follie update, saline flush, and hypnotherapy

Hello ladies :)

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I went to my first follie update this morning, and have 5 follies around 12mm.

My RE always says "your ovaries are very polycycstic" and today said "you're ovaries are just more sensitive than other patients". Both of which scares me. I'm now worried about quality -- does anyone else have "lean PCOS" and respond super fast to meds?

Since this is my last IUI, my RE wants to do a "saline flush". Apparently, they flush the tubes and mix in a little bit of lidocaine, which is supposed to decrease the amount of natural killer cells/TNF-blocking agents. Has anyone had this done? I'm wondering if it is like an HSG, which is not fun.

Lastly, I have my first hypnotherapy appointment scheduled for this Thursday. I'm excited! And a little skeptical. Anyone else been to hypnotherapy?

    I'm so sorry, sweetie. It's so tough to hear. Does Dr. Z think it is the stimulation protocol? How's everything else going? Intralipids OK?

    No he seemed pretty surprised by it...luckily I had so many that there were still some good ones in the bunch.

    I had my second intralipid infusion during my ER.  My % of NK cells jumped way up after the first one unfortunately, so hopefully the second one helped.

    Other than not being able to potty for almost a week now, I am doing pretty good.  Indifferent  LOL

    Oh no!! You poor thing! I'm keeping everything crossed for a positive beta for you :) About the Intralipids...I've heard of them going up at first, then going down.
