Hi there,

I'm about to start the IVF after numerous medicated IUIs.


2 of the IUIs worked however one ended in a MMC and the other a chemical.


My last IUI was letrozole and some puregon...as we move to IVF, we are looking at the same protocol but with higher does of puregon. It would still be considered a min stim cycle.


My RE says there is a good chance I may not have any good eggs left however I always produce 3-4 follicles and last time 7. They also indicated that it might not be worth going to genetic testing however I'd rather go through testing than transfer something abnormal. 


I already have a healthy son at home so know I can get pregnant but it's all coming down to egg quality.

I'm just looking for a second opinion on what type of egg quality you see from a retrieval 40+. I have no other issues and have been taking all the right supplements for months + acupuncture.

Hi ababyforcarrie,

The post you responded to is from 2 1/2 years ago so you may not get a reply.  You might have better luck posting on in the over 35 forum or on a cycle buddies or clinic thread than here.  Fingers crossed for you!

I know the original poster in this thread. Her IVF resulted in a second healthy son.

I also started IVF at 42 and am currently almost 34 weeks pregnant with a baby boy.
