Hi everyone! I have been MIA because I have been hanging around "ivf support advice and friends" during my ivf #4. Well sadly its another bfn for me. (see siggy). So my question is, if you already had success with ivf how many rounds did it take before you had success again? I had success on my 3rd fresh cycle since then 2 fet bfn's and 1 fresh bfn. I am getting discoursed. Do you think there is still hope for me? I have my consult on wed and I have so many questions.......

I'm sorry #2 hasn't worked out yet for you.

I second what the PP said about checking out your uterus after baby #1...have you had a hysteroscopy? My RE is doing one soon before I start IVF #2. He said he just had a woman in today where he found some old placenta attached to her uterus from 2 years ago! He said an embryo would not like that. Maybe you've already done that....just an idea. Hang in there....good luck at the consult!

Sorry to hear about your BFN! That sucks!! I can only imagine how frustrated you must feel. I agree with PP about the tests that your RE has run. Have they checked your FSH recently? Mine was elevated at age 31, which totally changed the protocol they used for my IVF (which resulted in Madeline). If they haven't done that, they may want to check. Also, ask about checking thyroid and
