IF Testing & Treatment w/o 05.03 — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

IF Testing & Treatment w/o 05.03



This is a place for those of us who have already started TTC, but have started infertility testing and/or treatments. You can express your thoughts, feelings, and frustrations on infertility. TTC can be a long journey naturally, then add in the difficulties associated with infertility, and it becomes a whole new ball game. The road to infertility can be lonely, frustrating, and complicated, so let's make this a place where we can vent, ask questions, and support one another. Feel free to resurrect this thread at any point in the week if you have something to say. Treat this as an ongoing conversation.

Diagnosis (if you've been):  

Status (WTO/TWW/TTA):  

What are you doing this cycle? (Testing? Treatment?):  

How are things going?:  

Any questions?:

GTKY: riffing off the tangent that started last week, what advice would you give your 25 yr old self vis-a-vis career and/or relationships and/or having a family.

  • Hey all. I just had my 2nd moderna shot this morning and holy heck it is kicking my butt. Anyway, everyone knows what's up with me so no hurry on my update, hah. But just wanted to say thanks everyone for the thought-provoking conversation.
    I am doing this alone. Had my left ovary and fallopian tube removed due to cyst/necrosis just after birth. Right ovary and fallopian tube still purport to function.
    Began TTC in Aug '18 @ age 36
    5 or 6 (or 7?!) cycles using frozen donor sperm, ICI (turkey baster method). All BFN
    Mar-Jun '19 IUIs, all BFN
    Began process of referral for RE in spring of '19, blood tests confirm low AMH (.54) but all else is good.
    May '19 HSG shows open tube, but ultrasound suggests fibroids
    MRI in June '19 confirms two large fibroids, one growing through wall of uterus
    In June '19 I move from California to Oregon, disrupting my insurance, referrals, etc. 5 months spent piecing it all back together.
    Nov. '19 attempted myomectomy (vaginal approach) failed. 2nd surgery using laparoscopic method in Jan '20 is successful.
    April '20 --> June '20, natural IUIs, all BFN.
    July? saline ultrasound and bubble test demonstrate open tube
    July '20 clomid cycle cancelled for thin lining
    Aug-Oct, 3 femara cycles, all BFN
    Get an RE referral. While waiting to set up an appointment Nov-Jan, I continue with natural cycles and ICI, using a known donor, BFN...
    Jan '21 [fertility clinic], more bloodwork, AMH is worse (.36) but other numbers are fine-ish. laparoscopy all good
    Feb '21, injectables (menopur, novarel), iui, BFN (doc said the frozen donor sperm sample had the "best numbers she'd ever seen!")
    Mar '21, injectables, iui cancelled due to lack of follicles.
    May '21, first IVF round cancelled due to cyst.
    Currently planning for a July IVF cycle

    @bows22 Yay for the endometrial biopsy going well! FX you get the results quickly so you know how you will proceed.

    @bumblebee0210 you must mean the Zymöt dish. I think that’s a good idea. You should check out the videos they have on their website; they explain really well how it selects the best sperm. When do you start stims this cycle? Hopefully the higher dose + Zymot will have a positive effect and that you’ll end up with at least 2 PGT tested embryos! 🤞🏻🙏

    @optimistgardener how is your headspace now?

    @bows22 Oooh I really hope that biopsy results are in sooner rather than later, and that you get an ALL CLEAR! I see that you're in WTO, so hopefully if all clear, you can do an IUI as soon as next cycle! 

    Diagnosis (if you've been): sperm-related fertilization issues (likely genetic issue dues to DH's faulty SDHA gene which can impair spermatogenesis)

    Status (WTO/TWW/TTA): TWW (which is flying by thanks to doggo!)

    What are you doing this cycle? (Testing? Treatment?): waiting on this final natural cycle to end before starting the IVF journey next cycle!

    How are things going?: Great! I continue to be amazed by all the support the Dr. Aimee keeps on providing. Yesterday, I followed up with her regarding whether or not she'd heard back from the genetic testing company, and also mentioning that our intake appointment with the RE she'd recommended is next week. She replied (right away, of course) asking that I remind her a couple of day before our appointment so that she can send him a message to tell him how special we are to her! 😍(But she hasn't back from the genetic testing company; is certain she will.) Oh, an my insurance authorization went through (only took 1 day) so we are ALL set for our 5/10 appointment!

