The board seems kind of slow lately so I thought I'd break the habit of several years and start a thread.
I'm beginning to feel a bit like a verteran IVF'er and I don't know how it happened, apart from the whole 'it's not working!' aspect. Ugh.
I'm about the start my third stim which will possibly (or possibly not since I have History in this department) end up anywhere from my sixth (and last) transfer to my eleventh (and last) transfer and then I plan to quit.
My first IVF/ICSI (long downreg) was 17 eggs, 15 ferts, 12 usable embryos, twins and a chemical pregnancy.
My second stim (antagonist) was an unmitigated disaster going from hyperstim concerns to a 50% follicle yield rate of 12 eggs and only 3 ferts. Yes, three. With ICSI. I didn't want to bother transferring the best two, but was talked into it and, for the third time in my IVf history proved that pessaries Do Not Work for me- LP of 10 days. Yes, very PO'd about that. Especially when it was predictable and nobody bothered to call me to tell me about the negative beta.
So here I am about to go at it again for a back to back last crack at it.
Anybody else out there with a similar story or am I the only old lady ?
