Hello, I'm new to IVF and to this forum and i'm desperate for some help and guidance.
I'm 39 y.o., AMH is 5.9, DOR, and cycling at Mt. Sinai Hospital. It's my first IVF attempt and i'm so lost and overwhelmed with all the lingo and information i'm finding on the internet, while getting very little information that makes any sense from my clinic - basically i only get to speak to nurses (not doctors) which are not really answering my questions - or maybe i just don't understand their answers.
Here is my concern. I had a round baseline tests (day 3 blookwork + ultrasound) in June 2018 prior to starting IVF earlier this month. On that day 3 ultrasound (in June 2018) my antral follical count was 10 - 6 in one ovary and 4 in the other.
Fast forward to September: From day 21 of last cycle until the day I started stims, i was on Estrace 4MG per day. My period came and they "assigned a day 3" (which was my ACTUAL cycle day 7) - first scary part. On my "assigned day 3" (actual cycle day 7) i went in for bloodwork and ultrasound and started taking stims: Puragon 300IU and 75IU. Did that for 4 days and today i went for my "day 7" (actual cycle day 11) bloodwork and ultrasound - They only saw 2 follicles on the right ovary (i overhead them say 0.8 - i'm assuming size?) while my left ovary is "resting" - so nothing.
I'm so confused how can the original antral follical count of 10 become just 2 follicles with all the stims that i've been taking? Does one at all relate to the other - my nurses says it doesn't have anything to do with one another but reading from all the other forums, it looks like it does relate?
I am not sure what i was expecting as my clinic really gave me nothing to go by, but after reading so many forums, i was expecting a much higher number. They're now saying that they may cancel this cycle if nothing happens on the next round of tests, which is in 3 days from now, but for now to just continue taking what i've been taking and come back in 3 days.
Any insight would be very helpful and appreciated!
