How did your blood test go Luca? Thinking of you. Xx
Patsy, our donor was 29 and I didn't think for an AMH test as I was more concerned at that point that she did not carry any CF strains as hubby is a carrier. I'm now pregnant with twins and we have a frosty. I know all those questions but have faith in your decision and agree with wish and RB, enjoy googling the fun stuff now.
laned, that is poop that you never heard back from the agency. I would be nervous about the cannibus but would look at it with other things... Does she smoke, drink, not exercise regularly etc... If yes to a couple of these then I would be worried on her lifestyle and the affect of this on her eggs. If it is a once off and generally leads a healthy lifestyle then I wouldn't be so concerned. Bless you hon, it doesn't matter how often we do this it never gets any easier, follow your gut it is rarely wrong.
Luca, cannot wait for your update!
Thanks Sunflower and Patsy. Xxx
The donor has otherwise lived a very very healthy lifestyle. However, the use was very recent. The agency has been really good with reassurance and got Dr H on to it. I am truly overwhelmed by his rapid response. He noted that one off use should not impact on egg quality and noted CFC will screen for use and if they deem it to be a regular use the donor cannot donate. Very reassuring. CFC are truly one very professional organisation. I am so impressed with them and really grateful to Dr H.
As for our decision, we are now looking at further donor profiles and will make a decision after speaking with my local FS.
Patsy, I couldn't agree more with the previous ladies. I think anyone under 30 would be fine, but likewise I think an AMH is a very sensible plan.
To the lady who asked about whether we sought legal advice. In short no, the contracts were quite clear, so I did not feel the need.
As for sharps, I carried them with us. A small sharps container on the plane the others in stowed luggage.
Luca can looking forward to those beautiful BHCG numbers. Xx
My beta result from yesterday is 220. So officially preggers. I go for another BT on Saturday then more waiting (but at least another hurdle jumped). Woo hoo!
Yay!!! Great news Luca. Congratulations. What a great bHCG 👍
Luca: Great numbers! Congratulations, that's great news.
Hi to all. So, I went to my GP this morning and I have my prescription for the pill and the Progynova but she can't give me a script for the Synarel (which I'd pretty much decided on) because she's not allowed to. I have to go to a FS which I don't have. So my options are to get a script from CFC for the international pharmacy (which will need an import permit) or go the Lucrin daily route which my GP can prescribe?
So, any thoughts on the Lucrin daily? And did anyone get an import permit for Synarel and was it difficult?
I took daily Lucrin with my last cycle and next time i plan to use synarel. In part to reduce the qty of needles I have to do each day. For me I would rather do synarel. (It tastes gross but can be done much more discreetly when travelling)
