Hi ladies
Anyone seeing dr.cheung at grace fertility in Vancouver?
I am. And waiting for my next AF to hopefully produce more follies next month to go ahead with round 2 ivf.
Me 40 DOR
Dh 44
I had a planned full tubal ligation (took both tubes out) when my last baby boy was born 19 mths ago through planned c-section sept 20.2011.
Me: have a 21 yr old son, 10 yr old daughter, 19 mth old son.
Dh: has a 22 yr old daughter and our 19 mth old son.

Antagonist protocol jan 2013' first and only ivf started (as we thought only one :() They got 5 eggs and none fertilized (icsi was not done as recommended, consented to, and paid for)
Next cycle will hopefully start (fingers crossed) feb or march 2013.

Feb 21/13- day 2 of AF. 5 follicles on one side and possibly none on the other..DOC keeping me on antagonist protocol but has added 3 days of clomiphine citrate. Something about adding a MOS protocol to my antagonist protocol. Clomid for 5 days 2 pills a day & on cd3 started 300 bravelle & 150 menopur shots. Us & bw feb 27. Cd6 angry as heck! ONLY 2 follies supposidly found on both sides now...wtf???Feb 27. Cycle cancelled Gggrr we will see for next month :(

March 22.13~went to day 4 ultrasound this morning expecting my cycle to be cancelled cause two days ago re wasn't sure if I had a large follicle or a cyst. It was really hard to drive 1 1/2 hours then wait..and wait. Anyhow, I couldn't believe it when he told me we are going ahead. I think I almost cried tbh. I have 7 follies at this point. He's keeping me on the clomid for 3 more days and then I start injections tomorrow cd5. 300 bravelle and 150 menopur. I definetly am felling much better this afternoon then I did when I woke up :)

March 25.13~5 days of clomid and 2 of injections. Out of the 7 follies (1~12, 1~11, 1~10, 1~8 & 3~6) he figures we only have a shot at the 3 large ones and the small ones won't catch up. Cycle cancelled again:( I'm so mad and disappointed. Not sure if I can do another month

April 16.13~cd2 ultrasound showed 7 follies but..at this point we have 2 leaders at 6-7mm and the others are 3-5. Clomid cd2-cd4 and 300 bravelle 150 menopur cd3 & cd4. Us/bw Friday April 19. Grow my little follies grow! I can't be happy till after Friday.

My beta is tomorrow. It's been a rather difficult 2ww. I've had period like bleeding since Thursday but have had 3 positive HPT since Saturday. So not sure what the beta will reveal.

I have done 2 cycles to ER (8 eggs total) January we had 5 and April we only got 3 cause I ovulated the day after trigger day and dr. Cheung new that trigger day cause my progesterone was High. First sign. He didn't cancel me and we lost follies in the 36 hours. Got only 3 eggs that time and did icsi on those 3. Total of 8 eggs And not 1 fertilized!!!! Both cycles. And he tells me i need donor eggs. My DH and I have a 19 mth old together. My eggs and his dperm are just fine, graces lab seams to be the problem. Sure hope your next cycle is a good!!! Fx fx

I'm sorry to hear that, will you be going to another clinic for a second opinion? When i did my icsi cycle i had about 16 good follicles but they only go 5 eggs of the 5 only 1 survived but did not culture to term so no transfer. I do not have any issues he said it was the protocol, as we switched over from UBC and wanted to stick with the protocol they gave us. I am trying to be positive this time round as it will be different, but is hard when i read another similiar situation.

Yes I'm sorry for the bad news from my end. I think his staff is awesome. The front end anyways. We had 7 follies last time got 3 eggs and none fertilized. It's so frustrating not even to have made it to transfer.
We will not be cycling again anywhere. We only saved enough to cycle once. But because his lab didn't do icsi in January (like paid and consented for) we hit a somewhat free compassionate cycle. Also he cancelled us two months in a row after another 1000 in meds each time.
Anyways, I don't want to be a downer on your up coming cycle. I wish you all the best. Please keep me posted on your progress as I will be very curious how it goes :)
Best of luck!
