Sometimes with these protocols they forget about LH or the stims over supply LH which has a deleterious effect on egg quality.. Perhaps it was just the protocol..
I'm 40.. So not looking good for me either.. But we'll see.. I know a few girls who got preggers on their first go and they were 39... I dunno.. We're all different I guess..
@Mongol sorry to hear your news, it is never easy. Out of interest have you read the better baby book by Lana Asprey? She is a US doctor who has written about improving 'genetics' and egg quality using diet and supplements. Her husband is the creator of the bulletproof diet. It is all very interesting. I have been following the protocol for other reasons and have noticed very positive outcomes. I do hope you get some answers soon xx
AFM I had my first scan today and second bloods. Bloods are all good but I have ended up with 6 follicles thanks to Clomid so levels are not where they need to be for trigger just yet. My lining is 6mm which is a bit low but fingers crossed the vitamin E and viagra keep doing their thing. I have blood test and scan again Friday
@Mongol I'm so sorry it your cycle ended like this, that totally sucks! I hope your next move is the right one & you end up with your BFP X
My transfer is booked for 12:45 Perth time tomorrow... Nervous & excited!
I was given Luveris this time when I enquired my FS about it. Now I'm thinking I probably didn't need it as my FS didn't monitor my LH levels prior to prescribing Luveris. There are plenty of success stories of women 40 and over. But I know what you mean. A cousin of mine got pregnant at 43 and it was a surprise. She cruised through her pregnancy it happens easily for some people, we just have to hang in there!
Pregnant for the first-time?