    Any questions?: NATM

    GTKY: riffing off the tangent that started last week, what advice would you give your 25 yr old self vis-a-vis career and/or relationships and/or having a family. Well, I'm going to combine what I said last week about egg freezing, with the advice from @bumblebee0210 about paying for my daughter's egg freezing. And also a bit of @bows22 advice about "yes, these things will happen in due time" but also explaining that separating those eventual things from any current/future desire to have children is key. I also hope that by the time I (hopefully) have 25yr old children, egg freezing AND sperm freezing will be standard part of care for young women / men and not something that "can't be afforded."

    @acleverusername yes! The plan is for next cycle assuming no polyp. I’m only on CD8 so plenty of time even if the results take a little longer. I already have my instructions for the IUI cycle so just need the all clear! Glad things are falling into place for you for next cycle as well! Yay Dr. Aimee!
  • @acleverusername. I knew you would know what it was! TBH, I hadn't really focused much on any sperm things because every time MH had had it looked at they are always like "three cheers for your sperm!", and we are doing ICSI anyway because the genetics people require it (I think they don't like random other sperm clinging to the embryo and adding DNA to the mix), so I just didn't think it would be an issue? I think it still could be egg quality-- I even called the embryologist to double check and they said there was nothing visibly wrong with either egg or sperm. Anyway, hopefully the zymot will help!

    @kiki047. Exciting that you're getting so close! It's funny that your RE is superstitious, but honestly sometimes I think it's better not to know til the final numbers are in.

    @acleverusername we must have been posting at the same time, I missed your check-in. Love that you have Dr Aimee in your corner through all of this. Yay for the next part of your journey coming up so soon! 
    @bumblebee0210 yes, I think you're right. I was always so jelaous of people who got daily reports of follicle development, etc, but honestly they got so fixated on a specific number that they were always inevitably disappointed. IVF math is the shits, there are just so many variables. I do wish they'd tell me a little more but I don't feel like he's purposely withholding anything from me so I trust that as long as he says it looks good, then I will keep at it.

    @kiki047 yay so happy things are still going well and looking like you are able to do a fresh transfer!  I almost messaged you today to see what was going on....I don’t want to be annoying but I want all of the details! I’m also excited for you to have your retrieval cheat meal!
    keikiloveacleverusername
  • @kiki047 yep! I think we did cross-post. I'm excited for your update! There is so much to unpack there. At first I was like "wow... Saturday ER with 3 follies over 20mm?!" but then I remembered that you're on super low-dose of medication. So, hopefully the low dose will keep the large ones from over maturing while the littles catch up. 🤞🏻And hopefully the lining will continue to thicken so that you can push forward with the transfer! 🤞🏻🤞🏻In terms of probiotic for fertility... so I think I'm about to dive into this rabbit hole myself as I need to found out how to get my TPO antibodies under control, and a lot of it has to do with leaky gut. I've picked up a book on "Getting Hashimoto's under control" (or something like that) and am also tempted to see a functional medicine doctor. Anyway, this is not helpful to you know, but I'll gladly share anything I learn. Oh... and super congrats on those phenomenal results with keto! Just wow!

    @bows22 you know you’re always welcome to harass me lol. You know where to find me! 
    @acleverusername I’m still only at 150iu gonal-F, but follies today were still growing so I guess it’s doing what it is supposed to. My RE is very conservative to begin with, he’s more about quality over quantity so his target is only ever 3-5 eggs, which seems sooo low to me considering everything I’m already putting my body through, like damn, double that is more like it. But we’ll see. We had very good fert and development rates last time even with only 5 eggs so the hope is we’ll have similar, if not better, results this time. 🤷🏻‍♀️  I look forward to seeing what you learn about leaky gut.

