Undergoing IVF and just started her shots


This is so ironic. A friend who is undergoing IVF and just started her shots, just told me how many follicles she has… she has as many as I did from my single ovary. and she will end up with a BFP and I can’t!!!

Life is unfair.


Practically all women doing IVF are taking supplements of one sort or another ! These are supposed to improve egg yield, egg quality and embryo implantation , thus helping to improve IVF pregnancy rates. I have come across women who take over 10 different supplements daily - and I wonder how they manage to swallow so many different tablets, syrups and capsules in a day ! On second thoughts thought, it is not surprising , because the craving for a baby can make a woman move heaven and earth; which means taking umpteen supplements is not such a difficult task to accomplish. I have heard the following questions repeatedly from other women who are undergoing IVF treatment - What supplements are you taking ? Or can you recommend any supplement which can improve egg quality ? Is there any special diet which could help in increasing the chances of IVF success ? I wish I knew a magic supplement or diet which will make our much desired wishes come true! Women who are struggling to have a baby are desperate to find a solution for their problem and are ready to try anything which may help to make their dream come true. No one can pinpoint why a particular IVF cycle fails - and when there are no simple logical answers for the failure , anecdotal evidence and empirical therapies gain lots of importance in the field of IVF ! Patient pressure and competition among IVF clinics have forced clinicians to give nonfactual solutions to these questions. Bio tex clinic did help me during my IVF and the first time procedure was a success.
