Hi, I am 33 years old, FSH good at
I tend to agree with Caryn...When you have a clinic that you really like, and are comfortable with...it CAN be worth it to stay with them. Often times, the failures are not due to the clinic or staff....but just chance. However..there ARE clinics that DO carry higher success rates. You don;t want to be in a clinic where they treat you like a number..versus a PATIENT that they genuinely care about. The staff at MY clinic..though it is one of the most successful in NC..... treats me like FAMILY....and they KNOW me.
They may need to change your protocol some. My initial thoughts...and I AM NO Doctor..is that is your FSH is good..and your AMH (Egg reserve) is good..you should have had MORE eggs produced from your cycle..... based on your age. I was 37 when we did our first IVF......and we got 17 eggs. Transferred three..and all three took. We got 17 eggs again at age 39..but the quality was poor...and though we got PG...we miscarried. We also used ICSI..AND assisted Hatching. For us...it worked...every time.
IVF is a gamble..... and one we are all willing to take! Though the failurres are a HARD hurdle to overcome....it makes us MORE determined..AND exeprienced in what works, or doesn't for us. This group of women on this board will be a wealth of advice and support. We have ALL been there..done that. We cry for each other's failures, and Celebrate BFP's!!!
Keep us posted on your pursuit. We are here if you need us.
Yes, I had three cycles.
similar stories? I could just just (and I did) copy paste your story and do my minimal modifications. I was also in your shoes (after a textbook looking, but yet failed IVF#1) just around 1.5 year ago, and early this month my son turned 6 month old :) So here is our story:
We were both 34 when started TTC, FSH good, unexpalined infertility. SA checks out, etc etc...
