Four years later after IVF DID NOT WORK

Posted by Myrtle , 14 February 2018 · 5579 views

The reason I am here is because I am cleaning up.  I'm ready to throw out all my IVF needles and half used up bottles of medication.  I'm ready to move on.  We did three IVF cycles and I none of them took.  We never knew why.  I'm 46 years old now and there's very little chance of us conceiving on our own now.  We still might...


Three months after...

ivf, end, unsuccessful and 2 more...
It's been a few months now since I've been done with IVFs and I'm still around here a little bit.  I just feel like updating.  So to recap, we spent 5 years ttc our second child, 3 years doing IUI and IVF.  All attempts were unsuccessful.  So how do I feel now?  Not that bad, honestly.
During my last IVF in the Fall, I star...


End of IVFs for us.

ivf, secondary infertility
We finished our 3rd fresh ivf with another BFN last week.  We barely had it in us to do this 3rd one, but we agreed to do it and then that would be it and we would be done.  So now we are done.  I got acupuncture, took steroids, was pretty relaxed, and even quit coffee for this one.  I pulled out all the stops.  I have no regrets...


Two Week Wait

two week wait, 2WW, ivf and 1 more...
The two week wait is going okay.  I do feel as if the closer I get to my blood test date, the slower time is going and suddenly the more I am thinking about whether or not I might be pregnant.  I hate that I even entertain the idea.  It has been so heartbreaking every single time so far when I end up with a BFN.
After trying naturall...


Eight Embryos

ivf, embryos, transfer and 2 more...
I have survived my egg retrieval quite well.  It was now 3 days ago.  Every morning the clinic calls me with an update from the embryologist.  The first update said, 12 eggs retrieved, 10 mature, 8 fertilized.  This is a way higher percentage of fertilization than our previous cycles, and I must say my husband is super proud of this....


allergy to buserelin ???

Posted by Myrtle , 08 November 2013 · 2635 views
ivf, suprefact, buserelin
So I started buserelin/suprefact last Friday, so one week ago.  On Sunday I noticed some splotches on my upper thigh.  I didn't think much of it, since my skin is very sensitive and I sometimes just get red splotchy things and never know the why or where about them.
Anyways, the red bumps have been getting more pronounced and this morning...


So many drugs and counting the days...

ivf, injections, restless and 1 more...
I'm pretty sure my moods are being very affected by the ivf drugs.  I feel so drugged.  I feel very tired and yet there is my own anxiety down in there somewhere.  I started injections on November 1st, and since my estimated ER is Nov. 25th, I find my self mentally counting down the 25 days of shots.  I am really looking forward to Dec...


Moods during IVF cycle

ivf, depressed, long protocol and 6 more...
I have barely begun this cycle of IVF and I am already feeling extremely different this time around.  This is our third and final go, and I am quite relieved to be done with IVFs in the near future.  I have started the birth control, the dexamethasone, and the baby aspirin daily now for about 9 days, and I am feeling tired, sleepy, and I think a...


What to feel around pregnant women?

pregnant, pregnant friends and 2 more...
I have slowly been coming to terms with our secondary infertility.  My husband was very quick to adjust to the idea of having just one child, and fine with that.  I was not.  It's been almost four years of trying now, with various treatments, and this summer, I really started to feel calmer with myself.  Almost like a forgiveness to me...


Acupuncture first time- WOW.

Posted by Myrtle , 20 April 2013 · 1320 views

I did my first session of acupuncture yesterday afternoon.  Today- I feel like I took a valium.  I feel so relaxed it is amazing.  I am just trying to pull out all the stops for this third IVF.  The acupuncturist has worked with other women doing IVF and has had some successes so I feel pretty good about my choice....
