My ovaries are HUGE

mo - October 16

3 days of Follistim and 1day of menopur (75IU) and my ovaries are so big they are touching each gross is that?

Today was my 1st ultrasound and the nurse counted 25 follies, ranging from 7.8-11mm(is it mm??) in diameter. My estradiol was 930!!!

Needless to say, they are monitoring me closely. I had 4 more days of FSH but i've been told to only take menopur.

Guess we shall see....another appt tomorrow

Is your tummy bloated with your ovaries??

I just recently had my egg retrieval on Saturday. I'm having the transfer on Thursday. I had 32 follicles in my right ovary and 14 in my left. Believe me, I'm happy to have follicles in the first place, but I couldn't wait to get them out. I felt nauseous and crampy all day Friday. I was nervous about the retrieval, but being uncomfortable made me look forward to some relief.
Mo- how are you doing now?

Hi Ahearnm,

Cycle was canceled because my estrogen kept dropping. :'(
I cried for about 30mins the next day...alone... i was more angry at the doctors than anything. Then i bucked up, and became an advocate, they know me by now...i call them at least 2x a week!!!

We just started another cycle. this time they have me on low dose HCG so i don't have so many follies in such a short time that they can't regulate....they know i'll be on their butts if anything goes wrong!!!

So, we're doing. okay.

Thanks for caring, I appreciate it
