    Best of luck to you! I'm in a similar boat. 41 with 5 failed IVFs Doctors are pushing donor eggs but I want to try at least one more time with my little old eggs. Keep us updated

    Dear Tooold (....Not at all in fact)

    Clomid (or Clomiphene Citrate) is a drug used to help women ovulate. Clomiphene is an oestrogen-like hormone that acts on the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and ovary to increase levels of FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) and luteinizing hormone (LH, which is also important in the process of ovulation) to help to produce one or more eggs in a cycle.

    80% of women with irregular ovulation or anovulation will ovulate with Clomid and about 70-75% will become pregnant after 6-9 cycles. Good luck.

    Hi, I am very sorry you are facing trouble ttc. A friend of mine got pregnant using de when she was 41. She decided not to waste time and picked a fertility clinic abroad. I know ladies have doubts doing this and I advise to wait until you feel completely comfortable going this route. I think you should look at http://www.eggdonationfriends.com/egg-donation-news/ that gives you insight in de and other stuff. Good luck!

    Two week wait is killing me! Trying to be positive. Mind ticks over all the time, imagining I feel different. Had one morning of sickness., but probably caused by all the progesterone and estrogen I'm taking. 4 more days to wait trying not to do a hpt!

    Hi, I am sorry about your loss. Have you considered doing PGS NGS to decrease the risk of mcs? Good luck!

    The blood tests are more sensitive plus a lot can happen in 2 days, especially if you just had a late implanter. Hang in there! And Good Luck

    TooOld, technically by 13dp2dt / 10dp5dt the HPT should show, however it depends on the HPT as well. I've heard a couple of stories of ladies having negative HPT more than a week after Beta was +...best go for blood test today and GL!
