Have you had immune testing PSS?
Have you had immune testing PSS?
Sunny, I'm 46 now and at 44 my own eggs were just not working and I had hardly any left anyway. So I found it quite exciting to look into donor eggs. Especially after I started looking at all the donor profiles!
Good to hear PSS. Get that plan happening. 😄
Sounds like a good idea to do that procedure. Hope you get in to see someone about it soon.
No I haven't, literally all I've had is the usual blood tests when looking to start IVF and go to CFC and ultrasounds. Two CFC doctors have said the immune testing isn't proven, but am going to ask about that too when I see FS, however, not sure these guys believe in it either.
I've even made an appt to see the infamous Dr Wazza but can't get in until Oct, but I hear so many good things about him and what's a flight to QLD in the scheme of things. I can get in to see another Dr in his practice within two weeks, but thinking of waiting until I have results of hysteroscopy first.
Or maybe just have it done there to get the ball rolling quicker but trying to decide what is the best option/quickest/who is going to look at all options for me. So much to consider!!
He has never previously had anyone in his offices.
My guess is this is the one you can see earlier. (I have seen her taking patients there for about the last month). It's my understanding from what I have seen that she consults with him everyday regarding her patients and it may prove a 'quicker' way of getting in to his circle/advice than waiting until October..
In saying that Wazza is 'the one'.
So glad to see you have a plan 😊
Your experience is now making me a little nervous as I think I have contracted some sort of bug ... I think I might take myself to the GP .
AFM I have had an upset gut since eating a meal at the hospital while having Intralipids last week. It doesn't help that nausea is adding to the general feeling of being unwell. I thought it was a 24 hour thing but it has reared its head a couple of times since then.
It probably doesn't help that I am anxious as we are still waiting to have our next scan (4 weeks since we saw our beans)...
Sunnygirl it's tough yes. For me as a single person I always had to use donor sperm but the reality of a healthy child (and years working in Children's Hospitals) allowed me clarity to acknowledge I could be a mum at my age with help.
The baby may have different DNA but we've carried it for 9 months, and epigenetics and environment play significant factors (I consider those children adopted from overseas) and how wonderful they are growing up in a caring and loving environment.
In your heart I'm sure you'll decide which option is the best for you. Don't be scared though....DE is a whole different and exciting experience compared with the repeated setbacks using your own eggs.
Sunny girl - I think it's an individual experience for all of us. Some ladies here jumped straight in, all guns blazing, and others took a lot longer.
I spent a looonnnggg time trying IVF after IVF (17 full stim cycles) as I desperately wanted a biological child of my own. I believe that was because I already had one awesome boy and desperately wanted our next to be a full biological sibling. I completely fell apart when our last cycle failed (2 days before Christmas!). I thought I was prepared after all the failed cycles and knowing egg donation was an option, but I wasn't. It took me over 6 months to finally start the process. My only regret now is that I feel I wasted 4 years trying with my old eggs and there will be a 5 year gap between my children. Wish I had been able to move on sooner as maybe I would be looking at returning again for another bubs soon.
Everyone is different and you need to do what's best for you when you are ready. Good luck. Xx
PSS where are you located sorry I can't remember... Blinkys plan sounds like a good one. Are you on Wazzas cancellation list? There are a few others around who may assist too but I can't remember where you live x
AFM I spoke to my pharmacist a few weeks ago as he filled my script for provera..he then offered to order in the synarel for me (it was on the same script) as it can take a while to supply. Last night I was cleaning out my meds drawer (as you do) and found a synarel bottle that's 90% full and still in date... So I'll likely only need one bottle for my cycle. Does anyone know if pharmacy's can return drugs unopened? I feel bad as its a small family run pharmacy and he's very lovely and helpful. If it was chemist warehouse I wouldn't blink an eye and just say I need one.... If synarel wasnt $120 a bottle I'd just buy it.
