My gravid beardie will not lay her eggs..

Postby Brittneesmile » Thu Jun 20, 2019 8:16 pm

It’s been almost two months. I’ve gone to the vet twice, last week and a month ago. She is still gravid... I’ve done various things to help. I’ve used a large tote with play sand, I’ve tried coco fiber and I’ve tried both things in part of her tank. I’ve tried with a che and no light and I’ve tried with her heat lamp.. I don’t know what to do. I’m starting to get worried about her ending up egg bound..
I put her in her lay box and she just stands there or lays down in it..

This can be very frustrating. What did the vet say about egg placement? Has she decreased
on her eating at all yet?
If she hasn't shown any interest in laying, but has eggs or undeveloped follicles (unshelled),
then she may be reabsorbing them which means her body will uptake & absorb them but not
lay them.
Has she tried to lay but strained at all?

Sounds very much like Follicular Stasis? Can we have an update please
