I am new to this site as well as very new to ivf. So i thought this would be a good place to start to help me understand what is happening to me!!
I have just commenced my first cycle on ivf and have only made it to the first scan (7 days on Puregon) to be told that i had not responded to the drugs and I had absolutley no follicles!
Given that mine and my husband situation was a little different from most, we had both gone in to ivf very positive. He is 49 and has had a vasectomy and I am 34 with a history of endometriosis which has not long been removed via surgery. Although we haven't been trying to concieve naturally at all due to our circumstances we always felt that when we were ready that ivf would help us to achieve a baby.
My dr has shown a lot of surprise in that i haven't responded to the drugs, we have also discovered in this process that I have a low ovarian reserve, and it seems that the dr is suggesting i may have early menopause!
I am devastated to say the least! I had no idea that anything was wrong with my body, other than the endo, to look at me I am very healthy, I don't smoke or drink ect and I am very active with a normal cycle.
After 7 days of injections my dr has decieded to cancel the cycle! Has anyone else gone through this? and if so what has been your experience/outcome?
I feel like this dr thinks I am the too hard basket case becasue I don't fit in with the "90%" of women who respond and rather than try and help me would rather throw his hands up in the air and so can't help you.
We have been attending the City Fertility Clinic at John Flynn, is there anyone who has had expereince with these guys as well??
