IVF: 2 questions, your experience is valuable to me

Postby jetperf » Tue Jun 28, 2005 3:59 am

Hi, I am new to this site and preparing for my first IVF. As I live in the middle east, I am cross-checking 2-3 things (about the procedure) before I get started... Of course we checked to different centers with different methodes... Your experience can help me :wink:

(TTC 3.5 years, 5 fert. treat (3 art. ins.), unexplained infertility)

- Dr suggest 50% ICSI / 50% normal of potential eggs retrieved. I was a bit surprised... Never heard before of "preemptive ICSI" in case of no natural fertilisation... What about you?

- As I am light (165cm / 43kg/90lbs) Dr will not use Decapeptyl but Letrozol... any similar experience?

thank you for sharing your esperience! :P

Hi Jetperf ... Welcome to the Site. There are many people here who are using the ICSI method. It is used in cases of poor male fertility.

I'm afraid I don't know the drugs you quote.

I wish you the best of luck with your cycle.
