Hi all…I’m new to the site…been lurking, but first time posting so bear with me as I still don’t know all the acronyms and terminology…
About me… TTC 3 years now. My husbsnd is 38…no sperm issues. I’m 34 and just found out AMH is less than .16 (supposedly the lowest amount to still be readable). We did clomid for 6 months and the gonal-f with two failed IUIs. Finally my RE did the AMH test and said we should switch to IVF, coupled with the fact that my husband was diagnosed with cancer in January. We quickly banked 3 rounds of sperm.
Anyways, we just did our first IVF cycle. I started out by taking Lupron as my RE believes that my pituatory gland wasn’t functioning properly. We then moved on to 375 gonal f a day, and ganorellix, followed in the evening with 300 menopure. We only ended up with 3 decent sized follicles and two smaller ones. We did the retrieval on 3/31 and 3 fertilized. All three were transferred on 4/3 and I’m now on my 2ww. I couldn’t wait so I POAS today and got a BFN. I am trying not to let it get to me but I really do not think I’m pregnant. I’ve had cramping everyday but no spotting which leads me to believe AF is around the corner. However, I’m taking progesterone which is delaying AF.
Anyways, if this doesn’t work, should I bother trying again with my own eggs or should we move to a donor egg? My husband is all for it but I’m bummed that biologically, the egg isn’t mine. I was always for adoption but he’s been kind of against it because he wants a child that’s biologically his…so I kind of am bummed that I’d go through all of this and it be someone else’s egg. Kind if silly I know.
I guess just hearing your thoughts and stories will help calm my nerves. Thanks on advance ! -Lacey
