options? — The Bump
Infertility Veterans


Well my fet was in fact a bfn :( 

My WTF appt is on tuesday and we have to start thinking about what we are going to do if anything.  We have 1 frozen embie, but i'm nervous to try a fet of 1 blast that was our weakest of the 3 we had ...when our transfer of 2 didn't work....i'm worried i'd be wasting money that we don't really have.  

Our other option i'd LIKE to explore is going back to clomid and ti.  We got pregnant 2x that way ...one was a chemical pregancy and the other was a m/c at 9 weeks.  My nurse was hesitant ...she thinks that dh's poor morph was the cuase of the miscarriages and says bad morph = bad dna and hence m/c. 

My thought is that we got ds so they aren't ALL bad.  And there are a lot of articles that say morph doesn't necessarily = genetic problems.

We  really don't have the funds right now for another fresh cycle or adoption route.

WDYT?  Anyone here have experience with morph issues and what do your res think?  we're going to try to talk the dr into letting dh take vitamins for 3 months and retest the sperm (its been 3 years) and may do a few rounds of clomid and see hat happens?

1 chemical and 1 loss at 9 weeks prior to DS
IVF #1 1/10-transfered 2 blasts- DS born 10/2010

Trying for # 2 since 2012.  2 failed FETS 1 failed IUI.
IUI#2 4/14/14-- BFP !!!!! Beta #1 14dpiui= 45 Beta #2 16dpiui= 80  Beta #3 18dpiui= 88 (chemical pregnancy)
March 2015- Chemical pg

1/25/16- BFP  Beta1 12dpo = 17, Beta 2 14 dpo = 28.. resulted in one beautiful boy born 9/21/16 :)

Now I'm a stay at home loving life and pursuing my love of photography!!!

Re: options?

  • First, (((hugs)))) I am so sorry about another BFN Sad

    We just did a sFET with our last embie, but it had the highest grade the lab can give.  I think your plan to try clomid + TI or DS doesn't sound like too bad of an idea.  Something to try while your saving up for another fresh cycle if you need to?  Good luck with whatever you decide
