Thanks for encouraging…I hope all things you think should be done my RE also thinks the same way.I think he is little bit overconfident. The questions you asked I really have no knowledge about those :(…As they don’t give any record of tests.neither they inform us about beta,progesteron n AMH.I don’t know what is micro cycle either …really sorry for that…No ICSI for sperm.DNA thing also we didn’t do. We are new to this n have really little knowledge…I think RE should tell about all these things to us.
I am little overweight.I do only yoga.no other activities.
n about embroys cell I got to know after googling things.after my 1st failed cycle I asked my RE,then he told one was 3 cell n other one was 4.
This time I didn’t ask (as I thought if again 3/4 cell I may have negative thoughts) he also didn’t inform anything.
Maximum no. Of embroys he can put is 2 as per govt law here.
He didn’t advice to anything.so I googled everything for 2nd ivf .I ate pinapple core n took full bedrest etc.
I think now I need break to get out of these failures.
The qs u have asked I will definitely ask my RE.
Thank u very much for support ,concern and your valuable time[/quote]
Lisa, it sounds like you definitely need a new RE. Remember, doctors are normal people too: some are highly competent and motivated and others think they are, but are no where close. Your RE is probably saying “I don’t know” to a lot of your questions because its easier for him not to have to answer.
I could be wrong about your RE, but mine did everything in his power to give us all of our numbers as well as made sure we understood them. He’s the kind of guy that will give you a hug before you leave his office, every time you visit. Having an RE that really cares can make all of the difference.
If you can, demand that they give you the information from all of your tests throughout both of your cycles. AMH is the big thing to know at this juncture.
Also, a micro cycle is a cycle where they give you less medication and retrieve fewer eggs. Women who are young and in ideal condition sometimes choose micro cycles because it is less expensive and they don’t want to have a lot of extra embryos left over. Micro cycles can also be used as a diagnostic tool to experiment before bigger cycles, too. Remember, a woman in ideal health can have dozens of eggs retrieved on a conventional cycle. Since you are young with no apparent problems, I wonder whether your RE made you do a micro cycle. If he did, you might want to go with a conventional cycle for your third attempt because you would get many more eggs to work with. With more eggs, your embryos could be allowed to develop to day 5, which would dramatically increase your odds of successfully implanting and avoiding miscarriage.
As for weight, it isn’t very important for older women over the age of 35 to be normal weight, but for someone your age, it is [I]very [/I]important. Being normal/ideal weight decreases the cost of medication, increases the chance of implantation, increases the response to stims (more eggs!) and decreases the chance of miscarriage. The best thing you can do right now after a failed cycle is to feel actively involved in succeeding on the next, and a good way to do that is to take up a dedicated exercise regiment and a good diet with lower calories and lots of vegetables with folate. It worked wonders for my wife and I.
I’m sorry to carpet bomb you with all of this information. Let me know if you have any more questions.
