You've motivated me though and I'll shop around for other non-PBS cycle drugs.

    Well, I can definitely recommend Melbourne Compounding Clinic. I scanned a copy of my prescription to them yesterday afternoon at 4pm, and my DHEA arrived in the mail today at 11am! Considering I live in the middle of FNW that is pretty close to a miracle in my opinion!

    Now that I have my DHEA, any tips for the newbie? Are there any common side effects I should be aware of? How did you all feel whilst taking it?

    I think it may be a good sign @Infinity. I have an appointment with our old FS next week. Yes, I know everyone is going to sigh at me for going back there, but all I keep going back to is : He DID get me pregnant last time. Ladies, I'd go to Satan himself if he could get me pregnant again. At whilst support/lack thereof is an issue, at the end of the day I have already been through the worst possible outcome, and I'm still here, so I think I want to go with the man whom I know has done it once before for me.

    Financially, we have barely enough money left to do one more cycle. Things will be tight. But I feel like I need to give it one more try. This will be our final shot - guaranteed - so I am thinking about two possible issues to bring up with my FS:-

    1. Refusing to proceed with EPU for anything less than 3 follies. Yep, it would be $500 down the drain, but if I got 6 the next cycle it would be worth it, and

    2. Requesting PGD testing. Again, pricey, but even if the results come in and ALL of my embies are duds, it's still not as costly as transferring embies that have no chance of survival to start with. And frankly, I really want to minimise my chances of going through what I went through again. (Pray God, if I do get to this point I hope there is one that stands a chance though, or it would be a very sad ending to the journey for me...)

    I saw my GP today too. He gave me a prescription for a new BP med as my other meds were making my calves and feet swell. It was getting so bad I was having trouble walking in the evening so I'm glad to be given an alternative.

    I also managed to get out of him a prescription for a diuretic - a pill to release all the stored fluid in my body and reduce my puffy, swollen look. He gave it to me on the promise that I would only take it a few days, but there are 100 pills in the bottle. So freakin excited. He said I would lose about 2kgs of water weight within a day or two. These pills are like gold

    So that's me. No other news, unless you're all interested in hearing about the 3 loads of laundry I have waiting to be folded. Sigh....

    @Blossom74 I was taking 3 DHEA/day and don't think I got any side effects. I started it with Wazza's pharmacy though, so hard to know. Hopefully you'll be all good! Good luck with your cycle. Are you starting next cycle or letting DHEA settle in for a couple of months? Are you doing ICSI/PICSI - our results were so much better with PICSI, but only necessary if you need ICSI of course.
    @Bongley - Glad you have a date! I'm in TWT - beta 19th (on boosters so no point in POAS - hopefully I'm not breaking the forum code here - I know you are loud and proud stick w****s ).
    @Summer - a natural conception would be a dream!
    @Tahli - hope you are traveling well.

    Baby by dust to all

I've only ever fallen pregnant naturally so that has to work in my favour! I'm starting to POAS on Monday 14th which will be 9dpo and that's the earliest I've ever got a faint BFP. So kinda joining you!
    @Summer Absolutely does count! I love seeing a good LH surge and feeling a weensy bit in control for a change
    @Gagingi what DPO are you?
    @Sue77 ah yes, I knew there were a few of us! Best of luck tomorrow, let us know what happens. I hope theres a lovelly fresh blastocyst for you. Damn those boosters. I hope I don't have any more after wednesday or there will be no point for me testing either and I will go frikin potty.

It's fine for us on the boards to have opinions, but it's you who has to go through it. You just do what's right for you, we are all here to support you through the journey that you choose, no matter what. Also I'm massively excited for you that you have a plan and a way forward!
    Yes, absolutely this

    I believe we used ICSI last time - they selected an ideal sperm and injected it directly into the egg? I'm a bit crap with all the terminology but I think that's what it was, as DH doesn't have very good numbers.

    If we go ahead, and I still want to chat with the FS to make sure it's the right thing to do, ideally I'd like to wait until next year. Sometime around late Jan/Feb but I suppose a lot of that depends ion my cycle, so who knows, lol. I guess I'd have to be a bit flexible with that

    ETA: Yep, I'll be taking 3 of the DHEA per day too.

    @Sue77, I've never done acupuncture myself, but my doctor says if it's something you enjoy and it relaxes you it certainly can't hurt to do it. My personal opinion is that it would have to be beneficial to go into a transfer feeling relaxed, as opposed to being stressed
