What is my potential success with IVF at 40 Yrs old? (we

What is my potential success with IVF at 40 Yrs old? (we have not tried naturally as we are separated due to him not getting permanent residence here yet, and rather than wait until he can come here - I could find myself close to 42 at that time - we have decided to try IVF right away, since I have 1 month to spend there with him in July).Day 2 FSH was 5.8, LH was 4.2, Prolactin 11.8, AMH (still waiting for results). TSH normal, no abnormalities on last Gyn / Pap.TVS: Ovarian Vol R-5.93 ml, L-5.00 ml. Endometrial Thickness .4 cm (TVS done on day 8)Mens. Regular 26 Days cycles and 3 day periods (monitored last 6 months).I have been on DHEA for several weeks now, and will have been on it x 2 months at egg retrieval (if we get that far in mid Jul). Also taking DHA, COQ10, Full Prenatal Vitamin with Folate, Zinc etc. Oral Contraception started last Day 2 (right after the blood tests) which was May 18.Antral Follicle count was not mentioned on U/S report, however I will include the sonographer notes and they did mention "small follicles" but no number mentioned. Also there is something under Lt Ovary saying technically difficult (it was sitting high) and I can't make out what is under the checkmark. It looks like peri EV. and worried that is something bad.I am wondering is 5.9 ml and 5.0 ml an ok volume as predictor to success with IVF? I read that smaller means less chance of responding to the stimulation meds. Is 5.9 and 5 small or normal? And taking into consideration no elevation in day 2 FSH... do you think so far that there is a good chance of success?Included sonographer notes, and an image of both L and R ovary on TVS.Notes/Screen: http://s33.postimg.org/bthdcenvz/notes.pngSonographer Notes: http://s33.postimg.org/5xx2zv4a7/notes1.pngLOvary1: http://s33.postimg.org/arhao3hpr/image.pngLOvary2: http://s33.postimg.org/j4iuoe8hb/image.pngROvary1: http://s33.postimg.org/fkss47xbj/image.pngROvary2: http://s33.postimg.org/bu21k8u3z/image.png

I was treated with a UTI a month ago and it showed the

Hello I was treated with a UTI a month ago and it showed the following:Mixed Gram Positive Organisms 10,000-50,000 cfu/mLSusceptibilities not performedDoes this mean I had a true UTI? Symptoms started with full blown UTI pain as if I had a kidney infection (which I was treated for 3 years ago in the ER and all was cleared). However, one month later I am still having a dull, achy urethral pain/frequency as if I still have to urinate. Had 2 urine tests after that came back negative, but 3rd came back positive for WBC (4-10) and leukocytes (small). I am 43 years old and have also been on birth control pill which I stopped 3 weeks ago. Current gyno said I had vaginal atrophy from bc pill which caused all of this (does not think I have a UTI) and put me on Vagifem 2x a week for a "slow buildup". He said the symptoms should "resolve spontaneously" and to give it time.My questions are: Did I have a UTI in the beginning? Would vaginal atrophy cause urethral symptoms for this long? Will this resolve if I do not take the Vagifem? I have taken 2 pills so far. Should I just give it more time? I have not had a true period since stopping bc and am worried I am in perimenopause?

I have a question please, as I am concerned about my period. I'm

I have a question please, as I am concerned about my period.I'm 43 and 5 months ago I had an endometrial polyp removed. My periods come regularly but after the polyp removal they were not very well, sort of little flow and started to get better about a month ago.This month tho, the period came but there is no flow as such, just every now and then when I use the toilet. Is that a reason of concern? I tested my day 2-5 FSH, oestradiol etc. last year twice and also a couple of months ago and always was within the limits, I keep having cervical mucus every month and period symptoms as normal.I am concerned, what can this be? According to my test results I've been told that I have years until I hit the peri-menopause. Should I be concerned now? Could be normal to have a month or two without flow? I've never had much flow with my periods ever, I used to fill in a pad or two maximum per period. Could be lifestyle? I don't do much physical activity lately as I used to do a year ago.Any suggestions please?Thank you!
