    I'm booked in tomorrow - can't wait. Have been so sick over the past few weeks. I'm hoping things will ease up and not get worse.
    Welcome Zara - you'll get lots of support and info from these beautiful ladies.
    Good luck for tomorrow for your scan. That's what was worrying me a little as I haven't been sick just a bit tired and sore breasts.

    Thanks Lisa - don't panic with the symptoms - everyone is so different and some ladies don't feel much at all. Tiredness and sore breasts are great signs - that's all you need!!!! You've got a beautiful little Bub growing in there and that's all that matters xx

    AFM - I am looking into buying the Estradiol; can any of you lovely ladies give me a price guide - what would be a good price, and what would be too expensive to pay?
    Would a Compounding Chemist be more likely to keep it in stock, or do they have to get it in usually? I need it for the end of the month and don't want to get caught.
    Why estriadol? I think you can just use progynova and that's readily available at any pharmacy - its all just estrogen 2mgs - from memory its about $19 here for two sheets worth. I also got some from CFC when I was there and yes its only 1 sheet in the box there and it wasn't any cheaper that I could tell. The first time i was there they gave me Estrace, last time progynova, so I'm not sure why they switched. Crinone is much cheaper in SA so get that there too see you through to 10w pregnant its literally half the price.

    Hey Emski - just to clarify Estriodal is progynova. It's the same thing. Estriodal is just the fancy medical term for that group of drugs! Jennski Most chemist's sell it for about $19 as Emski said, the discount ones around $12.

    Yeah that's what I mean...no need to have it compounded, just buy it under the progynova label

    Well, just had my 5th failed transfer, and trying to face up to the reality we need to make another plan. Really sucks that today is my birthday, and would never have thought at age 42 I would still not be a mum.


    I guess I would like to ask a bit of advice form you girls that have been going down the egg donation route, as this is all so new. My DH is 38, and our diagnosis have been Male factor. Neverthless, two miscarriages and 3 failed transfers later, here we are.

    RE is sure the problem is the embryo is just not "the right one" between my age, and his sperm quality, and I suppose we can keep trying and hope we one day get "the right one", or try something different. We are in NZ, so testing the embryo's are as expensive as the cycle, hence impossible.

    Our thoughts have been to go down the egg donation route as hopefully we reduce one of the factors that contributes to our constant failure, and the baby will genetically be linked to at least one of us. Since I am orignially from SA, going there makes sense.

    I guess my questions are as follows:
    - does our plan make sense? (opting for egg donation where male factor is the recongnised problem)
    -where do we even start?

    I hope I am not asking silly questions!

    Thank you ladies.
    Welcome Zara☺️ your plan of using DE and possibly DS (?) is not such a silly one. Our FS explained that often a younger egg can make up the shortfall for MFI that an older egg just can't do. (Literally it's too tired and doesn't have the energy of a younger egg 😁).
    In our OE cycles I would produce plenty of eggs but due to my age (39) and the MFI they just didn't make the distance.
    In our case he suggested we do a 50/50 split (half donor/half DH) so that we could be 100% certain of our choice. As it is the FS was right (to a degree) and DH's sperm liked the DE much better than mine 😉 and we are now 24 weeks with twins! We also have 5 embies on ice but these are all double donor.

    In terms of where to start - if you are comfortable with it all email CFC and they will send you an info pack. Then contact all the donor agencies suggested on their list and start looking at profiles. It really is an easy process. GL x

    Leyshoja - enjoy the mother city 😀

    Lisa - great news on your scan

    Tannymac - good luck for your scan today
