sorry for the me post, but today I had appointment with FS after my last cancelled cycle - so dismal!
Basically my ovaries are really old, even for my age. He said I'll be going into menopause early for sure. he said it's pointless to test AMH as it would only confirm what we already know. He won't up the dosage (gonal 375) because it's like taking 6 panadols for a headache ie. unecessary, and you can't stimulate follicles that aren't there. I asked about DHEA - he said he wasn't allowed to prescribe it as the evidence is all of low quality (however he told me to get it from my GP). I asked about saizen and he said a definite no, it wouldn't help. He said I've done 1 'fair' cycle (resulting in DS) out of 3 so far, so the 'fair' cycle is probably a fluke.
His advice - try at least 3 more cycles and hope for another fluke. Short cycles this time, dosage gonal 300.
I have a second opinion appointment with another FS tomorrow and see what he has to offer??
As for what I think - I WILL get the DHEA script, I feel it's my only hope. I'm also taking CoQ10. Can't tolerate acupuncture unfortunately (too needle phobic after all this IVF!)
Well girls, hopefully I'll only be here for max of 6 months - either with a pregnancy or not. I just feel too old to be going through all this for too long - I would like to enjoy my life again and stop living as if I'm on hold.
I'll catch up on everyone and do personals later in week, but I hope everyone is going ok on this crazy and sometimes AMAZING journey.
