I am on my first cycle of IVF and have been taking Follistim and Menopur. My doctor raised my dose of Follistim with still no growth. I am on day 7 and my ultrasounds show that my follicles have not grown past 10. I will have another ultrasound in 2 days to determine if it will be a failed cycle. My estrodial has been increasing and is now a little over 200. With PCOS I have cut out dairy and most artificial sugars from my diet and try to include almond milk, nuts, vegetables, and chicken. I have been taking Metformin and also Cabergoline for high prolactin levels which have evened out now. I am wondering if not having dairy is impacting follicle growth, but know that I have noticed a great difference in lowered inflammation since stopping dairy. Is there any hope for follicles to grow in my next cycle? Anyone have experience with this? I'm trying not to give up, but it is hard.
