Hey ladies -

There are a few of us who are ttc after mc's, however there will be ladies out there who are also ttc for the first time or second or third without success. If anyone is on, considering or had success on a super ovulation programme then do join us. How long did it take ? Did you try IUI with it.. ? Did you have PCOS?

Kicking this off and hoping some of you will join....

My opk is a lot lighter tonight so must've been ovulation sad

Pebbles73 Wed 17-Oct-12 18:51:03

Sorry Frankel have also only had letrezole on the super ov.

Well suddenly couldn't wait a minute longer as home alone with a frer test and if course it was another bfn for me. I think that unfortunately the only thing that is going to work is forking out ££££££ for ivf.......

Sorry your test was lighter Mel but don't give up yet.

Ok frankie yes I had menopur in April and exactly as u described. ari so good news. just so i understand then is it dr s doesn't see DQ match as a show stopper because he doesn't believe in it or that it is an indication and there is a chance ? Is this causing your mc's then?
Sorry I didn't quite understand and am v interested!
And WHAT is this new quicker conception thing fekkin bring it on or I'm likely to gauge my eyes out with a pencil one of these days or heading for a divorce. sad pebbles r u doing gonal F ?

lemonsherbet Wed 17-Oct-12 19:34:58

Frankel welcome to the SO thread. I also do not know but a quick dr google search and it looks like it can cause chance to cm. I know I should not use dr google.

Ari am glad Mr S was so positive and open minded. I am glad it is good news.

Pebbles73 Wed 17-Oct-12 19:38:18

Yes also want to know about this quicker conception thing', need all the help I can bloody get!! Duggs I am just on letrezole and this last go will be on 7.5mg. Slightly concerned don't really need it it the starflower oil caused the problem last month and will end up with too many follies. Having said that will take the risk of multiple pregnancy over one follie any day.
Really cheesed off can't make the meet up next week, really don't want to work as not a nice place to be at the mo. sad

lemonsherbet Wed 17-Oct-12 20:10:18

Do we know where we are meeting? Can someone pm me

lemonsherbet Wed 17-Oct-12 20:11:17

PS is there some badge or identifying handshake that we are meant to do. Just worried am going to walk up to random people going are you pebbles

Mel3062 Thu 18-Oct-12 03:10:38

Wish the meet was week after in half term sad nevermind one day...
I'm seeing mr s week after next so ill keep you informed....
sad pebbles, what did the starflower do? I got too many small ones without taking that so I think it can just happen sometimes. I hate the bfn or af sign with such a passion it's all so hard sad
Hoping rainbows is ok too.
Sorry frankel I've just had Letrozole but start gonal f soon. It was funny as its getting delivered to work and my friend wanted to give me it I just had visions of laying on the staff room floor!! They all know my cycle better than me!!
Bloody 3.06 hubby's just left to work away tonight bloody steroids.
Aw duggs it's so hard isn't it sad

duggs1976 Thu 18-Oct-12 05:58:16

Oh am thinking about the meet up I'd rather meet up with ladies on here in similar boat as nice as it is to meet pred ladies it would be so nice if we could meet. . Pebbles and mel would u prefer to push it back perhaps?

Chasinrainbows Thu 18-Oct-12 07:13:34

Hi Mel , thanks for thinking of me. I'm ok so far . Had a scan on Monday and saw the heartbeat. I'd had some bleeding ( just pink) on the Sunday night so I was worried. Currently at 6+5 so still a few milestones to pass. Hope you are ok? Waves to everyone. Sorry I've not been around much. Work has been full on so it's been work then bed sad

Pebbles73 Thu 18-Oct-12 13:40:02

I would live to be able to meet with you Duggs is just hard to say a date at the mo as font know how many Saturdays will need to work. Shall we see what dated works for Mel and I will sim for that? So sorry to sound so vague.

Mel because I have pcos (as does Duggs) we tend to over stimulate if anything with this kind of treatment and gave shears had at least three good size follies. The only thing I changed this month was taking the starflower oil and ended up with one follie as did Duggs so am pretty sure it might be down to that.....
Hope you get some sleep tonight!!

Rainbows you must have been relieved to see a heartbeat! Hope all goes well for you.

