Clinical Trials - Poor Ovarian Function

I just came across this site and wanted to share it. It is a whole list of clinical trials for women with Poor Ovarian Function/Reserve. Remember the more research that is done.. the more we will learn about this disease and infertility as a whole. http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=prematur...

Re: Help me pick a clinic...what would you do?

Lynniecat, I remember you from a year and a half ago on the forum.... This is a tough decision to make.. I think you need to go with your gut instinct as you don't want to look back and say I wish I would have or wouldn't have done something... I think the answer lies within you. I hope that helps. ...

Re: What is the deal with DHEA? Helpful? Waste?

I think that you are supposed to take it for a few months before a cycle... I have a link to an article about this on my blog on the top left side under articles. A few years ago DHEA was being shrugged off in IF but it seems to be getting more and more press.

Re: Egg Quality

I had high FSH and never had many eggs retrieved. The strange thing for me was that I always had at least 50% fertilize and make it to transfer with decent quality (as far as they could tell). I was at Hopkins also (summit - please contact me with any questions). We didn't do any sort of HGH but the...

Re: Need Hope--Only 2-4 Embryos likely to retrieve

How is your estrogen level? They can't always see everything on the US. I never had a good response and only had 2 follicles the last time (4th IVF) and it was a success... You only need one! Try to keep a positive outlook and take it day by day! http://thehopefuljourney.blogspot.com/p/infertility-t...

Re: Need to donate left over meds..

My pharmacy used to accept donated meds for women that didn't have insurance coverage. I never had expired medication though.. maybe close to expiring but not expiring. IF is a terrible thing to go to but I am so glad that we have such wonderful support by each other.... http://thehopefuljourney.blo...

Re: Infertility in more movies?

How true! Also some shows like "Friends" touched on the topic years ago when Phoebe carried her brothers multiples. We do need a good drama!! I think we also need some celebrities come out VERY publically to help get the word out. We all know about Celine Dion, etc... I am by no means star struck.. ...
