Im 38 years old with severe DOR, AMH 0.27, AFC 5. I had 2 miscarriages which prompted me to seek an RE. My first cycle only yielded 3 eggs and during retrieval, they got 2 and both were really bad quality and fell apart pretty much immediately. Ive been on coq10, myo-inositol, royal jelly, vitamin c, prenatals, fish oil, minerals, B12, glutathione, turmeric, and Chinese herbs for the past 3 months. I also have been getting acupuncture consistently once or twice a week for past 3 months.
Today, on day 5 of stims, my cycle got canceled because I had a 17 mm gigantic follicle. She said I will ovulate in a day or two. I asked if I could convert to IUI and she said she didn't think it would be a good egg. Has anyone tried having sex anyways to see if it would fertilize? Am I playing with fire by doing this? We are planning on embryo banking to have more than 1 kid (hopefully 3 kids). But we are starting to realize that my IVF and eggs may not work and we might need donor eggs ultimately if our next cycle fails again. So is it dumb for me to try and see if this egg would fertilize naturally or am I setting myself up for another miscarriage? Has anyone done this and been successful with a lead follicle so early in the cycle? Of note....I did estrogen priming and did a follicular antagonist protocol, so I was on cetrotide and also HGH for a week before I started stims.
