We have just done a cycle of own sperm / donor eggs, we got 3 blasts and all have been transferred with no successes. The clinic l was happy enough for the 1st transfer, thought we might have got more than 3 blasts though. For the 2nd transfer they seemed very apathetic about it all. There were only changes because l requested some changes e.g. increase progesterone and add Prednisolone.
It is fairly obvious we won't succeed naturally so we are weighing up another round. Im inclined to try another clinic who are more motivated and driven, the current clinic seemed to get quite checked out. They have been increasingly disorganised as well. They are aware the last transfer failed, l have asked to discuss changes for next time to assist us weight up our options. They haven't replied and l am not willing to chase them.

I switched clinics after several disastrous rounds with my Uk nhs one.
I went abroad as I felt european clinics seem to have more gusto behind them and are more focused on getting you sucess.

I went to Reprofit in the czech Republic .

Its your money and you need to throw it somewhere who are 100%committed to getting you your baby

Funnily enough we were thinking of Reprofit as an alternative…

We had the follow up appointment with our clinic.

They suggested:
-ERA, ALICE and hysteroscopy tests
-no change to our medication (we were 12mg estrofem and 800mg progesterone originally). Last transfer l suggested Prednisolone which they added. If there is a next time then l was going to say more progesterone (up to 1000mg?), Prednisolone again and clexane
-maybe stick with donor maybe change, it is up to us
-he ended the call with a chat about if we ever get pregnant then there is a 5% chance of miscarriage. Which was err super helpful and constructive. Thanks ???

Fairly disappointing. Not helped by him saying our embryo's were 4aa, 3ab and 3ac. We were told / sent an e-mail at the time they were 5aa, 4ab and 3ac. Now wondering if they lied about the quality of the embryos.

I was contemplating moving but after that meeting, l definitely am -assuming we actually do anymore IVF. I thought they were quite lazy answers and they should be looking at the whole picture. Of course both the things they suggest cost more money, rather than them having to expand any time or effort. I have a fair idea that a different protocol should be used and what that should look like, so should they. We have a consultation booked for early January with a clinic a friend of mine used and highly recommends.
