I'm sorry that they recommended IVF, that's definitely a bummer. It wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion from another fertility specialist before jumping in, some fertility doctors can really differ in opinions.

My fingers are crossed that you will be pregnant and have a healthy baby by the end of this year!

Poor egg quality

Postby Lee Ann » Thu Feb 17, 2011 02:56 pm

Well, my husband and I have been trying to concieve for almost a year again.....that's how long it took with my first pregnancy. Finally, I just said I am tired, made an appointment with a fertility specialist, and did a Clomide challenge test. The result was: poor egg quality. The good news is that my ovaries responded well to the clomide which raised my estradiol levels which helps to stimulate the ovaries to release eggs. But the real question is how many of those eggs are good quality eggs. Since there is really no way of knowing this my husband and I have decided (as of now) to try IVF. She gave me the statistics of what my odds are of trying to concieve without any given help in any given month-5%. With clomide then there would be a 10% chance. So not great. With IVF my odds jump to 50% given my age and the regularity of my cycles. It has been 2 yrs since my last pregnancy. Olivia my daughter in heaven would have been 2 years old this June. It's hard to believe it will be two years. I have waited the recommended time with my prior experience with preeclampsia. It's now or never. With each year that passes my odds will be even slimmer. So wish me luck everyone because I do think I will need it.
