My ER this morning went ok. Well, it went ok as in they were able to easily access my ovaries & I came out of anasthesia just fine. However, out of my 12 follies that measured 16+ as of Monday's u/s, they only got 5 eggs; over half of my follies were empty. I was expecting more eggs obviously, but @ the same time I'm thinking we may have finally answered (in part @ least) why nothing has worked for us so far. I've had 8 IUIs & no BFPs. It is quite possible my "beautiful" follies (2-3 each cycle) probably contained no eggs. Knowledge is power & I've been suspicious of "empty follicle syndrome" for a while to be honest. Of course I was hoping to have something to celebrate on my 4th wedding anniversary, but it is what it is. I'm just hoping we get something to transfer of decent quality. I know it only takes one, but this is not what I expected at all. I've been instructed to start Crinone once a day tomorrow morning (good gooey times!) & call the embryologist for a fert report in the afternoon.
