    I have one son from my first marriage... he's nearly 20.
    My partner has no children and we are desperate to have one.
    It's unexplained that I can not conceive.. except age!!!
    I pretty much ovulate .. the 75 gonal is just a extra help.
    I'm from Melbourne and my ultrasound this friday will be at Fremasons with DR Gronow.
    Where you from ?
    Good luck! and keep in touch.
    This forum seems so suportiv ..so many messages and good wishes =D>

    Hi sottovoce, I am 37 and have just had my second IVF attempt but no luck unfortunately. I've found the IVF journey is a huge rollercoaster with plenty of high's and lo's. One thing that has definitely kept me going and kept my spirits up is this board - everyone has been so supportive.

    I've been taking clomid as well as having puregon and orgalutran injections and had so many scans I've lost track of how many! I always get a bit nervous but I always remind myself that if I get the outcome I'm hoping for it will all be worth it.

    Lots of luck with your ttc journey :luck: - hopefully it's short one.

    tiamiami - I am in a similar situation to you. I am 37 with no kids yet but have a biological clock that's not just ticking but is screaming at me! I haven't had any luck via DI or IVF yet but am so excited about being a single mum, and that's taking into account that I'm sure there will be good times and bad. I wish you heaps of luck with your ttc journey and hope it's a short one. dust:

    sottovoce - good luck with your appointment at the clinic.

    Hi Scotvoce. An update from doctors appiontment on the U/S... This month is cancelled due to the size 10mm egg getting only four mm and the two 8 mm getting only 10 mm. My doctor is Dr. Michael Graubert in Palmetto hospital plaza in Hialeah, Florida. Let me know your update.

    sottovoce - hope your u/s went well.

    tiamiami - I went through two insemination attempts, first with no drugs, the second with clomid and no luck. My first IVF mid-year was using synaril nasal spray, puregon injections for 6 days and then a pregnyl trigger injection - had two eggs but only one was mature enough - it fertilised & transferred but no luck.

    The cycle that just finished was taking clomid for 5 days and puregon for 6 days - except the follices were still too small, so I had another 7 days of puregon injections - also having 7 days of orgalutran injections to stop me from ovulating - and then the pregnyl trigger injection. Still only got two eggs but both were mature. One was transferred and didn't take - the second didn't survive long enough to be frozen. And now I'm taking a break over Christmas and will have to look for a new Clinic because the one I've been at has run out of donors which is a real bummer.

    So sorry your current cycle had to be cancelled tia. What treatments have you been trying?

    Marg...
    My first cycle I did Clomid 100 mg on day 3 to 7 with one egg maturing. BFN!
    My second cycle Doc did Clomid again on cycle day 3 to 7 and then two injections each of Goanl F 150 iu. I did not have to take a trigger shot because I O on my own. In this cycle I created Two big eggs 20mm and 22mm with another BFN!
    Now I did the same for this cycle but as you know eggs did not mature so....cancelled.
    Doc is putting me on 4 injections of Bravelle 150 iu and also the Clomid on cycle day 3 to 7. So when I get AF I am to call nurse and she will tell me exactly what the sequence is. We just have to pray :-]....



    Scotvoce..... How did the Doctors appiontment go??? Any updates?
