Interesting meeting, feeling better now! What do you think?

Hi girls,

Hoping you are all doing as well as possible on your journeys ๐Ÿ˜

I had an appointment with a private gynaecologist on Monday after 4 times medicating for Ivf.

I went to check my ovarian reserve to make sure waiting a few months wasn't a big mistake. I came out with much much more....

I feel like someone has turned on the light!

First cycle cancelled due to hyperstimulation.

2nd got 16 eggs, 15 fertilised, 2 survived to say 3 really bad quality.

3rd slightly lowered medication, 8 eggs ( panic attack at egg collection, no general anesthetic in Spain. All froze day 2.

Defrosted all ok but didn't keep multiplying ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

4th, cancelled 2 days before egg collection, i was pregnant.... Miscarried ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

His recommendation for last try.

Hubby and i take supplements. Hubby's sperm heads are round, should be diamond shaped. Will fertilize but take longer.

Eggs grown too quickly, hence over simulation. Better to stimulate 21 days instead of 14, get less eggs but better quality.

In 3 months supplements should take affect as sperm takes 129 days to develop fully.

Insist on freezing all. After such brutal stims and extraction body isn't ready.

Recover, then in 3 months implant.

Finally i feel like someone is listening and I'm not one of hundreds. I feel back in control.

Not doing last cycle to September, I'm not mentally strong enough for it and.... May be we will be lucky and get pregnant before.

We had a miracle last time against an the odds!!! Come on lightening... Strike twice!

Any thoughts?????

I love that little picture. Really made me smile.

So good that you have had such a positive consultation with such constructive feedback.

I've heard the advice to freeze all too and in fact have put my name down to participate in a study as the NHS are looking into whether all of their cycles should be done that way as the thought is that the success rate is higher.

I think it's great that you're taking the time to get yourself mentally ready for the next round later this year and wish you all the very best of luck with it. X
