Just a very quick update as other family matters taking over - my mum has cancer and this has raised its head again
I started this thread as I felt alone in my quest to try and have a baby at the age of 45 with my own eggs and wanted to hear from ladies in the same situation - I have been overwhelmed at the thread and all of its contributors!
I think if you are over 40 you begin to feel the issues of trying to have a baby and a number of lucky ladies on here have had a child in their 40s and are now trying for their second or third? Therefore in my opinion I think we need to support each other with our quest but please remember as others have said there is a big difference between 40 and 45-46-47 so as long as we all appreciate that we have the same goal but it will be harder for us all the older we get - sorry to say
On the flip side we have 2 ladies on the thread who are pregnant
Beside - my clomid cycle lasted 38 days the ivf cycle lasted 35 and I am usually 25-29 days.
I have kept testing but still bfn but I did get the bloods back from my day 21 test today - progesterone 32.3 which means I did ovulate so I am happy that I seem to be back to normal - well I'm not sure if I will ever be described as normal but I am 😊 xx
Marigold - welcome - I am also in Scotland - highlands - I had a full ivf treatment at GCRM at age 46 OE which was not successful however I did really like them as a clinic and I would suggest you both go there or wherever you choose for full fertility tests before you do anything else as at least you would know what your options are x
I have also tried Clomid but was not successful and now seem to be back to normal using clear blue digital fertility monitor taking a mix of pregnacare Chinese herbs coq10 omega 3 evening primrose oil acupuncture and ttc naturally at the moment x keep trying and keep us posted it only takes one egg and one swimmer x
Ps you need to have day 3 fsh and lh tests and only day 21 progesterone if you OV on day 14 as your progesterone test should be 7 days after OV x
