It's nice to see some familiar names. I must admit, I haven't read through all of the posts yet, it looks like I've missed a lot. We are about to try our second round of IVF at the start of my next AF (due 18th). We are trying a few new approaches this time around, and I'd love to know if any of you have already tried them?
Some of you may recall that we didn't get any viable embryos for freezing in our Jan cycle but implanted the healthiest two of the three survivors and gave it our bet shot but BFN.
Had a phone consult with my FS yesterday. Given our poor embryo quality and development last time, she's switching us from Gonal to Menapure, which apparently is more natural. Has anyone tried this?
We've also selected to add the extra growth hormone injection, despite research last year indicating it's not as effective as first thought. However, from the few pages of posts I read, it sounds like some people may have had success with it?
She's also chosen for us to have double micro injection for 50% of our eggs. Has anyone had this done?
Also, she'll be using an extended egg culture media to encourage egg growth. Anyone had luck with this?
Before she ended the conversation she looked at my MRI report from last year and mentioned minor Ademomyosis (spelling?), which they weren't worried about last time, but this time, given it will be our last fresh cycle, she said we should try the hormone suppressants. Does anyone else have Ademo?
She gave me a few options and I decided that we'll have the retrieval, then go on hormone suppressants and have a frozen transfer 6 weeks later. So, a long cycle for us. Has anyone else done this?
Sorry for the long post and long list of questions!
