Hi @mrsparso 👋
I love hearing about IVF babies! It makes me hopeful 😊 Sorry your cycle didn't work. ☹
I might be weird, but twice we've done back-to-back cycles and the second of each of those cycles have produced our best embies. I couldn't do three in a row as my ovaries would really go ballistic, but that is my plan. Two back-to-back stim cycles with PGD and then FET; then another two. Depending of course on how much more we can take the physical, psychological, and financial strain...
@mrsparso - Welcome hun, sorry to hear about your last cycle, hoping you get miracle no.2 soon. By the way I could do with some of those good eggs from the Easter Bunny too if your putting an order in lol!
@Tinachris @Gagingi -Thanks for the info on the scitropin, I have heard of growth hormone and actually asked my last Fs about it but he had never used it. Maybe we should ask Warren if it would be good for me. As for the cost I have a feeling we are going to get into a lot more debt if we are going to get a little miracle I suppose I best get use to it.
AFM - Stuck waiting at the moment which I hate as we masy be waiting for nothing if results come back as abnormal we will have to cycle again anyway.
Hmm...you have me thinking about doing back to back cycle now rather than waiting. April is a lucky month for us as that's when our little boys embryo was transferred.
I found taking all the meds and supplements a bit overwhelming this time around. So I was going to just relax for a month. But perhaps better to push through? We also have only told my parents about going through the process again, so it's really hard to sneak off and do meds without anyone getting suspicious!!
Tinachris I suspect that is at cost. I know Wazza puts quite a bit of effort into sourcing supplements. The pharmacy puts a mark-up on, but I don't think he does. I know with the lipoidal medication he searched out a supplier that would provide the required dose, so that patients weren't having to buy more than they need (it usually comes with two doses).
The only exception I can think of might be if people need it for a condition where it is PBS approved, but I don't know if there is any such condition. I'd also worry about the quality if I got it elsewhere. I think it is what body builders use, though I imagine the dose is rather different.
I've got a great local pharmacist so I'll ask her.
