Hi girls some great success stories here well done.

My story:

Me: 27 DH: 30 DS: 2.5

Endo found when i was 17 was told had extreamly bad scaring and it would take me a while to fall pg. Been with my DH since i was 17 and never used any protection and after 7 years we finally fell pg with DS naturally.

TTC #2 for over a year and because of history was sent to FS at MIVF had lap and Dye done Dec 04 discovered serverly blocked tubes and FS said that he was supprised that my DS had even got through. Next step IVF.

Down Reg full stim cycle
Started pill in January 05
Syneral Spray Feb 05
Gonal F 112.5iu (low dose becasue of age and natural pg)
Response 14 eggs collected
12 fertilized 2 trf @ day 2 10 in freazer

Kaysie responded in other forum, saying....

Mine isnt all that interesting ( which is a good thing)....

TTC 1# 4 years.... Put on clomid while waiting for tests to be done. After Hysterosalpingogram was diagnosed with unicornuate uterus. THen I had Laporoscopy that showed that the one tube I had was kinked, so we were then told that our only hope was IVF...

SO my 1st cycle in June 2003 had to be cancelled because my hormone levels werent right.

my 2nd IVf cycle in July 2003 ended with my DD....

Sorry if that doesnt help much. Because my problem was not to do with hormones and just structure, the IVF is more successful.

Hi girls

Well my story is we have been trying 6yrs with unexplained infertility, and been to natural doctors, natrapaths and then finally to a fertiliy clinic in April 2004 (our last resort)
1st IUI - BFN - June 2004
2nd IUI - BFN - July 2004
Then we moved onto IVF
1st IVF - Puregon injections
- 9 eggs
- 7 fertilized
- 2 made it to 5 day transfer (blasts)
- put one embryo back in October 2004  
  it was a BFN!!!!!!! sad.gif
We then decided to use our last frozed embryo (a natural cycle - no stims)
when it thawed it went from a B grade to A grade and finally in November 2004 we got our first ever BFP!!!!
and im going well and due in 9 weeks original.gif We are the happiest ever!!!!

Hope my sharing helps original.gif

Hi There

Here is my stats

1st ATTEMPT

Type of cycle - Ovulation tracking
Drugs - Gonal F at 37mg
Response - 2 eggs at 13mm + 1 at 11mm plus smaller ones
Support post O - 2 x progesterone per day
This cycle resulted in BFN

2nd ATTEMPT

Type of cycle - Ovulation tracking.
Drugs - Gonal F at 75mg.
Response - 2 eggs at 19mm + 1 at 16mm plus smaller ones. (I was not aware of the 16mm follie untill after it was confirmed we were pg with triplets)
Support post O - 2x progesterone pessaries per day untill 12 wk of pg.
This cycle resulted in BFP & triplets are due 11/10/2005

My diagnosis was - 1) I was not producing mature follicles/eggs at O & my cycles were too long averaging 42-48 days. & 2) low progesterone after O (usually around 30-35)....

We had also tried 4 cycles of O tracking W/O drugs thru our clinic prior to starting on the Gonal F.

Me - 28
DH - 28
TTC since - Dec 2003
Lap - Oct 2004
BFN - Gonal F 11/2004
HSG - Dec 2004
BFP - Gonal F 2/2005 (triplets due 11/10/2005)

I would just like to encourage everyone to continue posting your BFP Success Stats as they keep us feeling positive and hopeful.
So as you graduate with a BFP post your secrets of success they could help the rest of us still trying hard to achieve.

Hi ladies,

I'd love to share my story with you'all.  I don't really talk about it except with trusted friends however I know the birth of my daughter was a great inspiration to keep going on IVF for my 2 girlfriends going through it.

In '94 after 14 months of trying we discovered we were medically infertile and our only hope was IVF.  After 17 attempts and 1 M/C (that was heartbreaking!!)
we concieved our daughter in March '02.

BFP Cycle Stats:
ICSI, FET, Down-reg Colarado C*cktail, 2 2 day embryos transferred. I eight cell -lost 1 cell at thaw, other 7 cell no cell loss.

This was my 2nd cycle with a natropath (specializing in fertility treatments) and my first with Colarado.

I had implantation bleeding prior to B/T for both pregs, that's what the reakon it was? Who knows! With our DD preg I also had spotting at wk5 and wk6.

We had another FET in April'04 basically same drug stuff, no natropath 2 damn dear! Bono Fide Nothing!

One of my girlfiends, mentioned in the first paragraph said to me she was rapt to hear I was preg b/c she felt it gave her extra hope and that's why I'm sharing.  After nine years of crap it pulled thru for us and sometimes it was only sheer will and determination that keep me going.  My advise for what it's worth is exhaust every avenue, ask a million questions, even really stupid ones if it makes you feel better and more informed.

