hey lucy

im not having IVF but i am 25(mid twenties now!!!) but i was 19 when we started ttc-there are quiet a few ladies on here who are early-mid twenties!

its nice to see someone having treatment so young as i got fobbed off for about 4yrs from having any thing other then clomid which didnt work!

take care

Hiya Lucy,

I'm Marie, and I'm 23, we've been trying since I was 17/18, I had my first IF treatment at 20, and my first IVF at 22. 

I was lucky to have a supportive dr. , who didnt descriminate me because of my age - I had all my testing done when I was 19, so we were very 'lucky' (for want of a better word!)   
I do get the comments ' you're young, you've got lots of time'  ::) but I've been ttc now for 5.4 years - why should I have to wait more time?! 

Nice to see some other young 'ens!

Marie xx

ey lucy. I have just turned 24 and dh is 25 we are having tx becuase dh had cancer and we r using frozen swimmers. The dr's have recently discovered that i have endo and pco we have had 6 iuis without success but have moved on to ivf ad we have egg collection in 2 days time. I have found that being fit, young and active has meant that i've had very few side effects
If you fancy a chat feel free to pm me.

Hi Lucy,
I will be 25yrs in April and our GP just sent a letter of referral to Kings collage hospital for me and my DH to start IVF.
We have been TTC for 3 years now, but with no luck. I am sure we are doing it right.. ;D
I have PCOS and my DH has low motility.
I was also worried about my age because i heard that you had to be 25yrs before they refer you, but that turned out to be a load of rubbish.

I hope every thing goes well for you.
Keep us updated because i am also worried about everything.

One last thing... how long did you have to wait before starting the IVF after getting your referral??

^goodluck^

Thanks wil know tomorrow how many have made it to embryo stage.Hope fully they're having a  ^hugme^  with dh's ^sperm^ ^sperm^ as we speak!!When they defrosted his guys they were raring to go so we only have to do ivf not icsi (more great news)
Dh has named all the eggs after the x men and has said that threre is enough for a whole fottie team and a sub!!!
We are hoping to have 2 put back on Friday pm..as you may know my eggs were left to get bigger for icsi so they are stronger anyway and popping them back 3 days after should make them stronger too!!
My friend scared me by saying they could divide and i could have quads what a thought!!!
