Default TTC After Fertility Meds

Hi Everyone,

I am new here. I have been TTC for 20 cy's now. My ob/gyn told me that I had bad eggs (I am 37) and would prob never get pg. I have had 7IUI's (one with clomid and 6 with follistim) and still nothing. We have decided not to go for IVF.

I was just wondering if anyone has gotten pg on their own after fertility meds?

Hi welcome to TBC!
 


I have not gotten pregnant and have used several fertility meds. I can tell you though, my cycles are what they were before I used any medications if that was maybe what you were asking?

I'm interested in knowing why your obgyn thinks you have bad eggs? I am assuming maybe it was from your FSH level? Please know I personally know of several ladies who lowered their fsh levels with diet and different vitamins.

If your fsh level is normal, the only true way to know if someone has bad eggs it to examine them during IVF. So.. if your doctor is telling you that's the reason your not getting pregnant, and he has no real backup to say that, I would truly seek a second opinion.

Welcome again.

Baby Hungry - Thanks for the welcome!
 
My ob/gyn told me that my FSH level is very high and that if I did get pg it would prob end in m/c. He then sent me over the an RE. I did get pg with my 3rd IUI (2nd on follistim) and it did end in m/c at 11 weeks. Now after 7 IUI's, I can no longer do any more.

I was just wondering if there was anyone out there like me.

I was told that my FSH was too high (after a clomid challenge test) and that I'd never get pregnant. I gave up. Stopped all drugs and got pregnant three cycles later.
