Need your help

Hey hi everyone! Now I'm in quandary, so I hope you can help me to sort out. Have never felt such weakness and despair. Recently I have surgery and as a consequence of that removed tubes, so now to conceive in a natural way seems to be impossible for me. I also made blood tests, and they gave me such results: 0.3 of Anti-Mullerian hormone and 17 of follicle-stimulating. I'm 32 y.o. Some people say I should use IVF, but it seems so unexplored and frightening to me. The question is: what is the probability I could get pregnant via IVF? How many tries I should make? Has somebody collided with that? Thanks for your consideration.

Hey, don't lose hope I am sure things will work out. I think IVF is a really good option. It has proven to be highly successful. You just have to look into few things before opting for the process. The first and the foremost thing is your budget. Secondly, make sure the clinic you are visiting cares about you and your money, there are a lot of clinics out there who are just there to waste your money. When I was recently looking for a good clinic for myself I made sure that they had good experience doctors as well. These things matter a lot and don't neglect them.

Thank you for attention! Can you please tell what steps I have to undertake before the procedure? Did you particularly betake to this? Yeah, a clinic really matters, that's why I'm here asking for help and support. I'm from Switzerland and such manipulations are forbidden here. Did you hear some reviews concerning effective ones? Thank you twice

Since you are fairly new to the idea of IVF my suggestion to you would be to first research about IVF, read about individuals experience as well. The most important step is to look around and see what clinic options you have. So for example for me, financial constraint were a major issue as insurance was not covering my process. Therefore, my DH started looking elsewhere, where the process was being done comparatively inexpensively. We looked up various options online and then read the reviews. I think that is something really important read people's experiences. Then almost every doctor or clinic has their website go and look into them and get in touch. Good luck to you I hope you are soon able to conceive.

Gosh, that's tough, honey. God love you poor thing you've endured much. Leaving you with none of your tubes is definitely a huge obstacle..IVF might be a good answer though..

What is the probability I could get pregnant via IVF? - The success rates are guite high nowadays within clinics. But while searching for the place to be with, I'd recommend you look more for the high birth rates, not success..

How many tries I should make? - No one knows how many tries it will take you!! Every case is different, but often it takes more than one round to conceive. I've just shared this on another thread. There are clinics which want to make the IVF treatment a win-win situation. I've been twice with one of this kind. They offer money back guarantee programs. You pay for a certain number of cycles (for example 5 IVF cycles in my case) and if you do not get pregnant within those 5 rounds, they give you back your money. This is a wonderful option, which could help you preserve your peace of mind. At least as regards the financial aspect. So before starting an IVF cycle make sure that your clinic has such an option and ask them whether you qualify for such a programme.

Has somebody collided with that? - ME! Here's some of my background. Me – 37. DH – 38. TTC since Jan 2008. Faced 2 chemical pregnancies the 2 following years. Was put on Clomid 50 but ended with another chemical. Oct-Dec 2010 Fermara 5 and Purgon 75. Had 3 months break from treatments. Feb & Mar & Apr 2011 IUI #1 & 2 & 3 Purgon 150 & Clomid 100 BFN x3. IVF #1 Superfact & Puregon 300. 10 eggs retrieved, 8 mature, 6 eggs fertilized, 2 survived. Transferred 2 low grade morulas on day 5 – BFN.

Donor Egg Cycle. IVF#1 (DE)April 2015. Transferred 1 grade 4AA embryo – BFN. Dr made some changes into treatment protocol. IVF#2 (DE) - transferred 2 blasts. BFP on 6dp5dt.1st Beta 148. 2nd Beta- 315. 7wk 3d ultrasound - 1 heartbeat 138bpm, measuring 7wks 3ds. My sweet son born via C-section. Adding 2 more MCs after my son was born.