    @bows22 fingers crossed for good results on the biopsy!
    @bumblebee0210 it's frustrating that you're having a low fertilization rate but sounds like your clinic is working hard to improve it and the zymot dish seems like a good possibility? I can totally understand the inclination to blame the eggs (I always blame my eggs :smile: ), but who the heck knows, really.
    @acleverusername great news about insurance going through, and that's wonderful that you've been getting so much support from Dr. Aimee in this process.
    @kiki047 Things seem like they're going really well for you this cycle so far! Here's to them staying that way! I'm so interested to see how your protocol plays out. Also, I totally agree re: menstruation and social attitudes about it. I wish I'd had more of a sense of what "normal" is and how "normal" changes over time--maybe I would have had a better sense if heard other women talking about their experiences of bleeding at different ages. I just assumed it was part of getting older when I started rather suddenly around the age of 34 bleeding through a "super plus" tampon in a couple of hours or less (quite a change from my earlier years when a "regular" would hold me for the full 8 hours). Maybe if I'd paid more attention to that, I would have found out about my huge fibroids a couple of years earlier and perhaps saved myself a lot of fertility heartache.

    Re: moi. I can't say my headspace is great, but it's better than it was. I just kinda grind my teeth at all the waiting I've done through this process. I wound up waiting for nearly a year after I learned about the above-mentioned fibroids before I could get my insurance set up, then one failed surgery before a successful one, and then several months of healing. I really resent all of those missed ovulations! But I am gonna be super good about my supps and maybe they will make a difference for me when I finally do get around to the retrieval cycle! And in the meantime I will try to set up some camping trips with my mom, and hopefully make some headway on that possible job opportunity, and in general try to stay calm and get lots of jogging in because I know jogging is good for my mindset and my waistband.

    @acleverusername and @kiki047 I am curious about fertility and probiotics. My mom has been doing lots of research on probiotics and fermented foods as they relate to cancer and there is a lot of good evidence out there to suggest that good gut health makes a meaningful difference in how the body is able to recognize and build its own defenses in that context. Not a silver bullet but what is. So I would not be surprised to learn that it is beneficial in a fertility context as well! Please share anything you learn.

  • Just got back from Labcorp for betas.  Hoping if I stop the Endometrin today, AF will show quickly, which would make CD3 Saturday.  I could technically still go in Saturday even if it's only CD2 though, I guess.  Weekend monitoring is so much easier than having to rush back home and log in for work.

    @BusinessWife I’m sorry, it sounds like you’re sure it’s a bfn. That is so disappointing. I hope you’ve had some time to process this outcome. 💔 
    Being that you’re hoping to do CD3 bloodwork, does that mean that you’re gearing up for another transfer round?

  • @optimistgardener @kiki047 @acleverusername I can't say I've done a lot of research into it, but I do take probiotics for TTC.  I have a probiotic "gut shot" drink by Farmhouse Culture that I take a shot of every day (that I remember lol but any raw fermented sauerkraut or kim chee would work), as well as a tablet that is by Physician's Choice, 60 Billion Probiotic, available on Amazon smile and not too expensive.  That is the one my clinic recommended.

    I know endometritis is one of those early things they like to suspect, and then if you have been given abx at all, of course that can wreak havoc on just about everything.  So the probiotics should help ensure you have a nice, happy, healthy endometrial biome for implantation.

  • @BusinessWife. I'm sorry man. It's such a bummer to have to deal with the logistics of clinic nonsense when you just want to be left alone to be sad in peace. 

    AFM: two aneuploid embryos from the last round, no normals. Pretty bummed.

  • Thank you @bumblebee0210 Yes, it is a certain kind of grieving that has to happen.  I'm glad at least my faith is giving me some peace this time, through the heartache.  I'm so sorry you didn't get any normals this time.  That really is such a disappointment after all the trouble we go through to cycle.

    ****TW**** IVF success / LCs
    I got three blasts with our first retrieval and four with our second.  All non pgs.  DD came from our second retrieval (as well as these last ones), and Baby Girl is from our first retrieval (and the other two did not stick).  It's just so crazy to think if this last one were not to work, that's what it would be, one retrieval, one THB.  People who have never been through treatments, I think have this (what is largely a misconception) that when we do IVF we just make ALL THESE BABIES, when really so. much. goes in just to bringing this one very special person into being.

