Thanks! Only one because it's a government funded transfer and you are only allowed one.

Good luck! I was reading through the funding and I think I saw if you are 38+ you can transfer two. I know Dr Virro only likes to do one, but depending on how many blasts I get I might ask for two. At Hannam he always did more than one and that's when I was 32.

Hi Spencemom, how are you doing, did you have the transfer yet?

We just came back from a two-weeks vacation in Europe where we saw our family and friends and we had a great time. I am still debating whether to do the IVIG or not... if I chose not to, I could probably have the transfer in June.. so exciting and scary at the same time! :-) 


Autoimmune issues

Donor egg in Europe:

Oct 2014 - first donor egg IVF - BFP but beta dropped (Prednisone, Fragmin)

Feb 2015 - FET - BFN (Prednisone, Fragmin, Intralipid)

Oct 2015 - DEIVF (Prednisone, Fragmin, IVIG) - BFP but beta dropped... again

 

Moved to MFC - Dr Virro:

Oct 2016 - LIT 

Mar 2017 - donor LIT

Taking Plaquenil for high cytokines since Nov 2016

Planning next FET with dr. Virro

Hi Shanice

So yes I did the transfer but it didn't stick even after a positive test. So now we are doing it again this cycle hopefully with better results.

That's exciting for you! I have not had IVIG so I cannot comment on it. I did Humira and Intralipids. Good luck to you!

Hi Everyone.

I am new to this site and I am a patient of Dr. Virro.

I just finished a cycle of stimulation and found out yesterday that my cycle is cancelled as they could only see one egg. Its my first IVF. I have never gone through any fertility treatment. Its very disappointing and I feel like my worst nightmare has come true - something might be wrong with my egg quality and I might never end up pregnant unless I opt to use donor eggs.

I had two early pregnancies both ended in miscarriages and both took me around a year before I get pregnant.

I am turning 33 soon and I feel like I am running out of time.
