Mr and Mrs LML are a lovely couple from Singapore. They got married at 40 years old and have been trying for a child since. They had 3 failed IVF cycles and their fertility specialist in Singapore did not recommend her to try again with her own eggs as her FSH level was already very high. Her AMH levels (ovarian reserve indicator) were low which confirmed that she was nearing menopause.
Mrs LML went to numerous centres for a second opinion but decided to finally settle for Metro IVF as she had read and heard many good reviews. She finally decided to have an IVF with Egg Donor cycle with Metro IVF as she was very comfortable with the doctor and staff here.
Mrs LML commenced her cycle in March 2016. Her donor produced 16 mature oocytes which was then matched with her husband’s sperm via ICSI. 2 Grade 2 and 1 Grade 3 embryos were transferred on ET day and 3 embryos were frozen for future use.
In early April 2016, Mrs LML informed us that her BHCG was 116.4IU/L. When she repeated BHCG after another 4 days, it increased to 402IU/L. We advised her to go for a scan to detect the gestational sac and heartbeat. Unfortunately fetal heartbeat was continuously not detected till 8 weeks and D+C was scheduled.
Mrs LML was advised to rest for a few months before attempting FET with her remaining embryos.
In September 2016, Mrs LML started her FET cycle. FET was done with 2 Grade 2 and 1 Grade 3 embryos.
2 weeks later, she informed that she was pregnant again. Her BHCG was 238.8IU/L and progressed to 1355.2IU/L 4 days later.
Their family life is finally complete when she delivered her baby boy in June 2017.
