Don't know what to think

Decapeptyl Injection day 35
Menogon Injection day 6

I still dont think it is working. No pain, no discomfort at all. I should be really bloated and uncomfortable by now, it is day 6. My translation is NO FOLLICLES. My fears, that the Professor aborts the whole cycle.

I will find out on Monday as that is another scan and blood day. I can't beleive that I have been doing this every single day for 35 days.

My mother arrives in Israel tommorrow morning, and we are all bursting with excitement. "Welcome Granny" Banners made, we are all (me and the children) off to the airport early tommorrow morning. House spic and span. No maid; me exhausted.

And scared, terrified that this has all been another total loss. Don't know what to think.

PS. Mouse is still winning. Cat/Rabbi/ electric devices/glue traps/poison/traps, all no use.


"Q: In which cases does removal of the fallopian tubes improve the outcome?
A: In recent years, impressive evidence has shown that hydrosalpinx (swollen fallopian tubes, filled with fluid) can reduce chances of implantation. It seems that the reason for this is that the fluid in the fallopian tubes contains inflammatory products that leak into the abdominal cavity and damage the embryo trying to implant itself in the endometrium. In cases of recurrent failure of IVF therapy, the condition of the fallopian tubes should always be assessed using a hysterosalpingogram and ultrasound scan. If the state of the fallopian tubes is very poorly, and might affect the implantation of the embryos, the benefit of their removal should be considered. The removal of oneor both fallopian tubes is performed by laparoscopy, where a laparoscope (a fine telescope) is inserted through an umbilical incision."
