    @Bongley im a bit confused how come you need to stim for a fet? Is it to catch ovulation?

    @midnite01 yeah, its to either bring on an ovulation or to create one with a trigger rather than just relying on estrogen and progesterone meds. The first two 'cryo cycles' (FETs) with just the meds didn't work so I am trying the stim method.
    So I will inject 50 units of puregon every day until one or two follicles ripen and then they will let me ovulate naturally or trigger it with ovadrel. Then 5 days later pop in an embryo.

    Hi Girls,
    I've been following your stories for a couple of weeks now and finally joined today so I thought I'd say hello.
    I'm 43, my DP is 47 and we completed our first two cycles with Genea in Sydney in September and October (without success). The first cycle we only had one egg which didn't survive beyond Day 3 and in our second cycle we got 4 eggs, implanted one but BFN. Obviously my poor old eggs aren't great quality (we didn't have any embryos that survived to Day 6 to freeze, even though apparently they looked good the day before!)
    Anyway I'm the eldest of 6, my mother only had to look at my father and they were pregnant and I've done a lot of parenting of my siblings when I was younger but have always yearned for my own (seriously, where's the justice??) My DP has no issues and I've got a great relationship with endometriosis.
    We're having a bit of a break until early next year but I just want to say I'm so glad I've found this forum as it was such a lonely time and the 2WW was horrible!
    I'm beginning to think that perhaps our only option now is donor eggs so I might start researching that avenue.
    Congratulations to those of you who are pregnant and best wishes to those still trying. It's a harrowing process but if successful, so worth it. I'm for all of us!

    All our family/close friends know about our IVF journey. At the time only my immediate family knew & one of my BFF's.

    We made the mistake of telling the abovementioned when we did Cycle 1 & after having to tell them all it was a BFN was just too much. Going over it again & again with ph calls etc was just like sticking a sword through our hearts over & over so after that we stayed quiet about our subsequent Cycles until we were succesful.

    Even then only immediate family & my BFF were told. Everyone else in the extended family/friends didn't find out until I was past 20 wks. Now we don't care who knows including everyone at DP's workplace!! He's quick off the mark to inform all & sundry about our "Miracle of Modern Science"😁

    We're not ashamed of DD being IVF conceived in any shape,way or form. We're extremely proud of all the blood, sweat & tears we went through to have her. We both worked our frucking guts out & went without for a very long time to get the $ to keep going. I'm talking sitting at night with only the tv going using mini torches to try to save a $ wherever we could!! Yeah...things were that tough financially. Mind you...there's not many who do IVF that have unlimited funds where money's no object.

    We're also eternally grateful that this technology exists in our lifetime so that we could at least try regardless of the outcome. DD will grow up always being aware that IVF & Wazza helped us make her. I've bought a book to help explain it to her & have begun reading it to her so that eventually it'll just become a normal part of the story of how she came to us so we could be a family of 3...well 5 counting our pets!!😊

    Im not ashamed embarrassed or anything like that about IVF - there should be badge of honour for everyone that goes through it . for me I don't want my family to know more than anything else as I think they'd think I was crazy. I had a neonatal death ( daughter born 28 weeks in 2008) and I think they'd think I was crazy trying to put myself through another pregnancy at 42.

    Default IVF over 40 #21

    Hi @Countrygirl72 and good luck with your journey. I'm currently pregnant with twins through donor eggs in Cape Town and I highly recommend you have a look at the 'egg donation in South Africa #11' thread. Lots of good info on there about how to start the process if you go that way. Obviously I'm a big advocate of it

    You know, I'm not sure we will be! Crazy I know, the chances of my eggs coming to the party are miniscule. I'm in two minds but I think my partner is more scared than I am!

    @Countrygirl72 Welcome to the thtead Luv😊

    Apologies...I meant to tell you that earlier but got side tracked with dinner/dishes etc.

    Anyhoo..I'm sorry you've had no success thus far but will send a prayer out to the Universe that you will on your next upcoming Cycle in the New Year!!!😊
