    I just really want to stress that there is no outcome difference between IM progesterone and pessaries.

    At the moment CFC have no Gestone. If IM Gestone doesn't appeal or is giving reactions then I would suggest using an alternative. There is no use suffering unnecessarily for weeks. I am more than happy to be using Crinone and in no way consider that I am at a disadvantage.

    As for the considered poor outcome of a donor's first cycle I would have to say that could be in part to not knowing how the donor is going to react to the drug regimen etc. Many factors can influence the quality of the eggs and the cycle outcome so it would be best to speakbto the doctor regarding whether or not the donor is likely to have a better outcome for you for a future cycle. It is not only her egg quality and AMH has nothing to do with egg quality, merely egg reserve. It will not tell the doctor how the donor will respond either.

    Welcome babywish, i think you will need to ask cyndi if you can add those meds to your protocol. They may be hesitant about the pred as i know when i asked for it they initially said they didnt recommend because it can cause birth defects such as cleft palate, but my Dr in perth who is a ob/gyn wrote it for me. Im not sure but you may need a few extra tests before you start regular clexane to see if you have any clotting disorders? Possibly? Good luck.

    Its sad because we spent so much time, resources and money getting here, and we were hoping for embryos to freeze for next time, only to get told we have none.
    I am trying to be very positive and praying we get a very great outcome from our embryos, because there is nothing I want more than to be a mother.
    The thing is what do we do for a sibling, go through the same donor? or someone new/
    How do you know which donors to use.
    What do we do now?
    Hi mummy2016,
    I would be feeling the same as you. Sorry that you didnt get any embryos left to freeze. I hope the 2 transfered are good and strong. You didnt get the outcome you hoped but at least you have one good in there nestling in and and one still growing. as I have been told a million times 'it only takes one'. I did a lot of researching picking my 2nd donor and asked the clinic for their egg donation reports and founf that some girls who were proven and had their own children didnt get many blasts. Stay calm and send happy sticking thoughts to your embryos. Xxx

    Agree with this @mummy2016 - I would be feeling gutted right now too if I were you but the twin stats with CFC are huge so hopefully you won't need to worry. If you end up with a singleton out of this and want to go down that track again later, your donor would have hopefully done other donations by then so you could get those stats and see if there had been any better results. Personally, if I had to make the choice - it would be tough - but I think I'd have to go with a different donor if 2 good embies ended up being typical for your donor. I really hope you don't have to make that choice - good luck with the tww !!

    KMP sounds like I got the last batch of the gestone! Have been on lubion for two days and am still getting itching. However..... second bloodtest result is in and the HCG has gone from 73 to 234 in 48 hrs. I am feeling relieved and excited at last that this is really happening. Will be doing another bloodtest tomorrow. The guys I work with suggested that being pregnant might be making me supersensitive and it could be a sign it's going to be a boy. Will have to wait awhile to confirm that theory.
    I'll let you all know if I don't end up using anymore of the gestone in case someone else can use it.

    Hi ECM1981, thank you for your advice I don't have any clotting issues that I know of so I wont worry I'll just stick with what CFC have given me. As you ladies have done IVF and been to CFC would you recommend doing the intralipids or is it only a benefit if your doing immune protocols?
    Thanks again.

    I do the intralipids because of immune issues. I have never been pregnant and have had 4 transfers- 1 my own egg, and then 3 using donor egg and transfering 2, 2, and then 3 embryos. So who knows where the problem lies with me. At the beginning i thought it was just egg quality but turns out it could be more. Was your first pregnancy easily achieved? Its good that you are researching, i think its best to throw all these questions at cyndi and see what she says. I always email the nurses a billion times a day. Im sure they roll their eyes everytime they see my name! ☺

    Everythings gone brilliantly, ta, much better than I expected! I have 2 "excellent" quality expanding blasts on board and am thrilled. From when I had them transferred today, 1 should hatch in 12 hours and the other 6 hours later. This transfer has by far been the best experience. Super fingers crossed for 4th time lucky!! I'll POAS at 12dpo, so next Saturday.
