    sorry for for my absence, have had a tough few days - so needed to stay away from bh...got the official bfn as expected... And managed to get a quick appointment with Fs..

    so I had 1/7 fertilise this time (usually we get 50%), Fs said it's because the eggs were 'soft' this time and that its age related.. I've googled this and can only find 2 stories about this & neither women were over 40.. Anybody else been told they have soft eggs since it's apparently an over 40's thing? It's just strange I can't find any info about it. Any thoughts/experience to share would be greatly appreciated.

    2 months ago my eggs weren't soft and I got bfp but later m/c. She thinks the quality may have declined in this time frame. (I'm 42 btw). I was put on a different protocol this time (flare - puregon and synarel from day 2) but she says this has nothing to do with the quality or soft eggs.

    She wasn't very hopeful about our chances moving forward which we found odd after only 2 cycles. Regardless we are trying another antagonist cycle in October for project sibling (as this worked the first time). Anyway feeling pretty sad about it tbh, wasn't expecting her to throw in the towel so quickly I guess. Anyone else have any similar experiences?
    @Grace1 - my FS was not keen on me doing anymore than 2 cycles once I'd done two cycles and got no normal embryos on PGD testing. I did a third which again produced no normal embryos. He reluctantly let me do a fourth and final cycle which produced my only normal embryo and BFP. He said the only reason he supported me doing it was because me egg numbers were high and so the chance of the roulette wheel landing on my number was higher than someone who retrieved 2 or 3 eggs. All my cycles were antagonist and all done while I was 42. I guess at our age the FS tend to throw the towel in quickly as they know how hard it is to get that golden egg. I believe that protocol affects egg quality ( as our friend Dr Sher from Las Vegas often talks about) so I think it's worth you trying an antagonist cycle. My last and successful cycle was Gonal f plus luveris which I hadn't used on the previous three cycles ( menopur only for two and Gonal f only for one).

    @Blossom74 - progress and a plan! That's great for you.
    @calypso75 - sorry to hear it's the end of your journey. Such a hard decision to know when you've had enough.

    I was thinking of you when I read @Grace1's post @Green lady. From my swiss cheese memory I was thinking it took you about 70 eggs to find your golden one? I remember being in absolute awe of your numbers. How humbling it was when I got my two or three Still, you got there in the end and I very much admire your tenacity and your refusal to give up. You got your golden egg in the end, and this bubba is testament to all your hard work

    So pm me or @Maxwellsmum if u want to enter the safe house
    @Maxwellsmum & I will have the password and directions on how to find the thread.
    Ow wow, what an honor! I would like the safe house password at some point please. I am in a relatively positive place but I do have extreme anxiety issues I would like to unload at some point. Hopefully the safe house might accept me on that? Thanks for all your hard work @Charlie74 and @Maxwellsmum

    @calypso75 I feel so incredibly sad reading your post, esp after meeting you. You're very brave drawing the line. Thank you so much for offering to help me when I was in hospital having my hernia surgery too. You're a gold star beautifully kind woman. Massive, massive hugs, xxxxxxxxxxxxx.

    @calypso75 hi, we havent spoken personally before but i just wanted to let you know that i care and im sorry this difficult decision had to be made. I remembered asking a friend once about how to tell when i should give up. She said i wouldnt need to work it out- that i would know because i would feel it. (If that makes sense). I think she was right. When it hurts more to continue than to just stop. Big hugs and be kind to yourself xox
