    Well ladies it was another negative result today unfortunately.

    Now I have to stop taking all my drugs and wait for my period to turn up so I can get on with the next frozen transfer.

    My beautiful partner is absolutely gutted and just can't see that there might just be "light at the end of the tunnel"

    Hi Goldy,

    I'm so sorry this wasn't the one for you and your DH. It is heartbreaking, especially hard to see your partner in pain.

    I so wanted my DH to be a daddy. Wanting that for him got me through some tough times. It is hard to believe, after a BFN, that one day it might actually happen. I guess I logged on tonight, just to tell you and your DH that it can actually happen.

    I hope that after a few days you and your DH will begin to recover from the disappointment of this cycle and get right back up on that damn horse ... and ride the bl**dy thing "Hands and heels" to a BFP.

    *hugs* for now

    I am terribly sad to hear your news.

    I pray your periods return soon and you can get on with your next frozen transfer.

    Take care of yourself at this time Goldy
    You need some girly pampering time.

    Goldy, big to you and your DH it is such a trying time when you get a negative result, I hope AF arrives soon so you ca get going again.

    My AF is MIA, I am waiting to start my next FET cycle and she is no where in sight. It's ironic that when I am cycling AF always comes early now that I want her she has disappeared.

    Hope you all have a good day.

    Hi guys - Just letting you know I had no luck with the triplet embies. FS asked me to do the BT today when I went in to pick up some more medication and it was .

    Not sure what more I need to do to get a BFP. I'm on every drug I know of to help get it. I seriously can't do much more. I think this EPU I have next cycle will be the end of the road for me. After 3 IUI's and 8 embie's transferred - although I'll have one more go myself - it's time to start investigating ED's.

    Goldy - I know how you feel. I also understand how gutted our partners get. Mine is. When told him about the BFN he asked me to put two bottles of wine in the fridge for when he gets home. It's going to be a sad night tonight.

    It's a bit of a different place when they are younger (mine is 10 years younger then I) as I can't help but feel more guilty than ever that my age is a contributing factor to this horrid journey. His best mate has the same low sperm count as my DP does, yet his not yet 30 wife fell pregnant on the first go at ICSI and is now 3 months pregnant. We are so happy for them, but at the same time, it hurts - badly.

    And as for my DP, he has been known for many years by his friends as the one who wants children the most of all and would be such a great dad. And he WILL be. One way or another.

    Mini - The very second I can pull myself out of these blues, I'll throw on the dancing shoes and give you my best AF dance. I'd like mine to turn up on Sunday too, so I'll do a double dance. Should be a sight to behold!

    Thanks everyone for your lovely messages. I am feeling a bit more optimistic today!!!

    Penny, it seems so much harder when you have a much younger partner, as they wouldn't have to go down the IVF road if maternal age wasn't such an issue. My partner is 17 years younger than me, which some people think it is bizarre in itself.

    But no one can predict who they fall in love with can they?

    Anyway for us it's wait for my period and get on with the next FT!!!!!!

    Penny big for you and DP, I know how hard this is for both of you. Be kind to yourselves and hopefully the next one will be the one. Thanks for doing the dance for Af for me if she does visit I will be sure to send her to you.

    Goldy good to see you are more positive and moving forward.

    I have the opposite situation - DH is 10 years older has slow mobility and motility but has 3 kids from his previous marriage, they live with us (mother is a bit of a nutter) so this bubs was for me, to have one of my own. Hopefully it will happen soon.

    Hi Penny, thanks for that info, have now found the thread you mentioned and will have a look at it .

    Update on me:
    My F/S doesnt want to use DHEA as she doesnt think its helpful. She wants me to use testosterone patches, and try gonal F instead of puregon. I am happy to do so for one cycle, but if I still respond poorly I will insist on trying DHEA.

    I need to know I have tried all I can...

    Default Thinking this is not the thread for me now...

    I just wanted to write this thread because I know there was nothing like it when I was considering IVF. I did a lot of research and all the statistics basically told me to give up or that I would need donated eggs or sperm etc etc etc.

    I am 43 years old. My husband is 46. We married in February 09 and neither of us were already blessed with children. We decided pretty quickly that kids were something we wanted to try and have. Nothing happened after a few months of trying. Off we went to see a fertility specialist. Despite the pretty bad stats we were given there as well, we decided to give IVF a go.

    Our only real issue was my age. But...first cycle, 8 eggs were harvested, 3 fertilised and all 3 transferred. Then to our amazement, I got a positive pregnancy test. I am now almost 10 weeks pregnant and despite a few little humps, all is going well, no morning sickness to speak of, hardly anything else. We know that there is still some way before we finally have our baby but if we hadn't tried, we wouldn't even have got this far.

    I will be 44 when I deliver. It's a miracle.

    For anyone over 40 considering IVF, you have to give it a go. You just don't know what will happen if you try and you will regret it forever if you don't try.

    Good luck.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy LuckyAPA. I trust that you are feeling on top of the world; again congrats you are indeed Lucky and it is indeed a miracle, no less.

    Forget the rest - I put it in the too hard basket days ago - shame you couldn't also.
