Hi,

Im on day 6 of stims, and day 8 of my cycle, in months past I usaully have at least one measurable follie. Went for ultrasound today, no follices, low estrogen , thin lining, and still spotting from period, which is usually long gone by now. Any ideas. So fustrating, going thru this for a year and half now. Btw I just turned 38....

Thanks
Kelly

Repronex has FSH and can further shut down your follicles.

What other protocols have you tried?

E2 is necessary to support follie development, so if you don't have enough resting follies to give you a good e2 base so AF stops and you can grow follies, you need help.

After months of Drs saying "you're in menopause" I went to an RE who just shrugged and said, you need e2. So I took estrace starting on CD3. I o'ed on CD16 and got pg that cycle.

Ive tried clomid/follistim, follistim/repronex, clomid alone. I actually got pregnant on follistim/repronex in Dec 2011, but miscarried at 8 weeks. Had only one mature follicle when I conceived.

My resting follicles usually range around 13 or so. Not sure why they wouldnt mention a estrogen pill to me, so fustrating!

Thank You
