9/8 Went the Dr, received some bad news today. My Re went over my entire protocol with me. Here where the findings and the Opps....In May they did my blood work and Egg reserve. They found 9 eggs on each ovary, but my hormone level was almost premenopausal. Re said she thought something was messed up with the blood work. When I started my IVF meds, my follicles was growing too slow for her so they bumped up my meds. Did 3 extra days on the meds and they finally jumped passed the 16mm. Retrieval Went great, but only 5 follicles. Out of 5 eggs, 1 died, 2 not immature, 2 fertilized but only 1 survived. I found out that the Embryo that was put back was only a 5 cell grade B. She said it was growing slow and thought if it was in its natural state it will survive. My lining and levels were Great, but the embryo didn’t survive.
My Re says, well if you do this again I will change your protocol and more meds. Now I know you are about to be premenopausal I have to treat you like your in your 40's. Also, she keep saying please don’t wait long cause you might not have any eggs before the age of 35. All I can say was WOW....I am more upset about them not telling me I am almost premenopausal then getting a negative on my pregnancy. Now, I have to find money to do this again and the meds are about to kill my pockets, because of the higher dosage. She told me the meds are $6,500 and procedure is about $12,500 cover ivf, icsi & azh. I am just tripping off of the expense. Today has been a bummed day for me. I think I am going to find another Re to get a second opinion and find a better price. Never in a million years would I ever think I would have a Fertility issue. I choose not to have anymore children until I got married. Now if I don’t act fast may not have any eggs left for a biological child. I am praying for God to guide me and show me what my options are financially.
