Not sure about dhea level.. I was told to check testosterone and that is should be under 2. Was there a normal range reference on the results?
Yeah Sarah I'm delighted that it seems to be only a small problem and that it's easily treatable. Fingers crossed we're all on the right road now!

Yeah mine is 0.6 nmol which looks to be within normal range. Sorry I dono why but I thought dhea was meant to give an indication of egg quality but I guess once it’s in normal rNge should be ok :)

Hi everyone. We are all waiting for something this month it looks like. Hopefully not too far away from the next positive test on here. I am due af 2m and will be trying naturally because of holidays before going to iui in early Sept. Oliviasmum did you get your doc to test after?

Always a waiting game ladies but here's hoping the wait will eventually be worth it.
Lorraine that's great that your other tests came back negative. When will they put you on the steroids?
MrsA it's good to be getting a few bits done while you're waiting.
Sarah I just decided to switch off and really enjoy my summer so I ate and drank and was merry! Think we need to do that too. I started back at the gym now and I'll start on the food side of things now too. We will get there!
Have been waiting to ovulate to book in for biopsy. Been using a mixture of dealz and boots tests. Thought it was looking very close so did a clear blue one today and not even close. I'm just worried ive missed it now.

Definitely need to do that Michelle. Iv a wedding this weekend so will have a few but will try take it easy but thats the end of the booze then. I wish i had the motivation for the gym so fair play!

I always use the internet cheapies and find them great...if you did miss the peak even if you bd any of the days leading up to it you might be covered! I start once i see ewcm and stop after my temp rises which is usually a day or 2 after the positive opk. I forgot how much energy it takes to bd so much lol!!

Go and enjoy the wedding Sarah. It'll do ye good. Unfortunately we can't dtd this month if I'm getting the biopsy done (Not unprotected anyway). I thought I was close to a positive on the cheapie ones at the weekend. Then the Boots ones looked almost positive yesterday but the clear blue showed not fertile at all. All I can do is keep testing over next couple of days and hope tgat it's not too late to book biopsy.

So i had my lining scan today cd13 to see howy lining was looking and its perfect 11.4mm and trilamner so thats a relief after the mess it was on my last stim cycle. So looks like i wont be adding the clomid. I also know im about to ov as i had an almost positive opk and an 18mm follicle today. So the bd continues!

Go for it Sarah!! That's great news about your lining I know it was really worrying you. Maybe it was just a bit overactive after your hysto and just needed to sort itself out.
Michelle I'm the worst in the world for reading opks but I never seem to catch mine as definitely darker than control. I kind of just go with the darkest it gets and when it drops back to light again I take it as ovulation day. When I was tempting it was always after it went light again that my temp rose. Maybe check with your consultant?

Sup ladies Michelle hope you’ve get the surge soon. I HATE any opks that aren’t clearblue just because the smiley face is all I can understand.

Oh Sarah good luck with the babymaking fingers and toes crossed.

Great news about the lining Sarah! Ya never know, miracles do happen! Did anyone watch that programme last night?
Lesson learned re opks, have ordered clearblues for next cycle (and no mixing of tests!). Clinic won't book biopsy cos I can't give definite positive opk...

Oh no Michelle that's really crap! That's a good idea about tempting though. It is handy...just get into the habit of reaching for the thermometer first thing when you wake. I have one with an alarm that saves the temps so you don't even have to write them down. I'm not using it so if you want to borrow it PM me x
Girls I have to say I feel so good at the moment. No idea why but thank God! I feel so different from even this time last year when we had barely started on this road never mind the all out stress of the april/may! I feel really positive and hopeful and excited about trying again!

Yeah I have to say I feel a lot more positive in recent weeks then I had in a long time. I think the break really did me good. Glad to see you’re feeling good too Lorraine XX

I'm disappointed about the biopsy but I know it's my own fault. I never did try temping because I didn't think I'd manage it. Lorraine that would be great if you don't mind?
Long may this positive buzz last ladies!

What programme Michelle? My af has arrived. Great to have the next cycle in sightas we haven't been allowed try since chemical in April. I don't feel any pressure coz not expecting to conceive naturally so feels like pressure is off.
