Newbie here and a bit of a desperado too....
I am just after my 5th ICSI this year (i mean the just finished 2014) and i am exhausted. Mentally and financially. My FSH is over 20 and after 2 unsuccesful ISCI I was recommended ED.
So, i have changed clinics for second opinion. Specialist currently trying different meds.
Any good stories out there with similar history? I dont know what else to do.
Me 40, DH 44
ICSI 1# May 2014, ER, 1 egg only - didnt fertilised (Puregon 250ui)
ICSI 2# Sept 2014, ER, 1 egg only - not mature (Gonal 450ui)
ICSI 3# Nov 2014, ER, 6 eggs, 4 fertilised, 1 ET, BFN, no frosties (Elonva, Puregon 150ui)
ICSI 4# Dec 2014, cxld due to poor response (Elonva, Puregon 150ui)
ICSI 5# Jan 2015, cxld due to possible cyst (Gonal 600ui)

Just rambling again. Not having a great day. Feeling very down with the whole waiting game for my next cycle. Been doing acupuncture and chiro to increase the chance of quality (and quantity) of future eggs. It looks like it may be our last try. Got appointment with my FS to discuss changing meds to make most of the cycle.
Soory, but got nobody to talk to...

Hi @MaxKat, sorry not sure what to say other than I hope your new FS can help you.
I've been perusing the egg donation forums here on bub hub and I've registered at eggdonationaustralia.com there is some very uplifting stories and interesting info on both. Sometimes it can be a real support to have a plan B.
Good luck, 5 ICSI BFN in a row is pretty brutal there are definitely quite a few ladies on here that snag it with more cycles than that though, so don't lose hope.

Hi MaxKat I'm on the over 40's thread too. I'm starting ivf stim cycle #5 and I can empathise with how demoralising it can be.
I think it's a good idea to ask your FS to be straight with you about your chances. I did that after cycle 4 and she said my chances are 'reasonable' so that was enough for me to keep going.
I hope you get the answers you need at your appointment.
See you on the other thread some time

I know Skyler. I'm reading whatever info i can. I'm still not ready for egg donor. Can't get past the fact it's not 'mine'. So that's why i swapped clinics. I hope appointment will shine more light onto my situation. But of course there are happy endings here so there is always gope for us!
