pingc383, Im 35, nearly 36. My AMH was 2.9 but I had only been off the pill for 2 months, so the second AMH test was 5.3. I was so devastated at the 2.9 because I'd gone in with IUI as my 'plan'....then the FS was talking about donor embroys...I cried the whole way home.
My first IVF I had 5 eggs, 2 fertilised but only 1 made it to day 3 for ET. I had a lot of eggs over 22 size at my last scan, so I think a few were lost before ER. FS also realised my LH had stayed at 1 the whole cycle....so another needle was added to my treatment. Then it was ICSI, 10 eggs, only 5 were mature and 3 fertilised but only 2 made it to day 3 for ET and a frostie. So now Im waiting for my period to start for a natural cycle to FET. And they have taken me off the horrid crinone and onto the pessaries- I'm hoping to have less symptoms this time.
Good luck with Dr M and a new FS. Have they offered you a endo scratch, its meant to increase your odds to 50-70%! My FS will only do it after 3 BFN's!
My FS is hopeless with older women. She hasn't suggested donor embryos with me, but she does keep suggesting I might have a "bad batch" of eggs... She keeps compromising the dominant follicle, and I have no doubt the dominant follicle holds the best quality egg.
Don't waste your time with an FS whose first suggestion us donor embryos. I would be looking for another FS!!!
Also, unless your AMH is <0.1 (and even then I've heard of successful pregnancies being had), you shouldn't be worried. You'd AMH is fine. Mine was low, but still fine. You only need one good egg.
I have the same problem with my LH dropping to below 1, but I am supplemented with luveris when that happens. Where abouts are you located? You may have to call Dr Wazza and get yourself on his cancellation list! I hear he's the case, but he's located in Qld.
From all my readings, it's very much the protocol they use and if they get that wrong, a lot of the eggs are likely to be immature or bad...
Hopefully my new FS will offer me the endo scratch. My current one did not believe in any of those things!!!!
Hang in there babe.. I promise you they will get that good quality egg, but you may have to try another FS if the one you're seeing now just keeps using the same protocol each and every time like my FS!!
Hi ladies I did a POAS this morning and it's def lighter than my 13dpo one so I think today's bloods will just confirm what I already suspected.
Oh no nattie! Xx
