This will be our 4th (and final IVF). We are looking at doing an IVF cycle sometime in October/November. I have already met with our RE and have our protocol and plan in place. I will be doing an antagonist protocol. Gonal-F and Menopur. No bcp's. Plus other meds like baby aspirin, pnv and DHEA. I will start the DHEA in September. RE wants me to take it for 2-3 months prior to starting stims. I also will have to have b/w and saline sono done.
The reason I am intro'ing and posting here is that I have DOR and endo and usually only have 2-3 eggs max at retrieval. RE is giving us the choice to use my eggs or donor eggs. I've been thinking ALOT about donor eggs. Reading books, forums, etc. RE says my chances are 50/50 with my eggs IF I can make it to retrieval or 70% chance with donor eggs.
We have a 2 year old from our 3rd IVF. Back in 2011 my FSH was 10.7. My AMH in March of this year was 0.16 and my FSH was 19. Like a lot of people, we are out of pocket though we did get approved for the Compassionate Care program for med help. Just wondering what you think about the numbers and if I should try own eggs one last time or go for donor eggs?
Thanks for reading and I hope I did the warning correctly.
