Hi ladies, hoping to join your thread. Have been reading this thread over the last couple of weeks and just amazed at the wonderful support that you all give each other. Think it’s wonderful. I have been TTC for the last 7 years – 2 natural pregnancies which both resulted in m/c. Was previously with Melbourne IVF and after 6 failed cycles (they were not trying anything new) was recommended to see Lynn. She is amazing and always happy to try new things. I will be commencing my 3rd cycle with Lynn when AF arrives in next couple of days. My AMH level is 12. My egg numbers are usually anywhere between 8-12 so egg quality is the issue. Fertilisation rates are low last cycle only one 8 grade made it for transfer. Lynn has me taking melatonin, elevit, coq 10 and Vit E to improve quality. This new cycle I will be on synarel, gonal f, menopur, growth hormone and she will be doing a endometrial scratch. Am also seeing Richard (he is great) at Almond centre for acupuncture and taking Chinese herbs on this threads recommendation. Hoping to be able to share all your journeys. Good luck everyone. Soph
welcome sophdask, im a freshman here too. Good to read your story and good luck with the 3rd cycle
Has anyone here been to see Steven Clavey from Apricot Grove Chinese Med in the city? If so did you gain any results from him? How would he compare to Richard? I've been told Steven is the fertility man to go to since he has been practising gynecalogical chinese med for something like 25 years. Plus he has written some of the text books others are studying.
Welcome Soph! Best wishes for your next cycle. You have come to the right place for support all the ladies on this forum are great! Sounds like u get great egg numbers so I'm sure Lynn will help improve quality. I was on melatonin for my successful cycle it knocked me around a bit but was worth it.
Welcome to the group Sophdask.. Here you will find enormous support.. I am also one of ex mivf unhappy patients.. We were having quality issues as well and we went for pgd. After 2 cycles with Lynn we have made 2 genetically normal blastocyss and are awaiting a frozen transfer. Good luck
