    Hi Paigegirl,

    One thing I've learnt from my journey is that you don't have a whole lot of control, and I'm like you, I like to have everything thought-out and planned... it's been a tough 'life lesson' to relinquish control!

    You might also want to ask about freezing eggs rather than embryo's if you're concerned about your 'future' husband. Although, I have a feeling that this process is not covered by medicare unless you are going through treatments like chemo. I believe IVF-A and Genea both offer this as an option though. Sister in law went through Genea in Sydney for PGD and was sucessful, they are highly recommended (if I lived in Sydney they would be my choice).

    Best of luck with everything, this forum is full of support and advice if you need it!

    Freezing eggs has a very low success rate though. Just warning you. My friend works as an embryologist and she doesn't recommend it.

    I did go it alone and I have a 21 month old beautiful girl and I'm 15 weeks pregnant with #2. I find being a single parent quite easy, but I have a very supportive family.

    Default Trying to choose between dr Gavin Sacks IvF AUST & Devorah Leibermann GENEA

    Hi
    im new to posting on forums
    But this particular topic struck a cord with me
    i am in similar situation
    I have been doing ivf for last 2-3 years
    no problem with egg qty just quality resulting in couple of miscarriages
    i am on my last try before resorting to using donor eggs
    my age is 45 so not very good in ivf circles
    i am wanting to change ivf doctors
    either dr Gavin Sacks ivf Australia
    or Dr Devorah Lieberman genea
    i have been with both clinics before and must say I favour Genea
    however I want the best dr for my age related concerns
    as well as someone realistic but also sympathetic with my age
    i wanted to know any feedback in choosing as well as age related advice

I have a similar AMH to yours but my issue is egg quality due to my age. I haven't had a problem getting good numbers of eggs. Be guided by your FS and stay true to what you feel is right for you because no one will be able to give you an exact answer to your question. I too am with Dr Leiberman, only just changed to her. She specialises in low AMH and age related fertility issues and I find her very progressive in trying anything that might help. She is away though until mid July so that might make it hard to see her before you go away.

    Keeping this short and sweet and to the point because Im time poor moving house.

    The AMH is low and you should get started asap. And not wait with a gap between babies. Yes its nice to have 2 yrs between but i would recommend going again after 6 months.

    Dr Sacks. ummmmm not the best bedside manner, he is very frank!!!!! With low AMH he is more than likely to suggest donor eggs to you.

    To the other lady 45yrs old and trying to see dr sacks ummmm not the best idea. He is known for telling 40yr olds its hopeless and to give up unless you use donor eggs.


    Egg freezing has a low success. Eggs with sperm to create embies have much more succeess.

    sorry to be sharp, blunt and to the point.
