    just a question for the NK cells treatment, do you have to keep taking everything right into the pregnancy or do you wean off at an earlyish point?

    Around 12 weeks for weaning usually I think.. Maybe slightly longer

    I think the crushing bit was hearing it wasn't worth trying with my OEs after she'd suggested a Boost Cycle and given me a script for meds to boost the condition of my eggs and I'd reserved my DS etc. She certainly wasn't saying to stop using my OEs in our consult 2 weeks ago.
    @tuxcat If I had access to IUI I'd do it in my off cycles but b/c I'm over 40 I can't access IUI in Victoria. The success rates are too low apparently. Thanks for the suggestion though.
    I remember following the final part of @McGBertie's ttc journey. What an inspiration!
    Makes me wonder if she's telling you not to bother as it'll mess up her own personal stats for the 40+ category???

    If you want to try with your OE's then transfer over to Dr NL instead and have a go. It's up to you if you want to try Luv. It's not like you wouldn't be going in with your eyes wide open in regards to success rates etc.

    I know with Wazza the basic immune stuff is to wean off at 12 weeks but with Dr M and such, I think it would depend on your individual circumstances as to how long you'd need to take everything.
    @Chiefsgirl will be able to clarify a bit more about that

    I'm so sorry @Tahli, I really wish it had been a better outcome for you. I wonder, if your 'oven' was found to be fine, what has changed your FS's opinion all of a sudden? Do you think it was simply a matter of "Well, if DE won't implant, what hope do her OE's have?"


    Me, I'm of the opinion that you should seek an alternative opinion, lol. And I know I keep banging on about this, but I really DO believe it - if your gut is telling you to do an OE cycle then d@mmit, that's what you should be doing.


    I hold a lot of stock in gut instinct. Maybe spend a little time thinking on it. Listen to what your inner voice is telling you. Do YOU think an OE cycle is a possibility? If so, make an appointment with someone who will help you do that, so you don't wonder about it for the rest of your life

    @BlondeinBrisvegas She said b/c I'm only getting one or two OEs it wasn't worth trying. I know this will anger a lot of you as I have no doubt a huge amount of over 40's only get one or two eggs. And @Blossom74 this in no way should deter you.
    Yep, you were spot on BiB, I reckon she's thought, well if this patient can't fall pregnant after 3 DE cycles with perfect blasts then she's not going to get pregnant with a day 3 OE transfer, let's get her off my books, she'll drag down my own success rates. Ruthless but that's exactly what I believe she's thinking too.

    Default IVF over 40 #25

    I asked her what my chances of success are with an OE transfer. She shook her head and indicated none.
    She said the women she refers to CT usually get pregnant on their first or second try, so to do one more double DE transfer and stop. She suggested only taking Clexane (homo MTHFR) and Astrix (to prevent a stroke). And that I should have a higher chance of success after the clean out.
    I have a bit to come to terms with.

    PS: She was completely relaxed pre-theatre, when we chatted, and it felt more like she was talking to me as a friend...plus I get a feeling she wants me off her books now. I think @Sue77 knows the feeling!
    That's awesome that your oven got the all clear. At least that's one thing you can tick off your list. Will be interesting to see what advice your FS in CT gives you. Must be a bit upsetting that LB indicated no chance with OE. I agree with Blonde though, and if you're aware of your chances, it's really up to you if you want to give it a go. I was very close to 42 when I found the magic OE. So it is possible. And I don't get many eggs either. And you do still have those lovely frosties as back up though x

    Look...I can see her point about only getting 1 or 2 OE's & she's right to make you aware that the chances aren't great however, again, it would be & is your decision about whether to try or not.

    You could always pull the pin before EPU if you only had a couple of follicles & weren't feeling confident. I say fruck her & go elsewhere to a FS who will support your choices & have a go if doing this final OE Cycle is extremely important to you xo

    @tuxcat I start weaning at 10 weeks, clexane stops altogether, prednisone will take another 20 days (from 25mg) but this is genea, I don't think they go the whole hog compared to others.
