Hi Daniella, Lindsay, & Lisa

I would love some advice from you all. As you know I did have a BFN back in October. I met with my doctor to discuss what happened and he said that there was no medical reason why it did not work. (I did egg donor and did not have any eggs to freeze)

I thought that I was going into the meeting and was going to be told that he cant do anything for me anymore and I should start the adoption process. Well that was not the case. He told me that if I wanted I can do the procees again. It is going to cost dearly.

He also said that I should start the adoption process as well as a safety net.

Any thoughts??? Your input would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks, Meg

Meg - I know you did not pose this question to me but I will say Go for it!!!...I did not think I would ever do a second IVF because of the cost and I thank God everyday that the DH said let's go for it or I would not be pregnant right now with a healthy little boy...I also would recommend (if you did not have it the other time) a 5 day blast transfer...I have looked and most places have higher success rates with the 5 day blasts...I will be praying for you and wish you best of luck in whichever journey you choose.

By the way...I did a fresh cycle each time!!!!..I believe it betters the chances...That is only my opinion.

Meg,
I am new to interacting with the boards, but not to reading them. I have been reading them for the past three years for inspiration. My husband and I have been TTTC for 6yrs. I have been on meds for three of those six.

My first fertility Dr. put me through the general schedule if three IUIs and then an IVF and then an FET. Then we were out of $!!

He wanted to keep going with treatments and said he didn't know why it was not working. I had a friend who was preg. and she went to a different Dr. in our town and said that he was considered "Better" than my Dr.

I went to meet with the new Dr. when we had saved enough for another IVF. He immediately scheduled an MRI to see what may be causing the infert. I knew I had Endometiosis, but he found Adenomyosis as well. He said without treatment, I was not likely to get pregnant. I went on huge amounts of Lupron for 6 months and then had another MRI. The medicine worked!! I am now waiting for my test after IVF. It it tomorrow, Thursday and I am nervous, but at least I know why things were not working before.

My first Dr. never checked on anything just started me on meds. and stole my $$. The second Dr. was really interested in diagnosis and then treatment.

I am not sure of your circumstances, but my suggestions to anyone would to be, to find a Dr. that will do all the tests and rule everything out before starting again or for the first time.

Thanks for all of your posts. They have helped me and my husband more than you know!

I will be praying for you!
Kathy

Lisa -

I most likely will go for it but it is so nerve racking!!! I do not want to always wonder - what if i did it again!

On the flip side the dissapointment is unbearable. But I lived through it this time and I have alot of support from my DH and my family and friends so that helps.

Thanks,
Meg

Hi Meg

I also had a failed IVF cycle in March. We had planned to do an IUI with Bravelle, but I overresponded and was told I had to switch to IVF or cancel my cycle. Because we have to pay for meds and all procedures, we decided to switch although it was never our intention. As you described, everyone assumed I would get pregnant bc everything looked good. We even transferred 3 day 3 embryos. I received a negative result and was extremely upset.

We then focused on international adoption for a few months until I got distracted with acupuncture. I decided to give it 6 months. In the past, I had problems with my progesterone/estrogen levels. I would ovulate, but my levels always seemed to be off. After 3 months, I saw improvement and was very happy. My levels had normalized, and I felt better. The problem is that my husband has an extremely low sperm count. So we still had no real chance of getting pregnant.

Luckily at that time, one of the girls at my clinic mentioned there was a free IVF study if I was interested in applying. It was scary not knowing what drugs I was receiving, but it was actually a pleasant experience since they were testing a one time injection rather than the daily injections. And that is how I ended up pregnant, plus I have 7 embryos in storage.

Would I have done it without hearing about this study? I don't know. Probably. If there are no immense obstacles, I would give it another try. I also highly recommend the acupuncture. I had treatments all the way through my IVF and felt it made a real difference in my situation.

Good luck-I think it is worth considering another try. This is coming from someone who still has the money we borrowed for adoption sitting in the bank!

Hang in there. I still cringe when I think back to March...

Hi Lindsay -

Your story is inspriational! And thanks for sharing it with me - it gives me hope. Unfortunately the pain of the BFN is still so fresh (less than a month).

I am looking into acupuncture and I have heard of an herbal chinese guy who has some great success in NYC getting women pg naturally with teas and herbs. It is an inexpencive process so I figured to give it a try until we decided what we are going to do and possibably pick a new donor. It cant hurt.

I am adopted myself so I am not opposed to the idea - but I would love to be pg myself if possible. It is just the cost of another donor cycle on top the the loan I already took and the $$$ needed for adoption is weighing heavly on my mind. Am I going to have any money left if and when I do have a baby??

I also have another obsticle - my DH is 6 years older than me and adoption agencies do not like to give babys to people 45 and over. So time is of the essence.

This really help to discuss this with someone who understands. My friends and family try to help but they do not know the pain that we are going through.

Thanks so much, Meg

Hey ladies we had our followup ultrasound today...Gabriel was very cooperative and he is still a boy and has gotten even bigger...My brother's fiancee went with us to make sure it was still a boy...She would not believe it was a boy until the technician told her and showed her his part...Of course daddy just glows when she shows it...Trust me you all will see once you have the u/s that determines the sex....Also my triple screen bloodtest came back and all is normal...So everything is as it should be and I go back on the 29th for my regular anti climatic OB visit...Talk to you all later.