    And then to think you go through a whole cycle and not have really even one chance to show for it has got to be  really hard.  (((hugs)))

  • *tw loss*

    We are doing this, in part at least, to avoid more miscarriages. So, on that sense, I feel like I am dodging bullets, especially because my doctor said that one of the embryos had trisomy 16, which is the single most common issue they see in miscarriages. And I fully understand statistics enough to know that 50% normal means if you give them 2 to test, there is a reasonable chance they will both come back abnormal. But, oh man, I am just so sad about it.

  • Right. @bumblebee0210 That is a good way to look at it, but of course, it doesn't make the sad part any less sad.  Ugh, statistics.  I think I saw something, I don't know how reliable it is, that I may only have a 25% chance with each of my two 6CBs.  So I'm like, okay if we transfer two then it's like a 50/50 shot?  Maybe?  #notastatistician Of course however favorable the stats might be (or not), ultimately nothing else matters except that they fall in our favor. fx  (((hugs)))

  • @BusinessWife. That's actually pretty close! It's about a 44% chance at least one will work (.25^2 + 2*.25&.75, or 1-.75^2). Of course, once you know one has already not worked, you are back to 25%.

  • Thank you, @kiki047 I will take all the positive vibes we can get.  And wth with the PIO??? That is so super annoying.  I hate that you can only get 2 weeks at a time of things you KNOW you're going to need, or you have to wait x amount of time before they will clear the refill.  It just helps my mind be at ease knowing I have everything I need and don't have to worry about it for that longer time out.  sigh.  I'm sure they won't leave you hanging, but I'm sorry you have that added stress.

    Thanks @acleverusername Luckily, I think I got most of it out already several days ago.  I am still holding out hope that this last one will be our THB!  But I guess it's like, things I can't control, right?  We did everything we could, and it didn't work.  So.  No sense raging about it, it is what it is. :/ DOESN'T MEAN IT DOESN'T STILL SUCK!!!! lol but anyway

    @optimistgardener oh so scary!  I'm glad you're feeling better and uh, vertical again?  phew!

    @bumblebee0210 okay, so let's pretend we didn't know that yet... I think my 4BB was only a 40-something percent chance!??  So I mean, I'll take it! :)

  • @acleverusername you know I've been thinking all day about your comment re: regrets. I went back and looked at my posts this week and, although I never actually use the word, you're totally right that my posts are nonetheless a bit steeped in it this week. It's def a thing I can be a bit prone to, so thanks for seeing it and reminding me. Sometimes though the dividing line between regret and, how to say, self-knowledge or perspective or whatever is pretty ambiguous. So on the positive side I am grateful that I've figured a few things out over the years, and hopefully I'm happier for it as well :).

    @kiki047 that story about your adolescence and your mom's attitude about your body and your period is rough. So sorry you had to experience it that way, and I can imagine that must have been a real challenge to come to terms with later. First periods can be such scary and alienating experiences; it sucks that your mom couldn't help support you through it and instead made it worse!
    I am doing this alone. Had my left ovary and fallopian tube removed due to cyst/necrosis just after birth. Right ovary and fallopian tube still purport to function.
    Began TTC in Aug '18 @ age 36
    5 or 6 (or 7?!) cycles using frozen donor sperm, ICI (turkey baster method). All BFN
    Mar-Jun '19 IUIs, all BFN
    Began process of referral for RE in spring of '19, blood tests confirm low AMH (.54) but all else is good.
    May '19 HSG shows open tube, but ultrasound suggests fibroids
    MRI in June '19 confirms two large fibroids, one growing through wall of uterus
    In June '19 I move from California to Oregon, disrupting my insurance, referrals, etc. 5 months spent piecing it all back together.
    Nov. '19 attempted myomectomy (vaginal approach) failed. 2nd surgery using laparoscopic method in Jan '20 is successful.
    April '20 --> June '20, natural IUIs, all BFN.
    July? saline ultrasound and bubble test demonstrate open tube
    July '20 clomid cycle cancelled for thin lining
    Aug-Oct, 3 femara cycles, all BFN
    Get an RE referral. While waiting to set up an appointment Nov-Jan, I continue with natural cycles and ICI, using a known donor, BFN...
    Jan '21 [fertility clinic], more bloodwork, AMH is worse (.36) but other numbers are fine-ish. laparoscopy all good
    Feb '21, injectables (menopur, novarel), iui, BFN (doc said the frozen donor sperm sample had the "best numbers she'd ever seen!")
    Mar '21, injectables, iui cancelled due to lack of follicles.
    May '21, first IVF round cancelled due to cyst.
    Currently planning for a July IVF cycle

