Thanks @Billie2 for introducing me to this group (twice!) and for turning me on this morning with the yummy back/front doors details!! Bahaha you'll never cease to crack me up and I was picturing you half lying down at your desk, trying to keep everything in there.... Oh God the things we do hey! More srsly, hope those pessaries do the trick, BT on Monday seems like an eternity to wait!
Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't been through the hundreds of pages of your 35x threads (Impressive!) but you ladies seem to be a solid bunch of warriors. Billie kept telling me about the quality ppl in this group and the wonderful knowledge sharing (what I'm after).
Although I'm not in my 40's yet, I'm nicely getting there, and have been told in a lovely manner by my FS that I'm responding like a 40+ yo... So? Do I qualify??
I'm not gonna bore you with my journey which is in my signature anyway.
Let's just say I'm a poor responder, never had frosties, going fresh cycle each time with a few eggs to play with. I'm about to embark in a 5th fresh cycle, with no excitement whatsoever.
After a 3rd failed cycle in a row I decided to think outside the box and try new things: I started Dhea 2 months ago and really hope it's gonna show some results... Also wanted to try E2 priming last cycle, but FS said no. Instead she put me on the highest dosage of Puregon, which was completely useless.
I'm seeing her next week to plan imminent next cycle, and will push for E2 priming again.
At this stage, I have nothing to lose and I'm ok to experiment. I understand the risks and accept them.
No point repeating same protocol over and over again imo.
If I learnt one thing about IVF so far, is that FS are not wizards and you gotta educate yourself and help design your own protocol. At least with me and Billie's clinic. Knowledge is power and I'm so keen to learn from you ladies.
If anyone is willing to share anything at all regarding Dhea and/or E2 priming, good or bad, please do so! Those 2 things are my last hope, my backup plan. After that, I have nothing left, no more ideas...
Thanks for reading and wishing everyone a great weekend! X
