BFP (Twins) IVF 2 years ago, poor responder then - am I crazy to try again?

I am 38 and have 1 year old twins from my first IVF in 2011.
I was a poor responder so only had 7 eggs from the short protocol but all 7 fertilised!
We had 2 put back - both took and we had our darling DDs october 2011.

I am seriously considering starting another cycle but as I was such a poor responder 2 years ago I am really worried that I won't be producing eggs at all any more.
Last time we went to Blasto and sadly none of the others were good enough to freeze at that stage so we would have to start a fresh cycle again and as we are provate patients it is another 4K!

Has anyone else been in a similar situation and gone on to a BFP?? :)

If you are crazy you are not alone! I would so much love to try again even though I have a beautiful daughter and another little one on the way. So currently praying for the baby to be born healthy but still cannot forget about what if we would try again later.

7 eggs all fertilised means you have great quality eggs and I would say it is far from a poor response. I had more eggs to start with but many were immature and not all fertilised so you are much better. I also had 2 singleton pregnancies from 3 cycles whereas you had twins from one. A lot of ladies sadly have nothing from three cycles.

You don't have anything to lose apart from your money and invested emotions - but such a cycle should be a lot more relaxed than when the odds were whether to have children at all. Your children even have a sibling so you might be able to take it easy :-)

Good luck

xx Rianon

I agree with Rianon, that's not a poor response. All my cycles have been similar to yours getting 7-9 etc. it is quality that is important and you have quality there in spades. It is crazy that after trying for so long to have our first baby (ies) that we will go through it again...but I am already thinking the same and I promised myself I would settle just for my one miracle. Xx

Good luck with whatever you decide. X
