Not quite what we expected yesterday. Had a skype appointment with a different clinic and basically their medical director has reviewed all my previous cycles and thinks despite my high AMH for my age (15 a year ago) I have very poor egg quality. She said that the stupidly high oestrogen levels I get for the number of eggs at collection is abnormal.
We thought we were just discussing whether to do long or short protocol but have been told there is really no point in trying standard IVF again. She suggested we could try a clomid cycle or a natural cycle (ie. only getting one egg) as she has had some success with others in my situation.
I am weirdly ok with this bad news. I think it is a relief that someone is telling us the truth and not being overly positive. I get it was just a complete fluke that we got pregnant on our second cycle.
We'll try a couple of these cycles (they're obviously much cheaper cos less drugs) and then its egg donation.
