I'll start IVF treatment soon and I want to know how many IVF rounds did you take before get BFP? How many embryos they tranferred to you? *Was the Embryo Transfer at Day 3 or Day 5 and how many babies you give birth ? Also, can you tell me your age and your infertility diagnosis, if possible? I'm 31 years old and I have PCOS, but recently my hormones are balanced and my insuline levels are normal. Finally, I have my tubes blockage. thanks.

Welcome!

There are one or two ladies on this board that have done IVF in the past. I myself am waiting until the fall/winter for our first IVF cycle. (If needed still of course )

You're welcome to post here as much as you want; however, there is also a TTC with Medical Assistance board on this site that might be able to better answer your IVF questions. (As there are more women on that board that have gone through it before or are currently cycling.)

Trying to Conceive with Medical Assistance - JustMommies Message Boards

Our diagnosis is poor ovulation and luteal phase defect, as well as male factor. (Low count, motility & morphology, as well as high levels of antibodies) We're putting off IVF in order to try alternative therapies with a ND for a few months first. We're trying to see if we can get DH's numbers up and anti-bodies down enough to the point that we can at least try IUI. So, that's our story! Hope to see you on the TTCMA board as well

ETA: Oh, and I'm 31.

Me: Autoimmune (Hashimotos and Fibromyalgia), vitamin D and calcium deficiency. Treated with Synthroid, supplements, TCM and acupuncture.

DH: Severe MFI (low counts, low motility, poor morphology and high antibodies), likely caused by poor liver function. Treated with Clomid to increase total counts.

DD: Conceived after 1 year of TTC with progesterone to correct LPD (likely caused by undiagnosed thyroid dysfunction). Born Aug 2009 via c/s after an induction due to pre-e and HELLP.

TTC #2 since Oct10 with an early loss in Aug 2011. Post-wash counts are too low for IUI to be successful, so moving on to IVF/ICSI in May 2014!

IVF/ICSI #1 (May 2014): Estrogen priming and antagonist protocol, including acupuncture and prayer!
17/05/14 - Baseline looks good, start Gonal-F 225iu and Luveris 75iu
28/05/14 - 18 eggs retrieved, 14 mature
29/05/14 - 13 fertilized!!! All are looking great still on day 3, so we're going to blast!

I got pregnant on my first IVF round. I was 26 at the time. I have PCOS, was on metformin but not tolerating it well.

We transfered 3 embryos day 3. 2 took and I became pregnant with twins but lost one during the pregnancy.

I also did a FET and transfered 3 embryos again also day 3's I believe. All three took. I delivered twins.

I have a good friend that decided to try IVF after ttc for 6 months. The fertility doc could harvest only 2 eggs. Neither took. She was 29 at the time.

Another friend of ours went to the same fertility doc at the same time. She harvested 6 and implanted 3. She now has twins.

We went to the same fertility doc and he recommended we try IVF due to my age. We simply could not afford it.

Either way you try, it's stressful.

BTW, I was 38 at the time.
