Hi ,

Does any one know about the soft ivf & where they do it , I asked my previous clinic about this & he said this is no good for you .I had just turned 41 at the time & had a ivf tx with 8 eggs collected & 2 fertilzed & 2 grade a put back in but got a bfn.
The reason I ask is that it's been in the paper this week & they are saying (older women particularly benefit because their ovaries do not respond well to high drugs,) does any one know if this is right . I just assumed this is rubbish because what my clinic told me ,if so how can the paper print this & give us hope ^bigbad^.

Yes this would be great ! because it's a lot cheaper & you could afford to have  a lot more goes .I would love to have others comments on this ^feedback^
                                            thanks a bunch

The article in the Mirror gives this information plus relevant links.

Here is the clinic mentioned in the article:

You may want to do a search on Fetility Friends to find others who are going to this clinic. I found this info.

Here are other women on ff who are discussing Soft/Natural ivf:-

I would be interested to see what their live birth rates are over 40. Personally, I really do not rate this clinic... just don't have a good feeling about it... but that is a totally personal opinion .. Basically, I have looked into create and the results from the Utrecht study and there is no mention of success rates over 40 which I would be interested in....

Just found this paper from the consultant director of Create Health. I don' think these results are impressive - age only goes up to 40 and need four consecutive goes to achieve a 32% success rate overall (this 32% included all age groups from 20s - 40 and did not break this success rate down into age as far as I can see).

See what you think:-

Once again, I really don't rate Create and don't think this is the best clinic for over 40s personally....

Hi

I an attending Create Health under Dr Nargund. I read an article tat she had written and also had a friend who had experienced hyper stimulated ovaries so this worried me. Anyway I am 42yrs soon to be 43, can't quite believe it and have recently undergone my first Natural, low stimulation IVF eventhough I had a BFN it was a relatively easy process, scans alternate days to monitor follicle growth, two injections for 3 days and then egg collection. Egg collection was particlarly an anxious time as there only 1 follicle which I was assured was normal but of course didn't know if there was an egg. There was, and a good embryo. I am definately trying this again and Dr Nargund did recommend this for the more mature woman! I hope this helps and good luck
