hello ladies,
I just failed my natural IVF cycle treatment because dr. couldn't fine an egg. She told me it happens sometimes, that the follicle is empty. But I read some info there is no such thing...
Have you ever experienced that?

Sorry to hear that dovkav, in standard ivf it is pretty normal to have empty follicles when it comes to collection but due to the level of stimms you produce a number of eggs so that you end up with at least a couple to use. So sorry to hear this.

I was considering natural ivf but I think the success rates are pretty low so I'd rather move to donor eggs xxxx

Dovkav- I am so sorry they couldnt find a egg and yes as Bugs said, sadly it can happen were a follicle grows with no egg inside. What is your next plan of action? x

Bugs- Are you thinking DE for next cycle or one more crack (no pun intended, lol) with your own eggs? we are going to do one more cycle with my eggs and god forbid if that fails we will defo be doing a DE cycle as can't waste my life feeling empty and living for tiny chances when know it will increase chances ten fold. Hard decision though as always wanted a part of me and my parents genes etc involved in me an dh's baby and obvs it would only be his genes but i adore him and i would carrying the baby so i am sure i would love it just the same x

I'm going to see what the new clinic think first if they think it's worth a shot with my own then we'll do that first but I think we're gonna pay for 2 cycles up front so at least we know we can move onto donor eggs if our own doesn't happen.

I feel the same I'm over it now and just want it to work don't really care who's bits get us there !!!

Yep totally with you guys all the way. The more I think about it DE is the way to go if this cycle doesn't work. Hopefully we three get our BFP this time round!!

Empty follicles is quite common or what it is eggs that won't come out. They just say it is bad quality eggs. How disappointing. I had that problem this time round as well. Only had two big follicles and only one had an egg

My final cycle with my own eggs will be in October estimated ER will be 8th October - please pray for me!!

Everything crossed for you unlucky, we're hoping our next cycle will be November as I think my new clinic likes to do a hystereoscopy first. Going to spend today typing up my previous cycles to send to the new clinic how depressing but exciting at the same time xxx

Unlucky and Bugs- EVERYTHING crossed for you both for your cycles later this year and i pray you do get to have your biological babies and that i do when we come to cycle again next year but if it doesnt happen we have HUGE chance of success at last with DE and i am sure we will adore our babies regardless and always be thankful to the donor xxx

Hi

Thanks for inviting me to join this thread. I do love the other one but it gets hard at times as everyone seems to be pregnant on there now or have success first time round (don't get me wrong i am pleased for them but is tough when you think it should be your turn). I am sat with a glass of wine which i know doesn't solve anything, i am not even a big drinker, but does numb the pain!!!!!

I have to phone for my review tomorrow. I hope it is quick but these things never are. I feel like a complete failure and so guilty i can't do this for my husband, although he says he doesn't blame me.

I go back to school on Monday where one of the teachers is pregnant with a man she has known less than a year (not that i am jealous or anything)!

I am expecting an awful period after being on this gestone. I would always do it as it kept the bleeding away and nothing else did but i am sure it will produce a heavy period!!!

The nurse bless her said keep trying naturally. I thought as if they won't even fertilize and divide with chemical activation.

Glad you set this thread up. Africa will know i am Heather from facebook but for everyone else x x x x

Heather- I am sorry u had to find your way to this thread but glad you are with us and we are all here for you. Life is so bloody unfair and if a glass of wine helps numb the pain why not. We don't get much release from this nightmare do we. Its ALWAYS there. I also feel like a failure too even though we know this is not our fault, as women we feel like we have failed when we can't manage something that thousands do every day, but we are all in the same boat xxxx
