Hello all. I'm going to start my 4th cycle of ivf after having 3 failed attempts so far. I'm just waiting to get better from my mental health following the fails which caused me to have an eating disorder. I'm currently receiving help through the GP etc
I was told that my egg quality wasn't brilliant. My first and second round i produced 17 eggs which 11 fertilised, 2 were transferred at day 3. None got to blastocyst and none survived for freezing.
I then had ovarian drilling as the consultant said I had polycystic ovaries. Whilst having the operation they found a benign cyst which was removed.
Following this I had a 3rd cycle of ivf and produced 11 eggs which 8 fertilised and 2 transferred again at day 3 again resulted in a fail. None survived or got to blastocyst and the eggs that were transferred has what they called hatching meaning the egg needed to have a little hole put in it prior to transfer.
I'm told my egg quality isn't brilliant and I want to try and increase the quality prior to my next attempt. I'm currently suffering from an eating disorder so this doesn't help but I'm having treatment. So any advice would be appreciated.
I'm now under a new clinic for my 4th attempt but she won't carry out the ivf until my BMI is increased. This consultant at the new clinic does not believe I have ever had polycystic ovaries following her taking a scan and viewing the image so I'm a bit confused with this.
She is a very experienced ivf consultant and is highly recommended. I just need some help in what to eat and drink to boost my chances as I don't think I can keep putting myself through this. I'm 34 now and it seems to get harder.
sorry for the long story but can anyone share if they have had similar situation and any good advice would be appreciated.
Best wishes xx
