Failed IVF - 3 rounds

(5 Posts)

Hello - looking for some advice/to hear about other's experiences....

I'm 35 years old and my husband and I have just been through our third failed IVF cycle. My husband and I have a "normal" fertility profile for our age (he is also 35). There is a little DNA fragmentation in his sperm but we are told this should not be a barrier - he has been on Proxseed for 18 months.

Through IVF and ICSI and circa 40 eggs, we have produced one good quality blast which did not take. We are told we are extremely unlucky in this regard. We discovered on cycle 3 that I overproduce LH and progesterone in my cycle which complicates doing a fresh transfer - I have an asynchronous uterus as a result of this issue.

The doctor recommends for my 4th cycle long down regulation and a day 3 transfer of two embryos, freezing any others.

They have tried a varying stimulation protocol and I am with CARE London.

Does anyone have any advice from their experiences? Would anyone recommend a doctor who was particularly good on the embryo quality side of things? Did down regulation work for those who "over leutinize"? Views on day 3 transfers vs 5? Thanks a lot....

I don't have the answers to your questions, I'm sorry. But I would say there is a wealth of expertise on the infertility forum of mumsnet. Fertility friends is another forum specialising in fertility treatments.

I didn't want you to not have any replies for your questions!!

Hi @physicskate thanks for your message. I can't actually find the infertility forum - am new to this. Where can I find it?

If you're in the app: press topics at the bottom. Then 'becoming a parent' and infertility is in that section...
