    Thanks tahli. It's so annoying that I can't test because of the Ovidrel. Torturous!

    Well it's a BFFN for me. AF arrived in full force today, although I knew it was a BFN on Wed when I got a negative on a FRER.


    By yesterday I was looking ahead to the future and my plan to have a break from IVF for at least 2 months or maybe indefinitely. I've already put my next plan into action - I saw a naturopath yesterday who gave me a herbal potion he says will make me feel amaaaaaazing and, who knows, might even get me pregnant (he gave me a 50% chance..). I'm physically and mentally exhausted after 8 stim cycles, 3 FETs and 2 miscarriages in the last 20 months so I'm actually really looking forward now to just feeling absolutely fabulous, forgetting about IVF milestones, and coming out from under a rock and being social again. I will actually be able to have the odd drink. Hallefrigginlujah. I had one the other night and suddenly remembered who I used to be. That confirmed this is the right move. I need to have some fun again.


    GL to everyone.

    Totally understand why you need a break and I hope the naturopath has the magic potion for you for a BFFP!!! Even just to feel revitalised after all you've been through will be worth it

    Enjoy your break...Eat, drink and have a bloody good time won't you Luv!!! After you've recharged your batteries, you can think about what you want to do

    I'm so sorry to hear that @Golden Egg. A break sounds like the perfect idea. Eat, drink, be merry & enjoy rediscovering who you are away from this IVF malarkey! Big hugs, xx.

    Default IVF Poor Responder

    Hi Everyone,

    I am new to the blog and was just having a read through the comments. My specialist is Dr Lynn Burmeister in Melbourne. I am 38, my first round of IVF I learned I was a poor responder but they managed to collect 5 eggs and we got two embryos. I miscarried one and the second one didn't take, our second round of IVF was cancelled a few weeks ago because it looked like the response was even poorer than before. I went to see Lynn today and she is going to give me blood test on day two of my next try in January to see if it's worth while going head if not she will put me on microgynon. Has anyone been on this with any success in the past?

    I am at the point wondering if we should keep going, the success rates that I have seen for poor responders have been so low so I am starting to feel like maybe we are not being realistic with our chances.

    Thanks everyone!

    Sorry, I can't help you Maggie. I presume she's putting you on the pill as some kind of oestrogen priming protocol but I really don't know. Hopefully someone else will chime in with some information. Good luck and keep us updated.
