    Default Hints, Tips, Advice and Suggestions for new IVF'rs

    Hi ladies, I havn't been on here for awhile I've been trying to have a clear and positive mind which I find harder every day I guess when you think of Ivf you think it's automatically going to be easy to get pregnant but as many of you know that's not the case. I'm on my 3rd cycle now I've had my first stim cycle then used my frozen emby with a natural cycle and unfortunatly bfn both times. So I'm on all needles again I totally forgot how much they affected me!! I'm on Chinese herbs now and the whole way through I've being doing acupuncture, I'm trying to be really positive but finding it really hard.

    Thanks for the replies ladies, feeling alot better about the low AMH levels now, had our initial consults with the councellor and nurse, she showed me how to do the injections and now its just a waiting game for day one to roll around so we can start our first stim cycle of IVF.
    - esrp, im sorry to hear about your results, and hope you find a donor asap. i cant believe there is no registry for donors! thats ridiculous! i wonder if we could start something on this forum? have you tried contacting all the different fertility clinics? w
    Also, what is DHEA? what does it involve?
    today im trying to look up diets and supplements for preparing my body over the next few weeks before we start, and found a great place in East Melbourne (and practicing in Sydney also) an IVF Support Clinic which specialises in accupuncture, chinese medicine and herbalists as well as nutrition - their website is acupunctureIVF.com.au

    -clucky14, how are you going, have you started your cycle yet? i hope everything is going smoothly for you.. im so nervouse about giving myself injections! but at the same time, i cant wait to start!

    - chances, thanks so much for the advice, must get some coQ10 and Royal Jelly, can i just get it from the chemist? is Royal Jelly a tablet?? (sorry if i sound vague!) Did they cancel your cycle because you overstimulated? or did they go ahead? my doc has me on an antagonist cycle with the lower dose to see how i go, 250mg i think for the FSH.. and Gonal F 150mg off the top of my head..
    Im a bit wary how ill go on all the hormaones, hopefully wont be too crazy!

    Best of luck to you all, i hope there is some exciting news for everyone next time im reading this forum!!!!!

    Default Hints, Tips, Advice and Suggestions for new IVF'rs

    So glad I found this thread I have first appointment with genea norwest (anyone going to or have seen dr lighten) in november. So I have a lot of reading to do in this thread so I can be prepared.
    My story:
    I have already got 2beautiful children. Dd was conceived while I was on the low dose pill and ds was first cycle off the pill. DH and I have been ttc #3 for ....... Months I was seeing another FS and he had me on clomid 50mgs for 3cycles and it hasnt done anything (to help shorten my irregular cycles). DH and I have been checked and all test have come back clear. Look forward to reading all about your wonderful tips and hearing about your journey

    Hello

    I don't know what thread to comment on as there are so many and each relevant one seems to have the last post dated in 2008 - so I am jumping in here!

    I just want to share that I feel very sad. I started my period today after my first IVF attempt - 10 eggs retrieved, 8 fertilised, 5 made it to 3d, had 3 embryo implants at 3d and 2 frozen, and so thought I had a really good shot.

    Also thought I had prepared myself for the worse, but I hadn't - hit me hard today.

    I'm 43 and feeling like it's all over for me. Does anyone know are there any threads about 2 time success or success with older women?

    Many thanks

    Hi Mole1,

    Sorry to hear AF arrived . This IVF caper isn't an easy thing and so much can go on BUT it is still possible that you can get pregnant.

    I've added 2 links below. 1 is for the IVF over 40 thread and the other is for the IVF over 40 Graduates. Feel free to join in, there are a few mature ladies going through what you are and they are a great support network.

    I'm a lucky one, I finally had a daughter at age 41 after a rough ride.

    All the best

    Hi ladies,

    I am currently 7wks3days pregnant and would like to share my IVF tips that i think were critical to my success. FYI my first cycle was cancelled due to overstimulation and although my dose seemed a tad too low the second time round we got 6 eggs, 4 fertilised and because my clinic works off 2dt we had 1 put back and 2 frozen. I got my BFP off a 6 cell grade 3 embyro.
    So heres what i did:

    3 mths prior i ate healthy (leafy veges, nuts, fruits) and did 30-1hrs exercise 5 times a week. I also had started supplements some i had taken for over a year while ttc such as folic acid which i changed to a preconception pill. I took royal jelly, Co enzyme q10, maca root, and spirulina.

    Prior to transfer i only ate warm foods and made sure to kept my feet warm (wore shoes/slippers except when sleeping i wore socks) to improve circulation and to keep my uterus warm and welcoming for the embyro. I also had done acupuncture with a genuine chinese practitioner (some acupuncturists are not as skilled, experienced or qualified) for 3mths prior and saw her the same day a few hrs after transfer - as my chinese acupuncturist believed it wasn't important prior and was fully booked i decided to ease my mind and relax prior and used another very good practitioner the night before transfer.
    3 days prior to transfer I begun eating pineapple core and continued for a week after transfer.

    After transfer i had 3 days of minimal stress and a lot of resting but also got out a bit too. I ate as mentioned pineapple core, drunk 100% organic grape juice x 2 daily. Ate brazil nuts and kept up eating warm foods and rm temp or hot drinks. I actually brought a zen defuser from perfect potion and found this really relaxing especially when i had to return to work i would come hm put my feet up and listen to it, it had relaxing music too, and would try to listen and think positive thoughts and visualise the embyro doing its thing and growing inside for 30 mins in the morning - kinda meditating i guess.

    My embyro was nothing special but i do think we achieved a great fertilisation and development rate with 50% of our embryos being useful. I credit this to the supplements esp - royal jelly and coenq10.

    Anyway good luck ladies!

    Be interested in advice.

    I just rang an accupuncturist who recommended I wait a few months - get fit and healthier (change diet, loose weight, also I have only stopped smoking a few months ago), and them do next embryo transpant.

    I worry time is running out.

    Be keen to know anyones thoughts.

    Hmm it does sound wise - you have to prime your body and I think eggs can develop in 6 mthy cycles so even thou you stopped smoking 2 mths ago you still may have some not so good eggs in your body.
    Perhaps ring and get another opinion but unless ur amh is terribly low or your over 40, given that ivf is soo expensive you should get your body in the best shape first to improve ur chances.
