    Hi everyone

    @BlondeinBrisvegas I hope you are recovering well and the vomitron has spun its way right out of your house now! Sounds like a very nasty one, I feel for you, nothing worse, especially when you have to do fifty million loads of washing when all you want to do is lay down and moan. Wishing you all a good recovery from here

    @winsor I don't think I've said how happy and excited I am that your numbers are looking so awesome! Such a relief for it to all be on track and looking good.

    @Charlie74 I think it's great that you're having a face to face appointment to go through it all - I'm sure you'll get some answers and a strategy to move forward. In Chinese medicine circles pelvic congestion is a "thing", and they have specific herbs for it, so maybe see a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner to get some herbs to go along with your next cycle? Can't hurt and won't interfere with anything.

    @Precious40 I don't blame you for feeling so lost and awful, it is such a difficult thing to go through and with the surgery and such a long time of not knowing what was going on... Take the time you need to grieve and find some balance again. It takes time.

    @Tahli I'm sorry to hear you've been so sick with that medicine, that's really difficult. Hope it passes soon and you are able to tolerate it better. Not what you need right now.

    I know I've missed a few people, sorry, I'll catch up when I can!

    AFM I saw my new FS today to get a plan for a cycle - I think I must be the only woman in the world who had Wazza as her FS for several cycles and has decided to go elsewhere!

    I had a huge list of questions and he was SO nice and patient and had good humour, I really liked him. He said there is no cut-off for Medicare at 45 years old so my urgent time pressure just went - but obviously at this age there's not a lot of point doing a lot of cycles, so he's happy to do one with me and see what happens, but wouldn't keep pushing it if I don't respond at all. Which is what I want anyway.

    The first thing is that he wants a Hysteroscopy so that he can make sure my oven is OK. I've had lots of ultrasounds and all looks good, but he wants to test for endometritis and he will do an NK cells biopsy as well. He also does a flush of the tubes etc so I'm happy with that. Whether I do OE or DE I still need to make sure my oven is fine. We think it is because I've had no trouble implanting, my lining is usually around 1.1mm, and also three out of four miscarriages needed D&Cs as I didn't physically miscarry - but he just wants to make sure, which is good. It's under GA thank goodness!

    Then he wants to do a cycle using Elonva and topping up with Puregon as needed probably 200iu. Then depending on results, Orgalutran and trigger, but I will have to find out about the things like topping up FSH at 2pm when triggering that night, and double triggers... But I'll deal with that if and when we get to that stage of having enough follies to bother.

    He is also supportive of aspirin, prednisone and progesterone, doesn't think I need Clexane, but will if I want to do it. Recommended 600mg of CoQ10 (I've been taking 300mg for a couple of months so will increase it) but otherwise doesn't think I need anything else.

    So I was trying to fit in a cycle in March, but because my cycle was mucked up and delayed by two weeks, it doesn't fit all nicely in between my travel now, so he said not to worry about, get the Hysteroscopy in during March if I can, and then we can do a cycle in April when I don't have anything on. My birthday is in April, so that's why I felt such urgency to get on with it, but he's happy to do a cycle with me after age 45 so that's a relief. I can take my time now.

    He still thinks it's a long shot, but he did say that some women respond well to low doses and also to Elonva and I've tried the high doses with no result, so who knows? For me, it is about putting my mind at rest so I can move to DE and know that I've left no stone unturned in my quest for a biological child. At least when I look back, I can say I tried everything.

    Just popping in to send @Charlie74 and @Precious40 a hug. I hope you get some answers at your appointment Charlie and precious it sounds like a really good idea to get away for a week or so and take your head out of the usual routine. I remember after my d&c (IVF BFP) waking up from the anaesthetic and I couldn't stop crying. After thinking I had made it to 12 weeks and then all of a sudden it's as though none of it ever happened. It's crushing. Do whatever gets you through x

    Hello everyone. So I've finally managed to speak to the FS at my current clinic. He is going to refer me to have the laparoscopy in the pubic hospital so it will be free and he said the wait won't be long. Yay! Small win. He said he can't see any issues with me and it's probably the embryos but the lap will help rule out any other potential issues. He said my current clinic has now had a price reduction and will grow all embryos out to day 5. He said if I cycle with them again he will make my dose 450iui and try to get as many embryos as possible and do all the immune protocol also. They previously only have low doses and aim for a small number of embryos. The only thing is the clinic do not have Pgd testing. Now I'm not really sure what to do about Dr NL. I can't cycle with him until April anyway as my private health hasn't kicked in so maybe I should do another cycle with my current clinic?? I don't know if all of this is just more blind hope and potentially more emotional damage but financially it is manageable as compared to Monash which is just so crazy expensive. I had planned on an ivf forced break but now I don't know.

    it sounds like they're luring you back in @Caesardust. I guess it's worth trying the higher dose if you can afford the cycle and want to try it to see if there's a different response. would making a pros vs cons list help you decide?

    How fast can he get you in for the Lap Luv?? If he can pull some strings and get you in in the next few weeks (does it have to be done on a particular day??) then I'd go for it. Ask him to do an Endometrial biopsy while he's in there. It'll be a "2 for the price of 1" deal in that he'll be able to test for uterine NK Cells plus you'll also have the benefit of having an Endo Scratch at the same time which could help with implantation of the embryo(s).

    It's hard not being able to test your embryo's, but growing them out to Day 5 at least will give you a better chance with the one's that make it. Not as high as transferring a PGD tested embryo of course, but a lot higher than a day 2,3 or 4 transfer Luv

    If he can put you on a decent immune protocol and preferably get you in for that Lap before you start as it would be beneficial for you to know that there's no issue in your oven or with your tubes leaking etc, then I would definitely give it a go!!!

    @Charlie74 my doc told me to wean off 5mg every 5 days.
    @Tahli how are you doing? What happened with the diabex?? I've been sick from it before but usually if I took tablets too close together or on an empty stomach or had upped the dose too quickly. It's a tricky med to get right.
