    @Caesardust are you able to have the lap without committing to a cycle? The lap may give you a missing link. If not, a lap and dye studies is meant to improve fertility slightly. It may be an idea to do an OE cycle with PGD and transfer a normal shortly after a lap and keep your fingers crossed that everything aligns. Are you going to Richmond this Friday? If so,so am I. I may see you in the waiting room.
    @Charlie74 I am glad your dad is letting you take him to a doctor. After 15 years, he is well and truly overdue for a health check. I hope there is medication to help him and his breathing improves.
    @Chiefsgirl sorry to hear about your colleague. It would be a huge shock and unfortunately that quote "tomorrow isn't promised to anyone" is so true.
    @Tahli I tried to copy and paste your roll call but it wasn't working for me. I am doing an OE cycle next week. At this stage it is doubtful we would be doing donor eggs. With your new donor, I guess you could take it is a guide as to what her twin produces, but I am an identical twin and we couldn't be more different fertility wise.

    No-one should feel guilty about what they are currently eating or what they did 10 years ago. My cousin and her husband are constant drinkers and have absolutely no fertility issues. She only stops when she is pregnant and starts up again as soon as the hub is born.

    @Summer I am so glad the weekend was good for you and it brought your husband and you back together. I can see where he was coming from as my husband said that after each miscarriage, he feels he loses a bit of me.

    I am happy for both of you that you have been able to come to a decision together and are now only a few months away from DE either here or in Capetown.

    i have a question for anyone that has been on dhea. Dr M and not my FS prescribed it for me. He has me on 50mg a day. Is it ok to continue this dose to egg collection, or do you need to reduce it at all?

    @Tahli I forgot to mention I stayed on ubiquinol (coq10) between cycles and right up to bfp. Dr m said something about stopping at bfp cos you don't need it for your lining then.
    @Summer I'm glad you had a great weekend with your dh and felt you reconnected. It's amazing what time away from real life can do with regards to opening up the lines of communication.

    All the talk about diet etc, I have lots of friends that had terrible diets/drank etc and had no issues with fertility so I reckon it's just our old eggs!

    Oh and @Caesardust I totally agree that you don't need to apologize about asking q's and using us as a sounding board. I have found out so much by doing the same thing during this ttc journey. If we didn't have the support and knowledge found in here I probably wouldn't be utd now.

    So thank you everyone for being so open and sharing, it truly does help and means the world xx

    @Summer Congrats on such a romantic and productive weekend! I've sent you a PM.
    @calypso75 I've added you! Agreed, that's why I'll be asking to have her AMH tested. I know it's not a guarantee but hopefully it'll serve as a guide and provide a little bit of reassurance before forking out so much moula!!
    @Chiefsgirl Cool, so I'll stay on the ubiquinol CoQ-10, ta heaps.

    Oh poo really?!! So I should jump back on the 500mgs of Metformin @Bongley?
    Caltrate has the following in it: calcium 600mg, vitamin D3 1000iu, magnesium 50mg, zinc 7.5mg, copper 500mcg, manganese 1.75mg.

    Huh, I must have got the wrong kind of Caltrate, I did wonder why my doc suggested that when its just vitamin D. The bottle I have here specifically says 'does not contain calcium' Thats what I get for ordering online and not speaking to a chemist! Anyway, all a moot point now.

    Personally, yes, I would stay on the metformin as thats what my doc had me on the whole time I was trying to have this second bub. I only weaned off at 10 weeks. It didn't make me sick as a parrot though!

    Sorry @Bongley for the confusion. Mine is 'Caltrate - Bone and Muscle health', so not the straight Caltrate.
    Considering my history of being as 'sick as a parrot' on Metformin (I'm not sure how sick a parrot gets, but my guess is it's as sick as me on 1000mgs) what I might do is compromise. I'll wait and see if my ex is going to release enough funds for me to do my DE cycle. And the moment he does I'll start back on 500mgs. What do you think? Otherwise I could be starting back on it for no reason.
