    Hi all. I am back again in my 3rd fresh cycle. But not getting hopeful. Was thinking how to proceed next if this cycle gonna fail me again. i'm gg 43 soon and what i understand for ppl above 40, we only have 5 chances of ivf. Afterwhich, may have to sought approval from MOH to continue. Would you suggest that i stay on with KKH or go pte???

    If your currently on fresh transfer, then maybe wait for 2-3 cycles. If u did FET, u can do the next FET after 1-2 cycles

    U can still do ivf after 40 just no Govt subsidy. Spore do not allow ivf after 45 but u can appeal with the help of your gynae. He/she can write in to Moh to appeal but subject to approval. If there are no more subsidy just go pte.

    please check with your doctor if you can consume DHEA and Royal Jelly as it's not suitable for all. e.g. those with PCOS

    This is also maybi not suitable for all. Best to check with gynae on ubiquibol and dhea if you are suitalbe for it before taking.

    For me Low dose stimulation works. Tcm, and whatever supplement/ food didn’t help. So really depends on individual

    You can still do ivf regardless in Govt or private hospital. Just that the Govt subsidies is capped at 3 fresh and 3 frozen cycle & Medisave is being capped at 15k per lifetime. If all is being exhausted, u just need to cough up all in cold cash regardless in private or Govt hospital .

    I read that someone does 8 or 10 tries in ivf. Only 45 yo & above have to seek permission from ministry of health

    I agree really vary among individual, i did TCM before the cycle to build up my body cos my immune was very low last time, now i feel better cos i seldom fall sick now as compare to last time. I have PCOS so my egg quality is really bad which can see from the first cycle. I will check with my ivf doc to see how the next cycle protocol/stimm should go and any supplements to take when i see her in March. Jia you ladies don give up!!

    PCOS cannot take DHEA and royal jelly. I also have same issues and checked this with THH before. I tried ubiquinol but doesn't make much difference for me. some research say maybe the dosage not enough but I get some side effects if dosage is too high. so cannot conclude personally on ubiquinol.

    Thank you for highlighting :) any supplements you taking? what is the dosage for the ubiquinol you took and what side effects?

    I believe in gluten free diet n no harm trying. An expat Friend ttc for many yrs and failed ivf many times. She switched to gluten free diet n BFP naturally. I also have my first ever implantation after doing many cycles. Can give it a try. It’s good for overall health as well

    Hi, Im with SGH CARE and seeing Dr Yu for my first IVF which unfortunately was BFN.
    She is very stern looking but nice to talk to.
    U will only see her during consultation, ER and ET as she is usually very busy.
    The nurses at CARE are great!

    Will be seeing her again for the review for the failed IVF and seeking advise on what to do next.
