Oh thats exciting @Chyna that your moving forward, so what tablets will you be on if you have a natural cycle?
@Heyside he would like me to stary taking letrozole, nitrodur patches, trental, claxane and prednisone until saturday when we go see him for a scan then start fsh Shots and more pregnyl a bit later on. All a bit overwhelming. Just sitting at the chemist now waiting.
That sounds like a good plan @Chyna although yes can be initially overwhelming. I am on all of that medication too apart from the letrozole which I have done in the past. Hope it helps hun and gets you your bfp x
Just wanted to join this thread as ive spent days and days reading threads on bubhub trying to find people like me. Ive read so many good things about wazza do Im abandoning my clinic after my next 4th retrieval fails (so much for positive thinking). I rang wazzas office today because i couldnt go to work because i couldnt stop crying. So ive got an appointment with charlotte in june (couldn't get in to see wazza until december but they promise me charlotte will do the same stuff). Big decision because im in regional nsw, 1200km from brisbane and to get there I'll have to drive 4hrs to sydney then fly to brisbane!!! I dont know how to do my signature yet but my story so far is: im 35, have stage 4 endo, poor responder, 1st ivf 3 x 5 day blasties, fresh transfer= bfn, fet = bfn, 3rd blastie didnt survive the thaw, 2nd ivf, 4 eggs, 1 fertilised, 3 day transfer=bfn, 3rd ivf, 4 eggs, 1 fertilised, 2 day transfer bfn, clinic is kicking me out after ivf #4 (they didnt say that exactly but thats what they meant)
@gourgeousgeorge welcome!! I don't think you will regret your decision to change specialists at all, I recently changed to Charlotte (she is trained by warren, said that herself to me) and is lovely. Seems very through compared to my previous specialist. I am starting cycle prep with Syneral tomorrow 😜
@Tinachris thanks for your kind welcome. Its good to hear you think charlotte is a good fs because i was thinking if im going to bother to travel 1200km it was really only because i felt like wazza was my last resort. Its weird to be planning to start at a new clinic before ive even begun my 4th cycle at my old clinic but ive already bought all the meds and they said theyd reduce the cost so i may as well give it one last go seeing the clinic is 'only' a 400km round trip away. I think AF is coming tonight or tomorrow so will be starting soon. My current FS said after this next round, id need donor eggs and i feel like im not ready for that yet and i have no friend/family options and i just cant see how id ever get the money to do an overseas donor thing. One of the most frustrating things for me is that my first retrieval 10 months ago, i got 8 eggs, 7 fertilised and 3 made it to day 5 so its hard for me to believe that within the next 4 months my ovaries started to shut down and my egg quality went to crap??? Can it really happen that quickly? I keep thinking that maybe my 2nd and 3rd retrievals were the anomalies. If all 3 had been poor then i think it would be easier to accept. Anyway i know this is a total ME post but i promise once i get to know everyone and where they are at, I'll be less self centered. And its traditional in our ivf culture for your first post to be whiney because the fact your posting means you've reached a type of breaking point, yeah? I spent 3 days a while back reading 5 years worth of a thread on 'ivf over 40' because i figured, hey, you're only as old as your ovaries' lol but even though my ovaries think they're 45, im only 35 and i felt it wouldnt be right joining that group, although maybe I'll get the chance in 5 years, lol but not really. O.K. Enough about me. Wishing everyone lots of babydust, bfp's and thb's (i just invented that, correct me if im wrong) it means 'take home babies' :-)
@Tinachris, oh and best of luck with your cycle. I'll be watching and hoping for you. You're my first 'real' friend on bubhub. As such, you've just been cast in a leading role as a main character in the soap opera that is my life now. (See i'm not totally self-centered:-))
Welcome @gorgeousgeorge! I am sure Charlotte will help... She started my last cycle while Wazza was away and was every bit as thorough as Warren is 😊.
It's lovely to have you in the group... I know it has been an awesome support for me - don't know what I would do without being able to chat to these wonderful people about everything!
Welcome to the thread @gorgeousgeorge its a great place for support. Your in good hands with Charlotte she did my EPU and definitely follows the way Warren works. Really hoping all works out for you this next cycle and you are pleasantly surprised but nice to have your next plan of action in place.
