I was wondering if anyone having or had IVF in Galway Fertility Clinic ?? I am about to embark on my IVF journey and naturally am getting nervous..
My story so far is ,we are blessed with a little princess who is now 3 no issues getting pregnant and had a smooth pregnancy and delivery. We started to try for a sibling and after over a year of trying I got pregnant which sadly ended in a missed miscarriage christmas a year a go.
We then decided it was time to get things checked out and went to Galway Fertility Clinic under Dr Eithne Lowe on the recommendation of a GP friend. After all the tests nothing conclusive showed up all normal just FSH on the high side of normal.
After 2 failed TSI and 2 failed IUI nothing.. Dr Lowe on our last visit believes its to do with my egg quality (Im 37) so all thats left if IVF. We have to watch a 2 hour DVD in the clinic and meet a nurse for prescriptions etc next month and then hope to start in March or May.
Dr Lowe recommended getting a procedure which causes injury to the lining of the uterus to promote healing the month before IVF this is to help implantation.
While doing a little research online today I found alot of posts (UK, US sites mainly) about taking DHEA and COQ10 Supplements which is supposed to improve egg quality.
Dr Lowe didnt recommend any supplements too me so I will call her on Monday to see should I be taking anything but just wondering if anyone has ever taken these for poor quality eggs and if you have had any success????
Would love to hear any success stories in Galway Fertility Clinic or beyond.??? Im trying to keep positive that this will work, but after the last 4 procedures failing I try not to get my hopes up as the disappointment really knocks you for one. I haven't told anyone about our struggle other than the 1 person who is GP friend who is really busy and lives in another county so I dont like to bother her too much, just keep her posted on progress.
to all and here's hoping 2016 will be our year
