    Butterfly - 'Helpful' friend is incorrect. Micca achieved a BFP at 42 using her own eggs and now has a daughter....I also think MrsPontipine is a 'graduate' too (apologies if I have this wrong).

    Butterfly thank goodness your friend is wrong, or I wouldn't currently be pregnant at 41yo (my own eggs, although via IVF). There's an over-40s thread in the First Semester board here and I'm surprised at the large number of women that are in there.

    Butterfly, - I was 43 when I got pregnant with DS with my own eggs on my first IVF FET. My sister had 2 spontaneous pregnancies resulting in 3 children at age 40 and 41. My grandmother had 2 of her children at age 40 and 42 in the 1940's, and I'm pretty sure they were her own eggs. I could go on, and on, and on! Don't you worry about your silly friend. Lots of to you for the end of this 2WW! When are you testing?

    Thanks ladies, I called my clinic and asked WTF! and they spoke to my fs and he has changed it back to lucrin but still at a lower gonal f dose 375 compared to 450. I need to call them again so I am going to query that too but I have a spare gonal f pen and if necessary I will use that if they don't up it.

    It makes me feel hopeful that others use their own eggs and still get bfp in their 40's. My greatest fear is everything 'drying up'

    I really appreciate this thread and all the advice you give. I feel more at home here that with the younger gals.

    My Aunt had one at 41. My friend had one at 46. Don't listen to the nay Sayers.

    Thanks ladies!

    Check this out - my Aunty got pregnant at 50 but I never asked her how because it was 20 years ago now. She was a Gynaecologist though.

    yes, silly friends don't really think when they just take a big pin and pop your dream do they? Thanks for answering !

    mrs p - I'm testing Wednesday officially - if it works great, if not i get back in the baby line

    Thanks for the welcome ladies!


    Kenta....So sorry. Praying that BT will show otherwise.


    Sagi....hoping that the next one will be the one. I believe acu also helps to remove stress and relaxes you. I will also start to look near our area.


    Kaz....how are your embabies?


    Sunny... OMG! Not too long now and you will be in SA. Best of luck.


    DJ... You are going to SA next to Sunny. I think we will be cycling buddies in July.


    Hello to the rest. Hope all is well.


    I have been following journeys of a few ladies that undergone IVF in Taiwan and stats are very promising. Also the cost is very reasonable for my DH and I are on working visa here in Australia and do not have Medicare. Without Medicare, it will be very expensive for us. We were already planning to do it with Westmead but it just so happen that DH will be assigned in Taiwan for a few weeks so we schedule our IVF to coincide with his biz trip. I already asked for prescription from my FS and also send email enquiry to a compounding chemist. Hopefully these all works out.


    All the best ladies!!!
