Wow! Thread IV na! Thanks Sis Abel823 for creating again this new thread.

Sis newbeymum, sa St. Luke's QC ka ba magli-LIT sis? Ako, this Tuesday ang first consultation ko with Dra. Aleta for 2012. I would know by then if I would need to repeat the tests for APAS, ANA and all other tests she asked me to take last 2010. Definitely, magLIT na ako but perhaps sa Thursday kase yung donor ko will have to be screened ulet. I am going to use donor which I've done previously in the last 3 sessions I had because Hindi nag-increase ang leukocytes antibodies ko with husband after 3 sessions. May Don Santiago pa ba si Dra ng Saturday, would you know?

About IVF in Taichung, my husband and I are still deciding between CARMI and Taichung but as of the moment we're leaning more with Taichung. Nag-email na ko ke Mr. Hung and is now waiting for his response. Batchmate tayo sis. When ba plan mo to go to Taichung? Pang-ilang LIT mo na ba?

hi sis paradise11 i will have my 2nd LIT at Dr Aleta's clinic in SLMC. But the thing is im not so sure kung yun blood extraction eh sa clinic pa ba nya or yun sinasabi na ililipat sa may katipunan sa may Elizabeth Hall kase ililipat daw yun machine nya. so i need to call her clinic by tom. Hope to meet you on tuesday. Im not so sure also sis about her other clinic schedule ang alam ko lang talaga yun sa SLMC since mas malapit ako dun kase im from quezon city lang. My target month for my IVF is Decemebr before the year ends basta mag ok na yun LAT ko mahirap ng magmadali eh.. Kaya i would really like to go to taichung for the IVF but the thing is marami akong obligasyon dito sa pinas na di ako basta basta makaka alis ng bansa ng medyo matagal ako lang kase ang inaasahan para mag tingin sa mom ko who is a CA patient and yun family business namin ako lang din ang naaasahan ng tatay ko kaya naku dagdag sa iisipin ko kay pag nasa malayo ako lugar kaya better kung dito lang. Have you tried visiting CARMI and consult ka na kay Dr novero? ok actuslly yun facilities nya since bago and hospital based compared to other IVF center but the thing is im considering the years of experience ng mga staff.. sana lead tayo ni Lord sa tama hirap talaga ang nasa ganitong sitwasyon minsan parang feeling ko wala na atang pupuntahan kaso i just cant give up and the only thing that im holding on is my faith with the Lord.. Good luck sis..God bless..

^ Sige tawag na din ako tomorrow ke Melvy yung secretary nya sa SLMC-QC. Sige kita tayo sa Tuesday. Manggagaling pa ako ng office to make it to the 3-5pm clinic nya. Tama di ba? Hindi pa naman nagbago sched nya sa SLMC QC?

Good luck, sis, sa dami ng responsibilities mo. Ganun talaga. We just have to juggle and prioritize. Sana matuloy nga tayo sa Taichung ng December. But we're planning to also still consult Dr. Novero para if we decide na Taichung na sure na sure na kami dahil nagcompare kami between Taichung and CARMI. Hindi yung nagdecide Lang without doing research and comparison.

See you this Tuesday! :)

Hi! Im a newbie in the thread.
I found relief while reading the past threads. I was pregnant days ago.Just last saturday, July 14, my tvu showed a good heartbeat at 7w6d. On july 17 I went back to see my ob kasi I feel itchy. Its sad kasi wala ng heartbeat si baby. Wala pa akong baby. Had 3 previous pregnancies, all blighted. I never knew then that I have APAS. But in my recent, im into heparin & aspirin and LIT as well. Dr Aleta has high hopes na The pregnancy will push thru this time. kaso di pa rin.
What makes me thankful is my supportive husband. He keeps assuring  me that the loss won't change anything between us. He even tells me na i try n namin ang ivf.
I still have my baby inside me and still waiting to bleed. To keep my mind busy, Im reading this very useful thread at nabubuhayan ako ng pag asa whenever I see successful stories.
Anything worth having is worth waiting for. Happy waiting!

