Default Need encouragement and success stories!

I went into my clinic today to have an u/s. I've been on BCP's for 2 weeks and I start Lupron and Follistim soon. ER is scheduled. Well, I have a follie on my right ovary that is 20x21. My doctor said they see this a lot when you first start BCP's. I go back in soon to see if it is smaller or gone. If not they will cancel my cycle this month... This is my first IVF cycle.

Has anyone ever heard of this??

Unhappy last chance

I think if you are over 50 years old, you will need a miracle medicine to become pregnant. It is begining to feel that way, anyway.

Red face Where are you?

I am interested in attempting an IVF for the second time, but am almost 51. I know the odds are against me, but want to try, so my question is, who will accept me at this age for a try at an IVF cycle? Does anyone know?

Hi
I would be really grateful if any of you would contact me. I am making a documentary about women becoming mothers over 50 and I would love to hear some personal stories. You could just speak to me on the phone, in complete confidence for research purposes.

Thanks
