We also went through dr Woolcot and he was fantastic. We fell preg 8 mths after procedure. I would highly recommend him.
i too am trying for just one more, and Im concerned that i might be the one who is just too old. I was 45 in March, and (my hubby has had his checked and its still excellent with great numbers and great mobility), but with my advancing age,,, what might be on my side is that I have good genes, my mum her self had me and my twin sister 45 years ago, and after 8 other children (yes strict catholics, she finally went on the pill at age 40. I had my baby girl last August, no problems with conception, she is now 9 1/2 months old , 7 months after reversal, I fell pregnant. Now 18 months later, my periods are perfect, like clockwork, I ovulate on day 13 or 14 (opks, temp rises, mucus changes, cramping) all perfect but i have been trying now for three months- not long I know, but nothing so far, and i know its only early days so no negative comments but time is not on my hands, so maybe this month, I ovulated last night, wish me luck,, mind you I have already had 5 children including twins 12 years ago, actually i really want twins again! I know Im being selfish but i cannot help myself, Im just like my mum, god bless her, shes passed now!
My twin sister had her first baby at 39 and 9 months and then after 2 more and 42 she had number 3, another good genes sign, she actually went to a fertility specialist before number 3 who said, you can be 35 and have eggs of a 45 yr old, or you can be 45 and have the eggs of a 35 yr old, and that was her case, I hope its mine too, and i haven't ever drank excessively, hell i cannot remember the last time i was drunk, nor have i ever smoked or had drugs, my life is reasonably stress less and i get plenty of rest,, sooo but as i mentioned its been 3 months now, so i rang our local fertility specialist and made an appointment to see him on the 28th August if I am not pregnant by then.
The receptionist told me about the egg timer blood test which takes 4 weeks and comes back with a score stating how high your ovarian levels are,,, so i had that test last wednesday and am awaiting the results,
3 weeks to go, my doctor also told me on day 21 i can have a progesterone test which tells me If i actually did ovulate, so thats booked for next wednesday.
okay back to the specialist , I can discuss all this with him when my results come back but he may diagnose clomid to make me ovulate more eggs at as time, (he wants to see my hubby as well as clomid causes a high chance of twins, but hey I want that and so does he)
I dont know what he'll suggest, maybe i'm too old and cant ovulate healthy eggs myself even though i think i am as everything perfect, get pregnant on my own, just don't know, or as everything seems to be working maybe I just need to chill and it will happen, or I guess IVf could be on offer, i m not sure, what else can they offer with assisted reproduction for us if thats what it comes down too and I don't think donor eggs is something hubby wants if you know what i mean. oh and i'm on chinese medicines too as I believe they helped last time, and when my acupuncturist gets back from overseas Ill do that again , as i have to months of acupunture last time and fell pregnant twice in 2 months after within 2-3 months from the first acupunture session, i'm wishing her to get back quick,
any suggestions and sorry if i offended people, thats not my intention!
Hi ladies I've been on bh for ages and never knew this support page existed!

Thought I would introduce myself.. I'm 27 (turning 28 on Sat... so technically I am 27!) My husband is 35, has 3 kids. His V was done around 6 years back and the VR this year by Dr Woolcott at Strathfield Private - Dr Woolcott has an excellent manner and we are eagerly awaiting good results to share!
While we are not really TTC... I'm a bit obsessed this month.. first month I've kept track of AF and what day I prob ovulated.. but nothing more than that.. we dtd 4 times over that time and I have 'felt' all these symptoms that are probably in my head!
Would love to hear experiences and anything you ladies are willing to share x
Hello, glad people are back in the thread. DH had his reversal approx 4 months ago and had his test done about a week ago. Turns out op worked and his swimmers are in full swing he is sitting at 300 million and 80% mobility. Which the doc said was awesome being so close to the op so just waiting for the day that we get our BFP!!
Hi babykins, his op was done in darwin by doctor Campbell.
Happy to hear yours worked as well hopefully it happens for us both very soon x
