Hi everyone, after our first failed IVF round back in November we have decided to try again on my January cycle. Today was the day of my first scan, we are now waiting for my period to arrive any day now so I can begin the new treatment on day 2.
I'm 38 and my husband is 36 and I have no other problems except I have a low follicule count and I guess egg quality could be better too. The first round they only got 4 eggs, 2 fertilised, 1 didn't do anything and the other multiplied too quickly so they discarded 2. We had 2 X grade 2 and 2.5 transferred after a 2 days. We didn't get any to freeze and are having to start again.
This time round I am on an Antagonist programme and they have changed my drug treatment plan, which I'm hoping is a good thing.
I had my first scan today to check my follicules and womb lining and I only had 3 each side. I've been feeling really down since our appt this afternoon as the reality of low egg reserves is very real. I'm starting to panic about such low chances of this ever happening and all the time people are telling me my age is a problem and I need to get a move on. I really don't know what else to do.
Does anyone know how I can increase my follicule count and egg quality? What changes can I make to my lifestyle? Diet, etc.
I've taken 6 weeks off work to ensure I'm super chilled and focussing on me and have started yoga and meditation at a local Dahn Yoga centre too.
Your advice is greatly appreciated ladies, thank you xx
