Hey there , I'm 38 years old. We're doing our 2nd ICSI cycle in May/June. I'm looking for some buddies to cycle with as it can be pretty lonely in IVF land. Anyone else cycling then? I'd love some companyon our journey to a BFP.
All JUNE cyclers welcome too!!!

Morning!!! We've never done a cycle before! This is our first go! My dh's swimmers don't have the hard helmet bit so they couldn't get into my eggs even is they managed to find them! We have our consent appointment today and learning our drugs and stuff next week then I have to wait for af in April to get going but I'm right at the start of my cycle now so we won't be going till mid to late April yay cycle buddies

Hi ladies I am cycling in may too. We have pcos and azoospermia as well. Fortunate enough to have conceived dd on our first cycle in oct 09, since then had a failed thaw FET in June 11, failed picsi in Jan 12. Praying that May 12 will bring dd a much wanted sibling, but we are starting to come to terms with her being an only child.

Ally; so this is your 1st cycle. I imagine at the moment you're feeling super nervous/excited. Let us know if you have any questions etc, it can be pretty overwhelming 1st time round. Good luck with ypur appt, must be great to know that next AF you can start to try for your BFPDarn those swimmers not working properly. Will be great to cycle with you!
Hi Nicole! What are the odds of finding another azoo wife to cycle with in May? How much does azoo suck? So sorry that you have had the failed cycles. I think that phonecall to say it was a negative result was one of the toughest IVF days so far.Congrats on your DD though, that gives me hope. We can support you on your journey for a sibling for your little one. You have one miracle, another is possible. Look forward to sharing your journey.
BTW, I'm in Sydney, where are you girls?

I am in Brisbane and my FS is the infamous wazza
The azoo sure does suck but our last cycle failed due to my eggs. I had such terrible results after epu with 7 out of 12 being immature and quality with the rest was also an issue. So I've been on dhea, royal jelly, coq10, vits b,c and e plus fish oil. Really hoping this all makes a difference! Plus I hope to stim longer and maybe use a few difference drugs/protocol. I meet with FS on 17 April to plan this cycle.

Ally, how did your appt go today?
Nicole, that must have been so disappointing for you. The scary thing about IVF is that one cycle can go so well, without a hitch & then the next not so well. I'm trying to prepare DH for the fact that just because we had a great 1st cycle, does not mean that everything will go according to plan this time round.I hope you don't mind me asking but I noticed you on another thread about improving sperm quality. Did your FS put your DH on that regime, or another Dr? We're with Derek Lok at Genea (previously Sydney IVF) and he's great, but so far has not put DH on anything. I have him on spermax & a good multi, but our FS seemed cynical that it would help. My DH has a type of Sertoli Cell Only Syndrome, but does produce a very small amount of mature sperm in the testes ( they found about 17 at the 1st TESE, but they all died upon defrost), but they dont get out.
Lovely to have some cycle buddies!

Yes our FS is a strong believer in supplements and it did absolute wonders for us. Dh's low sperm is unexplained, but on first sample we had none. Literally none. Then we put him on the supps for 3 months and the scientist actually sat down with us and asked us to freeze them. He had 100,000 and one of those little miracles was our dd! So here is the supps:
Gojo berries (very high antioxidant)
Pumpkin seeds (zinc)
Aloe juice (again, vh antioxidant)
Zinc tablet or menevit (our choice instead on plain zinc tablet)

Not good saw a different doctor from last time and she said I have to lose 20kgs so I have called my original doctor who said he'd look at my file again but now I don't know when I'll start ivf :.(
