    I have been reading all your threads and posts from afar, and decided it was time to jump in boots and all - as all the best advice I have found so far is from people like you who have been through it all. I am 34 and have just had my second cycle. My DH is 50, and had a reversal that did not succeed. so they did a retrevial and got great sperm. So I did my first cycle with all the drugs - Gonal F etc. I had massive follicles, and loads of them, so they put me under a general for retrevial. They got 15 viable eggs and we ended up with 6 viable embryo. They put a 3 day one back fresh, but I had loads of pain and they think I had cysts that burst. Despite that I got a BFP on dpo14 with a rdg of 80hcg. then 4 days later it dropped to 25 and they told me I would lose it. I miscarried a week later. Then they decided to do a natural FET, because I am so young etc. I also did acupuncture to help. they put back a 5 day old blastocyst. 3 days after they put it back - I had some spotting, the nurse put it down to implantation, but they put me on progestrone pessaries just to help. then because of easter etc, i did a bt on 13dpo, 9 days after the transfer and had an hcg of 6, so they nurses said very unlikely this one will stick, so I have mentally decided this one is over, and trying to figure out what to do next. AF has not yet arrived and I am now 16 dpo - but the nurse said not to get hopeful -the pessaries would be stopping it. I did another BT yesterday to confirm BFN - but won't know because of easter till tomorrow. The nurse has said to discuss with specialist - next cycle - should we try natural again? it appears the embryos are implanting but not holding - so maybe try colorado? she also mentioned doing a simulated cycle maybe, or assisted hatching? Maybe monitor bloods again this cycle - but not sure if I will LH surge properly. I don't want to wait another month - I want to get in and get it done..Lots of questions - and you guys seem to have the best answers - what are your thoughts for me?:shrug::shrug:

    Hi Stillhoping. Welcome to BnB :wave:

    I'm afraid I don't have any specific advise, but you may want to cross-post in the LTTTC section. A lot of the ladies there have been through similar procedures and may be able to offer more advice.

    Good luck to you. Hope your stay in TTC is short and sweet.
