If you have to have refrigerated drugs you can take an insulated lunch bag with an ice block in there?
I've been with Lynn since June 2012, started investigating then & started IVF in Jan this year, had a cancelled cycle & went again in Feb, BFN then missed ovulation the following month (thanks to nurse) BFP following month 😃
Hi wonderful ladies .. Have been following this thread from a over 2 months now.. Must say that that have got immense support and hope after reading some of the success stories
My story.... me and dh both 36. Dh fine .. Me borderline pcos .. We were mainly in the unexplained category. 1st IVF 2009 gonalf 112.5 22eggs...5 embryos..BFP on first attemptbut miscarriage in week 16 (trisomy 21). Was with MIVF. Other 4 frozen on day 2. Don't understand why they transfer and freeze on day 2. Then another BFP from those 4 frozen in 2011 but again miscarriage in week 10 due to aneuploidy . 2 other stimulated cycles in 2013 with pgd as suggested by my FS. Made only 3 embryos out of 14 eggs in both cycles collective. Unfortunately all 3 turned out chromosomaly abnormal. my doctor has absolutely given me no answers and is not willing to try anything new and is saying could be egg quality.. ( my egg reserve is fine). My dosage, I believed was very low in the last 2 cycles. Puregon125 and 175 which got 6 and 8 eggs.
On the reccomendation of my friend I have decided to change clinics and am seeing dr Lynn Burmeister on the end of Nov. What do you think, can she come up with some new ideas/approach for me.. Thanks
Hi everyone, I have been reading a lot of forums of late but this my first time posting!
My story: I'm single, 36 and recently discovered I have a very low AMH (1.4) and have since started down the path of freezing eggs.
However, I'm shattered as my first cycle was cancelled today as only 2 follicles developed (cd13). My FSH is quite high - 15.6 - so cycle nearly didn't go ahead but FS decided to give it a go. My mum went through menopause at 42 and it appears I'm following in her footsteps.
Im with dr Toledo at MIVF however I also have a referral to see Lynn Burmeister and am considering going to see her for another opinion as I've heard she's amazing.
I did a flare cycle with synarel and 300 iu of puregon which was upped to 400 iu on day 8.
Id love to year any other success stories of others with low amh/high fsh as I'm feeling pretty down right now wondering if I have much chance of success am now considering a sperm donor and just going all the way on the next cycle as im scared I won't get many quality eggs to freeze and have heard embryos freeze better than eggs. So much to think about!

I just wanted to say I too was with MIVF to begin with & after miscarriage & more BPN, I kept asking to try different things but my Dr wasn't prepared to. He blamed it all on DH & said there was nothing wrong with me! I did my research & found Lynn Burmiester... Straight up she didn't believe it was purely DH as the reason we couldn't get pregnant. She sent me for a lap & found mild endo & pcos, I then had a cancelled cycle with Lynn (she cancelled due to knowing my body could do better) she was right, the next cycle was much better, with each cycle or transfer we tried something new... And my second transfer with Lynn has resulted in my current pregnancy (31w)
I hope you have the same results 😊
Kelly I would highly recommend Lynn, especially given your circumstances, Have you read some of the articles on her website? She has done some amazing things ie: removed ovarian tissue before chemo then placed it back in and the woman started ovulating again and fell pregnant, she reshaped a womans uterus so that it could hold the baby and she fell pregnant. I am not sure if it is Lynn or not but somewhere they have reversed menopause after placing ovarian tissue back in. So there is a lot that can be done and hopefully Lynn will be the answer you're looking for.
If you don't mind be asking where you hoping to freeze eggs and wait for a man in your life then TTC? How do you feel about using donor sperm? If you did use donor would you do a full IVF cycle and go ahead with an embryo transfer? Sorry for all the questions!
Sue I would say the same for you, Lynn will come up with a whole new approach and cycle for you. I have heard some terrible things about MIVF. A friend of a friend did iVF through MIVF 17 TIMES and BFN then 1st cycle with monash BFP! Sometimes a change and fresh eyes on your history is all it takes. Good luck & keep us posted.

Hi MARTTC and Jb 2011 thanks for the reassurance and the detailed reply. It really means a lot. It's a very difficult time as so much has been happening in life and you guyz are such a nice support group where we can discuss so much. I will definitely keep you posted as to how my appointment goes with Lynn. I am seeing her on the 28th this month. MIVF has really mucked us up big time .. Anyways hopefully we get results with Lynn. Seeing positive stories here gives so much hope) ...and many congratulations for your pregnancy MARTTC...
