8 follicles and an increase in FSH

My sister went in for her first scan today - day 6 - she has 8 follicles. Cause she is sooooo new to this and hasn't lived and breathed IVF - she didn't ask about sizes - drat it - she said she was in and out within minutes. I had instructed the poor thing to get number and size - but in the heat of the moment she forgot!!

The doctor has upped her dose of fsh from 175 to 275. I was of the belief doc was being overly cautious with the 175 - she kept saying she didn't want to make my sister sick - and I couldn't argue with that. But the woman (my sister) has just turned 39.

She doesn't go back now til Monday - which seems a bloody long gap considering the drugs have been boosted.

Anyway - I am trying not to stress and worry - no good will come of it. My sister is going to have some accupuncture - and hopefully the increase in drugs will have them all growing well.

I hope you got the synarel question out of the way. How is your sister doing on the drugs? I can't wait to see how it all goes for the two of you. I'm hopefully starting a donor cycle with my niece in the next few months. What kind of tests do they make you go through? Sperm has to be quarantined for 6 months, do they do anything like that with egg donation?
Anyhow, looking forward to your next post.

HI Andi, just checking in to see how things are going. Do you have a date for egg retrieval yet?
