Hi garnet, Crystal explained it to me before as I didn't really know either and was in two minds whether to have it done or not. She explained it really well! I think basically it tells you whether your blood has a tendency to clott to readily and if so it can prevent implantation as you have lots of little blood clots on the surface if your endometrial lining. Ladies who have recurrent miscarriage have often tested positive for this and they think it could also be a cause if implantation failure, however like everything re scientific evidence is sketchy. Did I get that right crystal? I figured if I didn't get these tests done and my next cycle fails then I'll always wonder what if that was it. At least this way even if it all comes back negative I'll have done all I can to improve my chances. We have friends staying this weekend with their 9 month old boy, he's so cute and smiley 😃 I'm looking forward to a trip to the park and some cuddles tomorrow. xx
PC have fun with that wee one this weekend.
With Thrombophelia I'm really worried it's not only problematic with fertility but maybe it's also associated with stroke and aneurysm? My grandma passed from a massive aneurysm and her son passed at 55 from a massive strike. It seems so common in my dad's side of family, and I take after him very closely. All I know is when I go I hope it's quick! As for infertility, it'd be great if we could get passed this somehow too.
Hello everyone, I made it!!
I love sci-fi and walking dead is brill
Had bit of a sad day. Had bloods done at Gps before my af arrived to check no issues and thankfully she arrives but it turns out my fsh was 45 and lh was 35!!! OMG! Sent results to clinic in Prague and they say Yep perimenopause but actually I don't know what cycle day the fsh relates to as my cycle hasn't arrived when it was done.
Anyway, at least the clinic have said its not a problem for fet with donor egg embryos - except I will need my period to start to behind progynova and if it gets irregular again that will be a pain as I'll have to get a prpgesterone shot which my gp doesn't do problems problems.
But these results make me feel v old at 44!
So 2have aren't you going through your procedure soon! This month right! I just feel like something gonna happen real soon for you!
Thanks GarnetI was supposed to do a 'super ovulation cycle' starting with my AF (stims + chlomid). AF was supposed to come Sept 1. It still hasn't come. I've been taking DHEA and coQ10 to help with egg quality but if Idon't get AF there won't be any cycle and I'm not going to force it. I have till April to do this so will wait for things to get back to normal.
Hi Minno sending you sorry for that terrible number. Fsh is meant to be taken on cd3 and is unreliable so should be taken 3 times. AMH is always more accurate. But it is just a number and it really doesn't effect donor egg IVF. You can still have your kids, just not with your own eggies. Maybe by fluke some people might get pregnant but very rare and not reliable.
Youth is all about your attitude, my grandma was a kid all her her life. At Halloween she dressed up and came to my door, I didn't recognize her as a 4 year old and gave her candy. On her 4th door bell ring I shook my finger at her and told her off. She took her costume off and had a good laugh at my expense. Keep having fun and don't lose your spirit.
Thanks 2have. It's taken 3 months after the m/c to get my cycle back and I'm hoping it sticks around regularly to make things a bit easier for next years FET so don't lose heart. I think all the meds throw our systems out of whack and better to wait until your body recovers before trying again even though it's so frustrating!!!
I'm annoyed at my numbers but relieved it won't affect me doing the fet -I have two more goes potentially with four grade 1 blasts in the freezer. We'll see. I'm pretty fit and don't look 44 so I'm told but it's just the realisation that my natural fertility days are coming to an end. I'm very relieved I had my son at 32 otherwise if I'd left it longer that might not have happened -I guess I've just got old ovaries!! Xx
