    @nicole….i ran all the tests everything checked out okay. Sperm quality okay, embryo quality okay- embryologist says some are slow growers.
    However if things turn south by day 14 i will have a review and go right back.
    Maybe do a short protocol. They will just bear with me on the money part
    Woman’s not a money tree.
    I just feel unlucky really

    • Dawn @dawnm, let’s wait till day 14. When is your test date?

    • Dawn @dawnm, hopefully we’ll have a good outcome on day 14. I just need you to monitor your expectations. Yes, embryos grow differently in the uterus than they do in a petri dish, but I don’t want you getting disappointed. Praying along with you for a good outcome. :hug: :hug:

  • Dawn posted a new activity comment 2 months ago

    Yes they adjusted and it is my 1st cycle ever.

    Thank you @oluwakemine. Just wondering if anyone ever had luck with Morula

    • Darling Dawn @dawnm, I’m so sorry about how the cycle turned out. What was your history before cycling? Did you run FSH and AMH tests? And your husband’s sperm analysis? How was that?

      I won’t lie to you hun. A morula on day 5 isn’t good. That was the same issue I had with my 1st cycle. On day 5, more of my embryos were morulas than blastocysts.…[Read more]

    • Dawn @dawnm, I personally don’t know anyone, who transferred Day 5 morulas, so I can’t. However, it is known that Growth and development in a lab is not the same as inside a uterus. Who knows, the embies might just find it easier to develop faster in their natural habitat. Sending loads of sticky wishes your way.

    Merry Christmas Ladies. This is looking like another reason not to like christmas.
    My cycle has not been the dream, from poor response to the first FSH injections to few follicles and only 2 eggs retrieved which finally ended as morula on day 5. So i am here sad, uncertain and wishing i could sleep and wake to day 14.

    Because it was still…[Read more]

    • Dawn @dawnm, sending you lots of :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: At this stage, we can only hope for the best. Did they try to adjust your medications after scans showed poor response? Is this your first cycle with The Bridge?

    Just wondering if there is anyone cycling at Bridge clinic?

    Thank you @oluwakemine.

    Lets see how the day HCG scan goes.

  • Dawn posted an update 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hello Ladies, I ve bn away. No one prepares you for this experience, so i had my 2nd scan today and i am not responding favorably to follitrope after the painful injections. Now moving on to gonal F.

    I am irritated cos i cld have used GF which is easier they say to administer. Why try to save money and i go through pain.

    Has anyone experienced…[Read more]

    • Sending you loads of hugs Dawn @dawnm :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: Truly, nothing prepares you for the actual experience but it will be fine. I don’t know anyone, who’s had that experience but let’s see. Sorry dear, it will all be worth it at the end of the day.

    • Dear Dawn @dawnm hun, so sorry about the disappointing news, but thank God they discovered it in good enough time to change meds. From what I know, Follistim and Gonal-f are identical – they are both pure 100% FSH hormone. A drug like Menopur, on the other hand, is 50% FSH, 50% LH. It is mostly used in women who don’t produce enough LH on their…[Read more]

      • Thank you @nicole.

      • @dawnm: Yes, I experienced similar situation. The reason is because doctors start with an injection(s)/dosage and as one progresses they switch to other injection(s)/dosage based on how responsive your body is via a scan or blood test.
        And @Nicole has said it all. I once used Menopur and Gonal-f but later during the cycle my body was producing…[Read more]

  • @Oluwakemi …thank you. Working with bridge clinic
    <p style=”text-align: left;”>@Pearl..thank you. I will ┬áneed to discuss the options for injections. I just got my schedule and need to go for tutorials. I want to explore having some injections given to me at the hospital if i can agree a time that works for them.</p>

  • Hello Ladies, just wondering if anyone did the day 1 long protocol? What should i expect? Any watchouts or tips. Please help

    Hi @nicole i am based in Lagos.

  • Dawn posted an update 4 months, 1 week ago

    Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone has used a sperm donor? Sperm bank both local and abroad? Need help figuring out how to access one.

  • Thank you @nicole, @oluwakemine and @pearl…really appreciate.

  • Hello Ladies, planning on cycling soon. I have started taking folic acid, so i stumbled on pregnacare conception pills. I dont know how much folic is too much?

    Are there other thing i should do, i cant seem to not be fixated on the whole process and idea.
