    Understood...the only question would be adequate dosage of mainly the Prednisone IMO.

    Some of the other Lovelies more experienced in NKC's and Clotting Disorders will hopefully chime in when they can with their thoughts

    I hear you Luv and you too @Blossom74

    When the Ex and I were Cycling, my eldest sister loaned us a portion of the upfront $ to Cycle (basically all of the Medicare refunds for everything plus an extra couple of thousand) and we'd save all of the OOP costs for everything plus the shortfall to give back to my sister. When we'd get the Medicare refund, we'd give it back to her + the shortfall I had stashed away. Then we'd save up again and when we were ready to Cycle again, she'd loan us the $ again and off we'd go all over again and again and again.

    Without her help there's no way we could've kept Cycling. My Papa also donated a few grand into the IVF Kitty to get us started on our first Cycle, God Bless him

I did get about $300 or so back.
    Good point Luv, totally forgot about the Intrallipids and the Dex which is stronger too

    Money wise, there is no way we could afford an extra $1000 for a test. We are making some big changes our way ATM so I think my FS will just have to do the best he can with what he's got, lol.

    I can't afford intralipids, it's as simple of that. There will have to be another way. Anyway, it's a mute point - I may not need them yet. All of this will be raised with our next cycle though.

    That does help @Maxwellsmum! Fish Oil I can do. In fact, I saw it at the chemist the other day, a gazillion tablets for $20. Shall drop in there today!

    I watched the show but tried to stay away from the comments. those in my twitter feed weren't too bad. I thought it was a bit one sided. I don't think all the clinics behave as they described. we were told the very low % success rates regularly and haven't been pushed to take the extra meds/treatments. I was sad for the women speaking - one was pretty angry and bitter (& I'd pre-ordered her book a couple of weeks ago but now I don't think I want to read it). they did show one younger couple going through ivf - at first I thought it was going to be purely 35+. I thought they could have mentioned donors too.

    @winsor i totally agree. I was hoping the young kids were donor egg kids from her sister! It was pretty sad. I have always had upfront specialists who told me all the time about my chances. I wonder if some women just don't want to hear it? I can understand that, too. Maybe I've been lucky with my specialists being straight forward??? I'm also assertive too, maybe that helps?? It's too easy to sit back and judge these ladies. I'm glad I haven't seen anything on Facebook or whatever. There would be a lot of insensitive assumptions that I'd rather not know about!!

    I haven't seen the whole thing yet, just the first ten minutes but I'd agree. It was very upsetting to see those poor couples so distressed and financially wrung out. It's a shame egg donation didn't get a mention for the older couples watching and perhaps considering IVF.
