leyshoja, good work gal!
AFM Got my period today (9DPO GRR) SO, I should start the meds for FET tomorrow. ETA for transfer 10th september!
Great Leyshoja, I'll be really interested to see what they have to say, at least you can get intralipids too on your return with your bfp.
Bongley, how exciting, you're a week before me!
@Charlie74 I don't know about the Medicare rebate though I imagine if you had to freeze due to for eg, starting chemo or something, there might be a rebate for that???
As for freezing your eggs, they don't particularly freeze/thaw well unfertilised and have a lower success rate than freezing/thawing embryo's as unfertilised eggs have a higher water content than embryo's who've already got cells formed so consequently are more unstable in the freezing/thawing process.
Has your DP seen a urologist to find out what the success rates are of surgery etc??

Ive heard similar about lower results from egg freezing due to them being fragile. I thought you could get a medicare rebate as long as there was an identifiable cause of infertility.
@Charlie74 my very first cycle was an egg freeze and yes you still get the rebate, but the fertilisation rates are lower. I had 10 eggs frozen and ended up with 2 embies when I was 40. 6 and 8 months later I got less eggs but more embies. My rate was 20% from eggs and maybe 30% from fresh eggs. Not that huge a difference I suppose and if it's your only option I would definitely say do it because time is not our friend.
Charlie74 maybe he wants whatever it takes to have a family too? You know I kinda forgot that with this DE round that, as different as it feels to ME it must feel like the same (or much more similar) as a normal cycle to my partner, its obviously still his genetic child. But here I am thinking how good he is to go along with what I want. Hm.
thanks for the tips on CoQ10 everyone. I'd ordered some from iherb (super ubiqinol CoQ10 with bioPQQ 100mg) so will try it. the book seems to suggest I need to have it for about 4 mths in advance (but perhaps this was the DHEA). I don't think I'll do the DHEA due to the side effects. I've probably left it all too late, but we'll see.
