Hi all....just wanted to introduce myself. I'm 42 and have had one IVF ICIS which was disappointing....started with Menopur/Follistim and at retrieval had only one egg....it fertilized and grew normally and was implanted but not luck. Then the next cycle they put me on lupron and Gonal-F, that had the opposite effect and nothing happened, and the cycle was canceled. So I went to see my doc yesterday and she said we can try one more cycle with a new med protocol, but that she recommends we go with an egg donor. First I'm confused because up until now, they had told me everything about me is normal and healthy with plenty of eggs showing on my ultrasounds, normal bloodwork, etc. Now I realize that I'm not spring chicken here, but what the heck, This is all complicated by the fact that I have autoimmune thyroid disease, for which I take synthroid. My last cycle seems to have set off some kind of weird response in my thyroid and the doc didn't even address the fact that my thyroid might be causing problems. The darn thyroid is part of my endocrine system....any input is greatly appreciated! Thanks for "listening"?
