So exciting for you xxx
Charlie74 sorry for the delay in replying. Given your egg numbers I'd still be very hopeful. At QFG their stats indicate that the big drop happens at 43 and I was freaking out about approaching 43, but we kept getting better quality embryos once we moved to Wazza even though I was about to turn 43. We would have kept going with stim cycles until we saw a decrease in egg/embryo quality. Wazza and I discussed our options numerous times and whilst he suggested DE, he also conceded that given my good egg numbers we were still in with a chance with OE. He also pointed out that whilst my eggs would have been better at 16, there is no set date that the 43 decline happens - it's not your birthday! I also wonder how many cycles some of the older girls do - on the QFG forum, a lot seem to baulk at more than 2 or 3, where current research is suggesting 9 as the give up number of stim cycles.
Do you just want the one kiddie? It took three PGD normals (admittedly 2 of very average grading) for us to get a BFP. If you want more than one, then embryo banking might be an option? I'll be 43.5 when our little one is born and we want to focus on him, not jump straight back into IVF, so it looks like he'll be it. As you've probably read, Wazza's cycles are tougher going than a lot of FSs. I breezed through cycles with FS#1, but needed to reduce workload with Wazza, particularly with back-to-backs and risk of OHSS. How much FSH did LB have you on? Wazza typically seems to use 450-600.
With the growth hormones it is SciTropin, which is another injectable. So you usually would take DHEA until you commence your cycle and then SciTropin I think from CD6. SciTropin is only 0.5ml and the vial has just over 3 doses. After my last stim cycle I priced it through my local chemist and it would have been $50- cheaper/vial, so if we'd done another cycle I'd have asked Wazza for a script. I'm not sure which chemist Wazza gets it from, but generally find chemists on Wickham Terrace more expensive than in the suburbs.
September is not far away now. I hope your mood has improved and you are enjoying your holiday again.
@mrsparso congratulations!!! So exciting!!!

Rosie8888 your scripts might be at The Wesley Pharmacy. If you were given a bag at the day hospital, they are usually provided by the Wesley and they hold onto the repeat scripts. If you ring them, they'll post them out. They are also open long hours - 7 days, so you can get the medications from them.
