Hi ladies-
Well, We got the ok from my RE to cycle in Nov. (that will be 3 months after our 17 wk. loss) We are very anxious and nervous.
I have a question for anyone who might know..
My RE commented that my last two cycles were very good, lots of eggs (12) & good fertalization %. but when I read my perscription I noticed he changed my stims from Follistem to Gonal F ?
Does anyone know if there is a reason to switch stims from cycle to cycle? Does your body need a change or do you become resistant or something? I am just perplexed about his comment that all went very well the last two times - but yet he changed the meds????
I am going to call him before I fill this Rx, but I thought someone here might have experience with this..
I must say that I am so glad to have a plan - it really helps me look forward and have some hope!
P.S. Good Luck to all in the 2ww! ***
