Abit gutted  :(

May 25, 2012 - 12 comments

Well I feel deflated, and it feels like my baby making journey is comming to an end, not by low amh or menopause as I expected but by a really horrible new re that I saw today.... I was abit worried when I made my app at the clinic when I was told tthat my old re had retired, dont know why but I just had that feeling, anyway off I go to my app today full of high hopes, oh how they were to be dashed in less than 10 min of meeting the "new"guy.... He wouldnt give me the dhea that I so badly need to get that one last succesful pregnancy, well he would but in order to get it  I had to go and have all the tests done including the dye one to check to see if my tubes were blocked! and my hubby had to have his sperm checked. blah blah blah, now this doesnt sound too bad except that in my case its a blatent grab for money!! I can get pregnant, I dont have blocked tubes, my d/h doesnt have anything wrong with his sperm, my case acording to my last re was very straight forward.....old eggs.... so a 3 month course of dhea would give me the best chance of concieving again, one last time, but no not with this p r i c k, even after explaining all this over and over again, the fact that I've jsut had a baby, and I just had a miscarriage (nov) he still tried to tell me that my tubes maybe blocked or my d/h sperm maybe low, I told him we couldnt afford all this extra testing that wasnt necessary but he didnt car, so thats that, I have no-one left who can help me, dhea cant be bought in australia as its illegial, you have tyo have a script and only certain re's who have applied can give you a script, no doctors will give me clomid either so thats it, its all over :(

well I'm feeling a tad better today, had my weekly app with my acupuncturist, who is also a regular doctor, I wnet on the net and downloaded some info on dhea and took that in to him, after I explained what had happened he said that he will write a script out for me, so I left him with all the info and he's going to read it and maybe contact the ivf center in ny who have done the trials with it, I hope an ordinary gp can prescribe it over here, and I also hope he likes what he reads :) if not back to square 1 again....

Hi Stac
I am soooo sorry to hear of what you have been going through.  My gosh your 'baby history' clearly shows that there ain't no blocked tubes there and definitely no sperm problems... it seems like the dude is someone who does not know how to recognise what you have been going through, the very small window you have and that he is just wielding his power and authority because HE CAN!
Your accupuncturist doctor sounds like he has his head screwed on.  I am sooooooooo praying that he agrees to your script and you are up and on to the DHEA!
Thinking of you girl!!!

I've left the dhea in the hands of my acupucturist, he's also a gp so hopefully he will give be a script for it as we can only get it on a script here,  until then I'm continuing on with the maca and royal jelly and am looking into bulgarian tribulus, but thats more for ladies who dont ovulate, but it is also a general  fertility tonic :)

I just wanted to ask about the DHEA.    I was looking into it and it all sounded good from everyone on here, but then I came accross this RE that really went into depth explaining about how DHEA raises the testosterone levels and came make "old" eggs even worse.   Its good for some people but not at all recommended for us "older" mommies.   I just turned 46 as well and am still interested in another baby and looking into everything I can, however I don't want to do any damage to the precious few eggs I may have left.  I actually bought the DHEA and used it for one cycle, but now I'm a little scared and don't know what to think anymore.  

What do you know about DHEA?    Can you give me any guidance?    I've also read alot about bee pollen, royal jelly and maca and heard good things about that too, but its just all so confusing sometimes.

Well I have given up on my eggs, I'm pretty sure I don't have that many left, I never got to try the DHEA, but if I could have I would def have given it a shot!! Im at the point of realisation that for me anyway, no amount of suppliments will help, if you have a good egg in there it will be in there, the suppliments are still good for late 30's early fourties, but I think once over 45 they cant do much, but I have heard great things about ovaboost and if I could get it in Australia I would def be on it!!.... Good luck :)

Stacey, I can just mail it to you. Order it and ship it to my house and I can mail it to you. I will PM you my address. I did this with one of the M/H lady who is from your neck of the woods. She was successful, too. She did alot of things (supps and stuff). So it's hard to know exactly which things did the trick. But from all the research I've done on DHEA, it is very exciting! It really does seem to turn back the clock for our "old" eggs. Lemme know.I'm happy to send it to you. And if I recall, it wasn't even that expensive. I have a post office a few blocks away from my house. Hang in there! Don't let this jackass get you down! You can still get what you need!

what is DHEA? I wish you all the best Stacey, If i were you i wouldnt give up, I would find a new RE, Dont let some ******* get you down u have fought this long, and for what to have another baby, dont let some RE that just wants to make more money get you down, your better then that, Im sure there must be another Re clinic, Good Luck to you, and Ive mailed meds to other people so i think Sherri sending them to you is a great idea. Good Luck , FX for you

I used dhea for about 4 months and got horrible acne. This was over a year ago and I believe it threw my testerone up way too high. Its been a while and I never felt that my hormones regulated themselves after taking that stuff and now I have too much androgen. Suffering from hair loss and HORRIFIC acne. Granted I took it in high doses (100 mg) but I really think anyone should excercise caution with this supp. Good idea to get dhea levels tested first.

I've heard promising things about coq10 but who knows.... At this point I'm with you Stacey!! Given up on the old hard boiled eggers lol.

Super excited to see you get knocked up one last time :) I'm having a good vibe about this upcoming trip of yours.
