    Default IVF support

    Hi everyone,
    I am new to the forum as we have recently been told we will need IVF due to low amh and endometrosis!
    We have been referred to monash ivf and seeing Dr Ken Leong, just wanting to know if anyone knows much about Ken?

    Also so how you coped with ivf? Feeling very overwhelmed at the moment


    thanks :-) x

    Hi mrsharps, me and my husband started ivf this year. We're 30, had to do ivf as have a block tube and I too have endometriosis. We went through fertility solutions on Sunshine Coast, qld. They told us it would most likely take 3 goes to get pregnant. Our first ivf cycle in feb was cancelled before egg pickup due to medicine dose too high - my hormone levels went through the roof and I got a bit sick. Went on the pill for a month then tried again. This time they lowered the dosage and I only got about 6 follicles form. Made it to egg pickup but they were only able to get 2 mature eggs and none from the side I have endo on. Only one of those eggs fertilised, My hormone levels were good to do a fresh embryo transfer, we chose to transfer on day 3 instead of day 5... I'm 13 weeks today it is a bit of an emotional roller coaster, keeping busy helps - gives you less time to worry lol. Best of luck!

    Default trying to start our family

    Hi im new to this i have had 2 m/c and 3 faild ivf cycles and now iv been told i have no eggs left so we didnt think twise we started looking for a egg donor we found alot of women willing to help us but as soon as we booked the appointment for all of us at our clinic we didnt hear frm them again. so we started looking again then we found a nice lady who looked so much like me it was like looking in a mirror so we booked her in and then she said she wanted $10,000 + the rebate of $5,000 to do this for us.... So after spending over $22,000 on 3failed ivf treatment already we couldnt afford it but it is sad how some women play on ur emotions when they knw its ilegal to pay for donors in australia we prob would of paid if we had the money.
    So we gave up for a few months untill our clinic rang and the nurse asked if we found a fonor well i just broke down chris the nurse was so nice she kept saying dnt give up so i decided to put anither add on egg donor angels and for weeks i was checking my email and then i gave up until my husband rang me and said to check my email! I looked and a lady answered my add so i didnt reply right away cos in the past alot of them didnt reply to me so after 1week i replyed well to my shock she replyed right away we organized to meet for coffee and im glad to say we got 9eggs only 6 fertalized and today is our fet yay i cant sleep im so excitef i dnt knw wat to expect but im so glad i have this chance to have a family.

    I didn't eat any pineapple core I think that one is a bit of a myth. http://www.livestrong.com/article/55...uterus/#page=1

    I wanted to just continue eating really healthily, increase protein and drink my 3L a day religiously and be really calm.

    That hasn't worked, I've had food poisoning and heaps of stress so fingers crossed the little embie is a fighter.
