Last night, Dr. Robert Kiltz, who owns CNY Fertility Center and Spa, called me and said he wanted to schedule a phone consult with me for Saturday morning. He said he was reviewing my file and would call me. This morning, as promised, he called to discuss my latest failed cycle and to make a plan to move forward.
He wants me to try one more cycle with my own eggs prior to moving on to donor eggs. He feels that I have good equality and is happy that he sees all my embryos making to blast. He feels that I need to do a few things:
– Add Saizen / human growth hormone to my cycle to improve maturation and egg quality
– Use neupogen post transfer
– Do a neupogen wash
– Do a Hysteroscopy with biopsy
– Do an endometrial scratch on day two of my cycle to improve implantation
– Continue on an estrogen priming protocol
– Use 300 Gonal-F and 300 Menopur with Lupron for stims again
I have decided to give my own eggs one more last shot while I am saving up for a donor egg cycle. I am going to detox my body first. All of these hormones have take a toll on my body. I am going to start a protein train on Monday (protein shakes only, apple sauce, sf popsicles, sf jello, water, diluted apple juice, oatmeal). I will actually start by drinking only water with lemon, cayenne pepper and grade A maple syrup for two days to detox my body from my sugar habit. It really does work ! By drinking loads of the lemon cayenne tea, it cuts sugar cravings and helps you follow the Bariatric diet more easily.
For those that did not know, I had gastric bypass surgery March 31, 2004. When I follow a strict diet for short periods, it helps me refocus and I also drop weight pretty quickly. I want to get back to my starting weight prior to starting stims. I should be able to drop the few pounds I have gained due to the hormones. It can only help with my quest to get pregnant. Weight loss releases the hormones that are stored in body fat back into the bloodstream. This is why a lot of women who became infertile due to obesity find themselves pregnant unexpectedly after gastric bypass, lapband, or significant weight loss.
Ironically, one of my friends out of the blue reached out to me late yesterday and said that God had laid on their spirit to relay to me to hold on…. that my bundles of joy were on the way. I told my friend to go back and relay a message for me… I will hold on, but can He speed up this timeline ! lol
