    @Jem70 - yes I kept sending my donors back and asking for different ones, they were mostly inappropriate (I had a Sri Lankan guy in one of my batches). I saw one that had bipolar in his family history as well and that's where I started getting a little p*ssed at MIVF for not proving better choices. I mean the donor fees there are pretty hefty! I like the way Monash does it where you pay as you go so to speak, rather than 4 cycles upfront.

    Gosh imagine we had ended up preg to the same donor - now there's a special bond!!

    @Kelly70 it surprises me that they don't just show you the full menu up front to choose from?

    Scuba - me too, I found it all very odd the way it was handled.. They'd send me a batch of 4 donors, then I'd let them know they weren't suitable, then I'd have to wait a few days or week/s for more to come up. I don't know if the donors get rotated or what, it's weird.

    I'm reading up on human growth hormone this arvo (or saizen I think it's also called). Think they were doing a trial in Australia this year on women aged 40-44 to see if it improved pregnancy rates. Supposed to improve egg quality in poor responders and has shown some promise I think. I vaguely recall reading something about Lynn using it - anyone know anything or had any experience? I think ppl on the other over 40s thread have used it.

    @ScubaGal I think they time them so only one person is using a donor at a time. But I agree, particularly as it costs so much - you get charged again for the sperm straw after you already paid $2000 to join the donor list.
    @Kelly70 I wonder how many crossovers there are! We were looking at the list at a similar time!

    Hi Kelly - I used human growth hormone on my 6th cycle - it was my worst cycle ... But then I'm a spectacularly bad responder ...

    @Kelly70 yeah a bit more relaxed than I've been, symptoms have kicked in now so I've got super sore boobs and queasy in the mornings.

    The human growth hormone stuff sounds interesting - Wednesday is your appt right?
    @Jem70 I hadn't thought of that - I wonder what the ethical issue is with having lots of women use the same donor at once...

    Yep apt Wednesday. Trying to be relaxed about it but am slightly anxious she'll say she cannot help unless it's egg donor.

    Kel, Lynn wouldn't have agreed to see you after looking at your history if she didn't think she could help so try not to stress. Even with my ****ty results she called me the other day and said she thinks we should try IUI as a last resort as she's not ready to give up on me yet. So am sure she'll have something up her sleeve for you! She did say to me on the phone the other day she would generally convert to IUI with anything less than 3 follies as the chances are so low of it working. But I got the impression thats more to do with the financial cost of going to egg retrieval only to find nothing or only finding one egg and it not fertilising. So I'm sure if you really want to go for it regardless she would. I would go in with a list of questions written down so you don't forget to ask something as she does talk super fast! She is really nice but she's very upfront and to the point. I really like that about her but I know some people find it off putting. Good luck!

    @Kellyk77 that's interesting she thinks you can give it another go with IUI. Do you think you'll do it?
