Betty21 - how lovely to log on and see such exciting news! Well done!

Deb - Thanks. It just doesn't seem right to not have a period for ages, then start preparing for transfer from the next bleed, whenever that might be. Two questions:
1. Can I please ask when you had your daughter/your youngest daughter? I was looking at your signature, did you mean Lydia (lovely name) born Oct 2016?
2. What pill are you on? I've had oestrogen-only HRT (progynova) last year but it didn't seem to have any real regulating effect. The pill sounds like a good idea. I'll ask about that.

Beside the seaside - yes I agree about a bleed. My consultant thinks that if you've not had a period for a while, that you need a fresh lining when building up. He has prescribed microgynon. My plan is to take that after I get back from my holiday, so starting the pill in May. It's the combined pill.
I had my son James in July 2014, and my daughter Lydia was born October 2016. Thanks for your compliment about her name. I like it and think it's a pretty name. It was my great grandma's name but I never knew her so she wasn't called after her.

Deb - thank you, hopefully they will be a good clinic. It's really hard to know. But ED friends said they're having good success at the moment which is the most important thing, although as the doc there said I'm obviously a difficult case. I know that of course but it's really deflated me to hear her say it. I agree with you sister, being an aunt isn't the same.
Clarabelle - thank you, I just couldn't trust after all that, and I wasn't getting answers to medical questions
Albatross - have a look at egg donation friends website, they have verified patient reviews which are not all positive!
Betty - CONGRATULATIONS!!  :)


AFM - loads of paperwork to do, payments to make, and just general organising. Still got the cold / sore throat which is probably not going because work is too busy  :(

Hello All,
I am 56 years old and on an ivf journey.  I had my first round in September which was unsuccessful but plan to visit Cyprus again within the next few months.  I saw Dr Firdevs with Team Miracle. However, management has changed with TM and when I last contacted them they mentioned a Dr Vedat. Has anyone here had recent experience with either doctor as now I don't know which way to go. Thanks
Also, does anyone want to share their fertility journey with me as I really need inspiration to keep me going. Many thanks

Massive congratulations Betty - and keeping fingers crossed for your scan! Hope the baby dust rubs off on us all!
Irisa - sorry about the failed cycle, it is so disheartening but great that you're going again!
I'll set the ball rolling about my fertility journey! I wanted a baby before but didn't have a partner, so finally took the courage to try on my own. I went for a double donation cycle at LWC Darlington in 2012, fresh transfer July - BFN, had one frostie, so had FET October, again resulting in BFN. Wasn't satisfied with the follow up and decided to take a break from treatment, so checked out other clinics. Had a consultation with Penny at Serum, but had misgivings as she immediately advised me to have hysteroscopy, which I know works for some people, but wasn't necessary for me. I finally went to CARE Sheffield and had double donation cycle October 2013, amazingly was  a BFP - with 3 blasts to be frozen. My son was born July 2014. Wanted to try for a sibling, so February 2016 had a FET, again BFP and my daughter was born October 2016. Have two frosties frozen, so now in process of starting a cycle again in May. Hopefully I'll be lucky again, but I feel that as I have my lovely family, I'll not feel as stressed! I really know how lucky and blessed I am, and I hope everyone has the same luck. I used an egg sharer both times. I can highly recommend CARE Sheffield, but they will treat ladies up to 53.

Thanks for getting back to me deb. It's encouraging to hear of others success. I have to do further research into other therapies to support my next cycle. Have you or anyone else used embryogen or blastgen. I am considering, also acupuncture and reflexology.

Irisa - haven't used acupuncture or reflexology. I didn't use embryo glue during my first successful cycle and it worked, but was offered the chance to try it for my next cycle. I was told it might not make a difference, but may do, so I gave it a go. That cycle was also successful, but I'm not convinced about how successful it was as I had a previous successful cycle without it. For my next cycle, I don't think I'll opt for it, as I see no difference.

Hello deb, sorry for the delayed reply, I am still working my way around the site, sometimes getting lost.  Thanks for that info, I  am going to book adults before and I transfer and I have just heard about intralipids which I am going to research.

I didn’t do any extras such as blastgen , embryogen, pdg or embryoscope. I tried acupuncture a few years before my last cycle  but didn’t continue as ended up with swelling on my thigh.

I think I would not go back again but because we have a frozen embryo we might if we can afford it. It might be impossible for us but Iam still thinking about it. Hard when you think it might be a potential child. We are renting a house now so not sure if I will get the chance. Still getting joint pain at heels and knees so hoping that gets better. Was in great health during pregnancy apart from the gestational diabetes, no aches or pains so not sure what caused it. Dr said it can happen after having a baby.

Just had a recent birthday and a few years back I used to cry as it was another year and I always thought less chance at ever becoming a mother. It’s wonderful we can still become mothers at a later age.

Best of luck Irisa for your cycle no matter which doctor you choose.

Inaaya that’s wonderful. I posted to you on the Cyprus thread before asking how you are. I remember you had your baby August too. Iam so glad it’s worked for you. You will have your hands full but it’s amazing. Hope pregnancy with twins goes smoothly. X

I cannot imagine going so soon after having my daughter but I will see what happens in the next year. X

Was it a fresh cycle or did you use frostie? Mine is only frozen to December so need to decide this year.

Many thanks Clarabelle.  I think I will be going with Dr Vedat because of the Blastgen and Embryogen. I will keep you updated. It has been a blessing to find this site and be able to communicate with you ladies. It has given me a lot more hope. Thanks again :)

Glad you made a decision so you can go forward. Wishing you lots of luck Irisa.

Inaaya, did you get a surprise at the scan? My daughter is lovely and looks like dh, Iam trying to help her sit as still falling over. She loves making noises and hardly ever cries since a newborn. Mum says we are lucky to get such a good baby. Hope your boy is doing well, and the older ones. X
