Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve been on after third failed cycle in the summer. Congratulations to those who have had their long awaited BFPs and hugs to those still waiting.
We finally had our follow up meeting today after failed 3rd cycle in August - I think we’d been forgotten about but could only finally face chasing it up before Xmas. We really like our consultant so was glad we managed to get appt with him (it’s was nhs cycle so not guaranteed).
We had lowest dose cycle, best egg retrieval rate (I have low amh) and also best fertilisation rate. Quality as ever was a problem. Two four cells transferred on day 3 and the remaining 3 degraded.
He doesnt think it all stacks up for me given my stats. After three cycles the only thing he’s prepared to say is that IVF isn’t the answer for me. I suggested IUI as a possible option so that eggs aren’t out under as much stress as they would with IVF if quality isn’t great. That was what he was going to suggest - with v mild stims.
He says that difficult to say whether egg or sperm is the issue so 🤷♀️ we aren’t at stage of discussing donor yet but with that comment, not sure we’d feel confident going down that route either.
We are going to go with the IUI and have pre appointment next month so will be cycle after that we’ll have a go 😬 nothing to lose!
I posted a couple of months about IUI but if anyone has any success stories, I’d love to hear them (our any other miracle cures 😂) xxx
