    Well I had my post mortem with my FS yesterday. Hadn't been back since my last PGD results on 8 February. I am doing one more stim cycle and then calling it a day as I'm 43 in June. Although his recommendation is to stop now, he said he would let me do another cycle, since ultimately it's my body and my decision, I get a lot of eggs and don't suffer any physical effects from cycling. So I will start BCP on 23 March assuming AF comes on time. So hopefully EPU in late April some time. This time I will go back to Gonal f instead of menopur and may or may not add a bit of luveris. I've read so many conflicting things about lh and I will decide on that when I do my dhea and testosterone tests next week. Trigger will be lucrin this time, really because I asked to change it from ovidrel just to change something on my last attempt. Interestingly he said that he had been to a conference recently ( this year) and one thing they talked about was HAICSI or PICSI and the evidence to date is that it doesn't actually make a decipherable difference. So he told me to save my money and just to standard ICSI.

    ETA - I will transfer my two untested day 6 frosties at the end of the road. He said he'd transfer both at once as there is such a low chance of either of them taking. So feeling really postive about those!!! Not.

    Actually, TBH I'm worried that if I don't start now I might miss that whole experience. I've waited a long while to POAS.


    This cycle I had my EPU on CD11 and I sort of feel like I'm against the clock as far as when AF could show (not that I want her to show at all.)


    I don't want to wait until Sunday or Monday and then have AF arrive and never have had the fun of the POAS. My cycle is just so frucked up this month I don't know what to expect from my body.


    I hope to expect a baby though But yeah, that's why I'm testing early.

    Interesting! I'm really pleased you are able to get one last shot hon. It's nice to have a little bit of hope on the horizon, hey?


    With regard to the drugs, I tend to think a lot of how we perform under each one just comes down to dumb luck. My last cycle I had taken DHEA and it did nothing for me. I didn't even make it to EPU. And this cycle I got three eggs and two were duds, so....?


    I did a cycle with Luveris and Gonal-F. Again, not good for me as I only got one egg. But again, had I tried another cycle on it a month later I might have gotten a few more. There is just no certainty with all of this, and that's the frustrating thing.


    I also find it eternally frustrating that someone like yourself can make a motza of eggs and have it all come down to nothing. That's just not bl00dy fair IMO. And then there's me, who has done 4 cycles and gotten a grand total of 7 eggs, three of which have been put back into me at various stages (2 fresh and 1 frosty.)


    There is just no rhyme or reason to it.


    Either way, I am crossing everything for you on this, your last (and hopefully successful) final attempt. May the odds be forever in your favour

    Bah ha ha, don't worry. After I pee on each stick and throw it in the bin, it always gets dragged out again a couple of times just to make sure a line hasn't magically appeared!


    ETA: That Pregnyl stuff sucks, for that very reason

    @greenlady thats great you have a plan, it sounds like there will be a few of us April girls My epu should be late April too.

    @Lastround I don't know how you've held off testing either, the wait would have killed me by now!! We're all cheering you on in here and hoping you get that BFFP finally!!

    @Blossom74 - I'm definitely of the view that amh levels and number of eggs collected is not a determinant of success. They keep saying its a numbers game but I don't think it is. Numbers don't matter it's quality and that one quality egg can come from a batch of 3 collected. You wojld think odds of getting a good one would increase if you had a higher number collected but I am certainly the poster girl for that not being the case!
    @Maxwellsmum - that's the problem isn't it. The eggs can look good under a microscope and still be abnormal ( I'm an example of that). It's just so frustrating. I wish they wouldn't progress to blast and give false hope. I created the embryos so have to give them a go. Just hoping that if they're abnormal, they don't implant as I really don't want another d and c as its only about 8 months since my last one with one 6 months before that. You get a lot of day 5 embryos for ' our age' . That should give you hope. I struggle with day 5 as they have all, except one, had to grow to day 6 to reach hatching blast for biopsy.