We've just been through another donor egg cycle with the same clinic. They placed back2 A grade embies (The clinic guarantees at least 3 healthy A grade embies for the ET if you're dealing with donor eggs). Having every bone in my body crossed for our lucky starts in this cycle..Hope, I've answered some. Stay well, hun, feel free to ask for details x

We passed treatments in ukraine twice. Our DS is DE IVF boy. I'm currently prego with baby#2 after another DE IVF round undergone at bio texcom. So I've mentioned ''guaranteed'' plans. This means you sign up for 5 IVF shots. You get all meds needed. Donor eggs (if needed). Legal support. Interpreter services etc - their plans are all-inclusive. And in case you fail to get prego after 5 shots in a row and cannot or are not willing to continue with them- they will refund you all money paid back! (Those ''guaranteed'' plans give you the unlimited number of attempts. So you'll get your baby, no matter how many rounds it will take them). As far as I know, there have never been couples who left without their kids. (Couples who were doing ''guaranteed'' packages, I mean). Then costs. They offer 1 attempt - 5k euros. 2 attempts - 7k euros. 5 attempts ''guaranteed'' plan - 10k euros. ALL MEDS INCLUDED!! Afterall, we would never come back to them for baby#2 if were not satisfied. Hope this message helps you. All the best!!

Hey sweetie! So sorry you've found yourself here. Actually I'm in the same boat with you, the only disctinction is I only can run surrogacy, cause can't bear a child at all. Felt a lot of despair when found out my destiny turned that way. Despite of it now I can tell another woman who are shattered with knowing of this: you are not alone and you're not doomed. To have a baby is my dream for last five years, so recently I came to one of European countries to perform this procedure and explore services among different clinics. If you have questions, I'm free to ask you all of them. This is my email: janettemarvin88@gmail.com

Hi dear! Very pleased for your response. Some people told me about prices in Eastern-European countries, and I was very surprised cause they're really low compared to US, for instance. Please tell me what country did you visit? Did you use the services of those one and what's your impression? Looking forward to your reply. Have a nice day!

I don't have personal experience with surrogacy. I just dropped in to wish you a successful road ahead. We're currently passing DE IVF in ukraine for a sibling. Came back to the same clinic we were previously successful with. Had enough time to do research on surrogacy there..you know, just in case..but truly hope guys will create another miracle for us.

We're currently undergoing donor egg cycle in Ukraine. The clinic has the follownig packages:

1 IVF cycle for EUR 4,900.

2 cycles for EUR 6,900.

5 cycles for EUR 9,900. All the packages include donor eggs, medications, accommodation, interpreter services and others.

They've got a huge donor database. Each donor is fixed in the photo and video with the help of special 3D technology. You're able to see a woman from all sides. Zooming in and out the image. On the basis of this material, an anthropometric and physiognomic portrait of the woman is created. Then her basic characteristics are digitized. After receiving the same data about the future father they can be superimposed on each other. This helps to predict the possible appearance of a child. In addition, the other data, such as the IQ of the donor, education, abilities, inclinations and state of health down to small details (like dental health), temperament and character traits are also calculated. I believe it's important for all IP. Hope this helps an good luck!

The actual IVF success rate you want would divide the number of live births by the total number of women who under-go treatment. This tells you the percentage of women that walk home with baby, and the number of people that don’t.

If you think that IVF might make sense for you, carefully assess any treatment center before undergoing the procedure. Here are some questions to ask the staff at the fertility clinic:

What is your pregnancy ratio per embryo transfer?

What is your pregnancy rate for couples in our age group and with our fertility problem?

What is the live birth rate for all couples who undergo this procedure each year at your facility?

How many of those deliveries are twins? Other multiple births?

How much will the procedure cost, including the cost of the hormone treatments?

How much does it cost to store embryos and how long can we store them?

Do you participate in an egg donation program?

In the most of cases the ovarian stimulation drugs work properly. But that isn't always how it goes. Sometimes the follicles don't grow. The doctor may increase the medications. And if your ovaries still don't respond, the cycle is likely to be canceled. This doesn't mean another cycle won't work. You may just need different medications. However, if this occurs repeatedly, your doctor may suggest using donor egg. One may want to get a second opinion before moving forward at this point. TTC since Jan 2008. Faced 2 chemical pregnancies the 2 following years. Was put on Clomid 50 but ended with another chemical. Oct-Dec 2010 Fermara 5 and Purgon 75. Had 3 months break from treatments. Feb & Mar & Apr 2011 IUI #1 & 2 & 3 Purgon 150 & Clomid 100 BFN x3. IVF #1 Superfact & Puregon 300. 10 eggs retrieved, 8 mature, 6 eggs fertilized, 2 survived. Transferred 2 low grade morulas on day 5 – BFN.
