@Tahli highly recommend the pub 2 doors down from Wazza's rooms as well. 🍻 you will need a drink after meeting him if times of the essence I suggest shots.
I'm trying to post photo of my kookaburra bub but bub hubs been unfriendly will see how it goes. ..
Its doing the same for me on my app @BIB hence the triple post I was too impatient 😄
Thanks everyone for the support some real promising results there to keep trying with OE. @Gagingi that's excellent well done I'm also closing in on 43 so there is still hope. @greenlady & BlondeinBrisVegas also good to hear, it's just finding that golden egg and sperm combination.
Midnite01 looks like we are 2ww buddies both with 2day embies. @gorgeousgeirge thanks for the donor info, if all else fails (well let's face it I'm up against some crazy odds) this could be the way to go, I have toyed with the idea before and am actually on a wait list for an Adopt an Embryo for a back up plan but there is a wait and I may just feel too old when my number comes up. I'm probably not up for the effort and possible failure of an OS adventure to pick my own. I have very much enjoyed your humour reading up previous posts, you sound like one funny chick.
- @LillyM This is the AACEP Protocol I was on for Cycles 4/5 with Wazza. In this protocol my FSH was lower than in Cycle 4 (my choice) and I also opted to use Puregon in combination with the Menopur as well. I'm not sure if you know about the AACEP Protocol as it's different to just doing the Estrogen Priming part of it???
Here's a link to an article that Wazza gave me to read about it and there's also some great info on Dr Geoffrey Sher's website too:
Click on the link and scroll down to the "In vitro fertilisation" section and click on this article:
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist/antagonist conversion with estrogen priming in low responders with prior in vitro fertilization failure
Day 1..Call FN to confirm dates for treatment
Day 4: Commence active pill and take continuously for 16 days
Day 11: Commence Lucrin injection- 1 unit per day, Commence Prednisone- 2 per day in the morning and keep taking every day
Day 19: Cease active pill..last one today and expect AF 3-4 days later (could be up to a week for some women) If having an Endo scratch and Lipoidal Flush (or just the Endo scratch), get it done on Day 21/22. Still continue with Lucrin and Prednisone.
Wait for AF and begin Stimulation Cycle:
Day 1: Call FN and make appointments for Day 2/8/11 (BT's and scan's). continue Lucrin and Prednisone
Day 2: Scan/BT's..Start Progynova (if doing estrogen priming), FSH injections (alternating one day with Gonal-F/Puregon, the next Menopur at whatever amount your FS wants you to take), start using Nitrodur patch (to widen blood vessels for better blood flow to ovaries, uterus etc), Commence 3mg injections of Saizen (if using) from today until day of Trigger
Day 3: Commence Clexane 40mg's 1xinjection per day, continue Progynova, FSH, Nitrodur Patch, Lucrin and Prednisone
Day 4: Cease Lucrin (last injection today) and continue on with the rest
Day 5: Continue on with the rest as per Day 3 (except Lucrin)
Day 6: Commence Cetrtotide or Orgalutran (I always used Cetrotide) today at 9pm..1/2 injection today only and all the rest as above
Day 7: Continue Cetrotide injection..1/2 an injection at 9pm and all the rest as above
Day8: Continue Cetrotide..1 full injection today at 9pm and from now on until Trigger. Continue with all the rest as above and commence Luveris injections daily as directed by your FS (I never used the Luveris as my LH levels were ok, so it may be dependant on your LH levels if you use it or not)
Day 9: Continue everything as per Day 8
Day10/11: Continue everything as above until Trigger, but cease Clexane 2 days prior to EPU.
What dosage of FSH will be what works for you and your ovaries Luv but for me a lower dose was what worked best
Hope this helps

Just caught up on a week and phew it's been a roller coaster. @Billie2 it sounds like things are on the improve thank goodness. I was holding my breath for so long.
Welcome to our newbies. I'm 38 but with dud eggs, done 4 stims with oe and 7 transfers so have been reassured I fit in as a warrior woman here on the thread. This place is a godsend and I look forward to hearing everyone's news whether good, bad or ugly (in the case of bottom weeing and pessaries up the back door). The support here is what's missing in the real world out there. Xoxo
3 weeks until Cape Town. No confirmation from dhs that super can be released still which is very worrying. On a positive note I'm not getting too ragey on the ridiculous amount of meds.
For de ladies did you get an update on when the donor started stimming?
