I'm back again after 3 years break for multiple reasons, and hoping to start my donor sperm IVF cycle in Feb. As long as I am healthy, then the clinic can start treatment straight away and already have a donor matched to my husband.
The last time my fertility was checked was 3 years ago and it was very healthy and fertility was normal. Trouble is... I was 32 then, and now I'm 35.
So what I want to know is... has anyone seen a dramatic difference in their results for egg reserve / antral follicle count, or had any nasties come up in their uterine scan when previously all was well?
I know 35 is when things are supposed to decline but I really want to hear real life stories please.
I guess I should say I didn't do a fresh IVF cycle this time (we did a frozen cycle) so I don't know if my body would have responded in the same way or made the same quality embryos, but my labs were indentical so my assumption is I would still have had a good chance.
3chords, sorry to hear that. May I ask - was it a male factor issue or female in the first instance? My concern is that I've never had to worry before about me - and it's just bloody age and this magic '35' number that's causing me anxiety. So, if I had great fertility at 32 - will I be dramatically reduced at 35?
