Even though this board has been quiet since my original posting, I still check on occassion to see if anyone else is here, because the 'over 40 / high FSH' board is ok, but since I have a child I feel I have to had that since they're ttc#1. And the additional emotional component of ttc#2 "gee, you should be happy you have any kids at all!" they don't get it. And for me, I'm an SMC, single mother by 'choice', my DS is through a sperm bank and I have four samples of the same donor, i can't through them out and the possibility of a sibling for my DS. Today I got 'bad' news. I went on provera and got a hiccup of a/f for two days, CD3 u/s showed 8 antral follies and I was hopeful. Started on 225IU but the boards all said no, low-stim is the way to go. So I dropped to 75IU, and today, CD7, got an u/s and it was a wastelane, a desert, no lining, no follicles, she couldn't even find antrals. She wants me to go back to the original 225IU, and took and E2 level which I'm sure will only support her 'you're in menopause get a reality check' attitude. I fear the results. donor egg is not a realistic option since I'd already using donor sperm. It would make more sense to adopt, but a single mother has a hard time adopting unless I'm rolling in dough. So I walk this path alone, and w/o the same type of support I found on the boards when ttc#1. So I"m glad you two showed up. Even for a quick check.
