    I got one of these after our first cycle in July.. But I haven't gotten one for our November cycle. It's very detailed, gives loads of info about the cycle, eg starting FSH dose, maximum oestrogen, date & time of trigger, endometrial phase, oocyte collection number, time of EPU,

    Then partners details eg, volume of sample, concentration, motility, how many eggs inseminated, failed, fertilised.

    And then an individual oocyte/embryo report. Which details every days progress for every single embryo. With codes telling you what all the abbreviations mean.

    Basically it's all the important info about your EPU, Sperm sample & resulting embryos. It also tells me that on day if EPU my lining was still only bloody 5mm thick.

    It says down the very bottom in tiny letters 'forward to clinician'. I'm wondering whether we were meant to be sent it?? ������
    But regardless I've just emailed my nurse to ask for the report for November!
    @Charlie74 no I've never had one of those, sounds pretty good though.
    @Precious40 thinking of you today

    @Charlie74 that info sounds great. From my clinic when i was actually going to change clinics and not tell them i received a patient scientific report which set out info such as how many eggs maturity fertilisation and sperm results. I found it useful to pass on info to dr m recently.

    I got mine from Melbourne Compounding Clinic for $70 delivered by Express Post!

    I don't want to take over tonight because I know it's a tough time for you @Precious40 but to pass on some positive news I feel a lot better after my appt. No alpha match, no Ana, no diabetes etc. I have high nkc and low amh but I'm getting all the treatment for that anyway. He says if this cycle doesn't work it is almost definitely my eggs. So at least now I feel I have a plan b and c. So plan a is this cycle works (doubtful). Then I detox and wait for phi waiting period to end on April 1st and do a laparoscopy and then stims and Pgd testing. If any come back normal and my oven looks ok I'll transfer with the whole immune shebang. If all come back abnormal I'll move onto de in ct mid year. If ct fails by end of the year I'll look at adoption. I don't think I can commit more than 2 years to ivf financially or emotionally. That plan might change depending on loads but at least it's there for me when I lose my shiz when cycles fail. I think some clinics who keep you going without further testing have a lot to answer for.

    All these articles about low success rates, women on welfare forced into the pill and the cost of ivf has me really riled up at the moment. I just don't understand how we can win in this vicious male dominated cycle. Grrrrrr. Lower the cost of Childcare and reduce the cost of ivf and you'll have more women working and more women reproducing. Is it that difficult guys???

    Sorry for the rant ladies. If only we were running the show eh?!
    I really love your plan @Caesardust it sounds like a good one and I'll be putting something similar together myself for this year! Great plan, great outlook and something to really work towards knowing that you've got the next step sorted each time.

    And yes, yes, yes! to your rant - I'm so over this male dominated society, it really needs to change - and you are spot on. How hard is it to reduce the cost of childcare and ivf? It's not like they are great with the budget anyway, wasting billions on things they don't need to, so why can't they figure the basics out?

    @Charlie74 Nope, I've never received one of those. I've only ever received a very basic letter after EPU saying how many eggs were retrieved and fertilised.
    @Precious40 Huge hugs this morning hun.

    My son is on holidays with his Dad at the moment so I've called this week 'get my sh*t together week!'. It's where I'm getting some time to just stop, breath and really think things through instead of sprinting from one thing to another.
    In my heart I've always wanted to do another OE cycle...to do the first 10 days of an OE cycle & see if I can produce more than 2 follicles. If I cancel the cycle at that stage I will only be $500 out of pocket.
    So I guess this apt with LB on Wed has spurred me to confront it. I had a good chat with the DS co-ordinator & the finance dept to get the current cycle costs. So it's giving me something to think about.
    @Tahli I totally understand the desire to go back and see if you can do something with your own eggs. If that's all it's going to cost and it fits in with your potential CT schedule then why not? At least you won't always wonder. That's what I'm going to do probably in March now to give myself more time to recover from this virus / Bell's. I've never even gotten to EPU as I only have produced one main follie even on 600 units, but I feel like I have to have one more go and do something a bit different just so I can put my mind at rest that I did everything possible with my own eggs. I'm on a mega health program right now that is getting results, so by March my eggies should be the best they're going to be!

    @Summer Unfortunately I need to come up with $7300 for the first installment just to see if I can produce more than 2 follicles. And if I do go to EPU another $3500. Plus what ever the meds will cost and $350 for intrallipids and whatever Dr M throws at the cycle. That's alot of moula!! I'd be at least $6,500 OOP. I'd need to plead with my ex for more money pre property settlement and I'm not sure he'd agree.
    In my head, it's a little bit silly that it's 'cheaper' ($3,000 OOP) to fly over to CT for a DE FET than it is to do a stim cycle on home soil.
    I'm going to wait for my apt with LB tomorrow then I'll have a clearer picture.
    But that desire to do one more OE cycle has never left.
    How does your DH feel about a March OE cycle if he doesn't think your healthy enough for a May DE cycle? It must be so tricky for you.
