Hi helenmac, my FS has been a bit difficult with trying anything new and doesn't believe the fact I have arthritis, iBS, asthma etc etc as issues that can affect my ivf cycles, so I have only had gonal f and lucrin followed by crinone, this last time I insisted on hgh and pregnyl which she allowed! She puts my failures down to being old (I turned 40 last week) and my low amh/egg quality!
The only surprising thing was when we had our follow up after this last cycle she spent 10 mins trying to convince me that autoimmune and nk cells had no bearing on your ability to conceive, but when pushed said she would work with whatever protocol dr m wanted me to go on! Bizarre but at least I don't have to find a new FS, I couldn't go through a cycle without everyone being aware what I was taking, I'd be too scared!
It's thanks to women like you, festivalgirl and kiwi who started this thread that I even made the first appointment to see dr m. I thought the fact that I do get sick would mean I can't have issues that are affecting my cycles, but this thread and the dr beer book certainly opened my eyes! So thank you very much for being so open, and congrats again on your bfp, what a wonderful time it must be for you and your family xxx
