I did a protocol for many weeks in advance of my ER/ET. I got pg, and my lining was really thick.
I'd suggest going to someone who specializes in infertility and let them know about your lining concerns. I don't have any idea ho fast it can work for you, but like you said you have nothing to lose. Good luck!View Thread
3 IUI's - wow! All three of my RE's (each a different practice) said 6, since the IUI success rate us roughly 20% . I think I ended up doing so many (10, I think?) because I did get pg twice that way. But after the 1st m/c they said only 3 more IUI's...then onto IVF.
And ditto what Cherie said - IF is a roller coaster. And AF is a meanie when it comes to being cooperative. The b est thing you can do is relax, the more stress the harder it is on your cycles.
We didn't get very far with CA Cryo before we switched to Fairfax. I don't even remember the process of CA cryo - but with Fairfax you can get everything instantly on the internet. Just add it to your cart, pay and you download. You can get stuff mailed to you, but I saw no reason since I could print out what I had purchased from the site, and save pic to my computer.
It has a really good searching tool, so you can narrow it down. That was very helpful. We searched by height, hair color, weight, ancestry, blood type, etc. Most donors you can hear a file over internet of an interview question, you can read an something they wrote to answer a question, and then the staff have listed their "impressions' of the donor. I don't think any donors we looked at had adult pics, but there were baby pics.
Hi! So, long story short, we chose Fairfax Cryo over CA Cryo.
Long story: When we started with RE#1 we were looking through Calif Cryo. We went to RE#2 for a second opinion, and decided to go with RE#2. He said that he would prefer we used Fairfax Cryo. So we used them. We used the special buying plan where we purchased 6 vials for a discount and discount shipping. At the time we didn't realize that you could buy as many vials as you wanted, and have hem stored at Fairfax, and they would buy them back (at a lower cost than you paid), but you could basically stockpile a donor for future siblings. *wish we had done this!!*
Got pg at RE#2 clinic - moved, started looking for RE#3 to try for a sibling. Still had donor sperm left from orig purchase - that ruled out one clinic for us, because they would only use donor sperm from a list of cryo centers, Fairfax not on it. Found RE#3, they were fine with Fairfax. Moved to RE#4 - needed a fresh perspective on our infertility. They were very pleased we used Fairfax - that was they were highly respected and had an excellent screening process for donors. Ran out of vials, had gto order more - and our donor had been taken off the list because enough pgs had been achieved. They do have another cryo clinic attached to them - Cryogenic lab - in case you need more options.
Oh Jessica - I'm so sorry the RE didn't have anything else to tell you. My RE said that if I did another fresh cycle and had a similar outcome she would assume it was an developmental issue with the egg (sounds a lot like what your RE said) She said sometimes an egg can look just fine, but it doesn't "do" fine. I guess it's to be more expected for me (since I'm 40 ).
Again, SO sorry to hear that there was no great solution. I hope that the test show *something* it's so frustrating not knowing why.
I think it's a great idea to give it some thought, before jumping into either decision. Great news about the meds being covered - that's something!!
