Second cycle was Gonal f (450) and luveris (75) plus growth hormone saizen. 15 follies, but only 10 eggs. 9 fertilised, 6 made it to day 3. 2 transferred and 4 frozen. Bfn.
2 transferred during FET and bfn.
Have you tried something other than Gonal f?
@pingc383 I haven't tried anything other than Gonal F. Last cycle I was on Gonal f 350 and just Orgalutran. I got 11 eggs, 6 fertilised, 2 made it to day 5 and sent for PGD and both came back as healthy.
This time I'm on Gonal f 400, Luveris 75, Neupogen (as per Braverman's protocol for egg quality) and Orgalutran. This has so far resulted in only 5 good size follicles at day 12.
You can contact Braverman via the below link, he offers a free 15 minute consult. He is based in the US. Alternatively, you can contact Dr Sacks' office and they can provide you info regarding the immune testing.
PM me if you need contact details of Sacks' clinic and want to ask anything about Braverman's fees etc. His consult is US$300 so I'd say make full use of the Skype consult and have specific questions ready for him. He also runs a forum on his website where you can post questions. He is extremely prompt in replying. All the best hun.
We we haven't done a cycle with her yet, just doing the prep and might do a stim cycle next month. I have done one FET however (transfer of one hatching blast) last year using dr m's protocol and had a BFN (just in intralipids, steroids and clexane) but this time he's throwing in a lot more like LIT, Nupogen, intralipids, Dex, clexane etc) so we'll see how it goes. Good luck with your dr m appointment, can't wait to hear how it goes.
I have heard she's a smart lady.. I recall hearing she got the university medal for one of her degrees.. Can I ask, does she believe in half doses of stims every 12 hours like Dr Wazza. He gives you half the dose of stimms in morning and the other half in the evening.. Sounds like a great plan!
Dr Lok did my EPUs twice and 1 transfer when my FS was away..
I'll be joining you with a stimm cycle next month!!!
Thanks so much for the info lovely lady xx
I really hope my embies can grow to day 5. By day 3, most of mine have fragmented by about 10-15%.... Not sure about the odds of them making it to day 5 without fragmenting even more..
Do you have sperm issues? Pingu?
I read that if it fragments on day 3, that's an egg quality issue... I know when cells split they tend to fragment, and I know it's common, but I'm now wondering if it's as common as they say.. Did you grow any of yours to day 5 and notice fragmentation on day 3?