Take it easy
Jules

Our story goes as follows:

Me at time of BFP - 28
DH at time of BFP - 34
dx - endo & mf (low morph)
7 clomid assisted cycles - all BFN!
5 IUI cycles with clomid - all BFN!
Two laps - Oct 2002 & Feb 2004
1st ivf cycle - started Nov 2003
Drugs - pergonal, clomid, progynova & cetrotide
Eggs retrieved - 5
Number fertilised - 3 but one stopped dividing
Number trfed - 2 on cd2 (ZIFT trf due to slow cleavers)
Prog pessaries to beta day - ended in BFN!!
2nd IVF Cyle - started April 2004
Drugs - menagon, fertomid 50 & progynova
Also increased amount of protein in my diet as well as drinking wheatgrass (ahhh the things we try!!)
Eggs retrieved - 9
Number fertilised - 7 but one stopped dividing
Number trfed - 2 blasts on cd5 (embrologist was soooo impressed by the quality of my embies she only wanted me to trf one. Our clinic does not have good FET rates &, as such, does not freeze the remaining embies. They do however monitor their progress further - of the 4 embies left, 3 made it to blasts of which 2 went on to hatch!)
Prog pessaries to beta day - ended in BFP!!Beta was 363 & then 2403 four days later!
Scan at seven weeks showed singleton! Now proud mummy to almost 6mth old little boy! (Pregancy very normal, baby born by emergency c-section because of fetal distress).

Good luck everybody!!

Love
Jenni

Hi Robyn
Congratulations! Its such wonderful news... I have similar problems to you, although I don't have ovarian cancer... but I do have endo and one ovarian working properly. Can you give me any suggestions as to how you looked after your body, say did you do something specific with your diet, or had a strict exercise regime.. Obviously you can see I'm trying to get some idea of our to prime my body for the best possible chance of conception.

And there seems to be so much waiting with endo. I had my first stimmulation cycle (unsuccessful) about 6 weeks ago and now have to wait for 2 periods to let my body get back to 'normal' before I can have a 2nd stimmulation.

Did you go through something similar?

Hope you can help.

I am currently pg (9wks 3d) after multiple attempts at assisted conception. Here is a summary and I'm happy for people to pm me with any questions:

May 04
IUI Clomid/No LP support
3 follicles/Spotting 10DPO - BFN

June 04
ICSI #1  Syneral/150 Puregon/1x Pregnyl Injection
2 days after transfer 3 eggs/3 embryos
2 transferred at day 3 / 1x frozen
Spotting 10DPO - BFN

July04
FET #1 Embryo didnt survive thaw

August 04
ICSI #2 Syneral/350 Gonal-F/1 x Crinone gel daily from transfer  
15 eggs/8 fertilised/3  embryos  remaining at transfer (2 x 8 cell and 1x 4cell transferred at day 3 with embryo glue)
2 x frozen (6& 7 cell)
Spotting 10 DPO - BFN

September 04
FET #2 1x pessary daily from transfer
1 embryo transferred at 3 days - assisted hatching and embryo glue used
Spotting 12 DPO - BFN

November 04
ICSI #3 Syneral/300 Gonal -F/Cardipan, Prednisone and Crinone gel daily from ovulation/1x Pregnyl injection post transfer
10 eggs/3 fertilised/2 remain on day 3 and transferred - assisted hatching and embryo glue used.
Spotting 12 DP0 - BFN

Feb 05 ICSI #4 New Protocol
From CD 3 - 400 Gonal-F/Orgalutran injections/
Ovidrel for trigger/1 x Cardipan, Prednisone and Crinone Gel daily from EPU
10 eggs/9 suitable for injecting/7 fertilised.

Proceed to blastocyst stage.

On day 5 there were 3 blastocysts and 3 morulas. 2 x blast transferred (and hatched) /1 frozen (morulas not frozen)
Spotting 9-10 DPO - BFN

May 05 - Lap, D&C and Endometrial Biopsy. Lap and D&C clear but biopsy showed that while we had always been diagnosised as male factor only I appeared to have a delayed response in the receptivity of my endometrium, meaning that when embryos were being transferred, conditions may not be at there ideal for implantation.

May/June 05 IUI #2/FET #3  
From o 4 x pessaries daily/4 x provera daily/
1 x Cardiprin and Prednisone daily/3 x Pregnyl injections (2 before and 1 after transfer)

IUI preformed at ovulation and FET 1 x blastocyst performed at 10 DPO 6/6/05 (instead of the 'usual' 5 DPO).

