Hello everyone, I hope you can help me. I am planning to make an appointment at the Lister in the new year and would like your help in identifying the doctor who could be most suitable to my case.

We are unexplained, I am 42 and my partner is 37 with some mild morphology issues. We have been ttc since 2004. After 3 failed IVF cycles at Create I moved to the ARGC and conceived first time there in 2007 and have a beautiful dd who just turned 3 2 weeks ago. I went back to the ARGC for 1 frozen and 3 more fresh cycles between 2008 and 2010, but had no luck. I have been on long protocols and had immune treatment at the ARGC. I always respond very well to stimulation, with 10-14 eggs each time. Fertilisation has also been very good. My latest hormone profile was FSH 9.6, LH 5.2, AMH 9.92, Oestradiol 70 pmol/l. I need to find a doctor who can get some good embryos, through the right stimulation protocol. Perhaps if any of you has a similar profile to mine (in her late thirties or early fourties, good responder, poor embryo quality or poor implantation even with excellent embryos) and was successful at the Lister with a particular doctor and/or a particulr protocol, I would like to hear from them.

Many thanks for your help.

Hi Assunta,

You're more than welcome on the main Lister thread :)  As for doctors, I use Mr Tolba but they're all generally v good and have a selection of approved protocols to use.  I think the embryologists are excellent there, and they're introducing IMSI (where they feel it's appropriate) in the New Year.  Dr Thum is the immunes specialist (unless you're sure what you need for that... I've only just discovered my immune issues so have been speaking with him about it).

Thank you Em and Jo for your replies, I will try the Lister thread.

Jo, I had thought about seeing Dr Tolba as I have read somewhere that he is successful with older ladies. How did you find his approach?

Many thanks again for your help.
