sad news



Estrogen is only 315. Cycle may be canceled. I’m devastated. What a waste of $10k.

    Oh no I hope it doesn’t come to that. I’m so sorry. Will be thinking of you.

    Noooooooooo…..!!!! I don’t understand the IVF cycle things so I don’t understand why with so many beautiful eggs your cycle could still be canceled with low estrogen… I am sending intense estrogen-raising vibes your way, and crossing my fingers and everything else!!!

    For my current injectables cycle, on my 8th day of Gonal-F (which is where i think you are?) my estrogen was only at 230- and then within TWO days it jumped up to 738!! Hang in there- I am sending good vibes your way!

      Thank you Jules! Your comment gives me some hope.

    I’m confused. Didn’t you just start stimming? If so, then why is 315 too low?

    Sending you a hug and hoping that the news tomorrow is much more optimistic!

      No, yesterday was day 8 and if all these follicles had eggs we would expect to see much higher numbers.

    Hoping it will rise- BUT if the cycle is cancelled you should now have to pay for more than the U/S’ that you have had (and monitoring). Fert. centers will work with you ($ wise) on a cancelled cycle by converting it in this, then you start again fresh with the next cycle.
    Hoping for a jump for you…

    I hope this keeps climbing, it sounds like it happens. Maybe it’s just slow….keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    • February 7, 2012

      My body is traditionally slow and an underachiever. Maybe it will pick up the pace a bit. I’m on 300iu of gonal now. Bring on the crazy(er) lady!

    no, no, no. you are the rock star stimmer, I’m hoping Julie’s estrogen story gives you hope! I am praying and sending all the estrogen I have your way. I know “thinking positive” means nothing right now so im not going to pretend like its possible to keep positive. Have some dessert tonight or have husband give you a foot rub. both should help!

      Katie, I really appreciate your prayers. I got so excited this afternoon before the call and started thinking about ALL MY CHILDREN that I could have from 25 eggs, and still have embryos left to donate (a personal goal of mine. If I were younger I would do egg donation after my child was born to “give back” to the community). Then I got this call and it all sort of spiraled out of control.

    Fingers crossed for you! it’s so frustrating when a cycle gets canceled. Here’s hoping for better news in the next couple of days…

  9. February 7, 2012

    Noooo! I’m holding out hope for you!

  10. February 7, 2012

    No, no, no. (((HUGS))) I’m truly gutted. Is it possible they misread your E2?

  11. February 7, 2012

    Fingers crossed x

    Now never think its a waste of 10k it’s a blip that’s all & not a waste as it takes you towards the end goal xx

    Sorry to hear, but lets hope it jumps to whatever it needs to be with more stims!! Since you have so many follicles its strange. I have no idea how it works with estogen levels because my clinic never told me my numbers. In fact they only tested once and that was when the follicles appeared to be ready according to the ultra sound measurements. Whatever the result was they just told me to inject stims one more day before triggering.
    Wishing you all the best!! Fingers crossed.

    • February 7, 2012

      Thanks for the good thoughts. I am surprised your clinic only checked levels once. Here’s to hoping mine is just being extra careful. How have you been feeling? Any relief in the morning sickness?

      • February 7, 2012

        Yes I’m hoping that too! How many days have you been on stims now? My follicles took a long time to get ready so maybe yours just need more time as well. I know a lot of private clinics in the US and UK seem to do a lot more testing of the levels than public hospitals in Europe. Sometimes it’s maybe not necessary, I don’t know. Although in your case it might be with your previous history. But I’m happy I never had this to worry about. Sometimes ignorance is bliss.

        As for me, I’m thankfully doing better!! I’m not throwing up anymore which is a huge relief. The nausea is still there but a manageable level. I feel more like myself again which is fantastic!! 🙂 Now just counting down the days to the NT scan on Monday.

  13. February 7, 2012

    My estrogen took a long time to rise on stims. I stimmed for 11 days and it didn’t make a big jump until close to the end. Hold onto some hope!

    Nooo! It doesn’t add up. I hope things improve for you. I’m pretty sure my E2 started off slow but it never seemed to be a great concern. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.

  15. February 7, 2012

    No! WTH? I hope there is still a chance. Keeping my fingers crossed that this cycle won’t be canceled.

  16. February 7, 2012

    I’m so sorry hun, the comments here sound like there’s still hope. When do you go in to be tested again? Crossing my fingers for you!!!

  17. February 7, 2012

    No way! I hope that things work out so you can continue with this cycle. I’m so sorry!
