    Hi Girls, saw my FS last week. As expected he brought up egg donation.Of course I was shattered. Not ready to go there yet though, so he is adding clomid to this cycle. Not really expecting it to make much of a difference though. Just hoping the DHEA had made a difference. I have been on it for 8 weeks now. ATM I am waiting for my period to start and then I start the pill on day 2. Period is MIA though. Haven't had a period since mid May, after my first cycle was cancelled. Stopped taking the meds, 18 th June after another cancelled cycle and my AF still hasn't arrived. Very frustrated.
    If this cycle produces some good follicles but I fail to fall pregnant, I will take HGH for my next cycle. At an extra cost of 2500, I don't want to take it if I am not producing any eggs.
    the DHEA works. I think it is my last chance.

    How is everyone going? And to all those considering egg donation, I may be joining you too soon.
    to everyone.

    deb11 - It is so frustrating when AF is missing in action. I am thinking of you - remember everyweek that AF is missing is allowing the DHEA to run its magic

    It has been a while since I have visited these pages. It is almost a year since our last IVF attempt (that last one was with my sister as a donor). I dont think a day has gone by where I havent thought about it, but not much we can do as we are now waiting and hoping that we can find donor embies or reach the top of our clinics list for these.
    I see there are some people considering donors again. Our donor cycle cost about $10, 000 and was able to happen within a couple of months as my sister agreed to be our donor. If you are considering using a donor, the Aussie Egg Donor website is good for getting information and support.
    I was rather hoping to win a portion of the 30mil lottery tonight so that we could cycle again. We have not quite finished paying off our previous cycles, but should finally do that when the tax man refunds from last years medical expenses.

    mammalinz.......how are you going? How many weeks are you now?

    My AF has finally arrived. On the contraceptive pill now for three weeks then I start cycling again. Will have been on DHEA for about 10 weeks by then. Really praying it makes a difference. Third time lucky

    to everyone. This thread has been really quite lately.

    Hi esrp, try and stay positive, you really do only need one egg. My acunpunturist said it's usually the stronger egg that makes it to the finishing line so don't get down hearted. I had a day 5 transfer on both of my cycles (we've just finished the second), having got over 15 eggs on both occasions, around 10 fertilised but by day 5 on both we only had one for implantation, no frosties. It makes sense that if you only have one fertilised to get it into a natural environment as quickly as possible, no point in leaving it hanging around in a dish when it could be hanging around your uterus looking for a comfy spot! ;o)

    I have to say the first cycle was the most fraught for me because of course you desperately want and dream it will work so all your energies go into it. Second time I forced my focus on everything other than IVF, with the exception of taking the meds on time I pretty much tried to ignore it. The good news is that I am 5weeks and 2 days pregnant today . It's such early days and I have to tell you the fraughtness doesn't end with a positive result, now we have to wait until Wednesday when we have a scan to make sure it's where it should be, ie. not ectopic, and then we have to wait another 2 months to get the all clear .... it's never ending!! So, my advice to you is (and you will possibly want to punch me in the face for this) do everything you can to occupy yourself, start a book, a project, a business, ANYTHING, because thinking about it over and over will not help in any way shape or form, tough as it is to stop yourself. You have to try to live as normal a life as possible in the meantime in hope for that little reward for your patience at the end. So, do you want to punch me in the face?!! ;o)

    Wishing you all the baby dust and luck in the world. By the way, we were in a similar situation to you, my hubby was the 'challenged' one, they did HA-ICSI the second time.

    ALSO, to add to my advice - I waited until the day before the blood test to do a home test so I was prepared the next day for the result. The home test was negative, we were devastated, dealt with our grief, talking about how to move forward, then the next afternoon the nurse called and said I'm up the duff, what a shock!!

    Keep the faith

    lizzie... great news...congrats to you

    I just want to say to everyone keep up hope...I know that its hard... but the prize is really truely better than winning lotto.... and you think you spend a lot on IVF ...wait until you get free reign in baby stores...lol...lol....

    I have finally got AF back... last one was 14months ago... it was sooooooo good not having it... but now it means that I only have 3 months before I do my fet...eeek...planning for around the beginning of november... so Im back to stuffing my face with vitamins..well when I remember and taking my DHEA again..
    will do a day 3 blood test next AF to check my fsh.. sort of dreading that a bit as I will be nearly 43yr then...eeek...where did all the years go after my 40th...
    Now I just have to hope that my frosties all make it to thaw... at least I have 6 to cheer on.... but I really want my little group of 3 from the last cycle to work so arabella has a donor matched sibling.... although I think from memory it was an 8 cell and some?5cells they froze... I will have to wait and ask the doc which ones they did......

    thinking and reading everyday....

    Hi everyone – I’m sorry I’ve been AWOL from BH these last few weeks, and I want to thank you all for your love and support, both in the forum and PMs. I’m sorry I haven’t replied sooner, I hope you’ll understand. I’m still grieving my loss of hope that I will have my own children. I can't quite believe it. In six short months I've gone from being told "you won't have any trouble getting pregnant" to "you're probably going through menopause."

    I think I need more time to deal with it all, although other things have been getting in the way. First there was the bad news, then I had a short holiday, got sick, ended up in hospital last week and this week I started a new job. Plus my mother is having cancer treatment and suffering badly from the side effects. Needless to say I have been feeling totally overwhelmed and am no closer to thinking about a next step for me (ED) but I may get there.

    I have been lurking occasionally and checking how everyone is – to those having good times and to those who aren’t. I will try to check back again soon.

    and to all.
