Walk out from the depression ........

It has been about 2 weeks since I last logged in.......

I've been trying to tell myself that this IVF cycle cancellation may not be a bad thing since God may have worked it out this way as it may not be the right time to have baby or my body is not ready for the invasive ER procedure yet ...........

Maybe God has planed for me to have my baby in a better timing and when my body is in a better condition to conceive ...........

So I wont give up in my quest to have my own baby!

I look forward to my AF to come, then I'll do the blood test to check on my FSH, E2 & AMH so that Dr Loh can help me customise a protocol for me which can yield better result.

Ovarian Reserve Testing (ORT)

On Tuesday when I went to do a follow-up scan, it was sort of expected that the follicles didnt grow at all.

Dr Loh explained to me that the blood test reviewed that I didnt have indication of good growth hormones and unlikely that the eggs will get stimulated any further.

So he's suggesting that I go for AMH testing to help determine my egg reserve & FSH test before he planned my next cycle treatment.

So when my next mens come, on CD2 or 3, I need to go to KKH to do the above blood test. 
Dr predicted that my next mens will be late since it's I unlike I'll be ovulating in this cycle, so mens should only come in a month's time. 
After my blood test result then I'll see him again to discuss about my next cycle treatment.

He thinks that the next one should be a short protocol where I wont be given any BCP nor Lucrin to suppress my natural hormones.
On D2 of the mens, I should be given stimulant drug for about 12 to 14 days to stimulate the follicles and he think I should be able about 1 or 2 eggs.

I'm rather confused with why I'm being classified as DOR (Diminishing Ovarian Reserve) since my most recent FSH showed 2 and E2 was in satisfactory level.

I've done some research on the DOR & ORT and think that this link is rather easy to understand.

I looked forward to a successful short protocol cycle.
I'm still hopeful to use my own eggs to produce my babies ...........
