We are going to try one last IVF on our own (have shared twice before) and then we have no more money to have a full IVF.

We have talked about sharing again but my consultant suggests that i should concentrate on us.

How many would you do? 3/4?

Thanks

Caz Nox,

My goodness! By the look of your signature info you really have been through the mill  ^hugme^.
My DH and I are hoping to E/S for the first time but are waiting to see if I'm accepted (should find out on Friday ^pray^). We have been asked by the clinic how many times we would be willing to share but that's a difficult question to answer. We are struggling financially so this is our only option of treatment although I really want to help someone else now I know how crippling infertility can be. At the moment I would say that I would keep on sharing until I've got the two children I've always dreamed of but you don't know what's around the corner or how you'll be feeling physically & emotionally. Only you can decide what's best for you!

Very best wishes & positive vibes to you! ^reiki^

i havent started my treatment yet (consulation and tests on 10th june).  but i think that is a hard question to answer. at this moment in time i will say i will share as many times as it takes me to have my family, but i may think differently after the treatments.  if it took 10 times i would do it 10 times!

Hi Caz...

Its a hard one to answer.... I have never shared before but am just about to..... Althought I have had IVF already on my own... I can honestly say that depending on how many eggs I get this time... (I only got 7 last cycle on 150iu of Gonal F.) I will make my disicion then, my clinic will not under any circumstances over simulate... I was going to be on 300iu this cycle but they have dropped me to 225iu... And my consultant has said that the hope is to get 8 eggs.

I mean it all to do with your health and how you feel in yourself....

I have seen some women share 5 times are fine with it... And until I go through it I cant say yes go for it 10 times...

Yes is fine saying I can do it over and over but it takes it toll... As you know. I think doing this cycle on your own it a great idea as the consultant said... And IF ( and that a big if) it comes to having to es again... See how you feel at the time..

I hope you come to a desision.... Good luck hun  ^hugme^

I would love to be able to give you a straight answer to this question, but like the others have said this is our first share and I have no idea how I'm going to feel while going through it or after....at the moment I think maybe up to 3 times but that may change.

I wish you loads of luck whatever decision you make

xxxxx

I was hoping to have twins my first time so I wouldn't have to worry about doing an IVF again much less sharing.  After having a singleton I decided to stop when I max out (3 times) or when I have a second child whichever comes first.  I'm currently on my third try.  Lord willing I will have at least one more child.
