How do you know if you are down regulating successfully before 1st scan?

Good day everyone.

I am new to this site and it's so nice to know that there are people going through the same situation as you are and loads of information are at hand.

I'm on day 12 of Suprecur Nasal Spray and is due for my Gonal F Injections in two days time. I had my AF on day 9 of Suprecur, lasted for 2 days, and it was not as heavy as my normal period. I am just hoping it's normal. As I read some threads here, some people had problems waiting for their AF before scan, can anyone tell me if mine was ok? How would I know that I am down regulating just fine, and that my 1st scan will show my lining is thin enough? This cycle does really take over your life and that's all I can think about every second of the day. Can't get proper sleep, keep browsing the internet every so often. I am so excited about my injection (should be afraid of the needles but hey I'm sure it will be worth it).

I am kinda scared of my 1st scan, what if I am not DR as I don't feel any side effects of the spray, is it normal not to get any side effects?

Thanks so much and baby dust to everyone who's going through the same journey.

Hi hun

Welcome to fz.

Everything you have described sounds perfectly normal and right on track. With regards to whether your lining will be thin enough there really is no way of knowing until the scan.

If you want to chat to other people at a similar stage the april buddies thread is a great place. Perhaps someone can post you a link cause i on my phone.

Good luck with everything and if you have any other questions please just

I didn't get any symptoms when I was down-regulating (very lucky, I know) and began to think it hadn't worked. It did. Try not to worry.
Good luck

Hi huni It's really hard on your didst cycle It's so new and scary but tryto trust the clinic they do this over and over so Will know what they are looking for. My clinic never to a baseline scan but assume as long as you've had a period then you are down regged I.e. your hormones are in shut down or your ovaries are until you start the stimms.

As for feeling obsessed with it that is natural too but it also means you get more stressed so try to live along side if if you can and have things planned so It's not the be all and end all. Either outcome has It's own set of worries and nothing you can do to control it than do the best for your body xxxx

Good luck !

Thank you all for your reassuring comments.

I know it 's really hard to take your mind of it, especially if the day of your ER and ET draws nearer. Me and hubby had been on the waiting list for about 3 years, as according to the consultant, there had been a problem with the storage facilities of the RFC for the sperm that will be collected on his biopsy. So the procedure has been delayed for more than a year, and finally got it this January(thankfully they found some swimmers! )then things sped up a bit.

It's just really good to know that there are people who are always ready to give you advice and comforting words.

Thanks again to everyone and best of luck to all TTC. : D

Sounds like you've had a long frustrating wait to get to where you are having the SSR does slow it down we contemplated trying that route as hubby has complications but in the end the odds were stacked against us so we decided to use a donor and it was quite quick after that.

The ladies on here are fab it specialist here for us ladies going through treatment so I've always felt at home as the others have said join the cycle buddy thread and hopefully you will be joining me in the BFP announcements very soon xxx
