    I've also had my share of mancubs before I met the last one (8 years ago) who is 7 years my junior *double cough* He was out of my age range on RSVP but was a random match that popped up and by then I decided to hell with age and photos and went purely by profiles that made me laugh. Did the trick! Turns out he's a hottie too so win win really

    But yes, before him there were a few in their 20's just looking for some fun which made being single a little more interesting. Sounds like a few of us gals have the cougar instinct

    I am still confused and weighing options between surrogacy and the aggressive immune protocol... .. After my brain surgery 5 years ago, I have slight weakness in my right limbs, my neurologist is fine with me going through IVF etc.. It's just that I have gone through so much IVF treatment after that major surgery, that I feel exhausted. We are going to meet Wazza. let's see what he says . NL advised me towards surrogacy if that's possible as it had the higher success rate...he even said he would try to use the growth hormones in my next cycle for embryo quality. As I produce lots of eggs but abt 2 blasts per cycle. Has anyone had an experience with growth hormones?

    And I believe ivig is quite expensive too. How many times to you need to take it ?
    Taking this decision is a bit overwhelming at this stage. We will be starting a fresh stimulated cycle with pgd with NL end of this month. And we are going to see Wazza in the 3rd. We are staying in Brissy for 3 days. I was wondering if any bloods or scans need to be done, can they be done in Brisbane while you are cycling in Melbourne. Any ladies having any experience in this?

    I'm ashamed to say I fell into that category too shortly after I broke up with my ex husband. It gave me a much needed ego boost to have a super hot 26yo wanting me at the lowest point in my life but I prefer my men mature so it wasn't to be. It was especially ego-boosting when we were out 'clubbing' the night we met and some hot young women were trying real hard to get onto him but he couldn't take his eyes off me. I guess there are a lot of younger men out there who go for cougars lol.

    @Sue77 yes ivig is very expensive but intralipids are the alternative to them now and they are currently costing me $500 a go because I don't have private hospital cover.

    @Sue77 I'm sure Wazza will point you in the right direction, he doesn't pull any punches and will tell it like it is. You have other considerations with regards to the operation you had and your recovery, so I'm sure he'll take that into account. They do blood tests next door, so you will be able to get those done on site and Wazza scans in his office. Now that you've found out about the problems that you do have, it could be worth exploring a cycle with the immune protocols to see what happens? Then you won't have any regrets and you will know that the way forward would be the surrogate.

    Good luck

    @Sue77 I'm not sure as to whether you've looked into Sth Africa as an option for surrogacy:
