    Good day Nicole@Nicole. Am still waiting for the reply from arkdoctors@thearkdoctor. Thanks

    Wao…big congrats @Esha. You will carry to term. Wishing you an uneventful 40weeks. Pls can you kindly tell me why you couldn’t transfer in the previous 2? I recently had a procedure and I couldn’t transfer. Did you use same hospital for the 3 procedures? Thanks and congrats once again

    Alright @Nicole. Thanks

    Good day doctors @ark. I did an IVF with a hospital earlier this year, the procedure was halted on day 5 cos the embryos stopped growing after day 3. The said it was cos o tested positive to HbAg. They advised I used a donor instead. Please I want to find out if HbAg can have such effect on embryos. I want to try again, should I try with my eggs?…[Read more]

    None yet. But they encouraged me to try again, maybe with a donor egg. Maybe when we might have gathered cash we may consider that

    • Just take some time to recover and regroup, @esty hun. It’s not easy…financially, but especially physically. By the time you’re ready, everything will fall into place. Whether you use your own eggs or donor, everything will work out just the way it’s supposed to :hug:

    Thanks Nicole for your concerns. I dont know the value for the AMH but the test results wrote ‘fair ovarian reserve’. For the FSH the value is 6.69. My DH motility was quite low but after the ‘preparation’ it shoot up to 65% which was fantastic according to the Dr. The Dr said the issues are either chromosomal abnormalities or issues with the…[Read more]

    • I see. Sending you :hugs: , @esty hun. It’s not easy…especially not in this economy. Have they proposed a plan going forward?

    Am really depressed. My day 4 embryo didnt get to marula. We are asked to come back today being day 5 to know if they were improvements but alas it seemed like it got worst. The conclusion- entire cycle cancelled, all savings gone! Does anyone know what could have happened to the embies on day 4? I appreciated the my clinic’s honesty cos i learnt…[Read more]

    • @esty, I am so so sorry to read this. But it’s true…your clinic needs to be commended for their honesty. A lot of clinics would have proceeded with the transfer regardless. As for what happened, I can only guess it’s the same thing that happened with my 1st cycle. A lot of clinics don’t have the facilities to take embryos to blastocyst stage.…[Read more]

    The egg collection was don’t on Monday. Transfer is scheduled tomorrow. Am so depressed. The dr said the embies are not doing so well at the morula stage. Am hoping a miracle happens before tomorrow

    • @esty hun, let’s keep our fingers crossed for a miracle hun. The same thing happened with my first cycle. The embies that were doing so well suddenly dropped in quality at morula stage. But it is well. Let’s hope for the best hun. How many are you transferring?

  • esty posted a new activity comment 3 years, 11 months ago

    I can’t remember him mentioning the ovarian reserve being low. I responded well to the stim drugs. 17 follicles were sighted on 8 of the stimming. Am keeping my fingers crossed and praying this brings my twins

    • @esty dear, I’m joining you in prayers for a :bfp: :cloud9: :cloud9: . Your doctor must have his reasons for putting you on the short protocol, because for someone who responds well, it isn’t the obvious choice. When is your egg collection?

    Goodmorning buddies. AF came much earlier than expected. I visited my clinic yesterday. I was started on Bruserelin short protocol. Any advantage of the short/long protocol? I learnt the short protocol is for older ladies, am 29yrs.

    • @esty love, so so sorry I missed this! Just seeing it now. What were your AMH and FSH levels? If your ovarian reserve is low, that might be why they suggested the short protocol. It is for women they think might be poor responders. It’s mainly older women, but some younger women also have low ovarian reserve. Did your doctor give you a reason why?

    Aii Oluwakemi, I will sure do. Thanks once again

  • esty posted a new activity comment 4 years ago

    @oluwakemine. Thanks for your wishes dear. Am not sure of the exact day in March that I will be starting. I will be having a schedule with them this weekend and I believe I will be told all about how the treatment will go. Thanks for the article you sent. Its quite informative I must say. Pls a quick question…? I intend starting my treatment…[Read more]

    • Hi Esty @esty, no problem with your question. When and how long you will down regulate is dependent on the results of your preliminary assessment, your risk of OHSS and your doctor’s assessment of these factors. Meanwhile, your cycle might be timed to your natural cycle or not, which is what your current schedule shows to be likely.

    We paid 80k for the registration and are to pay 900k for the treament and procedure. I learnt they will be having a promo in March (780k).

  • esty posted a new activity comment 4 years ago

    Thanks for the reply Nicole. Cost was a major factor that informed our decision for Trucare. We visited Olive branch at Lekki but the cost they gave us was not what we could afford. When we visited Trucare, their fee was within our budget. Av undergone the preliminary tests with them, getting ready to starting treatments next week. Any particular…[Read more]

    • On first impressions, neither @oluwakemine and I got a positive feeling from the place. I also am yet to hear of any success story from there. But that said, it’s not enough to write them off completely. If you’re comfortable with them, we can only hope for the best as we cheer you along :hugs: . If you don’t mind me asking, how much is their cycle now?

  • esty posted an update in the group Group logo of IVF BuddiesIVF Buddies 4 years ago

    Good day everyone. Am new here….I will be starting my cycle next month with Trucare V.I. Any tips for a successful cycle? Anyone using Trucare here?

    • Welcome to our family, @esty :friends: . We’re always delighted to be of assistance hun! As for Trucare…hmm, too be honest, it’s not one of the clinics I would highly recommend. Any reason for using it?
