Hi Riss, welcome to the thread! I'm so sorry you've gone through so much! I really don't have the answer why some of us have to endure so much. I find it harder and harder to pick up from each cycle. I only now feel I'm back to being myself after a failed one in December... I really hope this year will be ours and that we will finally get that illusive BFP with a baby at the end. I've downloaded a few of the books Beta suggested and will email you. I've done a lot of reading and research over the years and tried quite a few different treatments. I'm quite passionate about IVF and would be more than happy to share what I've learned so far in hope that I can save someone going through yet another cycle.
When are you planning cycling again?

Riss, I can't PM you, can you try and PM me? I think you need 10 posts or something to receive private emails.

I feel exactly the same after each cycle. I am planning on starting end of next month when AF arrives. I was hoping to start this month but after a hysteroscopy and D & C a week ago it brought it on a little early. But what's another month ay!
I still have to meet my new nurse at Monash and discuss my protocol. I am excited about trying something new. Just hope the results gets me over the line. I have tried every new and different treatment there is: naturopathy, homeopathy, acupuncture, fengshui, chinese medicine, healing, meditation hehe the list goes on. If you could email me that stuff it would be great. I have no idea how to PM someone this is all new for me. If you can tell me where to go I will try.

OMG, I've also tried fengshui (had a lady come to my house), TCM, meditation, relaxation, holidaying, changed the job, cut out alcohol, coffee, processed food.... Reading other posts I didn't think there could be anyone out there going through the same thing as me. Even for the LTWW doing 6 cycles seems a bit much, but we'll get there, hang in there.
I've taken a 3 month break,(that's how long the eggs meant to mature) to compose myself back, doing TCM, some exercise and completely cut out coffee and alcohol. I am yet to see whether it will have any impact on IVF outcome.
I gather you're same age as me, which means that our age is definitely on our side. My opinion is that as long as you produce eggs and the partner has swimmers, have the uterus and lining ok, this thing has to work with a help of someone that know their stuff.
I really do hope Lynn will be our light at the end of the tunnel. I plan to cycle late March/early April as well pending when AF show up.
I was told to rest for minimum 2 month after hysteroscopy, that is if there was anything cut out. I think you've made a good decision to give it another month.
A few more posts from your side, then we can send PMs...

Haha well here comes post number 4.
They say age is on our side but I feel like I am getting olddddd!!! I have gotten to the point where I don't like celebrating them anymore. It's just another reminder that another year of TTC has come and gone and I am not a mother yet! Booooo to birthdays! hehe
Thats funny you did the feng shui too. I had the lady come to my house last week so I am going to be implementing all the stuff she said to do...she cost a fortune, so I should do what she says otherwise it's a big fat waste of money! I have actually taken long service leave from work this year. After the MC last year and all the appointments, work was just adding to my stress levels.
For this month before I start I am going to try and cut wheat, caffeine and lose a few more kilos its hard with PCOS and now I have an under-active thyroid! Arghhhh Oh well...it is all for a good cause and when we have our babies, all this stuff will all be forgotten.
I'm sorry I am not up with all the abbreviations but what is TCM??

I didn't know what to expect from feng shui and actually didn't mind it. Probably cause I liked the lady that came to my house. She charged me $300, spent just about all day with me and we chatted about everything and anything. I spent quite a few $$$ shopping for items she suggested. I was surprised to see all these feng shui items in the Chinese shops, which I never new before what they were for other than looking pretty for some. I still have her notes on the walls I did get pregnant after her visit but later miscarried), which was quite interesting. Guess I'll never know whether it had anything to do with it or it was just a coincidence.
Hmmm, I agree about Birthdays, they are getting harder to get excited about with each year we are still TCC. I've never had a deadline for when I wanted to have a baby, but have also never thought that at 34 I would still TCC, battling infertility. I've always wanted to be a reasonable young mum and I truly hope, Lynn will do her magic and make that dream come true.
I've sent you a PM
TCM stands for traditional chines medicine

How are you doing? Has your cycle started yet?
I went to Monash this week, got a registration form and booked a counseling appointment. I was surprised to see how quiet their rooms (in Hawthorn) were compared to MIVF. Seeing that, MIVF indeed looks like a production line.
