After IVF #1 I was told that I had poor egg quality. My RE was not as much of a proponent of CoQ10 as he was of DHEA (he said that both didn't really have a ton of clout that it worked). Anyway, I took CoQ10 and DHEA for about 6 weeks prior to my second IVF. The results were definitely worth it - I had much better embryo quality (they made it to blast however they were poorer quality still). I ended up getting pregnant but unfortunately I miscarried.

Did 6 clomid cycles w/IUI at PCRM from Sept. 2008 - June 2010
Made the switch to Genesis in October of 2010
2 super ovulation w/IUI cycles
both BFN
March 2011
waiting for AF for ultrasound and orientation for IVF!
ultrasound showed lining very thick so have to have a hysteroscopy before starting IVF ...
April 2011
waiting for AF so I can book hysteroscopy. Hysteroscopy done. All looked to be fine.
May 2011
AF arrived. Started nasal spray. Yuck! Waiting again for AF to start injections. Should be the beginning of June!
June 2011
cycle cancelled due to poor response and thick uterine lining. d&c to happen before next cycle can be done.

BFN

have to do 3 months of COQ10 and DHEA before proceeding.
Not sure if the CoQ10 worked but am quite sure the DHEA made things worse. Went off both vitamins after cycle was cancelled in May 2012.

May 2012
cycle cancelled due to poor response. advised to use donor eggs we're gutted. follow-up appt in June

Dr. Yuzpe said my ovaries are NOT done! No donor eggs necessary! Cautiously optimistic. Have to lose 25 lbs and then can try another cycle.

    I've had 3 failed IVF's and I am getting ready for a fourth one in a couple months. I am wondering how you all decided on what dosage to take for CoQ10 and DHEA.