My doc had never done this before and a 2nd opinion from another clinic confirmed that this was very unusual - but we did it anyway!)

16/6 HcG = 41
20/6 HcG = 256

Continuing - pessaries, provera, cardiprin and prednisone till 12 wks.

This is my AC journey and believe me I'm not out of the woods yet by any stretch but felt it was time to post this.

Good luck to each and every one of you in achieving your dream.

I wish you much luck for your pregnancy..

Hi I just discovered this thread and although my story is nothing like the trials here I thought I'd share -
TTC 6 months before seeing Doc who refferred us to Specalist after seeing my DH test results which were hopeless Thankfully they got it wrong as our Doc reordered them. DH low motility, high count. Basically they needed a good stiff kick in the bum to do anything. Me - Cycle ranged from 21 to 38 days with erratic ovulation. Lap performed where it was discovered my left ovary was adhered to my abdominal wall so it was set free to do what it was meant to do. Small problems but still had no luck. I was put on clomid can't remember what dose and after 12 cycles we tried Artifical Insemination with only stim injection prior to ovulation.
BFP first go DS#1 Oct 2000
Decided to try again went straight to AI again same drugs same stim injection
BFP first go DS#2 Mar 2003
Apparently it dosen't happed very often to have positives first go both times we were chuffed
Miracle was concieved naturally and out of the blue
BFP DS#3 Oct 2004.
Our story is not nearly as heartbreaking as some but I just wanted you to know that even though we go through all of this to have these wonderful beings in our lives sometimes they deciede to come on their own.

Make sure you smile today,
Natalie

Hope this helps someone:

(1) TTC "naturally" for 12 months - BFNs all the way

(2) lap/hyst/D&C - PCOS diagnosed + male factor

(3) ovulation induction with 50mg Clomid - BFN

(4) IVF/ICSI #1, May/June 2005, SIVF. "Down Reg" protocol. Synarel and 125iu Puregon. At ER had 43 follies, 39 eggs (35 fertilised). Freeze-all cycle due to OHSS. 10 Grade 1 blasts frozen.

(5) "Rest" cycle

(6) Medicated FET #1 (estrogen tablets and progesterone pessaries). Blast lost no cells in the thaw. One blast transferred. Tested + on HPTs two days before my Beta. Beta at 16DPO was 506.

Like Diva - I'm still hanging out for that heartbeat!

I felt it might help to post here - I'm still eargerly awaiting the heartbeat scan but reading everybody's positive outcomes certainly helps pass the time.
Started TTC in 2001 - 2 clomid cycles, 2 AIH, 1 lap discovered 1 blocked tube - told that only chance was IVF.
Changed doctors in 2002, 3 AIH with 3rd resulting in pregnancy - no problems apart from a little spotting in early days. Result: Very cute DS born in June 03.
Started trying again in April 03 (never really not tried ifykwim!).
1 AIH BFN
2 AIH BFP - M/C at 7wks
3 AIH BFP - M/C at 6wks
Conceived naturally straight after - M/C at 7 wks
4 AIH BFN
5 AIH BFN
Consulted another FS in Brisbane (we're from country QLD)
1st IVF/ICSI
225 Puregon
Cardiprim, Elevit etc.
14 Follies collected, 8 fertilised, 2 transferred (day 3)
5 frozen.
Mild OHSS - still bloated now.
LP support: a combination of crinone & pessaries + provera and pregnyl (although stopped this due to OHSS)
16dpt Beta of 470
20dpt Beta of 2600
Still not out of woods but am doing all that I can - still on pessaries (4/day) and 8 provera

Hope this helps!

Cant really believe i am posting here already...but here goes.

ICSI #1
PCOS and Dh irreversable vasectomy
Age 29 & 47
Metformin, then BCP, syranel, Puregon and Crinone.

Baseline scan showed over 80 follicles.
Started on 125iu puregon, because of ohss risk.
Scans showed no leading follicles at 14d. All were size 8mm or less.

Supervising nurse cancelled my cycle altogether.
Had appointment with FS three days later- to be told that there had been a massive mistake, and that i should not have been cancelled.

Bumped immediately onto 225iu because i was still down regulated.

Many scans later showed 70+ follicles, with 40+ over 10mm.
Obviously was in a lot of pain; very bloated etc. But drank LOTS of water (3-4lt per day) and stayed on the couch.

EPU 29eggs. 18 fertilised.

1 x 6day blast transfered.

4 x 6day blasts frozen, 3 x 7day blasts frozen.

BFP- beta 200.

Good luck to those still trying.

Hi,

Thought I would finally post my success story.

We originally tried clomid for 2 months however, it didn't seem to be working and DH sperm count was low with  significant numbers of abnormalities so the RE recommended ICSI.  

