Welcome & best of luck with your transfer! Not sure if you've had the chance to find it yet but there's a 35+ section of the site where you'll find lots of stories from women 40+...and there's even active 50+ thread. :-)

Hoping this is your magic cycle!
It was long, awful & hard. We got very lucky and didn't run out of both emotional and financial resources. We saw some of the most beautiful of people in our lowest moments. Baby Girl arrived Apr 10/2018

Hi and welcome!  Are you at OFC?  I'm about to turn 40, and we are starting our first cycle of IVF/ICSI at OFC (male factor, but also low ovarian reserve so our Dr is going to 'agressive' route).  Good luck with your transfer!!


Me - 40, DH - 44, DD - 2 heart.gif

Male factor and DOR.  RE will have us do IVF/ICSI

May 2015 - Consent signed!  Now waiting on DH's sample to be shipped from abroad

15 July - The swimmers have arrived!  We are scheduled to start our first cycle in late Aug

 

IVF/ICSI #1: September 2015, Patch protocol (Estradot Patches, 400 Gonal-F, 150 Luveris, 0.5 Decadron, Cetrotide)

Estradot Patches 13-17 Aug

CD1 17 Aug.  We start stimming on 18 Aug!

Stims 18-28 Aug, trigger on 29 Aug

ER 31 Aug: 12 eggs retrieved. 

Fertilisation report 01 Sep: 7 eggs fertilised! 

ET 5 Sep: 2x 5 day blasts transferred, none made it to freeze.  Beta on 17 Sep!

Start Lupron 18 Nov

Stims 20 Nov-01 Dec, trigger on 02 Dec

Juliee1  - Good luck with IVF # 3!!! flow.gif 

 

I'm 41 and a patient at the OFC. I have had two losses but this is our first time trying IVF. We are also on the funded cycle and I  also had the Patch Protocol, everything the same as you except no Decadron.

 

lexiemarie03 - Good luck to you too!! The 2WW is so tough, I have been a mess and on an emotional roller-coaster ride of emotions. I have been reading the book "The Secret" and I have been doing fertility acupuncture during the entire process. It has helped me so much with the stress and anxiety during this process. I have a real hard time relaxing and I fall asleep during every session so it's amazing. Especially the day of transfer, my acupuncturists came to the OFC and I had a session before and after the transfer. The day of the transfer was such an amazing experience for me. I was relaxed and felt so happy and excited. My acupuncturist took all my stress away. It's not for everyone, but for me I love it, and regardless of the outcome, it made all the difference in the world. Geez…I wish I had an appointment today!

 

Egg retrieval was on February 29th

They retrieved 8 follicles, 5 mature eggs and all 5 fertilized (ICSI)

All 5 made it to day 5

2 blastocysts were transferred on March 5th, none made it to freeze

 

I just went in this morning for my Beta. Literally waiting by the phone and praying for a miracle!!!

Hi Brig 74, hopefully you will get good news today. Praying for you. This looks like an old thread, you should join us in the March 2016 IVF cycle buddies or look at the 35+ forums. https://ivf.ca/forums...66-ivf-ages-35/

 

Good luck!

Hello Ladies I had my first child using IVF In Colorado clinic and wasn't very happy with the prices and the medicine service. The nurses were very rude and I think they don't really care about their clients. My son is 5 years old now I want to have more children I'm only 35 and i still can stimulate my ovaries for IVF. But i don't want to do it in America again I was so disappointed and angry I can't even explain.

I'm considering Europe the prices there more reasonable but i dont know much about the service. 

Wish me good luck in my searches and good luck to everyone here
