I am new to the website. It was recommended by a friend of mine who said she found the best support group when she was trying to conceive.

This is the sixth time I have been trying. I went through a mis-miscarriage, a miscarriage and a few implantation failures. I had tests done and at 46 years old, all is well with me apart from a low egg count. I have a very good lining and good oxygenation.

However, since April 2020, my temperature doesn't go down with the start of my periods. It has been working in cycles of about three/four months, then one cycle where it goes back to normal before it goes back up again and doesn't go down.

Has anyone ever experience something like that.

I noticed it started around the time I started taking fertility boosters advised by a fertility clinic. I don't know if this is related at all.

Low egg quality and aneuplodies might be a reason of mcs and implantation failture. You might ask your clinic to check your ovarian reserve and do karyotyping test.

I have had a blood test done showing a low egg reserve. It's the first time I hear about karyotyping test. I don't even know what it is...I have been told that clomid would be helpful in my case but it's trying to find a clinic that will prescribe it without redoing it the whole series of tests.

From what I know not all clinics do karyoptyping ( a test showing whether there are any aneuplodies (genetics issues) - one of the most common issues in mcs). What does your docs think about your low egg reserve and if it can be the reason why you cant get pregnant?

Hi CSF

Unfortunately at 46 years old, our cycles do get irregular in the way you are describing. I was considering a natural cycle frozen embryo transfer recently and monitored my cycle for several months to check feasibility of this. Whilst my periods were regular (26-28 days), I was not ovulating according to the OPK sticks so had to give up on the idea. Have you tested for ovulation?

Sadly, a low egg count is not the only issue we face in becoming pregnant as we get older. Irregular periods, and anovulatory cycles are also an issue.

Hi there, I have tested my cycle for 18 months and I do ovulate. I do not have irregular periods and I always have 26 day cycles - not a change there.The sticks and my basal temperature have all shown that there is not one problem there. I have decided to take a holistic approach: I have consulted someone who is qualified in herbal Chinese medicine and I also have found a "course" on how to make the right changes in terms of everyday habit and diet. Women suffering from repetitive miscarriages can suffer from undiagnosed celiac disease. I have decided to make the right changes to get all the right nutrients.
