Makino, I really think there will still be a chance with another cycle of IVF.
I am also 38 going on 39 come june, and just managed to conceive through my 1st cycle of IVF with Dr Sadhana with twins! I am now 9 weeks preggie. I believe it is more of us patients and the gynae is around to provide advice if we need so. Every failure is a chance to review what we can do better the next round. I started with a SO-IUI and I was responsive to Puregon ( a bit too responsive, maybe). We were advised to convert to IVF, but we were totally unprepared, so we gave up that round. We went on to 2 rounds of unsuccessful IUIs before finally decided to embark on the IVF journey. I was glad I did the SO-IUI with good response first and I was put on the short protocol. Actually on the 2nd round of Puregon, my body did not respond as well and I only had 6 eggs extracted and 5 of them fertilised.
If any of you ask me, I would say my preparation started 4 years ago when I stopped drinking cold and icy drinks. Even on a hot day, I try to avoid cold drinks. And I gradually reduce my intake of ice cream. These are advices from my aunties and mother, but I believe there is some truth in womb preparation as they are all mothers.
So dont give up, all TTCers!
Hi ladies, I am new here. Basically, I've undergone 6 IVF attempts - 3 in Australia, and 3 in Singapore. We've had 1 ectopic, 3 miscarriages and 2 non pregnancies, but we've finally passed the first trimester for the first time! Wish us luck!
However, my purpose for posting here is to garner support for the legalisation of egg freezing for all women. Opinions voiced by doctors like Dr Tay Eng Hseon only makes things harder for people who have trouble trying to concieve. We need to speak out against such dissenters!
I should also add that Dr. Ann Tan is also fighting to legalize PGD (pre-implantation genetic diagnosis) so that we can screen embryos and select only the ones that are viable. This will mean less $$ and heartache for all of us undergoing an already painful and expensive process.
Look forward to your support at my facebook page!
Please check out my Facebook opinion piece, comment and like it if you can - my dr, Dr Ann Tan, is fighting for this legislation and believes that we can do it with enough voices. Thank you!

I would say Dr Sadhana is a very experienced and friendly gynae, and her nurse told me she's always on the dot. Do not waste time of her patients. Do bear in mind that gynaes see a lot of patients and in between they have to conduct e.g. ET for patients, so I really do not expect my gynae to remember my details. Too bad Dr Sadhana cannot attend to me as my due date is end of the year and she's away, so I'll be changing to another gynae (Dr Kosher Goh) on my next appt.
I understand how sad and dissappointed you must be with the outcome of your IVF. Please take a good break, maybe a holiday, enjoy yourself and on your next appointment have a good discussion with your gynae on what other options you may have. I wish you success on the next try!
Babydust to all ladies!
