Default Several IVF attempts...can you relate?

Hello, I am new to the message board. I have been trying to conceive my second child for over 2 years. I have attempted ivf 5 times....canceled before retrieval 3 times...one embryo transfer with neg. pregnancy after 2 weeks...and just recently, no fertilized eggs after retrieval. On 450 FSH and 150 HMG for 5-7 days, I produce only 2-3 large follicles.

Can anyone relate? My RE does not want to pursue additional treatment without donor eggs. Honestly, think he is worried about his success rate. I just switched REs when I moved from Chicago to a smaller community due to my husband's work. I am in my early 30's. My first child was from spontaneous conception, although, it did take us about one year to conceive. No endo or other problems found...recent diagnosis was ovarian reserve, just running out of eggs. I am having a hard time accepting that I can not have a second child, especially when I just gave birth 2 1/2 years ago. (And, it goes without saying, that I look at I am very grateful to have a child...maybe I already had my miracle.)

Anyone with similar results? Anyone have low follicle production with high dosages?

Much appreciated...anything you can share, even your successes.

Hello winefancy, welcome to the boards, sorry about the circumstances under which you have to join.
 
, I can relate to the desperation and want for a sibling for your child, this is what drove me to Japan to do a FET. I pray that something gives and you are able to have the pregnancy you deserve. Hopeful this new RE will have a protocol that is tailored to your needs. Wishing you the best.

Welcome to the board! I just finished my first cycle with negative results and am getting ready to begin a cycle with FET (Frozen Embryo Transfer-to answer Winefancy's ?). I was lucky enough to make some eggs, but can realte to the disappointment around infertility in gerneral. If you aren't ready to look into donor eggs, I'd get second opinions and see an accupunturist, etc. It may be that you need different meds to stimulate-I'm not sure...I have talked with several people who have used donor eggs and they are just as thrilled to be pregnant as any other woman I've talked to...so keep an open mind if you can! This is such a challenging process-try to keep your spirits up and use this board whenever you need it!
