans to check that there are no dominant follicles.

    Everything sounds fantastic. Looking forward to your next update.

    Today I felt tired and the other injections are quite painful. What means "dominant follicles" dimsum mum?

    Hi lovie
    Dominant follicles are when you have one or two follicles that are bigger than the smaller ones.
    Why you don't want one dominant follicle is: *from INCIID

    Follicles grow 1 to 2 mm a day both while taking ovulatory stimulants and after the HCG shot.


    Follicles generally need to be at least 15-16 mm to contain fertilizable eggs. If the smaller follicles are close in size to the lead, they may "catch up" and release. Otherwise, most likely only the lead follicle will ovulate.

    xxx
    So a dominant follicle means fewer eggs.
    Your dr is very experienced in adjusting your meds to make sure the follicles grow together. It's very early days yet, you're responding really well!!!

    Sorry that you're feeling tired though. That's definitely a side effect. Hang in there.
