Hi Elza,

Welcome to our world. You,re on track, feel free to ask questions and in that way, you can actually learn from others experiences.
For me, i think Eugin is a bit crowded, considering your departure point, we have someone from Australia here too n am sure she will advice u better when she reads your mail. CZ and Greece is popular in this tread and good results are comming in. Take your time to evaluate, and the choice is yours, Goodluck

Hi Eliza,
I am also from Australia and going for DE at Serum in Athens, Greece in February. I am using my IVF specialist here to organize the drugs I've had to take beforehand in consultation with Serum through Ruth who you will find on this forum. If you go to the Greece section you will find a lot of women raving how great Serum is.

Rosie - sorry to hear your news.  Good luck with your next cycle.

Eliza - I can highly recommend Gennet Clinic in Prague for their professionalism and also ease of access not to mention great value for money!  I am biased as we were successful there on our first attempt as you can see (below).  Best of luck wherever you decide to go.

Hi Everyone


Thanks for the support


I  have now had 7 cycles of IVF, 2 with own eggs and 5 with Donor eggs, I have had 2 pregnancies both Miscarried at 6 weeks, and just before we started  IVF a  natural missed miscarriage at 8 weeks, so Im getting a bit exasperated!
I was 40 when we started the "trying for a baby" journey I'm now 45.
If it was up to me Id probably stop as Im lucky to be a mother to 3 grown up kids.
But I so hate to fail, so part of me wants to carry on just to find out what the hell is going on and why cant I now have a baby when I could before??!!
Stopping isnt an option for my DH, he just wants a baby of his own, so I think its surrogacy for us now.
Im also having tests to find out whats going on, we go back for the results 2nd Feb.
The money we have spend it kind of crazy....you kind of think Golly should we give up now? and lose all that money and still have no baby?, or just keep going.?
 I  may have already found a surrogate that we at meeting up with on 24th Jan, she's a lovely young woman, and fingers crossed she may go ahead if it all goes well,.
I have had an idea that may work out!!
What do you think to this plan ladies!!?
 I am going to await the outcome on all the tests on me and hubby to check all is ok. If all comes back ok, I am going to go back to Russia for one last
try...with the surrogate!
So if it doesnt work out with me, hopefully it will with her.!
keeping fingers crossed this plan may work!!

Lily,
 
What will you do if you need clexane?  It seems to me that could be a potentially important part of the jigsaw for you?  I really think you should investigate further with a specialist who can advise you on either strictly monitored anti coag or an alternative to clexane, e.g. trental or fragmin.  I don't believe you actually confirmed whether your reaction was to the clexane and whether anything could be done about this if it was?
 
I agree that you really should get some basic recurrent miscarriage testing for you and DH asap.
 
Daisy

Hello again Everyone,
Thank you for your kind comments and advice.

Malabar Girl, great to hear from you.  I'm wondering we may be neighbours, do you live in Malabar?  How very exciting you have a bub on the way.  Such lovely stories give me so much hope.  I think you mentioned you went to Greece, did you go to Serum?  Do you remember the approx cost? Also, which IVF centre are you using in OZ.  Would really appreciate some info.

Hi Oceana,
Thank you also for your info, I think you are using Serum/Greece, Where abouts is it?  is it in Athens? Good luck with your cycle,sending you lots of baby dust.

Hiya Daisy


Clexane???....eeekkkk!! never again.....!!!!


I have had 2 blood tests done, one checking antilipids?? and the other anti thyroxine???
DH also had Karyotype test done, we get results back in 3 weeks.
Doc also said I should lose weight if I was serious about trying again ( BMI over 35) ( but it always has been and I have got 3 kids Doc knows this!)( bloody hell!!)
 He said after we have results of bloods, I should perhaps consider hysterscopy ( general)
 so yes,  agreed, it is best to see whats been happening to make me have 3 M/C, doc said to discount the first M/C, as it was with my own eggs and was conceived naturally and was a missed M/C and is very common at my age with own eggs.
 He said the other two M/C could have  just been bad luck as the sample size wasnt big enough to draw conclusions, but neverthless was wise to exclude the basic issues that may be causing probs, hence the tests.
so we shall see.


 I have no idea if my reaction was actually clexane or something else ( or a combination of all the drugs) its very difficult to know. All I know is the combination of that protocol was not good for me.... I am still only just getting over it, Im still having post traumatic stress and flashbacks it was so horrid.
I was taking, Estradot, Progynova, crinone, clexane, aspirin, prednisolone, Vit E, folic, iron.


Previously I have taken, estradot, progynova, crinone, aspirin, vit E, folic, iron- this protocol I have taken many times, so it was obviously the Clexane or the prednisolone or a combination of them both??? it would be difficult to know now.
 I'm inclined to think its clexane as I take prednisolone for asthma alot, and Ive never had any problems with it, so Thats why I have concluded it must be Clexane, its a process of elimination from what Ive previousy taken.


Anyway all will become clear!

Hi Lilly
I understand what trauma is in this frequent occurancies as i have gone thru this too. I have just had a hysterocopy to eliminate doubts and now about to eliminate prediselone for the next transfer. Why not try hysterescopy? I believe we can still achieve a life pregnancy since we,ve had BFP,s, it,s possible that there must be a little error somewhere, somehow, but we must try to identify it.
I,ve also done antilipids and anti thyroxine analysis and they all come back clean, so my next cycle will be focus on the drug regime changes.

Well, lets keep our fingers cross for the next transfer ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^
