Miffy it most definately is such a hard decision, I have a beautiful DS to IVF & would have loved to have given him a sibling however after 7 Stimson & 3 FETS I have given up, I can't say I'm totally at ease with the decision but I do enjoy the freedom of not going through the roller coaster ride.

Same sort of age as you, and so far after lots of 'perfect' embryos nothing has stuck. My last 2 frosties go back in soon.
I have tried every drug known and had all the procedures to check the oven. I now accept that if these 2 don't take then IVF with my eggs is over.
However I am not willing to give up, I want the dream.
I am going to use donor eggs to chase my dream if these last 2 frosties fail me.
I didn't think it would be an option as I don't have a sister or any young/ willing relations, all my friends are my age so their eggs are old too. Most ladies find a donor fairly quickly (often a few months) on an Aussie forum I go to, which surprised me and has renewed my hope using donor eggs.
If anyone wants information about donor eggs feel free to PM me.

I'm so sorry to hear what u r going through. It is very painful. I to am experiencing the thoughts of not continuing. I have gone throygh 4 antagonist cycles this year and found out just b4 Xmas the fourth was a complete failure. We haven't been able to freeze any eggs and am desperate for answers from someone. The year before we did 2 iui. I'v just turned 35 and made an appointment with a new doctor and center. But still am unsure as I feel alone with no answers. I know you might not want to hear, but love the one you have. People say even if you have 1 the feelings of wanting are the same, but, I beg to differ. Imagine life without your litle angel. How would you feel now? Lots if hugs to you. I know it is hard and painful and scary.

I am returning to update this thread
we did go on to have one more cycle that was fraught with issues again and no pregnancy
So since June 2013 I have stepped off the IVF bandwagon with that has come a myriad of emotions and changes in our lives
some good some bad but it it's still a process that I'm dealing with
i am accepting the family we are and enjoying the time as I don't want to waste it thinking of what If one more time
six years is a long time to dedicate to IVF so it was time to move on to other things
at 43 I am starting to get more time to myself as my child is 4 yrs
there is no right time to end this journey it is a process of decisions and situations that form your day to day life I was sick of it being so foremost in my life
it it is my right time
i am not quite at peace with it but I'm getting there
I wish everyone their peace on the journey of ending IVF
I am grateful that IVF gave me a child
