    Given my my fert rate was so poor (worst ever) she's wondering if it was a 'crap cycle'. We will see. Wonder what WDA will decide to do next.

    dh still critical. He woke up TWICE last night apparently. Lol
    That sounds like a great fert rate to me, but then I had zero fert, so maybe I have low standards lol
    Sounds like things are still touch & go for your poor DH... I sometimes think it's like having another child hehehe.

    @Butterfly39 You have every right to feel disappointed if that's what you have achieved before. It's a hard balance between being optimistic, yet realistic and wanting to get the best results you can and trying to manage expectations. (hoping for the best and preparing for the worst is far easier to say than to actually do in my experience)

    Sometimes it's hard when we go through this process and we try to convey disappointment when you know others have had it far,far worse. It doesn't make your troubles any less valid or upsetting.

    Precious, I kept taking CoQ10 right through, during stims pick up and afterwards. I'm still taking it now until my FS says definitely no more stim cycles. Not sure about DHEA though, I've never taken it.

    Butterfly, how does the testing and biopsy process work at your clinic?

    I have a question for those who have investigated or gone through with donor eggs. I am still committed to doing a couple more cycles with my own eggs but am thinking about next options (as a way of keeping my spirits up if things don't go well). I have looked up a couple of options (USA and world egg bank) and comparing price, success rates, travel, tests required, accesibility of drugs and other things like anonymous donors is making my head spin. So I'm wondering how other people came to make their decision on where to go for donor eggs?

    Hi, we went to Cape Town, South Africa, my FS advised they weren't getting great results with TWEB here in Aus plus it cost close to 23k the USA was pretty expensive and again frozen eggs for a cheaper cycle.
    SA is reasonable once your there price wise 9k for all the medical stuff inc donor agency fees, Cape Fertility offer a frozen egg bank as a back up should your donor have a dud cycle, you can keep the excess embryos for FET cycles in the future, you choose your own donor by viewing comprehensive profiles ( baby photos only though) no language barrier, amazing food and accommodation, safe etc.
    Our cycle/trip inc spending money and amazing holiday for 12 days (staying 4 star) cost us about 15k. I'm 19 weeks now and have two frosties in Cape Town. You could do it in the off season april- aug for about 12k I would imagine.
    I hope that helps

    Emski... 19 weeks - that's absolutely gone so quickly... or at least it seems to have gone so quickly when I think of all the cycles we did together and here you are pretty much at the half way mark. That's so fantastic, and I am so excited for you!!! You must be absolutely over the moon. Best wishes for the last half xx
