I am 40 yrs old and been TTC for 3 years (since I got married). With no luck. My RE cannot cycle me, or do IVF. All my cycles have been cancelled (except for one). Then we found out DH has low morphology and we can only get pregnant with IVF and ICSI. I am not a candidate for the IVF with my high estradiol levels, but I wonder if high estradiol will negatively effect a DE pregnancy as well. If so, we need to adopt. My day 3 estradiol has always been over 100. Its been as high as 150. Lowest was 104. But its always been elevated.

Hi,

I don't think your e2 levels are a problem with DE. They can be controlled medically. You should talk to your RE about DE.

Good luck:)

Thanks. That would be great if my E2 didn't interfere with a DE pregnancy.
