Response to Thanks Kiwichick!! I was really surprised by her reaction because she is a nurse.



I am so sorry that you had to hear words like thatthey sure sting, and I know how you feel. I just wanted to know that you are not alone in having similar comments from a Cooper nurse, which totally threw me for a loop. I have done 2 mini-IVFs with them so far, and each time I had a very poor response and/or empty follicle. During both of my IVFs, the first thing I heard from the nurse was (I am paraphrasing) You gotta make more eggs honey, this wont work with just 1 or 2, I am so sorry. REALLY? I mean, I know what she was trying to say, because I had empty follicle she was trying to make me feel better by saying that if I could just get more, it would improve my chances of having a follicle that wasnt empty. The first time, I shrugged it off, but the second time it really hurt me. I thought I was going to Cooper because they are understanding of these issues and DOR patients.

Also, regarding the EEsome people just get oversupressed on it, that happened to me. I think in some it helps to recruit more follicles, but I can tell you in my situation it shut me down for at least a week or more, the antrals would come and go, and the EE suppressed the effect of follistim injections too muchat any rate, the antrals change from day to day, so I dont know why she would say something like that to you. When I took EE, my AFC varied between 2 and 7, all within 10 days or so.

Hang in there! I dont think its over for you this cycle, unless you really feel more comfortable for some reason waiting to the next. Good luck happy.gif
