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 :-)
