Hi Im new to this site, looking for buddies to help me through the world of infertility.
Just about me, I had x4 Medicated IUIs failed. X1 IVF cycle resulting in 2 embryos and a daughter who is 5.

Im anxious to transfer the final remaining embryo, just looking for similar stories from others in the same Boat.

I have my RE review in 3+ weeks and hope to get started after that. So nervous and apprehensive last go for us as age is now against me at 41.

Looking forward to chatting,

Yes, join the cycle buddies board! I'm 37 with a 2-year old IVF baby, in the process of FET in an attempt at baby #2 :)

Sounds like your embryo is from about 6 years ago, so that's the age that counts! Best of luck!

Me: 37 DH: 45
I don't produce FSH, so no natural menstrual cycle. DH has reduced morphology.
Summer 2014 IUI (with first husband): cancelled after almost a month of stims due to too many follicles
Time off to divorce, get back on my feet, find a new hubby and get married again 💑
March 2017 IVF#1: ~70 follicles, 13R, 10M, 7F, 3B = 2 PGS Normal (both XY) - no transfer due to ohss
Sept 2017 FET#1: BFP, Beta#1 - 253, Beta#2 - 528, DS born 05/31/2018 👨‍👩‍👦
Dec 2019 FET#2: BFN
Changed clinic, planning March 2020 IVF#2 - postponed due to the pandemic
April 2020 IVF #2: ~30 follicles, 24R, 12M, 8F, 4B = 2XY & 2XX, all normal  heart.gif 
Sept 2020 FET#3: (one of the XX) BFP, Beta#1 - 161, Beta#2 - 519
