    Thanks so much @BlondeinBrisvegas! Very interesting...

    FS tried GonalF vs Puregon which led to pretty much same results. She added Luveris in my 2 last cycles which really made a difference in terms of quality. I'm a big believer in Luveris, it did its magic for Billie too!
    FS prefers Luveris over Menopur coz it's "purer", if I remember well.
    I asked for Melatonin last time and she discarded it right away for no particular reason. Something I maybe try to push again as well next time.

    Based on my own research, I've been on a bunch of supplements for 3 or 4 months including:
    - Royal jelly 2000mg
    - Coq10 600mg
    - Prenatal vit + B complex
    - Fish oil
    - Vitamin D
    - Maca 2000mg
    - DHEA 3x 25mg- for 2 months

    She mentioned the PGD testing but because I don't have much of a choice of eggs to be transferred (I usually get 2 or 3 fertilized) I didn't see the use for it. I thought it was done to pick the best embryo, but maybe I didn't get this right?

    Anyway, of course I'm interested in your list and protocol, please post away!
    My next cycle will be on August.

Ive had several chems and mc so with low numbers we git close several times. Ive done 3 stim cycles to get a sibling. This will prob be our last oe. I was on dhea last time. I usually take a double trigger to try and get all mature eggs. All the best and welcome xxx

    Thanks @midnite01! Never heard of double trigger? Does that mean you inject 2x triggers? One is not enough to get them all?

    How long were you on Dhea last time, and are you on it again this time?

    Sorry for the 100 questions at a time ahah! I love discovering stuff I've never heard about..

    That's fair enough if you've only got 2 or 3 embies to transfer I can see why you'd rather just put them back and leave it to fate though you could always grow them out to Day 5 and see if they make the grade that way too without doing the PGD??On one side of the fence you have the FS who believe (like Wazza) in growing an embryo out to Day 5 in the dish regardless of how many you have as he believes if they can make it to Day 5 then you're in with a chance.On the other side of the fence are the FS who believe it's better to put them back in earlier (especially if you've only got a couple on the go) as they believe they're better off in your oven than in the dish plus at least then you also cut the risk of having nothing to transfer as well.PGD testing of the embryo will tell you if the embryo is chromosomally normal or not which ensures that you're not wasting your time and money transferring embryo's that are duds and have no chance of implanting. However, in order to PGD test the embryo's, they do need to meet certain criteria. The first one being that they have to be of a really high grading (is my understanding) and most labs take the sample of cells from Day 5 embryo's also.Some of the Lovelies here who have had PGD testing done can advise further about it all Shall update the Roll Call and post Supplements List and protocol in separate posts for you

    @LillyM A copy and paste from a file where I've saved the list. Pls excuse the bold type.


    For Her: Folic Acid (Megafol brand usually over the counter at the chemist) 1x5mg tab a day, Berroca 1x day (I substituted a Mega B capsule instead), Fish Oil 1000mg's a day, Zinc- 40mg's a day, Vitamin E 500mg's (1000iu) a day, Co-Enzyme Q10 200-400mg's a day (I did 300 mg's a day), Low dose aspirin 100mg's a day, DHEA 3x25mg caps a day, Melatonin 1x5mg capsule at night. I also added Vit D as I was low in it and Fresh Royal Jelly (1/2tsp a day) but you could take it capsule form too.

    For Him: Aloe Vera Juice 20mls at night, Zinc 40mg's, Pumpkin seeds >10 per day (I just gave DP 1 tbs of peppita's every day), Folic Acid 5mg's a day, Goji berries 1xtbs a day or 20 mls a day of Goji berry juice, Selenium 100mcg/day.

    You can take all of these right up until EPU (except the DHEA, you have to decrease to 1 capsule a day from Day 2 of stims until EPU). You also need a script for the DHEA/Melatonin here in Aus and have it made up at a Compounding Chemist.

    Some of the Girls here on BH buy it online from o/seas. I think they use sites like iherb to purchase it??



    I also remember Wazza giving me some reading material about Myo-inositol as well from memory. Some of his current Girls will hopefully chime in and update you about that and anything else on the list I've posted just in case anything's changed/added etc.

    Good evening ladies and a big welcome to our new members


    Apologies for being a bit absent of late - what can I say, I'm an accountant and it's tax season


    Life here is nothing but a flurry of paperwork at the moment. That, interspersed with sick cats, crook cars, and house cleaning, ha ha. Actually things are ok at the moment, with both the car and cat issues remaining steady.


    Looking forward to the weekend though, when I can do my nails and have a nice sleep in. Oh! I've been in my vegie patch again! Check this out!

    @Jazzabelle13 - Welcome hun, Good luck in your tww hoping you get a good outcome x
    @LillyM - Welcome hun, I am only 36 but just like you seem to be producing older eggs with huge chromosomal issues. Just doing my 5th fresh cycle also its funny how the excitement novelty and hope wears off isn't it I feel more like 'here we go again'!!!! You sound like you are being very proactive with your next steps though hoping a change in protocol does the trick for you x
    @Billie2 - Fantastic news on the bleeding easing the progesterone is doing its thing. Haha you cracked me up with the baby dust comment 😂.
    @Charlie74 - Yes hun PBS scripts are a set price of $37 in most chemists although I think they were slightly cheaper somehow in chemist warehouse maybe around $27 but as @Tinachris said they might have to order them in. I know for me they had to order them from Melbourne where as I am based in Brisbane so I just paid more for the convenience.