  • @kiki047 GL tomorrow!!!  I think it's an exciting milestone to be making on Mother's Day weekend, one huge step along the journey... AFM, the keto is hard with FET prep because I was also prioritizing the functional foods like beets and pom juice (which I just took a couple tablespoons of a concentrate with water)  Nevermind the pineapple core! lol  But anyway, for the most part I guess it's been off to an okay start.  The types of foods I'm snacking on and my go-tos have all kind of shifted.  But then between being post transfer, and now pre-menstural lol Let's just say the treats are necessary and therapeutic at this juncture.  Hoping to have a fresh start once AF arrives... :/

    @BusinessWife oh I hear you on the treats and the "functional" foods as you call them. I was upset yesterday because my RE wants me to drink 3 bottles of Gatorade a day this week and for the 2 days following the ER so I ordered G zero with no sugar, but didn't notice they threw in a regular Gatorade in my online order so here I was chugging it thinking, man this stuff is great for having no sugar! -_-  well now I know why, lol.

  • lol @kiki047 Oh man, I feel your pain, we have totally been there.  That happened to us during DH's elimination diet, we got this nut-based coffee creamer that he was like, oh WOW, this one flavor is So Good!  Yep, totally sugared up.  One flavor was unsweetened, but then the other one wasn't.  Ugh.  That stuff happens all the time with grocery delivery, but I don't have to set foot in the store, so I won't complain (too much).  I was getting all this nice low-sugar, high-fat greek yogurt / skyr last time, and sure enough, they snuck some FAT FREE stuff in there along with it.  :neutral: Which never would have happened if I had been shopping myself. :/

  • Re: menstruation and men. I want one of these cramp simulators so I can make every dude I know try it out.
    I am doing this alone. Had my left ovary and fallopian tube removed due to cyst/necrosis just after birth. Right ovary and fallopian tube still purport to function.
    Began TTC in Aug '18 @ age 36
    5 or 6 (or 7?!) cycles using frozen donor sperm, ICI (turkey baster method). All BFN
    Mar-Jun '19 IUIs, all BFN
    Began process of referral for RE in spring of '19, blood tests confirm low AMH (.54) but all else is good.
    May '19 HSG shows open tube, but ultrasound suggests fibroids
    MRI in June '19 confirms two large fibroids, one growing through wall of uterus
    In June '19 I move from California to Oregon, disrupting my insurance, referrals, etc. 5 months spent piecing it all back together.
    Nov. '19 attempted myomectomy (vaginal approach) failed. 2nd surgery using laparoscopic method in Jan '20 is successful.
    April '20 --> June '20, natural IUIs, all BFN.
    July? saline ultrasound and bubble test demonstrate open tube
    July '20 clomid cycle cancelled for thin lining
    Aug-Oct, 3 femara cycles, all BFN
    Get an RE referral. While waiting to set up an appointment Nov-Jan, I continue with natural cycles and ICI, using a known donor, BFN...
    Jan '21 [fertility clinic], more bloodwork, AMH is worse (.36) but other numbers are fine-ish. laparoscopy all good
    Feb '21, injectables (menopur, novarel), iui, BFN (doc said the frozen donor sperm sample had the "best numbers she'd ever seen!")
    Mar '21, injectables, iui cancelled due to lack of follicles.
    May '21, first IVF round cancelled due to cyst.
    Currently planning for a July IVF cycle
