    Geegg13 I think you're on the same cycle buddies thread as me. Our egg collection is Monday, from the scans I don't think we'll get anywhere near that amount, but hoping for a couple of good ones.

    Congrats geordiebunny!

    Hi Ladies

    I had treatment at MFS last year in May. Currently 32 weeks pregnant with a little girl. Can't fault the staff there x

    Hi ladies,
    We're also at MFS and have been very happy with everyone there. I sent the same initial email to both MFS and Care, and had much friendlier and more helpful responses from MFS. A good friend had ivf at Care and said they were great, but my instinct said to go with MFS :)
    Best wishes and good luck to all  ^fairydust^
    Xxxx

    Hi Ladies,

    I am with MFS now after being treated terribly at St Marys. Hopefully should be starting the month. Id be keen to know if anyone had a low AMH and also there views on this.

    My AMH was at 0.7 I have been on DHEA for 3 months now and I had my blood test results back Thursday and its now 7.5!! Still quite low but SO much better than it was!!
    It would be great if it went up some more. My AFC was 5 and 6 so 11 in total. FSH is great.

    Im taking 75mg of DHEA, pregnacare conception, Vit B compled and omega 3 cod liver oil.

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated so much. Good luck to all you wonderful ladies.xxxxx

    Katie, I'm currently 7 weeks after treatment at MFS. My AMH was 7.2, but my follicle count was good and the consultant said he thought I would respond well. In the end we opted to use my partner's eggs, which had its own issues due to a large ovarian cyst on one side. We got 7 eggs, 6 of which fertilised. It may be that you don't get the huge numbers that you read about on here, but its quality not quantity. Trust the staff at MFS, they do know what they are doing, and they will absolutely do what is best for your individual circumstance.

    Hi all, I have just turned 41 & will need IVF if any chance of conceiving. Will have to pay (due to age). Starting to research options - NW & abroad. Am looking at Manchester Fertility & CARE Manchester. Can any of you give me a ball park figure of what you paid per cycle? Appreciate that cost varies dependent on treatment IVF/IVF+ICSI, but would be interested to know of your experiences. Have seen the fee schedules on the relevant websites - but its so confusing! For example - with normal sperm, do they recommend ICSI? Will obviously speak to relevant clinics directly but would appreciate your input. 
    Thanks!

    Hi Katie, my AMH was measured at 7.3 about a year ago, and I got a BFP over Christmas (DIUI). Don't know what my FSH was/is, and I never had a follicle count done (they were going to do that if we moved onto ivf). I was assured my low AMH wouldn't be a problem for natural cycles, and was simply an indication of the level of drugs required if we moved onto ivf, but they didn't seem to view it as a major issue, just that we might not get loads of eggs. But like Coldilox says, it's the quality that counts. I hope that helps x

    Coldilox, great news!! Congratulations!! Really happy for you both 😃 wishing you a happy and healthy 8 months XX

    carom, we didn't have ivf/icsi so I can't really say how much it will all cost, but I believe the level of drugs required also affects the cost. We were quoted approx 5k for one go at icsi using donor sperm. I think icsi tends to be used where there are sperm issues (low count/motility etc), and ivf with normal sperm. However, as we were using donor sperm, which had been frozen, we were told we'd have to use icsi, although the reason wasn't explained. Good luck making your decision. I did find MFS were always quick to reply to my many email questions! x
