@Leisylou the only other thing I could suggest is maybe try hypnosis?!? Not sure if it would work but may be worth a try. @leyshoja clexane is a blood thinner/ anti clotting medication. I think the idea is that my body thinks the embryo/baby is an infection so cuts off blood supply leading to loads of chemicals. If we go back for another I think I'll try iui instead of a full cycle, just add clexane etc

@Leisylou would you ever consider donor eggs down the track ? There are no needles involved in that.
I think you should definitely not give up on yours yet though. Not while they are still fertilising !!

Anyway, I guess all I can do is one step at a time, and this month my steps are all those hormones and drugs plus letrozole to push ovulation, trigger shot and IUI. I guess if that doesn't work then I will have more decisions to make next month.
If it does work, then panic will be setting in about the clotting stuff... But I guess I don't have to panic about that today, and I'm not doing absolutely nothing, I am on the natural alternatives to Clexane (although they're probably not as strong they will be having some effect), so maybe I should just stop melting down and know that I am doing more than last time.

You can get clexane orally now (I have a clotting disorder my haematologist has mentioned it) I'm not sure if it's applicable for ivf but might be better than no clexane. Might be worth asking about?
Leisey sorry for your losses, it's so hard! Did they test the 'products of conception' after your miscarriages to find out why or did you miscarry naturally? Just thought you might get answers that way - I know I did.
Also wondering how @SpringRain is going? Hope you're well.
To those thinking about using a donor... I have no regrets moving on to DE and there many other DE success stories on the over 40's roll call who feel the same. I know it's a completely personal decision - but I wondered if I would have regrets and the answer is no for me.
Leshoja so sorry to read what you're going through... You too Killarneygirl - hang in there ladies xx
