    Hey KMP I've discovered the group coming here are known donors. They meet you via Skype before they arrive, catch up while they're here including social interactions and go on the register and come here agreeing to be know and keep in touch. It's really expensive! I was excited at first but now apprehensive due to cost.

    MamaKes is correct... and it is legal it is being run by QFG and all the same rules apply as with known donors... counselling sessions etc. And a very reputable Dr through QGF is the contact for here in Australia.

I'm thinking Dr M as she's so lovely but I need my next FS to support a strong immune protocol.
    @Tahli I had dr m and she was so good. Probably the best dr I have ever been to. So kind, gentle and very genuine. Really caring and seemed as knowledgable as anyone I've seen here. I'm still hoping your beta is a game changer and we can forget this conversation!! X

    Exactly 13dpo and still a BFN. I know I don't have any hcg in my system as it always gives me MS straight away so I'm actively planning my next cycle.
    I've just emailed CFC and unfortunately the gorgeous Dr M is currently on holidays until 4th Jan, so I'm going to have to pick a different FS's brains for a double embryo FET treatment plan & then I'd still like Dr M to do the transfer when she gets back.
    Does any-one have feedback on whether to chose Dr H or Dr LR? I'm hoping one is brilliant at being able to boost my lining by suggesting Progy, Viagra and E2 patches.
    I wish we had stats on who had better success rates! This will be cycle 4 with CFC so I'm desperate for it to work.

    Hi @Tahli, we used Dr H on our DE cycle and tomorrow I hit 18 wks with non identical twins. I found him very quiet/not chatty (very professional though) but this is similar to my Aus based FS/OBGYN so it felt familiar. I haven't had lining issues so can't speak to what his lining boosting protocol is. I hope this cycle is the one for you.

    @Tahli, Dr W is there until the end of December I believe? Isn't he your normal FS?

    @Tahli my heart is breaking for you my dear. Those stark white HPTs are like a knife through the heart but you are truly an inspiration. I hope you don't mind me chiming in but I read on the over 40s thread that you’ve had a few laps but have not been diagnosed with any endo but I'm wondering if you've ever been diagnosed with adenomyosis which is like endo but it grows in the muscle of the uterine wall.

    I was diagnosed with adeno at the beginning of my fertility journey in 2011 but my specialist didn't seem to think that it was of any concern and aside from having what is charmingly referred to as a ‘bulky uterus’ (typical with adeno sufferers) when viewed on ultrasound, I had zero symptoms. Last year after multiple failed transfers with good quality embryos I was searching for answers... I came across the adeno thread on bub hub and a research paper by Kelton Tremellen (an Australian IVF specialist) titled 'Ultrasound diagnosed adenomyosis has a negative impact on successful implantation following GnRH antagonist IVF treatment'
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22997247 which strongly suggests adeno can prevent embryos from implanting and also cause early miscarriage.

    I consulted with Dr Tremellon and he recommended between 6-12 weeks of down regulation prior to a FET with my eggs in August this year. Based on his advice I was treated with 2 rounds of Zoladex to shrink the adeno before the FET of 2 embryos and for only the second time in five years I had a BFP (Beta of 1550 at 17 dpo which was a very strong positive – FS thought both might have implanted!). Unfortunately, I miscarried at 6 weeks but I strongly believe that down regulating my adenomyosis with Zoladex played a key role in my embryo implanting. I am currently on my second Zoladex implant before my donor cycle in SA next month and Dr Matebese is totally onboard with this.... sorry for the long post but I thought I'd share my experience with you as it might be something that is worth investigating before your next FET in SA... Take care of yourself Tahli.

    @Felicity Fox thanks heaps for reminding me about adenomyosis and sharing your story, including treatment plan. The sonographer mentioned it to me on my last scan. Ive sort of replied over on the over 40s thread. I hope that's ok.

    Hi Tahli, yes totally ok... i've posted over there regarding CA125 blood test which might also be an indicator of whether you may have adeno.

    Tahli - I have always used Dr LeR in SA and think he is great. Good Luck.
