    @Blossom74 If you were in Sydney Id send DH over, he is a mechanic. Ever thought about 'go fund me' or something similar? I cant think of the website. Ive seen couples fundraising for IVF on there. Id donate. Anyone affected by IF would. Its not just the primary issue of infertility, there's secondary, the $'s, our health, losing friends.. xx

    Morning ladies!
    Once again, my brain is ticking.

    Who has used DHEA and thinks it works for egg quality?

    Did it work?
    I have taken Melatonin since February and honestly I think it makes no difference however it makes me sleep really well!!! I love that aspect of it!!!!
    I have some DHEA here, took it for about 3 wks (yeah i know meant to be 3 months to see a change) and am considering taking it again but for the 12 weeks.

    @Tinachris I took it and had 2 worst cycles after it, I also took saizen- human growth hormone on one of those cycles ($2000) and then had nothing to transfer. Some people swear by it, my FS at the time said it works for about a quarter of women, and who's to know if it was part of the negative effect on me but it's my experience with it. I think the thing is that if any of those things (melatonin etc) worked for everyone they would know by now and everyone would be prescribing them. My FS thought the only thing with real merit was coq10. But even that didn't work for me!

    @Charlie74 yes they can find blonde and blue eyed ladies pretty easily. There are lots of them in greece to and greece is very multiculturallike australia. Maybe if you were like 6 foot tall nordic, like finnish icelandic really white blonde it might take a little longer. But im sure ive read other ladies saying they can. I know in italy and malta certain regions have large populations of blonde blue eyes ladies, i think greece is the same. :-)

    @Tinachris My 3rd round the changes were CoQ10 as @tuxcat mentioned ($10 at chemist), and the Luveris. That is all that I can contribute to getting a blasty and frosties. Had neither before this round. Ive heard the DHEA has some hell side effects, but none of that would bother me if it was new hope. My FS told me that nothing can help egg quality but prescribed Luveris anyway. Any changes made always provides new hope & energy.

    I see a few have Mediterranean skin envy on this site ! I believe the donors available are from all over Europe not just Greece so the net is cast very widely for Iakentro which appealed to us .

    My husband was not too keen on SA , CT either @gorgeousgeorge . even Lynn b our FS in Aust spoke highly of their quality of service in SA . We both agreed Greece was way more fun for us ... & it did not disappoint .
    @Bradders although I am of Italian descent when in Italy people think I'm Spanish as my hair is so dark . My husband who is very fair & lean , is taken for an Italian go figure . what he wears might be a bit euro eg polo tops , boat shoes etc . He spends his life on the water ( hiding from the Sun of course with white zinc cream covering his face )

    You should see the expression on his face when the Italians speak to him .

    @Blondeinbrisvegas I too have the image in my head of @gorgeousgeorges principal .

    Too funny ladies .

    I took it for 4 months before my last cycle. Did not make a scrap of difference. If anything, it was one of my less successful cycles.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your support. The car is now at the garage after being towed last night and they are conducting an assessment on it as we speak. The Husband is now away for a couple of days for work (travelling with his boss, thank God) so it's up to me to visit the car yard and find out what's wrong, how long it will take to fix, and how much it will cost. The main suspect ATM is the fuel pump, which to replace would cost us about $1,200 plus labour. We don't have that sort of money, especially after having the vet bills last week. The only place I can pull it from is the IVF fund. I can't remember who said it, but it sucks that life should come down to having a baby or.....

    Working from home today and for the rest of the week. Not much else newsworthy happening. Feeling a bit sad and overwhelmed TBH. I feel like we have been under so much stress and so much financial strain for so long now and the light at the end of the tunnel just gets further away each day.

    Good morning everyone
    @TINAChis but still hoping for you!

    @Lucky8 praying for your BFP

    @tuxcat so great your DH is positive - I find that helps me so much too!

    @MissDa - praying you have a response from your ad very soon!

    @midnite01 I do hope you get an unexpected amazing result on Thursday.

    @Blossom74 how annoying - stupid car! It is so unfair that $ adds additional stress to an already crazy journey! I hope it's not the $1200 bill you expect!!

    @gorgeousgeorge wow - you would be an amazing teacher to have! Such passion for your calling! Lovely to hear that!!!

    Thinking of you all ladies -

    @Lucky8 - Hope you get over the jet lag quickly and are able to find someone to check your progesterone levels.
    @Tinachris - Oh no hun this cycle was not supposed to work out this way I want to scream for you, hoping the spotting is implantation and you get a late bfp.
    @gorgeousgeorge - Your posts have just had me cracking up haha! You sound like a great teacher too who loves her job, hoping you get a bfp soon off your donor cycle and can add to your 100 9am - 3pm kiddies.
    @tuxcat - Fantastic way to start your cycle with a few wines as celebration. Great that your DH is feeling so positive too x
    @Billie2 - wow how amazing thst your parents have a vineyard. That would be oh so tempting for my DH though I would have to drag him away, he loves his red wine.
    @midnite01 - Good luck for Thursday's EPU hun. Its good thst you have a back up plan in place but who knows this might just be your lucky cycle.
    @Blossom74 - Oh no hun how frustrating for that to happen with DH's car now, typical bloody timing. Hope you can sort something out.
    @Charlie74 - I think you deserved a few drinks on holiday hun, kick back and enjoy! Yes I am the same hun out myself through hell watching and reading stuff that makes me emotional.

    AFM - Thanks for the well wishes on my lining, its all about celebrating the small steps haha! I started my injections yesterday with the puregon and did my first menapur today. Definately prefer the pen injection of the puregon I was stressing so much over getting the dose just right.
