Hi Nicole @nicole
I have had to discontinue the cycle. I was bleeding till day 16 of commencement and in the end they had to give me misoprostol to clear out the residue and allow the uterus contract. I’m deregulating now with Norethisterone for 10 days. Have an appointment tomorrow. Somehow i not perturbed as i wasnt really excited about this cycle.
We’ll be trying with another cycle by which time i hope to have gotten all psyched up.
Thanks for checking up on us.May 17, 2018 at 11:57 am #48347May 17, 2018 at 2:44 pm #48351May 17, 2018 at 3:57 pm #48355May 17, 2018 at 6:00 pm #48356
Hallo everyone- Thanks Nicole, my results came out on Monday, and was told it was in the normal range
FSH- 6.42 iu/l
LH- 3.0 iu/l as at day 3 of cycle
prolactin – 13.7mg/ml
TSH- 0.746 mIu/l at day 7
my transvaginal scan was good , but a HSG was recommended since everything is okay from these tests but it has to be next month.
Right now I really don’t know how to feel- I’m a bit scared and hubby thinks I’m getting worried unnecessarily as my blood pressure was a bit elevated and he is yet to go for his SSF. But I’m still taking the vitamins I’ve been taking since forever . Fingers crossed nowMay 21, 2018 at 9:53 am #48446
@adeoye hun, I’m so glad your test results came out fine. That’s definitely one thing to get out of the way. As for the anxiety, I totally understand why you would be nervous hun, but try to just have faith that hubby’s SSA and HSG will come out great. Just keep taking your vitamins, and I’m sure you’ll be great hunMay 21, 2018 at 3:06 pm #48448

Hi everyone, It’s been a great Month already.
Still on the Acupuncture therapy, 20k weekly…na die! But God has bee faithful.
Transfer is around the corner, I hope to have my chicken and chips soon after the transfer, then promise not to bath for the first 3 days …yeah I heard some women don’t even take a proper bath for the first week. LOL
I pray for a BFP….I’ll be back with my testimony.Like 2+May 23, 2018 at 8:29 am #48494
FruitfulVine @fruitfuldamsel hun, 20k weekly????? . Haaa. That’s expensive! But all for a good cause .
My dear, I didn’t bathe for the first 4 days . And I’m very anal and finicky, so you can imagine . But who baff epp? I was prepared to be dirty for a year, if that’s what it took.

I have been a silent follower for a while, tapping from all the knowledge you beautiful ladies share.
I have pcos, hubby has low sperm count (7 million) and low motility. We are starting our cycle on Tuesday and i am really believing God that this will be a success. I will like a few tips from experienced mama’s in house?
- Do i continue continue taking folic acid and metformin ?
- What can i do to avoid OHSS?
- Do i need to go on any for of diet to improve my chances?
Thanks as you respondMay 25, 2018 at 2:36 pm #48515
Welcome to our family, Ameera @beautifulameera
Good luck as you start your cycle, hun. We’ll put up a countdown ticker on the home page just for you .
I think you should continue with the folic acid, but you have to talk to your doctor about the metformin. As for avoiding OHSS, the major thing is to ensure you are tracked often, so your doctors can tell whether they need to reduce your dosage, if you’re responding too ‘well’. You should also stay very hydrated and drink Gatorade or coconut water. Those help.
With respect to general tips, you might find the following articles helpful 🙂
