    @Jem70 this scares the flippin' heck out of me. I'm so sorry you're experiencing this. Are you with Monash? If so I can dig out my consent forms for you & have a read if you like? Mine were signed 3 months ago so are recent.
    @BlondeinBrisvegas nope, in counseling there's absolutely no mention of a donor changing consent once an embryo is actually made. Before-hand yes, but not after.
    PS: I've just tried to find my signed copy for you but Monash didn't give me a copy to retain. I'm now going to request one.

    Hellooooo! Here I am :-). You're right BIB, not quite my specialty field so don't know the law on this one off the top of my head, will prob come down to the specific contract anyway. But it so happens I have another lawyer friend visiting me this arvo (choc cupcake frenzy at my house ...) and she explored the donor sperm route and was about to start her program, but then her knight in shining armour swept her off her feet (now 38 wks preg with Bub no.2 ... Seriously a fairytale, Amh less than 1 - anyhoo I digress).

    She explored it all very thoroughly so I'll see if she has any insight, I thought she said they can back out up to fertilisation, but I could be wrong. She was at City Fertility BTW, not Monash. Failing that, if the contract is unclear feel free to send me the contract via pm.

    Back to my cupcakes ...

    I've still got all my paper work from melb ivf - will pull mine out tonight and have a look. Honestly it seems like insanity to me.

    I agree BIB. Seems to me that blokes carry a loaded weapon. When they choose to fire that weapon with the full knowledge it may result in a pregnancy, then they accept that once they've fired, its out of their hands - so to speak :-D.

    Shouldn't matter if it's in a relationship, a one night stand or ART, if you to choose to fire the gun in fully informed circumstances, there's no turning back!

    Thanks @Vixjc appreciate the input

    thanks for the support everyone. I'm concerned for all of us @BlondeinBrisvegas @Tahli @Kelly70

    its Melb IVF - they have the sensitivity factor of zero so you can imagine how fun the conversation was!

    @Jem70 - I've already imagined the conversation, knowing who the donor nurse is too!!!

    A quick question ladies...I've just started spotting so I'm hoping AF isn't too far away. This cycle I'm taking Clomid for the 1st time. Do you have any advice on whether to take it in the morning or night?

    Hi chicks - just got off the phone from Fertility First in Sydney as I had a phone apt schedule with Ann to discuss the hycosy results - she told me what I already knew, no issues with the tubes etc and that I had a couple of follicles on each ovary, so there are still eggs she thinks.

    She said she would want me to do a medicated cycle and put me on 450iu of fsh (I chose puregon) to try and get a couple of eggs.

    So I was planning to just chat to her then schedule the iui later if I fancied - and just try naturally this month but suddenly I was talking to their admin and teeing up the iui for this next period. Speaking of which, AF is still MIA which I'm not surprised given the 1000mg vitex I started after last ovulation. I stopped it a few days ago to see if it would bring on AF. I'm guessing the drugs will sort the cycle irregularity out though once it's underway.

    Wonder if I should start the vitex again or not once AF finishes.. Also the dhea I stopped a couple months ago having been on it for several months, I needed a break. Should I start it again?

    In other news - I think I'll factor in DB too if I can!! Craaaaaaaazy.

    @Tahli the spotting's heralding the arrival of AF so you can get started Luv!!

    No real advice about Clomid as I've never used it myself but my understanding is there's no set time to take it. Some women take it depending on when AF arrives so if she does in the morn they take it then, and if the biatch shows up at night, they start it then.

    Others who have a hard time with the side effects take it at night in the hopes it might alleviate them, some say it makes no difference. Either start it when AF arrives or whenever's the most convenient for you I reckon unless one of the other Lovelies who has taken it can shed a bit more light on the subject for you
