@skeeter, massive congrats to you hon xxx
Grace1, not much explanation.
She was actually happy that we had one embryo making it to perfect blast while I was scratching my head about fertilization rate...
I m doing antagonist Menopur/ Cetrotide.
When are u starting stimming? Do you have a new protocol? X
It does! And yes, that's what my last FS prescribed too. Which is why I kind of want to take my course of AB's once AF arrives tomorrow or the day after (don't want to delay her arrival!) and then start the Pred once I'm done with them. I would still be starting the Pred at least a week prior to EPU...
so sorry to hear, @Sue77. that's a rough time you've gone through.
we decided on trying DE when the last of my OE didn't work and I'd passed 45 age limit so the clinics wouldn't let me cycle any more with OE. I'd been thinking about it in the back of my mind for a while - it took a while to sit right in my head. mostly after some research into epigenetics. good luck with your decision. perhaps taking a break to reset/regroup might help things clear for you a bit more
@Sue77 oh my your story is so heart breaking. To get so close. You must be exhausted. Your courage gives me inspiration. Im not sure if i am at DE yet but im getting there fast as tbh i just cant ride the low % of success roller coaster any more. Also ive always believed in nurture vs nature. Good luck and
@Sue77 big hugs hun xxx we are about to head down the de path. For me in particular cost and quality of embies was a big factor. Im a low responder hubby has severe mfi im 41 we dont get many embies. Ive recently had mc at 9 weeks prob due to poor quality embie. Ive also been there about a year ago with having no hb at the scan it is devestating. That also happened at our recent 9 week scan after the 7 week scan was perfect. We have a bio daughter who yook 6 stim cycles to fonceive. For us moving to de is the best way forward. Epigenetics is an amazing thing. I think you need to be ready in ourselves to do that. All the best xxx
