    Hi Fort,

    So sorry to see you still here, I really hoped one of your frosties was going to be 'the one'. Hopefully it still will be! I have recently seen a new FS who has diagnosed me with a condition called adenomyosis. It is basically endometriosis in the uterine wall and stops implantation. It is quite difficult to diagnose and difficult to treat and has only fairly recently been linked to infertility. Most women have it to some degree as they get into their 40s and is more common in women who have a child. My case is moderate to severe. I have to have 5 injections of zoladex over 5 months before I can try again. Apparently it's oftern the reason good quality embryos don't implant. Anyway, it made me think of you and thought maybe you should ask your FS about it. It was diagnosed through a pelvic ultrasound but I saw a specialist who knows alot about this condition. Hopefully my new FS is on the money and this treatment makes a difference.

    Good luck to everyone trying this year. May all your dreams come true........

Perhaps the mature ones will be better quality? I certainly hope so for you.

    Kenta, sounds like you're starting to get pretty frustrated with the whole IVF thing- and no wonder. I have decided if my last 3 frozen embryos fail I am accepting the help of a donor. I figure that if 9 embryos all fail that's a sign to move on for me. If you decide you'd consider a donor let me know, I know a great community for egg donation where your dream doesn't have to end with failed IVF. (((HUGS)))

    wow Im finally able to read BH..for some reason google blocked it and said it was an adverse site...think it was probably a small virus or something in my compute..but all good now....

    goldie... so sorry to hear about your USS... that is just soul shattering..to have all that hope... Im glad that you have a good attitude.. will you have a repeat uss in a week just to besure?? hugs hugs hugs

    anxious.... you sound like me... I was like that on the cycle I had a chemical pregnancy... I did everything, drank coffee ate junk food...lol... and it still worked... except for crappy 44yr old eggs of course..lol.. not long now...

    Kenta... I so understand.. I was the other way last cycle with my eggs cooked too long... and they were a bit of a disaster. Its heartbreaking and very very frustrating... but I have learnt now.. we know our cycles and our bodies better than the FS do..they only see us every now and again... and if you think you are unhappy speak up... often they listen... lets hope that we both have better luck next cycle.

    Fortitude.. how is your journey going... I think that you need to look at immune implantation issues first before you go headlong into donor eggs... because if you have an immune issue then even donor eggs wont work... maybe time for a hysteroscopy and endometrial biopsy looking for natural killer cells if you have not already done it..... worth a thought...may IVFer with failed cycles has ended up having this and once treated got pregnant... you certainly produce lovely blasts.

    Sunny... I hope that the clinic is finally beginning to pull finger for you and get that paperwork done.

    Mrs Erin.. I too am on a kitchen sink protocol...

    october... great news that you have found something significant that cause implantation failure.. I hope that the treatment works for you... grrr on having to wait while it works though...

    Kenta... hang in there...we all hit the wall at some point,, having a holiday and too much food and alchohol is often a nice break and reminder of reality out there...

    Beetle lets hope that this cycle finds the right recipe for you.

    DJshears.. onwards and upwards... lts hope that your last frostie is the one.

    well I paid for my saizen the other day...ouch...I find myself looking at it thinking...thats my new laptop there or my new fridge.... sigh... but its all for a good cause right !!... started lupron yesterday so I am well on the way now... just have to organise my drugs to be sent ...
    Life has been busy with bushfires and living in an area that seems to be in the extreme fire risk zone...so always a little worry there... especially when thunderstorms come through...hoping that in a few more weeks everything settles down... there is only so much you can do... and make sure I remember DD and the ivf drugs if we need to evacuate..lol..lol..

    Default Adenomyosis

    Hi Octoberbaby2010

    I hope you don't mind me butting in here but happened to drop in & read your post & feel compelled to tell you my story. I did IVF a while ago - a total of 7 tfrs using 13 eggs - we had to make the difficult decision to give up due to being emotionally & financially done. After a few years I could feel my endometriosis getting worse so a visit back to the specialist and after lap #5 was advised the endo was strangling all my organs & I would need a full hysterectomy (otherwise I would end up with a colostomy bag). However they couldn't get to my organs so a 6 month course on Zoladex was required to shrink the endo (Zoladex is no fun!!! Prepare yourself for the entry of the psycho dragon!!!). During this time I turned 40 & got my dream job. After the Zoladex course I requested just a couple of months grace to get my head together - during this time we discovered I had naturally fallen pregnant, quite the shock!! I am now 29weeks.

    I just wanted to give you a bit of hope - I have never been diagnosed with anything other than severe endo but having read your post can now assume that I also had Adenomyosis & feel that Zoladex must have done it's job & shrunk the issues. I soooo hope that this is also the case for you.

    I wish you all the best & also everyone else on this thread, I sincerely hope all your dreams come true & that a beautiful baby is coming your way shortly.

    Default IVF over 40 #5

    Hi ladies,

    Goldie.....so sorry that you have had this outcome. I can't even imagine how heartbreaking that must have been. Hugs.

    Sunny 15.....the Pregnyl Pre embryo transfer will only happen if I have day 5 ET. It's to help the embryo stick. On day of transfer I will have to go to my FS rooms to have this HCG via a catheter. Then ET happens 2 hours later. So could have a bit of running around on ET day - if I get that far, last cycle was cancelled before EPU.

    MrsErinR......I have seen on other threads that your FS is NL. He is mine as well. Probably explains why our protocol so similar. I will also be on the Colorado protocol if I get to ET.

    Hope everyone is well.

    Cheers Beetle

    That is a fantastic story! Thanks so much for sharing. It certainly sounds like you may have/had adenomyosis. We certainly have other factors in play (low amh, mfi) but I'm hoping the zoladex will do its job. I've had 1 successful pregnancy and 1 miscarriage, so we know it's possible. Just have to keepp our fingers crossed! Good luck with your pregnancy!

    Micca.... yes, Google had blocked Bubhub for me too, but DH was able to get it up using Internet Explorer, but now it works fine again. Interestingly, I asked my FS directly about using growth hormone, but he is totally against it, saying that there isn't any research proving that it makes any difference. I thought that was interesting as I've read many posts here on Bubhub where ladies have mentioned that they are taking it.

    AFM.... We have a plan now and should start sniffing Syranel today or tomorrow, as soon as the results of yesterdays BTs are in. We're going with the plan to see if Dr G can find some sperm in DH's micro-dissection, so are not waiting for donor sperm, as it still won't be available for another month (and I just can't wait any longer). There is a possibility that Dr G doesn't find any useable sperm, so the cycle would then be cancelled (ie. no EPU), but DH and I feel that we will be no worse off in that situation as we were in our first two cycles that didn't result in a pregnancy (apart from financially, but it's only money!!). Glad to to doing something.
