Was just messaging my bff saying how I think my Mum thinks we are silly going for IVF.
Story is I fell pregnant in Sep 18 but had MMC. The month I fell was the only normal 28 day cycle I had with ov on day 14.
Not been able to get pregnant since and in April was prescribed Clomid to get the ovulation timing right and for a helping hand. 8 months of Clomid, releasing two eggs every cycle, nice thick lining, super strong sperm and no pregnancy resulted in AMH & FSH tests which came back low and high respectively.
We have been advised by a leading fertility expert to try IVF. He said that on Clomid I have around 8-9 follicles each month so thinks I will respond to ivf meds.
He also said that as we don’t know how rapidly my ovarian reserve is decreasing I should also freeze eggs for the future as he is pretty confident for baby 1 but baby 2 could be potentially tricky.
So I’m pleased we have a plan but obviously gutted that my eggs are running out quicker than they should be for my age.
My bff said that she agrees with mum, that as I know I can get pregnant I should wait longer - this really upset me - how much longer do you wait before you think it’s time for IVF. It’s been the worst 18 months of my life and I want to move on and do as much as I possibly can to give myself a chance to get pregnant.
Just don’t understand why others think it’s a bad decision - if I hadn’t got pregnant last year and had all the same tests with same results I don’t think they’d have this opinion
I need their support not to feel like they think I’m stupid.