 Hi sisses, Thread 4 na pala... matagal di nakapagpost kasi i had such a hard time dealing with the dissappointment of a negative PT...then dami na work.
mid 40's na kasi ako, and when i wrote dr lee abt their experience in dealing with cases like me, they wrote me that chances of conceiving with my own eggs were just 5-10%...better chances daw with an egg donor... nakita ko yun exact letter dito  in an earlier thread....but me and hubby discussed it and we still pushed thru with the procedure...with my own eggs... yun feeling mo, sige try na rin, but don't get your hopes up masyado. then when we got there. like what our sisses said, dami patients...impressed din si hubby kay dr lee kahit di nya masyado maintindihan yun english nya. Univ of Pennsylvania research fellow pala si dr lee...1984. on embryology...kano kasi si hubby. anyway, with the meds, i was able to have 24 eggs harvested, so salamat at nangingitlog pa pala ako. then 16 was fertilized. 3 transferred...so throughout, pataas na ng pataas yun hope mo...tapos dissapointment, i was crushed to put it lightly, iyak ako ng iyak. anyway, i'm slowly getting over it and moving on. i wrote dr lee abt my pregnancy test and asked what my chances are to try again. he reviewed my case and sabi nya ok daw eggs , ovary and uterus ko so try again...as of now, pupulutin ko pa muna yun lakas ng loob ko, papalakas, magiipon ng positive thoughts before i think of trying agian....hay, sana mabilis lang kasi nakakahiya na yun age ko.

but in fairness, 2 out of 4 preggy sa amin dun sa mga alam ko. my hubby wants to try again and this time stay 5 weeks, wait for the PT there....magrice cooker nlang :-)

hello po mga sis newbie po. i'm so glad to discover this forum. im inspired by all the successful stories and journeys of our other sisses and sad naman kapag ng eendure ng mga trials.me and hubby are both 34.eight years na kami married.never ako naging pregnant.at that time wala naman problem sa akin, si hubby medyo mababa ang count, mababa din percentage ng motility at morphology ng sperm.wala naman siya varicocele.magvitamins na lang daw.last check up namin was i think 2009 or 2010. we had 3 IUIs lahat failed.i have to deal with a lot of emotional hurts everytime we fail.we stopped muna kasi hindi na namin kaya emotionally at financially.we still hoped that we can conceive naturally pero hindi pa rin. :'(

now we have enough money na ulit, we are considering ivf na. nagback read naman ako sa thread very helpful mga information shared by all of you and after discussing with my husband we decided that we want to go to taiwan.

sino po kaya OB dito sa pinas pwede magrequest ng mga test na kailangan para sa medical summary needed sa taiwan?kasi po all we have are the semenalysis results, HSSG xray and ultrasound reports way back 2010 pa. sana po maraming mag advice sa amin. we are hoping that we can go to taiwan nov or dec this year or early next year.thanks po in advance.... God bless us all.

^hi sis gumball, i'm sorry that you have to go the ivf route but don't lose hope, your dream will soon come true basta don't give up lang. regarding your question about the tests, actually no need to do the tests, just email them what you have on hand and start from there. their website is www.ivftaiwan.com or email them at [email protected].

good luck, sis!  :)

Thanks Mommymandy sa inspiration, I have finally decided to go with Dr. Pastorfide.  Will also do a consultation with the embryologist sa Victory, nakausap mo rin ba embryologist before ka nagstart stimulate?  I want to feel kasi yung clinic and see anong itsura, since nsa isang building lang naman take advantage ko na to visit, free naman consultation eh so go na ako this Thursday.  Ang bilis ng pangyayari pero I am taking it a step at a time.  Wish me well mga sis :)
Thank u!

Sis Gumball, tama si sis Wesley. I am also planning for an IVF currently. I already wrote to Dr. Lee using the email address provided by sis Wesley and Mr. Hung, on behalf of Dr. Lee, will email you back. He will give you instruction on what you will do. While waiting for his response you may want to start preparing or drafting your infertility profile and that of hubby. Better if you have your previous records with you to help you in writing your profile. If you have your OB with you throughout your TTC journey then maybe you can ask her to draft for you. Ako kase since I keep my exam results (e.g. Hysterosalphingograms, pathological doc of my ectopic pregnancy, etc.) I drafted my own profile and just showed my RE and then got her confirmation. I sent my profile and that of hubby's to Mr. Hung. He came back with instructions. Ganun din siguro ang gawin mo sis. Check the site and send an email of your inquiries. Mabilis naman sumagot si Mr. Hung. Hope sabay tayo this December! Good luck to us!

^^sis nique321 please post updates.. up to now kasi di pa rin kami decided kung san magpapa ivf.
sis paradise - in case we do it in taiwan, baka december din kami, sana magkasabay tayo. I still have to undergo a surgery pa..I have 7 myomas, though sabi ni OB di naman sya ganun kalaking threat sa pregnancy, its better to remove na daw if we plan to have ivf.
