Re: How to Select an IVF Fertility Clinic

Well, that's a very good topic indeed, to make the right choices when you're fighting infertility. Choosing the right one get's you to an advantage for sure. However, no one talks much about how important it is to choose the right clinic or how to go about it. I think the success rates matters the m...

Re: iui question?

I am wondering if it's ok to have sex during the cycle of iui? I will tell you am worried as we are using a donor and if we have sex after insemination, I am worried that dh's semen (he doesn't have sperm only semen) will drown the sperm from the donor, or react with it to prevent a success. Can yo...

Re: Unexplained Infertility

Oh, unexplained infertility is terrible... it just wrecks you slowly. When you know what's the cause it's somewhat easier to expect success. It's like you know what is interfering and easier to find a way to deal with it, to get you on the right protocol. Not to worry though a lot of people with une...

Re: ED and Early Menopause

Hi, there! I’ve decided to post here as I need some help. I feel a little bit trapped and can’t make my mind what to do further. The thing is I have some problems with my fertility. I was diagnosed with a low ovarian reserve nearly a year ago. My gyny says that I may even face the first signs of me...

Re: Need advice – starting on egg donation

My DH is 43 and I am 38+. Last year, we have had one 5 week miscarriage and one after 10 weeks even after hearing a mild heartbeat. We were devastated but decided to come back strongly and go for fresh donor egg IVF. An egg donor has already been chosen by us and now we are awaiting the routine pro...

Re: ED and Early Menopause

Hello all, I just wanted to share an update in case anyone finds it as a help and an impetus. I shared my journey to a lady I befriended in a fertility struggle meetup and she thought to check the Lotus Clinic details makes sense. She was on TTC for 7 years... 5 years on failed IVF and was almost at...

Re: Ukraine !!

:D I just wanted to let everyone know about the clinic I went to in Kiev, Ukraine for egg Donation. I know, it sounds mad, but we didn't want to spend years trying to find and prepare a donor. We took a huge leap of faith, and went out to Kiev. Wow is all I can say! We were surprised at the level o...

Re: Poor Egg quality

Hello, I need some advice. I'm 41 years old and on my second cycle IVF (both a year apart) and my doctor just told me that out of my 10 retrieved and fertilized eggs, 7 survived after fertilization, 1 died, 3 went haywire, and 3 are of very poor quality, which leaves me with yet another failed IVF....

Re: What clinics will offer egg donation at age 51

Hi All, I have one child. I used IVF and my own eggs for her. I really want a second child now and realize I will need donor eggs. I tried with my own 5 years ago but was unsuccessful. I can't shake the need for a second child. Is it too late. Are their clinics where the recipient can be older? Tha...

Re: which option should I go for?

Hi everyone. I want some suggestions. I live in the UK. I have been referred to a clinic for IVF. I am eligible for NHS funding. However, if I choose to avail that, then I need to wait for 6 months. Without funding I only need to wait for like a month. However, without the funding, it is way to exp...

Re: ED and Early Menopause

Xenia, thanks for the clue. I’ve read this article and found loads of useful information in it. I would certainly take it into consideration while choosing the fertility clinic. I’ve written in my initial post that my mom did have some problems with her fertility, so I think my problems with ovarie...

Re: ED and Early Menopause

If I were in your shoes, I would pay more attention to the way they select egg donors for their egg donation programs. I think it’s better to deal with the clinics that offer oocytes of young egg donors. As far as I know, they are considered to be the most effective. I would also pay attention to t...
