Lister Fertility Hospital IVF older mums - any joy?

Postby joeywallace45 » Tue Feb 04, 2020 3:30 pm

Has anyone had any joy at Lister, My AMH is 3.7 and I am 43 in a few weeks. I have a 7 year old daughter conceived naturally and have been trying for three years for a much wanted 2nd baby. I have also been to another clinic to try a super ovulation program (Mr Shehata at the Miscarriage Clinic in Epsom). Do they do loads of tests at the Lister (on male and females?). I have some tests I can take with me. I would just like to know what we are up for and how long I may need to wait before starting. I am booked into see them this week. I have had two miscarriages and one ectopic pregnancy and I am ready for this to happen now as feel I am running out of time quickly. Any advice would be more than welcome. thank you  :D

I’m sorry to hear of your struggles, it is awful experience to go through. I know you are after advice on the Lister, however, please have a look into Mr Nikolao. He is the lead consultant for fertility at Chelsea and Westminster and specializes in helping to achieve pregnancies in Women who are over 40. He helped us have our first child and I really do recommend him. Wishing you the best for your journey and I hope it’s all a success.

So sorry to hear of your struggle.

My (39 year old) best friend had been in a similar to you. Took a little time to conceive her first but wasn't happening second time around. She conceived via Lister and I know was delighted with the process. She Hope that this gives you some hope.

Sending you positive thoughts for a happy outcome.

Hi

I generally don’t post but I just thought I’d reply as my response is relevant to you I hope. I suffered several miscarriages and have one child naturally. I had my second child via ivf (3rd round) with the lister just after my 43rd birthday with my own pre tested eggs. My friend also had her first baby via ivf (1st round using frozen embryo) with them aged 43 with untested eggs.

Whatever you choose I wish you the best of luck.

Hi,

Im starting short protocol at lister in few weeks time,
Would appreciate if someone can give me rough timelime of the procedure? I do shift work so its so hard for me to book day off or change my shift last minute, so trying to be as organised as i can so that i can avoid stress later.
How many days did you inject for? And what day was your egg collection?
Is there any specific timing for the scans and blood tests?
How many scans and blood tests did you had after day 1 of inections?

Would really appreciate if anyone can reply, so that i can get an idea.

Love
Suzie01

Hi,

I'm very interested in your experience with Lister. I want to start IVF in September and thinking of trying either Lister or CRGH. Both clinics have high success rates for women over 40. 

I must say that I'm totally terrified of self-injecting. Would any of these clinics help with IVF injections? Or does anyone know of any private nurse who would be available to do the injections without charging a fortune?

Thank you!

Hi Susie01, I did two rounds of IVF at the Lister, and my body responded differently each time (18 days first time, 12 second time) so in terms of how many days it takes, I think it really depends on how your body responds to the treatment. The scans and blood tests happen at the same appointment, but are done by a sonographer and a nurse, so if they're busy (and they usually are!) you may end up having to wait a bit.  I think I had a couple of appointments each week. Feel free to DM me if you want to.

Pamela00, I also had a fear of injections when I first did IVF.  The nurse will show you how to do it, but then you're expected to just get on with it.  And I did, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.  Plus I had the thought of becoming pregnant to spur me on! I don't know of any private nurse who would do the injections I'm afraid.

For what it's worth, my 2 rounds at the Lister resulted in my two lovely girls.
