Had my daughter at 40 (conceived when i was 39) naturally. Started trying for second when she was 6 months old and no luck. Have done clomid, horomones, IUI with no luck.Our second attempt with IVF. We went to Czech Repulic as our insurance has no IVF coverage and only limited fertility coverage. (which we burned through doing hormone and IUI treatments here). Found this clinic and US coordinator through a friend. Costs were 1/3 of the US. Friend had twins from the clinic.
We did donor eggs as I am 44. Got 11 eggs from donor. 9 were fertilized by ICSI. 8 matured. Did day 5 transfer in Feb of 2 Blastocysts grade I. (They were able to freeze two other blastocyst but not the 4 multi-cell.)
Had great symptoms starting at 48 hours later. Tired, (.)(.) were swollen and sore. hot flashes. This lasted for about 9 days then faded off. Got BFN on 2WW blood test.
Just went back in April for the two frozen embryos. Transfer was 4/8. We flew home on 4/12. No symptoms as all yet 5 days after transfer. So worried cried on the plane home. Trying to keep positive thoughts.
