And the RE says...

...that follistim is more potent than gonal-f, so I have been provided with the correct dosage of 625 iU. Hmmm. Well, I suppose all those times I was using both, I messed the dosing up. Oh well, it didn't seem to do any harm.

I don't really care, to be honest. At least a lower dose means a slight reduction in drug expenditure. And I don't think dosage matters at this point. I have no hope whatsoever about this cycle working, and am really resenting spending the money on it. I should have stopped by now. I mean, I shouldn't, because I would always think "what if" and so for my future mental health I know I need to do it. But I should have stopped. Because it isn't going to work and I am just throwing good money after bad.

Well, what's done is done. And I really do agree that doing this cycle will give you closure if the results turn out similar to the last cycle. But there's also a chance it will finally work... Hang in there, It's got to be so difficult for you... I feel for you and am thinking about you constantly.
Hugs and kisses from AZ.

I'm sorry you're feeling so down about the cycle (I understand why, and maybe it's protective to feel negative about it, but I'm still sorry). I hope you get that one good egg/embryo....

Wow. I'm also really surprised that gonal-f and follistim aren't interchangeable as far as the dose goes. Like you, I had always been told they were equivalent to one another.

I do understand how you're feeling about this next cycle. I'm right there with you as I consider #8. I think it's worth it though if only to not go throughout life wondering "what if".
