Re: February/March cycle

Hope you don't mind me joining in. I start down regging on 16th Feb. I'm on the long protocol and this is my second round. We got to egg collection stage in November 2019 and got fertilised eggs but by day 5 none had developed enough to transfer. Hoping and praying we get to transfer stage and beyon...

Re: October/November Cycle 2019

How many follicles did they found ? Buserelin is similar with Progynova i think. How is your AMH? Are you doing private? xxxx No follicles yet as only just started stimming. My scan next Tuesday will (hopefully!) show some follicles. Yes we’re going private as we don’t qualify for NHS funding. Mond...

Re: October/November Cycle 2019

Stay strong Rebecca. It's so easy to assume the worst but until you take the test you don't know for sure what's been happening down there these last few weeks! Wishing you the very best of luck. And well done for not caving in and testing early - must be so hard to resist! I've just started stims ...

Re: October/November Cycle 2019

Hi ladies, no luck for me this time. I feel almost relieved that the uncertainty is gone. Very sad obviously, but having a big strong coffee and will have a nice Rioja with my dinner later. Will worry about next steps another day. It was always a long shot. I think we’ll take a bit of a break now a...

Re: First round IVF October 2019

How are you feeling? Does it feel real yet?? Such amazing news!

I’ve got my baseline scan tomorrow. Really hoping the down reg has worked and we can move on to stims.

Re: First round IVF October 2019

That’s good. I’m taking some time off during egg collection and transfer week but like you I’d rather be busy. How did you feel during stims? Wishing you all the best for Friday. It will be here before you know it!

Re: First round IVF October 2019

Great news you’ve got this far. Best of luck with the 2 week wait. Have you got time off work? Try to use the time to treat yourself and take some time to yourself. Find a good book / box set or whatever floats your boat!

Re: Worried about sperm sample on day of egg collection

Thanks Flash 19. Unfortunatey I think this would make it even worse - my hubby preferes to be discreet - even providing a sample whilst we're both at home he's felt awkward about it. I'm sure he'll be fine but having a back up if things don't go to plan on the day would be peace of mind for us both.

Re: First round IVF October 2019

Just touching base to see where everyone is up to. We started the down reg last Friday (we're on the long protocol) and it's going ok so far. Getting used to the injections and (thankfully) no side effects as yet. Hoping it stays that way! Currently waiting for period which is due anytime although I...

Worried about sperm sample on day of egg collection

My husband is really anxious about doing his sperm sample on egg collection day. He has found providing samples from home for the purpose of sperm tests really difficult and is dreading having to do it at the clinic and under time pressures too. We felt relieved when we were told we could do a froze...

Injections start today for me! I'm weirdly excited. Just want to get going with it all now after waiting to get to this stage for so long.

Re: First IVF cycle starting Oct 19 - Manchester

Ah I see - so is your FSH high or low? Why would that determine if you're funded or not?? Yes mine too - Im 39 next month and get married in May 21 so would love for our miracle to happen soon. Do you have any other children? Fingers crossed AF arrives for us both next week (or sooner!) xx FSH was ...

Hi there and I really do hope it goes well for you too :) Ohh yes brilliant we are very close! We're on the short protocol so fingers crossed AF arrives Monday 14th and I can start my injections on the Tuesday! Are you NHS funded or private? Also, how old are you?

I was nervous about the injections but as soon as you have done the 1st one it becomes 2nd nature. I have my down re...

Re: First round IVF October 2019

I'm sure the injections will be fine - like you say the first time will be the hardest but we'll soon get used to it. I've just had a blood test to check my FSH level as a final bid to get NHS funding. Every time I've done it it's not met the criteria for funding but I'm told it can fluctuate each m...

First round IVF October 2019

Any other first timers out there? We are due to start mid October. Would be great to have someone in the same boat to share experiences with.