Pebbles73 Thu 18-Oct-12 14:08:09

Sorry for all the mistakes, on the iPhone!

duggs1976 Thu 18-Oct-12 14:13:39

interesting thing here as I emailed Louise (she is the loveliest person I've encountered during this whole hiddeous 3 year nighmare) and she mentioned Dr S has a new test he is using TNF Alpha - (which isn't new to Dr G and Ndwke etc) so it seems some of the other tests are proving themselves slowly to dr S. Anyway, Pebbles have you thought about this if Dr S seems to be coming around testing this ?

Don't worry if you are working weekends, it is difficult to get everyone on a fixed date.

Mel3062 Thu 18-Oct-12 17:15:21

Awe rainbows how lovely keeping fingers crossed.
Please don't change arrangements for me I'm sure they'll be another but that's so kind. Shame I'm so far away.
Wow about the starflower!!
Duggs it must be the same test they'll be telling me?!
Work and bed sounds like my life!!

Mel3062 Thu 18-Oct-12 20:33:52

Well after niggles and backache and saying no more opk... I did and there's still a line bizarre!! Wish I knew how to post a pic!

Arianrhod Thu 18-Oct-12 21:37:57

Mr S mentioned to me yesterday that he's now starting to use the TNF-alpha test routinely for those who are having difficulties getting pregnant, rather than for those who are recurrent miscarriers. Maybe this might help?

Arianrhod Thu 18-Oct-12 21:39:09

Btw remember choccy had the TNF-alpha test with Mr S.

Arianrhod Thu 18-Oct-12 21:46:28

Whoops, missed your question duggs. No, it's not the DQa Mr S doesn't believe in, he does recognise that could cause problems. However it should just be a case of immune suppressant since it is the immune system that will try to kill off any DQa match. It's LIT treatment that Mr S isn't convinced makes a difference, but even so he was prepared to arrange it for me if we wanted to do that. I also spoke to him about taking Clexane from BFP and he's very happy to do that, he is prepared to throw everything at it .. assuming we ever stay pregnant long enough to warrant taking it, of course!

Mel3062 Thu 18-Oct-12 22:57:11

Posted pic on opk photo club babycentre if anyone can spare a look x

duggs1976 Fri 19-Oct-12 08:14:53

Mel just checking you know most opks always have a line it just has to be as strong or stronger than the control line! Clear blue have a smiley face when u ovulate so there is no doubt. Haven't seen photo as on iPhone but just thought I'd better mention as ovulation will be a surge that happens over 24 -36 hours then it is over and this is what we look for! Sorry if you know all this and you have a permanent strong line if so that would be a bit strange and confusing!?

duggs1976 Fri 19-Oct-12 08:16:58

Well that's good ari I'm sure if it was not worth it he'd say as it won't look good on his statistics and would be un ethical. What a roller coaster!

Pebbles73 Fri 19-Oct-12 13:30:44

That sounds like something I need testing for seeing as it is so difficult for me to get pregnant. I never thought life would be shitty enough for me to take years getting pregnant only to then miscarry or be a chemical pregnancy. Ahhhh!!!
Currently waiting on af which seems to be delayed this month, must be cyclogest I took this month delaying it.
Was feeling really down yesterday say oh has booked a nice meal this evening and we are going for a few drinks first.

What cycle day are you on now Mel?

lemonsherbet Fri 19-Oct-12 18:31:37

Feeling a bit low, I got a BFP a couple of days ago and was feeling good yesterday-had the sore breasts and nausea. Today loss of pregnancy symptoms and getting period like cramps. Am still testing positive and no bleeding yet. Have a bad cold at the moment and part of me wonders if that triggered my immune system to be more active and so attack this pregnancy.

Sorry about the lack of personal messages.

Mel3062 Fri 19-Oct-12 19:09:51

Aw lemon fingers crossed :/
Pebbles I'm on day 29 x

Mel3062 Fri 19-Oct-12 19:47:49

Duggs yes I realise thanks about opks I've tested since a week last Sunday so nearly 2 weeks and got a line on each one and various positive lines its strange as not had ovitrelle this month and can't see me ovulating cd 29!?! My longest cycles been 32 x
