So had baseline scan on Wed, endometrium too thick again this month indicating an abnormal cycle. Oestradiol too high again, bascically I gave geriatric ovaries. It’s hopeless trying with my eggs. But I still have NHS funding left as I was given a second set of funding after they made an error and did IVF instead of ICSI on the one egg retrieved during my May/June cycle. So here are my options in no particular order :
1. Use funding to try long protocol. I’ve been on short protocol. Anyone out there with low AMH around my age (39) who have tried long protocol?
2. Move to donor eggs in a private clinic but I can’t move NHS funding with me so this will cost us. We’ve researched the costs and have been saving like mad. We’ve been renting our spare room through Airbnb, have set up little ventures outside our normal 9-5 to earn extra money & cut down to one car. This means we’ve been saving £700-£1k each month.
3. Use our NHS funding for donor eggs but waiting list is 12-18 months compared to 3-6 months if we go privately.
All thoughts and experiences welcome.
Hugs to you all,
