My<br />name’s Leah. I’m 45 and my ovarian reserve is decreased.<br /></p> <p>I’ve already undergone one cycle of ivf and it was unsuccessful. For the second attempt I was only got 8 eggs, 6 of them were AB, Of those, only 3 fertilized and of those 3 only 2 were of good quality. It's my last chance to have a baby with my eggs. Today is my 10dp5dt and I’m very depressed, cause I did a home test and it showed nothing! If this time it will be bfn, I have to move to egg donation. I can’t believe I won’t have the possibility to have my own child. Why is this happening to me?<br /></p> problem concieving concieving, infertility 34 4 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7501564 7501564 First egg donation round.

I used to read different forums and basically i found out about the process of in vitro fertilization but still can't pull myself together and feeling anxious about what is to be. Last week I signed a contract with a clinic for 5 IVF attempts with donor eggs. Because og early menopause I became infertile at 35. Unfortunately I couldn't have children before and the reason is pretty sad - my career. Now I realize that I achieved all I wanted but still I'm not happy enough. Please don't blame me for that. <br />My question is about my stimulation. It's not actually a follicle growth stimulation as I'm using donor eggs but my lining is too thin and I need it to be at least 10mm to move on. Has anyone faced with this? How much time does it normally take to have a thick enough endometrium for embryo transfer? And the process of transfer itself, did you have any side effects? The clinic I'm with performs 5 day transfer but I know that lots of clinics have even 2 and 3 day transfer and I'm confused, which method is better?<br />Thank you in advance x &nbsp;&nbsp; question 11 4 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7497259 7497259 The worse happened... 2017-04-24T11:07:21Z 2017-04-12T10:28:20Z Leah H http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9030482 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11047227/photo_medium.jpg leah_hogan Hello!

I was diagnosed with ovarian insufficiency. The doctors say there's too few follicles growing in my ovaries. Besides those that I usually have do not develop to the state to release a mature egg. In addition to their not proper functioning they do not respond to the stimulation either. So, I have no another choice but use donor egg in this case. I've already looked through a lot of information about different clinics that deal with the issue but still have doubts. I'm happy there is a place like this one where I can get useful advice.

I mean is that really damaging to your health or maybe it is all very individual? Or you wouldn't advise it to anyone?&nbsp;<br />well, I am just thinking about the contract to conclude I have 2 preferable options: 1. 5 attempts ivf contract with the refund in case of 5 BFNs and 2. 2 attempts ivf with the transition to surrogacy.&nbsp;<br />I think &nbsp;that I might get advice for the local fertility specialists but I would like to know the issue before.&nbsp;<br />Thank you a lot! question 90 7 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7424287 7424287 Just need your advice 2017-04-23T19:52:24Z 2017-01-18T09:48:35Z Kathrine http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/8899068 https://www.gravatar.com/avatar/354bc91b0adb0316c2558e4556ab5767?d=identicon&s=55&r=PG kathrine_ca0gd94l80yln Hi, everybody. I decided to write here because I need your help. I’m 37 years old, and I suffer from early menopause. Actually, I started to have problems with my periods 5 years ago. Everything started with short delays, and 10 months ago was the last time I had my periods. I’ve passed all possible tests, and my gyny diagnosed me with early menopause. Two years ago, I married a very good man. We love each other greatly, and we want to have a child. As I’m not able to ovulate any more, the doctor advises us to try egg donation. However, this procedure is very expensive in the place where we live. We decided to go to Ukraine and try our luck there. We contacted one Ukrainian clinic. The name of this clinic is Biotexcom. My husband and I decided to choose this clinic, because we’ve found loads of favorable feedbacks about this clinic. However, the things were quite different when came to Kiev to meet the clinic’s representatives.... Firstly, we didn’t like the way we were received. When we came to Ukraine, we were met by the translator and driver at the airport. The clinic supplied us with the apartment and meals, and it was really nice. Nevertheless, when we came to the clinic, we were unpleasantly surprised by the way we were treated there. Firstly, the clinic was located in a private villa overcrowded with visitors. There wasn’t even a vacant place to stand. The clinic’s administrator turned to be a very unfriendly lady. We heard how she had a loud arguing with one couple, and it was a little bit shocking.... The clinic was really overcrowded with visitors, and each couple required nearly half an hour to consult a doctor. We had to wait nearly two hours before the doctor was ready to meet us. Overall, we liked this fertility specialist, but during our talk her phone rang several times, and she answered to both calls. We visited another clinic in Kiev. Its name was Nadia. The things were quite different there. We were met by a courteous administrator, and the doctor was extremely soothing... However, the clinic was empty. Now we have to decide which clinic to choose... Frankly speaking, I liked the second one, but it was sooo empty. Bitexcom representatives can’t organize their work properly, but they do have patients... question pregnancy pregnancy, fertility 30 11 2 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7500856 7500856 my last steps in surrogacy journey 2017-04-23T18:59:44Z 2017-04-18T11:20:29Z LauraTa http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/9048614 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11054440/hem_dalshe_rebenok_tem_krepche_vash_son_kak_spat_s_rebenkom_medium.jpg laura_tazzini Hello everyone<br />I'm new to pregnancy org and I regret I didn't find this community before. I was reading threads posted here and thought why not to create my own one. I hope you don't mind to see another success story. Well, my journey was pretty long and still it's not over but I'm close to the happy-ending. After 2 failed IVFs with my own eggs I decided to start egg donation program abroad. Unfortunately, my body decided not to give mte such opportunity. I was diagnosed with hypertension and this could cause difficulties throughout pregnancy. no need to say that I was in despair. I was meant to live a childless life with my lovely husband and it was not as I planned. Lots of difficulties were on my way to be a mother. My husband was cheating on me because I wasn't no longer attractive to him. But it's in the past.<br />We found a clinic which deals with surrogacy in the country where it's lega for foreignersl to have this pocedure done. Today was meant to be the day when our surrogate mother should deliver our little miracle but we are still waiting. Everyday she has ulttrasound and everything is fine. so we have to wait within a week although it can happen any moment. I'm very nervous now. I just can't wait. To be honest I need your support. I need to know that everything will be alright. problem pregnancy pregnancy, infertility 10 6 1 comment http://m.getsatisfaction.com/topics/7482221 7482221 being pregnant after 4 miscarriages 2017-04-21T10:31:50Z 2017-03-22T14:20:51Z Grace Evans http://m.getsatisfaction.com/people/8980829 https://d2r1vs3d9006ap.cloudfront.net/public/uploaded_images/11044923/pregnant-woman-vector-392270_medium.jpg grace_evans_e5tke1093o069 Hello,&nbsp;<p> I experienced 4 miscarriages in my life and I want to say it is very hard for every women.<br /> Every single day was like a nightmare, I couldn't accept my misery and helpless.
