I am new to the blog and was just having a read through the comments. My specialist is Dr Lynn Burmeister in Melbourne. I am 38, my first round of IVF I learned I was a poor responder but they managed to collect 5 eggs and we got two embryos. I miscarried one and the second one didn't take, our second round of IVF was cancelled a few weeks ago because it looked like the response was even poorer than before. I went to see Lynn today and she is going to give me blood test on day two of my next try in January to see if it's worth while going head if not she will put me on microgynon. Has anyone been on this with any success in the past?
I am at the point wondering if we should keep going, the success rates that I have seen for poor responders have been so low so I am starting to feel like maybe we are not being realistic with our chances.
