antidepressants and IVF/TTC

Hi there~ My counselor is recommending I go on antidepressants for the short term to help lift me out of this hole after back-to-back miscarriages. I was wondering if anybody knows a safe antidepressant to use when trying to conceive? I think this will just make me feel more crazy if I'm worried it'...

Re: Success stories in early 40s

oops posted before I was ready! I am trying to focus on my daughter now too. But I still feel like I want another baby--a brother and sister for her. I feel so lucky to have her--I love her so much--but cant stop this yearning for another! Do you think you will try again? Your numbers were so good f...

Re: Success stories in early 40s

Hi Cookie~ I am so very sorry. I was really hoping for your success! We have the same issues in New Zealand--it is all government regulated. 2 is the most they will let me put back as well--which is ridiculous considering my age and history. I am glad that you have your beautiful daughter already. B...

Re: please help

I am heartbroken all over again. We had decided to try one more IVF and I was just waiting to start my cycle. Well my period never showed up and believe it or not--I was actually pregnant! This was just so crazy and unbelievable after years of trying and all our problems--to get a natural pregnancy ...

Re: Success stories in early 40s

Hi Cookie~ I am so very sorry about your BFN. I was so hoping you would get lucky. I know how gutting it is to get that news and I hope that you are coping ok. Be nice to yourself right now--have a glass of wine and a warm bath. You don't need to make any decisions yet--you are still grieving from t...

Re: please help

Hi Cookie--thank you so much for the tip on Australian IVF prices. Do you know if those prices are for everybody? Or do you need Australian Medicare coverage? (New Zealand citizens can't get Medicare unless we shift to Oz). Could you tell me the name of a good clinic over there and I will follow-up ...

Re: please help

So I made an appointment to see my Dr on Tuesday. I want to know if he thinks I should try again or if they will even let me go again at age 43. I want to know if the miscarriage is bad sign or if getting pregnant so recently is a good sign. Maybe my eggs are just too old. I am so scared he is going...

Re: Cycling In 2012 Board (formerly Fall/Winter 2011-2012)

Leora --just wanted to pop in and say im so very sorry about your BFN. But glad you are able to cycle again straight away. They make you wait for 3 months over here! All that waiting around between cycles made me nearly mad. I am really hoping this next cycle is it for you. You have been through so...

Re: please help

Hiya Guys~ Thank you so much for all the good advice. I wish I could switch clinics and start fresh. But New Zealand is a small country and we only have ONE clinic! lol. There are 3 different locations in 3 different cities, but it is all Fertility Associates. I'd have to fly to get to another offic...

Re: please help

Thank you so much for all the thoughtful advice. I really appreciate it. My birthday was yesterday and I am feeling blue. Even though I set that as my cut-off date, I really don't feel like I am done. But honestly, I can't even imagine walking back into the fertility clinic again--it just makes me i...

Re: Nov/Dec Cycle for Baby #2 attempt?

Hiya guys! thank you for all the well wishes. I am so relieved to see that heartbeat! Of course I still get worried that something bad will happen--but I think that is how all us IVFers feel until that baby is in our arms! I am officially released from my fertility clinic! Hopefully i will never hav...
