    Default IVF over 40 #7

    That's what I thought too, but the look on the gp's face was priceless. But I read the pop up and from what I gather was coming from the PBS.

    I'm fairly sure there's something in the fine print on the Crinone pamphlet that I read - but I can't remember. Since my FS prescribed it I still used it.

    Hello ladies!

    Straggling back in after brief hiatus. Due for fresh stim cycle August on lower dose of gonal f (down to 150) this time. If i still hyperstimulate on this dose it will be a freeze all. Had to cancel my last FET due to embie not surviving thaw...
    after reading the posts, I simply HAD to log back in to say ... GO Bertie ! Watching your cycle with great interest ! So happy to hear that things are going well.....

    Congrats to all the BFPs and hi to everyone else

    Re progesterone...
    warnings refer to synthetic birth control progesterone derivatives such as progestin, not to crinone and other progesterone supplements

    good luck girls

    I thought life was frustrating keeping DP in check with her cycle. Its even more frustrating with the both of us waiting to get into sync.

    So my AF came Thursday I thought yay i can start gonal, nope have to wait for DP's AF to arrive, she was on the pill to delay and oops she took it a day extra. But I think i have jinx her as after each phone call today "any sign yet question" I saw her earlier and she said, i think its coming lol

    So now to ring clinic tomorrow morning (they have an after hours mobile you can reach them on Saturdays til 12pm) and then we have to wait for FS to decide on my Gonal amount and then DP will start taking the Progenova.

    Phew.... to everyone

    There is so much happening. So excited by all the positive news, pregnancies and activity here. We are going to start again next month using testosterone but not sure on whether to use menopur or gonal f. Does anyone here have an opinion or experience on which is better to use.

    I used Gonal F in my first three cycles and Menopur in the next two. Have a look at my signature to see how they went. This fifth cycle has been the best so far - Menopur dosage was a little higher for this fifth cycle, and the only other thing different was rubbing Testogel into my hand for 5-6 weeks before the cycle started, so not really sure if our 4 fertilised embies are to do with the Menopur (getting more numbers) or the Testogel (getting better egg quality).

    Hi girls, hope all of you have had a great Friday!

    Fingers very exciting to hear you and DP are at the starting line!!

    Des, Musical, Chook, Angelmama hope you and your little beans are doing well.

    Net, I am sorry to hear of the difficulties you've had in finding someone local to work with you. you find someone soon.

    Butterfly, for a better cycle this time

    Bertie, hope those embies are growing and are well on the way to being strong blasties.

    Kenta, I've been wondering the same thing too. I was feeling a bit low a few weeks back and came across a some books that went some way to improving my understanding. One also had a feel good story.
    The first was "Must Ask Questions for IVF Newbies" by Elizabeth Brydone. Though I (and most of us here) aren't newbies, she provides a straightforward way to think about the process and some of the medications. She herself is an IVF veteran: she was told she had DOR/low AMH/ high FSH at 38 but still went on to have 3 children with her own eggs, the last born just before she turned 43. She isn't a doctor, but does have an academic/ scientific background. She also suggests some questions that you might ask if you've had one or more failed cycles (pretty much all of us here I think)

    The second is "IVF: the ART of making babies" by Dr. Geoffrey Sher - the new edition was published a couple of months ago. He's an American FS who actually discusses the different protocols and explains which type of patient he'd use them on and why. He also has a website - here's the link to the page on which he discusses different stimulation protocols. I found it really useful, it will definitely give me something to discuss with my own FS.

    ETA: here's a link to his web site where he discusses stimulation protocols http://haveababy.com/fertility-infor...ch-to-ovarian/

    Spring Rain... yes, I've read that website by Dr. Geoffrey Sher before. It was one that had heaps of great stuff on it. Thanks for letting me re-discover it again.

    AFM.... Our 4 little embies are still alive and kicking at day 3. Two are perfectly on track at 8 cells, one is OK at 6 cells, and one is being slow at 5 cells. All 4 were graded A, meaning that there's little fragmentation, so that's good news. We've had a couple get to day 3 before, but it's getting past to day 5 that is the problem, but the scientist said that seems to be many embryos problems. Anyhow, it's looking really good, so transfer is set for Monday morning. I think it will be a long 2 day wait til then :-))
