I am 44 years old and have been on the infertility roller coaster for the past 4 years. 2 pregnancies(one was achieved naturally and one IUI) ended in early misscarriages and were found to be chromosomally abnormal. To my knowledge, I have been pregnant 3 additional times, all seeming to be chemical pregnancies. My husband and I have both had genetic testing, nothing unusual was found. We have been told that we have had bad luck. The only other explanation is poor egg quality due to my age. We have recently undergone 2 IVF attempts. In the first one I had 5 follicles, 5 eggs retrieved, 4 fertilized( all good quality), 4 transfered on day 3, no pregnancy. 2nd IVF attempt was last month, 6 follicles, 2 eggs retrieved, 1 fertilized, 1 transfered on day 3, positive pregnancy test 12 days later, then told that hcg levels stopped rising, just finished my period. We have 1 more IVF attempt left which should begin the week of July 10. Is there any way for you to consult with us before then? We can get our extensive medical records to you ASAP. Our only other option after seems to be an egg donor. Time is ticking...please help!
