Feeling discouraged

I am on cycle day 22, at the doctor yesterday I had one follicle measuring just over 16 and my E2 level was only at 52. I've been taking follistim injections since CD3 and I'm really having a hard time with the fact that I don't have any "real" results yet. I feel like they are still being pretty conservative with my dose of follistim; they started me @ 75/day and have now bumped me up to 87. Has anyone had a similar experience? I'm really wondering why they haven't increased my dosage more.

Hello again canwedothis--I am sorry you're feeling discouraged. Since you're asking about injectables, you may want to post on the Infertility Treatment community if you haven't already. They're super supportive and helpful.

Hopefully someone will answer here, too.
