I hope its not too late to join this board. We’ve been dealing with our RE for a while now, but finally had an appointment today with the fertility clinic, and we will be moving forward with IVF
Age/SO’s Age: 37/36
TTC History (length of time TTC, previous IUI/IVF attempts, etc.): We’ve been TTC for about 8 months now, but I’ve got advanced endo, so we knew it was going to be a struggle from the beginning.
Known Issues: I’ve got stage 4 endo, and have had 2 laps to remove it. I also have recurrent fibroids and endometriomas, I also have low AMH (.92) and husband has low motility
IVF plan (vitamins/supplements, short or long cycle, genetic testing, fresh/frozen transfer, # embryos to transfer, etc.): I’ve been doing accupuncture for about 2 months, I will be on the long cycle due to my advanced maternal age, and we will be doing a frozen transfer along with genetic testing. Open to any suggestions on supplements I should be taking! I think my accupuncturist will be starting me on Chinese Herbs soon.
IVF Start Date: No start date yet, we are getting all blood work done and I’ve got to get an HSG done. Estimated start date is sometime this summer
For bees experienced with IVF – Any advice for first-timers?:
This is both my husband’s and my first time with all of this. I had an ultrasound today, and my Dr is concerned about the number of follicles I have. I only had 4 on the right, and she couldn’t see the left, due to my ovary being blocked by a 4 cm functional cyst. There is also some concern that my left tube could be blocked (even though it was clear during my lap 5 weeks ago), so she has ordered an HSG for further clarification. Anyone out there with a very low follicle count? I’m really nervous!!
