Thanks!

Yeah we are going to do ICSI since we had such a low fert rate. I may see if they want to put more than one in as well. I'll leave it up to the docs to decide that...i'm kinda game for anything.

This process is a rollercoaster AND expensive. I was saving for a long time for something...guess this was it! LOL

I had a good cry and now i'm better. The process is not too bad and I don't have too many crazy assignments due in the next 3 weeks. I think we are going to jump in and try for October. I have a good feeling the fertilization will be better, and I am thankful I know the process and I feel way less anxious about it.
This process makes me more confident that I can handle things I thought I couldn't. It's a good feeling.

P.S. Keep me updated. Let me know if you want to and I can continue on this thread for when you transfer. Either way... It's nice to have partners in IVF!

So glad you are charging ahead! We had great fertilization with ICSI (91%)! We are doing PGS so it is a requirement so that the embryo isn’t contaminated by other sperm’s DNA.

It sure is expensive...and the expenses just keep adding up! Glad you have money saved to help.

And it’s all totally worth it to make your dreams come true!

I’ll keep you updated! Keep me posted too!!

DOR TTC Need to stay positive!


I started Gonal and Menopur 225iu this month, and am on day 10. Unfortunately I only had one follicle grow significantly and produce 1 egg, and they changed my IVF cycle to an IUI for this week I have DOR and need to hear some success stories! Good luck to everyone!
