I have been a lurker all year and am finally registering as I feel I may give hope to someone out there (and thats what we live off - hope).
I had DD by ICSI in 2010 at 39yr. I didn't realise at the time the severity tof he age issue as it seemed to me to be all DP issues why we were at IVF. Thinking I would just wean DD and then go again for a sibling was a rude shock to me when my FS said there was little chance of success. I sought a 2nd FS opinion at the same clinic asking about DHEA, HGH etc to be told 'I'm not his patient and if I was he wouldn't treat me' This appoint I had just had my 40th bday. My AMH was <1 with high FSH. This FS also said 'IVF is there to get you 1 baby and we've done that'. There has been insurmountable sorrow. DP and I split up. However he agreed with me to use his sperm to try for a sibling. I pursued acupuncture and many of the vitamins etc mentioned on this thread. I sought a different IVF clinic and FS who happily treated me, he thought there was 'still hope'. I had 3 full cycles, 1st a chemical, 2nd negative with 2 embryos implanted and positive on the 3rd cycle with 2 implanted. So I am now 29 wks pregnant with a singleton, and am 41.5yrs. The most eggs I ever got was 3 with no frosties. It is hard work being a single mum and another on the way but I am so so grateful to this FS for trying. Ive tried to be brief for an overview, but can look up details if anyone wants them, this FS put me straight on DHEA and I also used Saizen with 350-400 FSH and pregnyl shots. PS I was incorrectly given progesterone pessaries during the last cycle, and have kept them in case anyone wants them. 6 boxes of 15, 200mg prog, in my fridge. I hope I can give HOPE to some of you to persevere and keep trying even with few eggs.
