    @leyshoja As the cliche goes, when it's your own baby it's completely different! I'm not overly interested in other people's kids and I have absolutely no doubt that it stems from the heartache of it taking 10 yrs to have my son. Even before starting ttc no 2 I still struggled around pregnant women which in theory I should have been fine with b/c I had my son. Some scars are pretty deep.
    You and I have the same history of loss I think, 2 bubs at the same stage, then a healthy live birth, so I understand where you're coming from. I know I couldn't breath out til I got to wk 11 too. How you feel might start to evolve with the first few scans, and those first kicks and movement around 20 wks. You'll do brilliantly love.

    Hello ladies, I'm new here (well, revisiting bubhub after a few years) I'm 41and on the downhill run to the next number.... I have a miracle little girl due ivf and am now a solo mummy wanting to try for a sibling.....
    I have had an initial appt with my old specialist and after getting the result of the AMH test he's given up on me, so I have made an appt for another specialist for a second opinion.

    I began taking a range of vitamins along with DHEA to help support egg quality however it seems to be playing havoc with my cycle. I've always been a 29dayer..... Every. Month..... Never late.... But I'm now close to two weeks late. Definitely not pregnant sadly.....
    my appt was for next Monday (19th) but I called yesterday to the clinic and they moved my appt to this Monday......
    Has anyone else experienced a missing AF while taking DHEA or is it the dreaded early menopause due to my AMH result of less than 1..... (I'm devastated)
    thNks in advance

    Hi @Aniras, I'm not sure why you'd be late like that but peri menopause ( years before menopause) causes irregularity. If you are still ovulating you can still fall pregnant in my opinion, and you are on the lighter side of over 40. Hopefully the next doc will give you more positive feedback. Good luck with your appt.

    Welcome back @Aniras! I'm also a solo mum of one, ttc number two, a hard gig. I'm sorry I don't know anything about DHEA but just wanted to say hi.

    @Krysta74 I've been thinking of you too Luv and wondering how you and your DH are doing?? I'm sure he feels the loss as well and yes, it may be in a different way, but he'd still be feeling it nonetheless.

    I used to think my DP didn't care as much with every BFN that came. Why would he?? He's already got kids so not being able to have anymore wouldn't be as painful for him as it was going to be for me having had none. I realised just how much he wanted to have another child with me after Cycle 4 failed.

    He's not a man of many words either, so to have him break down crying in the car on the way home after BT and blaming himself etc made me realise he did desperately want another child as much as I did and despite not showing his pain and anguish up until then or verbalising his feelings, he was as broken hearted as I was. I'm telling you this because I'll bet your DH is just as devastated as you are and is dealing with it in his own way plus trying to be strong for you too

    I know you're looking into finances to see if you can try again in the near future so I'm hoping the Lovelies here will be able to help you to find another FS and/or Clinic that's more affordable for you & DH.

    You're in Vic so am guessing Melbourne is going to be your closest city to seek treatment from or is that too far from where you are out in the country Luv?? If it is, please let us know where your closest major city is so the Lovelies can help out as I don't want you going back to that sh!thole Clinic with those uncaring people if you can possibly help it and I know $ wise means it could be your only option

    I also want to say how very sorry I am if my optimism and enthusiasm over the last couple of weeks has contributed to your pain and loss. In my heart of hearts, I truly believed that everything was going to be ok. I feel a sense of responsibility in making things worse for you by encouraging you to be positive and hopeful etc when I should've just STFU and kept things on a very grounded level until you knew. I'm so sorry Luv I hope you can forgive me.

    Anyhoo...hoping some of the Lovelies here will be able to help refer you to a Clinic/FS that's not too costly so you can try again. Please take care of yourself as best as you can and know that it's ok to feel angry, sad, cry and vent and rage etc. Let yourself feel whatever it is that comes up when it does as it's all apart of the grieving process. I also hope DH will be able to open up to you in some way and express how he's feeling so you can both grieve and mourn your loss together

    Hi Aniras and welcome back!!! I took DHEA in Cycle 4/5 and never had any issues with AF being late in my experience. Agree with everything @leyshoja /JM said but then again, it could be the DHEA throwing your AF out of whack as apparently it does cause irregular periods in some women.

    Good luck with your appointment on Monday with the new FS. Perhaps get them to run some BT's to check your hormone levels out to see if you've at least ovulated if AF hasn't turned up by then.

    that your upcoming Cycle is a success!!

    Yep...Royal Jelly is supposed to help with egg quality as is Melatonin. I took 1/2 tsp of fresh Royal Jelly for a total of 6 months between Cycle 4/5 as well as all the other supps on Wazza's list including the DHEA/Melatonin.

    Only prob is to receive the maximum benefits, all supplements etc should be taken for a minimum of 3 months if possible which it always isn't.

    @BIB, you have absolutely nothing to apologise for, and your strength and patience has been one of the things that have helped me through the past two weeks, so please don't feel bad.

    As much as you were 100% positive all would be well, I knew in my heart after that first bleed that I had lost my little one. When I first fell pregnant I had an instant awareness that he/she was with me, and two weeks later I felt him/her go.

    There is nothing you or anyone else could have said to have convinced me my baby was still here, but that doesn't mean that you had to give up hope on my behalf. Indeed, your continued positivity and reassurance was what got me though the past two weeks. And I'm sure there are many, many women who say "I don't feel pregnant" to have things turn out perfectly 8 months later. I just wasn't one of them.

    We live in Northern Victoria, right up on the border. The closest regional centres to me would be Bendigo (140km), Shepparton (170km), Albury (320km) or Ballarat (250km). Melbourne would be roughly 290km away.

    Any advice as to low cost clinics in those areas would be greatly appreciated.

    Krysta

    @Krysta74 my clinic is in Brisbane 😕
    I drive 2 hours to it as I live in regional Qld. I'm sure some of the other lovelies will be able to recommend closer clinics, but these guys are wonderful. They skyped appointments with me, and helped me keep travel down wherever possible. For what they charge, it would still be cheaper than some of the other clinics, figuring in some cheap flights etc. let me know if you need more info x
