IVF chances

Postby blink101103 » Wed Feb 04, 2009 7:10 am

I'm new as well. Go to see our FS on Monday. Very nervous. DH and I want a baby TOGETHER. My age complicates things (my eggs). My sister is 37. Would her eggs give us better chances using IVF? Also where do I go to find all the abbreviations for writing these?
Me 45, DH 45
unexplained, TTC 5.7 yrs.
One IUI 3/06- failed
natural BFP 3/08- miscarried @ 6 1/2 wks.
Me- DD & DS, DH- DD & DS previous marriages

Based on age alone, it would help, but they’d have to test her levels to see how much. Ideally, they want a really young donor. My sister is 4 years younger than me. One doc said that (assuming her FSH was under 10), her eggs would likely increase my chances roughly 15%

Here’s an abbreviation list:
…although there’s a lot I’ve never seen many of these used.
07 MC
08 IVF: lost twins 1 MC/1 anencephaly
1/30/09 FET: BFP!
9/21/09 She's here! born 5 weeks early, 4lb. 6 oz., 17-1/2 in.
