Hi all. I know this question has been posted in various ways already but I was hoping to reach out on this forum as I’m quite distressed about my situation. I was recently diagnosed with CML 4 months ago as my partner and I were trying for a child. My doctor advised that I freeze embryos and get on the treatment for at least 2-3 years but that will put me at 40-41 years old. We just finished 2 IVF cycles and only managed to freeze 3 embryos so I feel my chances of pregnancy when I’m able to get off treatment are low. And certainly my chances for 2 kids seems out the window if I am relying solely on the frozen embryos.
I guess my question to this forum is whether anyone has experience similar to this at a similar age? And also, are my eggs completely ruined by the treatment or is there a chance of a natural pregnancy still after 2-3 years treatment (100mg per day).
Given the urgency to do the embryo freezing now before treatment starts it makes me think once I am on the drugs the eggs are basically unusable. If that’s not the case I’m unsure why I can’t continue to try and freeze more embryos on desatinib.
Any and all info/comments would be much appreciated!