Used pill to regulate cycle on all below attempts.

Our first attempt Sept 04, 200 Puregon +  Synarel.  Poor response even though we contined for 5 days longer.  In the end we used half the pregnyl dose and tried naturally with no luck.

Second attempt Nov 04. 375 Puregon + Synarel.(short flare cycle due to synarel shortage) Initial ultrasound  too few follicles. After another 4 days. EPU - 7 eggs, 5 fertlised.  1 fresh, 2 FET (Feb 05). BFN

Third Attempt April 05. 400 Puregon +Synarel. (contined with short flare as it worked the previous time). EPU - 7eggs, 4 fertilised.  2 fresh embryos transfered - BFP (single baby). Prior to this attempt I had joined the gym where I lost 6 kg.  Also we got the transfer at a different centre due to the public holiday and they used ultrasound guided transfer.  I had some difficulties at the start of the pregnancy (of course on a weekend) - if you get bleeding even if the emergency doctor tells you its a miscarriage continue with your pessaries etc until you have this confirmed by the clinic or ob.  I had extremely heavy bleeding at 6 weeks and was told 100 percent miscarriage so stopped the pessaries, luckily I saw my gp who told me this was not right and to continue the pessaries until the miscarriage was confirmed by ultrasound and repeat HCG.  I had the fantastic news that I was still pregnant with a live baby and since approx 16 weeks have not had any bleeding and all is well with baby at every one of the numerous ultrasounds.  My ob tells me that bleeding is  more common in IVF pregnancies, despite this many deliver healthy babies so never give up.  I am okay with this now but was very traumatised at the time so felt you may benefit from the info.  Good luck.

Well, this is my story:

Fell pg young, at 19, to my bf at the time and we eloped. Went on to have 6 pregnancies from ages 19 to 25: 3 children, 2 terminations and a miscarriage (my second pg) at 9 weeks.

At 26, at my XH's insistence, had a tubal ligation. When we divorced in 2000 when I was 30, I immediately started looking for a surgeon to reverse the ligation. By the time I found one (in Singapore) I'd met and moved in with my now DH. The ligation was deemed very successful and we then tried naturally for 2 years.

When I finally got the courage up to see an FS after 2 years of trying without success, a HSG found my tubes completely scarred over. I had zero chance of falling pg naturally.

On to IVF:

1st cycle 100iu Puregon, got 6 eggs, 5 fertilised, 1 embryo trf at day 2 BFN

Just thought I'd add my story..

I'm 34 - PCOS, Endo. DH is 33
TTC#1 since Jan '02

* Tried naturally for 9 mths. BT's showed no immunity to Chicken Pox, etc.. had vaccinations & abstained from TTC for 4 months.
* Insisted on referral to fertility specialist (have always had irregular periods & just "felt" something wasn't quite right. Sister has Endo).
* Attended MACC (Melb) - HSG & other tests conducted. U/sound diagnosed PCOS. Metformin. Clomid for 3 months.
* OI with Gonal F. Daily urine testing. Clinic missed ovulation.
* Jan '04 - Insisted on lap (again "that" feeling) & ovarian drilling to assist PCOS. Extensive Endo found.

* ICSI Cycle 1 - Feb '04. Synarel; Puregon 250. 8 eggs. 4 fertilised. 1 x Crinone daily. t/ferred 2 x 3-day. froze 1. BFN
* FET 1 - Apr '04. Synarel; Progynova. 1 x Crinone daily. BFN
* ICSI Cycle 2 - Jun '04. Synarel; Puregon 300. 17 eggs. 12 fertilised. 2 x Crinone daily. t/ferred 2 x 3-day. froze 6. BFP, but m/c at 5 weeks.
* FET 2 - Oct '04. Clomid. Cycle cancelled. All embryos died during thaw.

* Feb '05 - Another lap as intense pain - thought Endo was worsening. 6cm cyst removed from bowel/ovary.

* ICSI Cycle 3 - Apr '05. Synarel; Puregon 225. 10 eggs. 8 fertilised. 3 to blast. t/ferred 2 x early blasts. 2 x Crinone daily. 1 frozen. BFN
* FET 3 - May '05. Progynova. 2 x Crinone, then 1 x Crinone & 2 x Messaries daily. BFP!!!!

Currently, 20 weeks pregnant.

Other things we did in last 2 cycles:
* Regular acupuncuncture (twice a week when cycling)
* Liquid zinc - both DH & I
* Herbs in between cycles
* Vitamin B - DH
* Fish Oil tablets
* Elevit
* DH emptying barrels every 2nd day
* Quit my [horrible] job & did temp work. Didn't work at all during my last 2WW.

My best wishes,
Karen
