    Hey, I may not be over 40 but know plenty of friends that have been that age and had Luck with Ivf.When I moved to Tassie and had been trying with no luck for a year I just went to my GP and asked him for a referral to a fertilty specialist,I was told as long as I had been trying to conceive for a year or more I could see a specialist.The internet is great for clinic locations( but don"t bombard your self with to much info it can be a bit scary) Any more questions just ask

    Hi Spiraldancer,

    We were on IVF for 2 and a half years and were lucky enough to get a BFP and a health 9lb 4oz boy born in May this year. I was 39yr 6mths when Declan was born. We still have 3 embryos frozen and I will have them xfered next year (I'm 40 now) but we think we've had our "Lottery Win" and we're just fine with that!

    I hope you are able to find the help you need to get that BFP and a healthy, happy babe in your arms.

    Good luck!

    Smile trying to conceive

    Hi all,

    I am visiting the specialist at Hunter IVF this Friday.

    Am a bit scared...to be expected...it's a new world (IVF).

    Thanks to everyone's threads...it means there is hope.

    Hi littleone1971

    Say hello to the team at Hunter IVF for me! That's our clinic! We had Dr Raymond and Dr Hedges, both sensational! The nurses there are excellent ... I'm sure you won't be scared for long. You couldn't have found a more caring, dedicated team.

    Good luck and keep us posted, I look forward to hearing about your BFP soon!

    lucky 2b mum,

    i have donated to an older recipient for the past 3yrs with no success although i have had alot of success with other women. She is very healthy but we cant seem to get the embryos to stick - was this a problem for you and if so did you do/take anything to assist the embroys sticking?

    Hi pisces00

    It sure was a problem with me!! I tried everything!! We were on the ICSI program because of DH sperm. I have "no fertility problem" but just couldn't fall!! So bl**dy frustrating. I did acupuncture, chinese herbs, gave up smoking, did a detox ... the list goes on!! I had 3 or 4 chemical pregnancies, but that was as close as I got. Eventually my clinic suggested low dose asprin. I took it for 2 cycles, 1 fresh and one frozen. We fell pregnant on the 2nd attempt with a FET. After more that 25 attempts I really think it was the asprin that did the trick. There is plenty of "fors" and "againsts" on the issue, but I'm sure it worked for me.

    I wish you and your recipient all the very best! Please keep trying ... it's so worth it, when it finally works! The joy of having a child in your life ... I have no words to describe it.

    I take my hat off to you and your recipient. I'm so glad you found each other.

    Good luck
