ok here goes... WHY oh WHY do we have to wait so long to be offered the scratch or steroids, biopsies, etc with IVF clinics? I just read up about the scratch and, although no guarantee of course, and some don't believe in it (Dr Sher) - some clinics o/s don't even do an IVF cycle without the scratch!!!
I know a few of you have had it (MCG Bertie & Legwarmer) ... it apparently improves IVF pregnancy rates by around 20% I've read... and what makes me so mad is that my FS only brought it up yesterday after me prompting and asking what we could do more, after him going on about my failures just being the statistics (great, proof that I'm a statistic, thanks so much for that), and then he suggested the scratch almost as an afterthought, like he suddenly just thought of it before he hung up on me - what am I, a write-off because I'm 43? Does he not realise this is not a freaking card game but life and death for me and my family???!!! I'm so angry with this whole IVF system now, I just think they take the **** out of us and drag us along cut glass for years when they hold so many answers that they never even tell us about when we are so vulnerable until we are completely beaten down and broken and lost too many embryos and babies.
I just feel so at the mercy of them and don't they just know it. I'm so deeply envious of people who never have to set foot in a clinic and just get pregnant having sex - aren't we all FS said they've been using scratch on a lot of girls recently with success - so WHY didn't he suggest it for my last 2 cycles? I'm so over it, we're just a bloody number, our pain earns them their huge salaries. I could suddenly never call them again and they wouldn't even notice or care I reckon. Rant over. Thank God they exist to help us but really, could they try and care as hard as we ourselves do please????
